Dishwasher runs long on short cycle

I have a rental condo and the tenant complained last month that the dishwasher didn't get her "silverware clean". Went over and there was hardened soap in the dispenser and bottom of dishwasher.

Cleaned that out, ran vinegar through the cycle...everything seemed to be good.

Now, she says that she puts it on "short cycle" and it's still running when she gets home from work and "not getting the dishes clean".

So how is this one fixed? Is it the timer, maybe?

Thank you!

If the dishwasher is literally running for hours on end and never advancing, then it sounds like the timer motor (part of the cycle switch) is broken. Either replace the timer switch assy. or consider replacing the whole dishwasher (the last timer switch I bought was around $100 for the part alone).

It's a Frigidaire Ultra Quiet II; model # is FDB635RFS3. I can't find that in any searches.
