A model number may help others help you.

Extra long cycle times are often caused by a heater problem.
The unit is waiting for the water to hit a set point temperature. It never does so it eventually times out and continues the cycle.

Usual causes are a blown heater, an open hi-limit thermostat or a bad control board.

On some units one of the door switches is just for the heater so that may also be the cause.
