Concerning my Kenmore Dishwasher Model 3631532. How long is the final rinse cycle? Is it more than 5 minutes? Enough to kill bacteria?

We're under a "boil water" advisory (in Montgomery County MD) and have learned from CDC's website that "Cryptosporidium on equipment/utensils/tableware/dishwasher-safe toys may be disinfected using dishwashing machines that have a dry cycle or a final rinse that exceeds 113°F for 20 minutes or 122°F for 5 minutes or 162°F for 1 minute."

I did check the product manual & do realize that the water temp is up to us, but I couldn't find out how LONG that last rinse cycle is. Hence my question. THANK YOU!!
