How long is dough setting on bread machine?

How long is the dough cycle on a bread machine? It would depend on the bread machine brand and model but generally the dough cycle would be around 1.5 hours. In the initial 15-30 minutes the bread machine kneads the dough and then it rests which allows the dough to go through the first rise.
