Bosch dishwasher not 'steaming' plates dry

Hi. My Bosch dishwasher used to give off loads of steam when I opened the door just after it finished it's cycle - now there is no steam whatsoever and the plates etc are cold and not completely dry. Do I need a new heating element or what could be the problem??

Dishwasher not drying the dishes using the fan when the programme finishes


It is likely the rinse aid is low or empty. Check the rinse aid dispenser to see level of rinse aid. Also make sure when you open the dishwasher at end of dry cycle that it is hot inside. Otherwise most likely there is not enough steam as the heater may not be working to capacity or the thermostat is not regulating the water temperature to generate steam for drying.

Not sure this is the model but the inside stays wet after dry cycle - all stainless steel inside. WHY? and what should I do?


These units are made by Bosch and they have passive heaters. Use Jet Dry Turbo in your rinse aid compartment and make sure you are there to open the door when the dishwasher ends. If you wait for hours until the dishwasher cools down to open the door, the steam will recondensate and the inside will be wet.

Dishwasher does not dry all the disher water lef on dishes


Make sure your machine is not over loaded.
When you open up the door when machine has just finished do you get a cloud of steam ?
If not the drier element has blown and will need to be replaced.

The dishes are pretty wet as is the inside of the dishwasher after a regular run. will a rinse agent fix this?


Rinse aid will help.The Bosch dishwasher uses the captured heat from the water to dry the dishes.turn on your dishwasher ,wait 20 mins and open door .Does steam come out?if yes rinse aid should do trick,if not water is not heating and you probably have a bad e.control (common problem)est repair cost in Boston area $229.. Hope this helps ,please rate my response :)

Door gasket or sealOver time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak.

Wet dishes; steam does not escape


Hi, Most dishwashers do not have steam vents! there are several reasons for poor drying in a d/washer! The first one is to see that you have rinse aid in the machine as this aids drying! Next if you have rinse aid then is it being put into the machine when it needs it? Also you must bear in mind that the dishwasher need to heat on the last rinse to create the heat to dry the items which use the steam to dry them. Check the rinse aid first and see how you get on....
Let me know.......

Drying cycle problems


Take the door fascia off, and you'll see a pipe from the steam outlet to the Soap Dispenser in the door.
Take that off, and flush out the small bit of food that is blocking the tube.
Put the cleared pipe back in situ.
Run machine, you should get steam, and no water.
When it blocks again, and you get the water again, repeat unblocking process etc...
