Dishwasher not drying

About a couple of weeks ago, unloaded dishwasher, only to find everything wet. I since noticed that it sometimes seems to be on wash cycle for a long time - about 2.5 hours after I switched it on. (Unfortunately I've never sat and watched it all the way through, as I do have a life!) Occasionally it dries fine, and rest of time - I'm not sure whether it just sticks on wash for a very long time, or goes through whole cycle and then starts washing again. Any ideas ??

Re: Dishwasher not drying

I've recently had the same problem. My theory (to be confirmed) is that the heating element is not working properly (in my case not at all). This may be the element itself or the control for the element. This, I think, may account for the machine running for so long - it is waiting for the water to reach operating temp before timing the wash cycle. This also explains why the dishes do not dry. I aim to investigate this theory over the weekend !!

Dishwasher is not drying. At end of cycle, dishes are still wet and damp, as well as the inside. Buttons are all pushed. Also, it seems to wash for more than one cycle. Did a light wash and after 1-1/2...

Check your heating element..

Leaks when being unloaded

I may not have the full solution here, but to avoid (expensive) sub-floor damage, I recommend you do the following.  Assuming that the water is not coming from some dripping between the opened door at the hinge....
-Remove the kick plate that is in the bottom, front of the dishwasher.
Use a flashlight to look for wet flooring.  Run the dishwasher with the kick plate removed, watching for leaks/dripping.  It is possible for a leak to seep under the floor.  If leaking is found, do not ignore it.  Pull the dishwasher, fix the leak or replace the dishwasher.  Remove the first layer of sub-floor under the dishwasher, looking for deeper damage.
You should probably do the same with the carpeted area.  Pull the carpet back and decide if the sub-floor needs to be replaced.  A flooring expert should probably inspect.
Sorry to be such an alarmist, but I have been around floor damage that was unnoticed and ignored.

Dishwasher will not fill. Water lines have been checked and filters are clean

Flow detection shot?
Expensive one I had couple of months ago on a Bauknecht. 300 dollars. New machine at 250. Scrapped it.
Flow detector was coupled at automatic waterstop.
Beware if you have a old machine drying with hot air, most all new models use condensation leaving your dishes etc a bit bit wet :(

Frigidaire FDB710LCS0 Dishwasher dial seems to stick?

I had the same problem. Turn the HIGH TEMP buttons off. Simply turning them off corrected this problem for me. Mine got stuck in two places and I had to manually turn the dials or the washer would run all night.
