Rinse Cycle Finishes but Drying Cycle Doesn't Start

When I run any program that includes a drying cycle, the machine runs as far as the end of the rinse cycle but then seems to get stuck with 1 minute showing on the clock. It is making a slight noise at this point, but it does not sound like a water noise and if you open the machine, the water appears to have drained out. A reset (A + C buttons) is the only way of stopping it, but the contents have not been dried. I have cleaned the filters and cleaned a small amount of debris from around the pump wheel which runs freely, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Are there any sensors I can clean/check, or is it likely that the control board has a problem? How can I tell?

Re: Rinse Cycle Finishes but Drying Cycle Doesn't Start

Does this unit run for hours with 1 min remaining? if so you need to replace the controll board. I have soldered some with sucess but it "Should be replaced" You also need to make sure you have just dry liquid in the unit and "Don't use soap tabs" 1 -3 tsp of soap that is all. If you are good with mech work I can walk you through the way to check ths unit out to tell what the problem is.....

The dishwasher runs through it's cycle but does not clean the dishes properly and leaves a cloudy film and smears on the inside of the machine and the dishes

    Common Problem
  1. Confirm the wash water is hot
    1. Try heated wash(sani wash) if available
    2. Run hot water in sink to warm up before starting
    3. At least 120 degree Fahrenheit water temperature
  2. Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
    1. Confirm wash arm has rotated
    2. Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
    3. Use small tweezers to remove
    4. Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
  3. Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
    1. Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
    2. Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
  4. Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
    1. Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
    2. Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
    3. Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
  5. It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
  6. If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.

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.

When we take the dishes out they are all wet

Choose the hottest rinse cycle first Economy cycles don't work properly Make sure you have rinse aid in the dispenser. Make sure the machine is heating properly too. An aid do drying is to open the door of the dishwasher just when the cycle finishes steam should come out and the water in the cabinet will condense to the walls and dry the dishes. some top end models do this with a push rod..... believe it or not (Miele) go to my website for a detailed explanation about drying you can contact me from there too for further follow up good luck

Dishes are not always dry, even after sitting overnight


make sure you are using rinse aid as this helps to evaporate the water at the end of the cycle in the drying stage. I know tablets have rinse aid built into the tablet but this can wash away on some wash cycles and do nothing so even if you are using tablets i reccommend still using rinse aid.

Does not seem like the dishwasher is drying like it used to. After it has gone through its entire cycle the is steam condensation on all the dishes and the inner door. Previously, at the end of cycle...

Have you run out of Rinse Aid ?
This has a large effect on drying as well as how clean the dishes come out. Rinse aid [breaks up] the water dispersion, so at the end of the final rinse, the water just falls off the dishes, takes the sediment with it. So with the heat of the final rinse, & less water left on the dishes, they dry better.

Dishlex dx 403 does not dry dishes - fan dry on red led

Ther have been a lot of complaints about the drying performance of these machines. One solution suggested by Electrolux is to use the "anti bacterial" wash mode, as this is a higher temperature wash, therefore dishes dry better. If you are using Eco wash or Quick wash, drying performance is not very good- Electrolux recommend leaving door ajar at end of cycle to improve drying. Also, ensure your Rinse Aid compartment is topped up, as Rinse Aid greatly improves drying performance.
-Please note: these dishwashers will not dry plastics and other items that do not hold the heat very well!!
-Also, you should be able to hear the drying fan running at the end of cycle- if not, then you may have faulty fan (uncommon), or control board (more common).
Good luck!!

Bosch SHX33A runs continuously. Never finishes cycle.

I have a guide here to walk you through the process of clearing the drain system. You most likely have a clog somewhere and the dishwasher can't proceed because it would cause it to flood.

Dishes not dry at end of cycle

check to see if your jet dry dispenser is empty and on some of them you can turn them up higher its important to use a rinse agent back when everyone was trying to cut down on energy use the only way to to it was to cut back on drying time so they came up with jet dry which creates a sheeting action and causes most of the water to run off before the drying cycle

Dishwasher problem

My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element?
