SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher is not fully drying dishes

Are you using jet dry or a similar drying agent? If not you should be. Also check to make sure the heater is getting hot in the dry cycle, just place your hand over the heating element to see if it's generating heat, don't touch it as it will burn you.

SOURCE: Dishes not drying and mildew growing in dishwasher

I totally agree with Solution #1. We have a Whirlpool (apparently Maytag is the same) and it gets moldy 2 days after it has been run. The maintenance guy came out and said we had to use the rinse cycle every day. For an $800 dollar dishwasher (which is less than 1 year old!) I expect more.

SOURCE: dishes are not dry anymore after cycle?

Hello there:
If` you ahve already checked all of the filters and they are ok than your drying cycle has problems to check these check these: Heating element Drying fan Thermostat Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element. Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it. Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat. there:
Normally if you have just started to have this problem and you have checked all of the filters and are sure they are ok than

Dishwasher not completely drying


The dishwasher does not dry the dishes, it is the residual heat remaining from the washing water that dries the dishes.
Once the washing cycle is over, opening the door and pulling the top drawer out slightly to keep the door ajar will create a small opening which allows the steam to escape and the dishes then dry a lot quicker.

LG LDF6810 not drying dishes


I have also found this happening. I have found that if you switch the dishwasher off 2-4 minutes into the dry cycle and leave it for a few hours or over night the dishes are completely dry

Machine does not wash an dry dishes some time washes but doesnt dry dishes machine starts up an starts to go through cycle but goes on an on takes ages 2 complete cycle at end of cycle dishes not done


Probably heating element gone, or could be the heating circuit relay on the on board computer.
Not easy DIY jobs unless you are confident.
I found one pin (pin 3) on the relay had blown away, taking with it some of the PCB board, but other have experienced the solder just melting off the pin.

I bought some spare Relays, and rerouted the tracks on the PCB, and it has sort of fixed it - well it heats and seems to be working. The timer is still telling me 73mins instead of 35mins, though the cycle only takes 35mins.

The dishwasher doesnot dry anything.


  • Check the rinse aid indicator beside the rinse aid dispenser cap. If the indicator window is clear, refill the dispenser. The dishwasher will retain moisture and the heat dry option will not perform properly without rinse aid. Turn the dispenser cap clockwise and lift it up to remove it. Pour rinse aid into the dispenser until the indicator appears full. Place the dispenser cap over the dispenser and turn it counterclockwise to tighten it.

  • Load the dishes properly so that all dishes can drain after the rinse cycle. Do not overload the dishwasher. Towel-dry plastic dishes because they will not dry completely during the dry cycle.

  • Select the heated dry option on the dishwasher. The air-dry and energy-saving dry options will not perform as well as the heated dry.

    Dirty Dishes


    Hello Peter, Welcome to Fixya. I'm going to start by asking a couple of questions, but that is part of a proper and thorough diagnosis from afar...in my opinion. Does a "normal" wash cycle take longer then 2 - 3 hrs ? Do the dishes appear to be dry when the dishwasher completes the cycle ? Further to this question, does there appear to be any heat in the machine upon completion of the cycle ? I ask these questions specifically because heat is a crucial factor in desolving the detergent ( usually a minimum of 145F ) and thus cleaning the dishes as well as allowing the dishes to dry properly when cleaned. If we could start here I will be better equipped to helping you solve your dishwasher troubles and with any luck assisting you in repairing it yourself. I'll watch for your reply and we'll go from there. macmarkus :)

    The water does not heat up and the dishes do not dry


    A dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif that suddenly stops going through the cycles or never completely dry dishes probably has a faulty thermostat. The thermostat controls the heating elements for water and drying. If the thermostat is stuck, the dishwasher won't go to the next cycle because the minimum water temperature requirement is never met. Drying dishes also requires the temperature to get high enough to do the job.
    1. Step 1 Remove the front plate of the dishwasher and locate the thermostat. If the thermostat is not located in the front of the unit pull the dishwasher out and remove the back access panel.
    2. Step 2 Disconnect any wires or other parts that are in the way. Separate the wires with a flat blade screwdriver carefully to keep the wires from breaking.
    3. Step 3 Take out the screws attaching the thermostat to the firewall and remove it from the dishwasher. Verify the replacement part matches the original, including the wire connector.
    4. Step 4 Place the new thermostat into place and secure it with the screws. Connect the wires and replace any parts or cables. Attach the front or back plate and replace any molding.
    5. Step 5 Run a hot water cycle and verify the water is heating and the cycle is able to complete. Check the drying cycle and prepare the first load of dishes.

    Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


    Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

    You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

    Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

    My bosch dishwasher will not dry the dishes


    this dw to save energy works this way- the final rinse will reach a temp of 161 F . the dishes have to absorb this heat. when the cycle is complete the dishes become a heater in themselves radiating the heat they absorbed during the final 161 F heat. If you have any tupperware or plastic dishes in the unit they will not absorb heat therefore not radiate the 161 f temp need to dry all the dishes. try to avoid plastic items and they must always have jet dry. this is the european way of conserving energy. on the old ge or whirlpool they had electric element in the bottom that would bake the dishes dry ....not these..but they do save alot of energy.. it helps right after a cycle to crack the door open release all the steam from the unit
