First, make sure you are using Jet-Dry (or equivalent) rinse-aid. As part of this "green", ecological, environmentalist-wacko movement, dishwasher makers have cut down on the amount of heat generated by the heating element, and as a consequence, it is now imperitive that you use rinse-aid to help with the drying. Note: Finish Corp (the makers of Jet-Dry) now make a version called "Turbo-Dry". Try that (if you can find it). If you try that, and it still won't dry, then you may have a bad heating element, or else a bad controller.

Dx 302 wont dry dishes


The model you specified is unknown to me and I'll try to explain how drying works generally in the dishwasher.
Dishes absorbs heat and cools more slowly than a very thin wall of stainless steel.
The consequence is that water evaporates and in accordance with the Mollier diagram begins to condense on the walls of the stainless steel whose temperature is lower due to faster cooling of the dishes.
Now drying can be divided into two categories. Active and passive.
Passive way of drying the natural circulation of moist air and condensation in the condenser, which is usually located on the left or right side of the dishwasher.
Active way of drying works on the principle of forced circulation humid air with fun helping quickly condenses and thus speeds up the drying of dishes.
In passive mode the drying process can speed up the partial opening of the door.

Heating problem on dishwasher


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. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

Water not heating up and not drying


Hello

If your dishwasher is not heating properly, troubleshoot the issue. You can often repair this problem and eliminate service fees.

Incoming Water
Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat
The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.


Heating Element/Drying Fan

The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

Additional Concerns

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon dishes don't usually completely dry. You must towel-dry these items.

Bosch dishwasher she45m


Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.
