Don't know which model you have but if it is one with drying capability then there would be a button or switch on control panel to use this feature. If you have this option and it is selected then possibly the heater coil is no longer good or possibly switch.

You dont really need it, when the washer gets done Open the door for a minute and let the steam out and shut the door dishes will then dry. the reason there still wet is because of the steam from the Hot water

Hello, I've got a suggestion and at first it may sound like I'm pulling it out of my...left field. I'll tell you the what and then I'll explain why. Try this, take a rag or paper towel and soak it with "rinse aid" AKA, "jet dry" and apply it to the top of the tub and to a lesser degree the sides as well. I suggest this to all my customer's with new dishwasher's. Now the why...all dishwasher's require assistance to dry your dishes, some more than other's. Hence the need for an additive such as jet dry, it is simply a wetting agent which help's the water run off the dishes and as a result they dry better. So why put it on the tub ? Glad you asked. The reason is exactly the same, on older dishwasher's that have had many year's of use the tub has already built up some wetting agent on the tub just by normal and continued use, the new obviously has not. The only jet dry the new one has is the added amount in the dispenser. Over a short time of regular use the unit would start to dry better on it's own, this just speed's up the process. By adding the jet dry to the tub you create a seathing action allowing water to run off before & during the dry cycle as to not have water in the form of condensation dripping back onto the dishes when the cycle is complete, which leaves you with dry dishes as opposed to wet dishes. Make sense ? I hope so, it really work's. Hope you found this helpful. If so please rate the info you received frome jere at "fixya" today and good luck. Let me know if I can assist you further. I hope you didn't find this too difficult to read, I had to use my iphone, it's the only internet connection I have at the moment. Macmarkus :)
