Question about Bosch 24 in. SHX99A15UC Stainless Steel Dishwasher
We have a new Bosch dishwasher and after a wash/dry cycle, the dishes are still fairly wet. We put in liquid drying agent and still have wet dishes. Is it possible that we overfilled with the agent. Any ideas would be appreciated.
The dishwasher does not have a heating element to dry the dishes. If you wash glass or ceramic dishes and cups then the rinse cycle makes them hot enough to dry without a heating element but if you wash a lot of plastic this process does not work very well. Open the door after the load is washed and leave them to air dry for several hours and you will be fine.
The manual states that there is no heating element to dry dishes. The high heat content of porcelain, glass, or metal dishes enables them to get hot and stay hot long enough to get dry without a heater. Plastic does not have nearly as high a heat content so they cool down much more quickly and don't get dry.

Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...

There is no heating element on the bosch or any other european brand. wash dishes overnight and the dishes will be dry by morning.

Heating element is probably not working.
most units fail, if they are going to, when new.
if you have a warranty, call bosch.
