Hi, my westinghouse wsf6605xr dishwasher is not drying dishes. Any ideas?


The heating element may be burned out, pull it out and test it for continuity of the coil.

Dishwasher not heating


I am guessing the hot water is not hooked up. Depending on the type of dishwasher and the setup of you kitchen, you can try to hook it up. You will need to pull it out to fix the heating.

I have a Westinghouse SB915SJ*00 dishwasher. It runs right through a cycle but does not heat. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Hello

The majority of dishwashers are not connected to hot water from the mains but heat up the water internally using the heating element, located in the tub of the dishwasher, controlled by a thermostat. When the dishwasher has a fault with heating, the program will run but not complete and will show an error code on the display panel. Dishes won't be cleaned properly and the detergent won't dissolve.

If your dishwasher does bring in hot water externally from the mains to check the water is warm and there are no problems with the inlet. If the dishwasher heats internally then it is most likely a faulty heating element or thermostat. A fault like this will usually require a replacement part and a repair, but you can check the heating element with a voltmeter to ensure that it is the cause of the problem before calling out for a service engineer.

Does the dishwasher model GDB742RJS0 have a heating element or does it require a cold and hot water hook up thanks


Yes, your dishwasher has a heating element. You only need a hot water hook up. attached is a picture of some of the parts in your dishwasher. The heating element is #1. It is located at the bottom.

Hope this clear things up.

Dishwasher not emptying


either the pump is not working or the discharge hose is clogged, if you have an air gap on the sink take the hose off and hold it down see if the water comes out by tself if so the pump is bad if not the drain is colgged take out the bottom tray you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver take the plastic screen cover plate off clear it of debris, there is a sharp metal blade in there so be careful, after cleaning it out turn on to rinse and see if it drains if not you will need to either replace the dishwasher or the pump, dollar for dollar new dishwasher time
