Question about Dishwashers
First how old is unit ??? new to you??? a few things to check on your part, for better results run the hot water in your sink b4 you start your d/w. are you using a rinse agent (Rinse Aid) newer machines actually count on this for better drying. is everything soaking wet as if never attempted to dry or are certain items not drying. for example Tupperware, plastics( sippey cups), and some silverware may not ever come dry. newer d/w heat the dish to a certain temp and then rely on the residual heat of the dish to evaporate its own water, and obviously plastics can never be heated to that temp (and certain silverware metal) si the never completely dry. in not saying you dont have a heater issue, but check into these few things first. The heater can be check with a simple continuity test.The heater leads are directly under and behind unit.Sometimes just a visual inspection of heate will deem it bad

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.
