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

Is it best to air dry or heat dry dishes in a dish washer?


Heat dry will consume steam which is generated by heating the water inside the dishwasher. Air dry is natural but will take longer cycle time. Use rinse aid to improve air dryer and aviod water spots on glass.

The dishwasher doesnot dry anything.


  • 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.

    Dryer


    Had the same problem and the answer is to stop putting plastic in the machine ! It seems the dishwashers need the heat radiated from the Ceramic plates, stell knives etc to help dry. The plastic simply absorbs some water and then your dishwahser spends most of its drying time trying to get that water out again. Also Plastic doesn't radiate any heat to help. As soon as we stopped putting plastic plates and tupperware containers in, hey presto the dishes are drying again

    Whirlpool dishwasher QUIET PARTNER II doesn't clean dishes, leaves film


    If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

    Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

    **Water temperature Note***

    To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

    Concerning the Film.

    This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic.

    I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1, Model DU1055XTPQO. I use Cascade w/Dawn Shine Shield powdered detergent(filled to the mark on the dispenser cup) and Jet Dry Drying Agent. Problem is all of my glasware...


    its not soap actually it is calcium build up. The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

    Whirlpool dishwasher is not fully drying dishes


    Are you using jet dry or a similar drying agent? If not you should be. Also check to make sure the heater is getting hot in the dry cycle, just place your hand over the heating element to see if it's generating heat, don't touch it as it will burn you.

    Dishes stay wet after cycle


    No drain hose routing has nothing to do with drying performance. The biggest thing that affects drying performance is water temp. Modern dishwashers use such a small amount of water is usually never gets very hot before the dishwasher has reached its full level. You can try to select hi temp wash and that should help. Also make sure that heat dry is selected. Also you really to purchase jet dry and install in dispenser. This will improve drying as well.
