There are a few possibities...
check the spray arms are clear by removing any blockages in the holes, check that there is enough water entering the d/w by removing the lid (no screws on lid, there are two clips at the rear, release them and the whole lid will slide back and then off) and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you should check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 0428 and 0426. Whilst you have the side panel of, fill the d/w and once the inlet valve closing, reset the machine and watch the drainage thru the left chamber is flowing ok. You can also remove 0420 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removed) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. If the d/w is connected via a sealed spigot to the sink, remove the grey hose and unscrew the spigot adaptor from the sink and ensure there are no blockages.
You have not mentioned that the d/w is not heating so I assume it is, as this could be a problem also. However, although the machine is heating the water is distributed via a motor attached to the heater box that alternates the water between the top and bottom basket. If this is faulty you will find that the d/w will clean one of the baskets beautifully and the other not at all. (unfortunately this will req a new instantaneous water heater which is best fitted by an expert)

I appreciate that this is not you model but the parts should be in the same position.
If you req any further assistance pls repost, if this is helpful pls leave feedback.
Best of luck.

My indesit dishwasher is not drying when the cycle is finish


Possibly the drying /heater element is faulty. Check the machine isn't on a non drying cycle. Some machines will do the last rinse in hot water but leave the dishes to drip dry in the hot humid air after the rinse. If the dishes or water isn't hot during a rinse , I would say its the element.

How do I turn up the heat to remove most condensation after washing?


As part of the current ecological, energy-saving, environmentalist-wacko movement, dishwasher makers have cut back on the heating used to dry dishes. In fact in many dishwasher designs, they have eliminated the drying vent altogether, and instead use a condensate or condensation-drying system. In this system, the last rinse cycle is heated to a high temperature, to heat the dishes. The water is then pumped out, and the dishwasher shuts down. The theory is that water will evaporate off the hot dishes, condense on the sides of the dishwasher, and run back down into the sump area. Bosch was one of the first diswashers to do this, and it works fairly well for them. Other manufacturers have tried this, with varying results. Here's what you can do to improve drying:
1. It is imperative that you use rinse-aid (Jet-Dry). This allows more water to flow off the dishes and what flows off does not need to evaporate.
2. If the dishwasher has the options, turn on high-temperature wash and sani-rinse. This gets the dishes hotter for better evaporation.
It is possible that the heater may not be working at all, and that will cause poor washing performance and no drying. This is very rare in dishwashers less than 3 years old. Most likely, poor drying in a new dishwasher is caused because you are not using rinse-aid.

check your heater, check for continuity on the heater it should ohm out.
does the heater get hot?
are you running hot water at the sink before pushing the start button?
are you using a rinse agent such as jet dry?

When the wash cycle is done, the dishes are wet


It seems that the newer dishwashers are worse at drying dishes than their tupperware melting predecessors were. They have all been tuned down, and do dry less. The only thing that you can do is to set your machine for the hottest wash, power dry and use a rinse agent that provides a sheeting action. Some folks use white vinegar as a supplement to their rinse aid, which has the added bonus of killing mold. Water also stays attached if the water has laid down minerals as noted by cloudy glassware. If this is the case, a dishwasher filter (dishwasherfilter.com, $70) might help. We try to wash hot, with a power dry and use a rinse aid/vinegar. Then, when the cycle is complete, but the dishes are still hot, we open the dishwasher, and "jiggle" the racks to get the excess water off of the glasses, and leave the dishwasher open about 2" at the top, so the dishes will continue to air dry. This has been an effective method for us.
Best regards, --W/D--

My bosch dishwasher will not dry the dishes


this dw to save energy works this way- the final rinse will reach a temp of 161 F . the dishes have to absorb this heat. when the cycle is complete the dishes become a heater in themselves radiating the heat they absorbed during the final 161 F heat. If you have any tupperware or plastic dishes in the unit they will not absorb heat therefore not radiate the 161 f temp need to dry all the dishes. try to avoid plastic items and they must always have jet dry. this is the european way of conserving energy. on the old ge or whirlpool they had electric element in the bottom that would bake the dishes dry ....not these..but they do save alot of energy.. it helps right after a cycle to crack the door open release all the steam from the unit

Doesnt dry dishes


The heater on this unit only comes on twice, once in the wash cycle, and again in the Sanitary rinse. During the drying cycle all that happens is a vent opens and a fan comes on. The fan removes the hot moist air from the unit and the dishes dry off. If your water is not hot enough, this is why your dishes are still wet. Rinse aid also helps to sheen off the excess water as well.

Dishes and inside the washer are not drying


Make sure that the drain hose is connected as per manufacturer instructions, and that there isn't a direct run down from the sink u-bend to the machine. The rinse agent effects dishes dry but has nothing with the water remaining in the machine. Good luck!
