Question about Miele Inspira Series Dishwasher w/ 6 Programs and 5 Temperatures - G2120 / G2120BL - Blac 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher
I have new Miele Inspira g2182scsf. I haven't had overly full loads and there's lots of space between dishes. I use jetdry rinse aid. I use finish detergent tabs. Yet, even after long long normal wash/rinse/dry cycle, dishes are still wet. I sometimes leave them in for an hour after cycle over and they're still wet. Why?

SOURCE: FOOD PARTICLES ON DISHES
If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:
Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.
When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it.
Internal filters Every dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:
Drain valve Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.
Spray arms There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.
If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary.
Water temperature To get the best cleaning results, the water entering your dishwasher needs to be hot enough. Try running the hot water in your kitchen sink for about 30 seconds before starting the dishwasher, to pre-heat it. Also, if your dishwasher lets you select a higher wash or rinse temperature, try that to see if it helps.
To check the temperature of the hot water that comes from your kitchen faucet use a waterproof thermometer. If the water isn't 120 degrees Fahrenheit, your dishwasher may have trouble getting your dishes clean. You could increase the temperature of the hot water to the whole house--and therefore the dishwasher--by adjusting the hot water heater thermostat.
Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
Detergent cup Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.
If the detergent cup isn't opening, see the "The detergent cup doesn't open" section, below.

SOURCE: LG LDF6810ST Dishes Wet
To save energy, the LG LDFx810 dishwasher product family does not turn on the heating element during the drying cycle (third blue light blinking) rather it brings the final rinse water up to a high temp (I think it is 160 degrees (f)) and then uses a condensing drying system (mounted in the door) to pull the wet, hot air from inside the dishwasher. When it works, the dishes come out pretty dry (except for some plastics)
-When the DW does its final drain, confirm that the water drained into the garbage disposal is really hot and not just warm. Be careful to not burn yourself and use a meat thermometer if you have one.
- After the water drains for the final time and the dishwasher blinks the third light, put you hand under the left hand side of the DW door. There is a slot down there that should be exhausting warm air.
If either thing is not happening, it is time to get a professional to check things out and make repairs.
Please post back here with what you find or have further questions, OK?
