Question about Whirlpool MDBH969AWB Builtin Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher is not drying. At end of cycle, dishes are still wet and damp, as well as the inside. Buttons are all pushed. Also, it seems to wash for more than one cycle. Did a light wash and after 1-1/2 hrs., it was still running. Purchased a couple of months ago. Dishes don't seem to be as clean as my old dishwasher.

SOURCE: Dishwasher stopped drying dishes at end of cycle

There is a heating element in the bottom of the washer. It is burned out and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Dishwasher not drying

Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...

My dishwasher is left quite wet inside after washing dishes. Is this unusual, especially for an expensive Viking dishwasher that is brand new?


make sure you have selected the heated dry option. for the smell, add a 1/2 cup of white vinegar to wash cycle.

The dishwasher dose not get hot at all and when it has finished washing every thing is still wet


  • Well, the dishes inside the dishwasher will still be wet unless you use a dry cycle at the end of the washing cycle. Not all dishwashers have this option. Even though mine does I rarely use it as the dishes will dry on their own in two hours.Saves a little money. Even when washing on a normal cycle the dishwasher itself should not get hot. It may blow a little steam out the front vent. Hope this helps.

Dishwasher not drying dished with any heat source. Dishes washed in cold water.


Most dishwashers are plumbed to the hot side of the hot water side of the faucet. This should provide hot water for washing the dishes. Perhaps this dishwasher was plumbed to the cold water side by mistake.

Most dishwashers have a heating coil most of the way around under the bottom sliding/rolling dish rack. The heating coil may not be working, which would be consistent with the dishes not drying at the end of the cycle. Possible causes include incorrect setting selected on control console (push buttons) or timer, heating coil disconnected from electrical source at one end or both ends, faulty control circuit inside the timer, faulty wiring between the timer/control circuit and the heating coil, burned or pitted contacts in the control circuit.

Dishes are still damp after cycle is complete. This causes a bad odor in the dishwasher.


Bad odor is caused by something besides wet dishes.

When the water finishes it's part and is exhausted, does a fan come on and run for a long time? If not, the drying fan is bad, usually mounted on the side and runs after all the water is removed. Also, after the water stops, are the dishes and inside HOT? You have to have HOT water to make a dishwasher function properly, will also take care of some of that odor. When a dishwasher cycles, it washes and then heats the inside of the washer, then it runs a fan to remove the water and dry the dishes.

Make sure your dishwasher is hooked to the HOT water line and also check to be sure it can heat it's own water, put it on pot's and pans and it should heat the water quite hot, even if it has hot water coming in, it will heat it up some more.

''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)


I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.

Are you using a rinse aid like Jet Dry??  All dishwasher manufacturers now require that you use rinse aid for drying dishes at the end of the cycle.
