My model KUDS30IXBL will wash and clean the dishes, but then stops and all lights are off. It doesn't complete the heated drying process and the light doesn't come on that the cycle is completed, just...


I would guess it "thinks" it has finished drying because the temperature is high enough. Could be a sensor or control problem. What happens if you switch to air dry? That may be a temporary solution.

Dishwasher doesn t dry


A simple solution would be to not select Heat Dry if you have that option on your machine. When the washing cycle is complete, open the door partially (4 to 6 inches) to allow the hot water vapors to escape.
Evaporation will dry the dishes in the lower section and the warm dishes can be returned to your cabinet.
Glasses, etc., from the upper section can be removed and stored.
In the remaining space on the upper level. Cups that may have some water remaining in the depressions at the bottom of the cup are turned horizontally in the basket so the water from the depressions can drain. Some minimal wiping may be necessary prior to storage.
Not only have we solved the drying problem we have added some humidity to the air; do not have to worry about a non-functional switch and reduced our electric bill as well.
As a side note, once all of the above has been completed we never close the door completely but leave it an inch or two from a complete close; this will not compress the door gaskets and will add to their service life.
Hope this helps!

Fan is noisy intermittently well after wash is finished


It depends on what model you have. The fan is usually operating when the dry cycle is on. The dry cycle can be quite long compared to the actual wash (which ends when the rinse water is drained out). The dry cycle uses the steam in the dishwasher to circulate around the dishes. The fan keeps running until the full cycle is complete. If you are hearing heavy noises when the fan is running, then the bearing of the fan maybe damaged and you need to replace the fan.

The heating cycle has changed and there is now a shorter cooler activity


the fan is probably busted. may just need to replace the fan. but if its washing the dishes fine and drying them , then you probably shouldnt worry too much about it.

My Bosch Dishwasher is not drying my dishes now. The model number is SHE44C05UC.


Hi there,

Unfortunately, it seems that the heating element has failed. The dishwasher uses steam to heat the tub to dry the dishes. I suspect your dishes are also being washed in cold water.

To check this, please run a regular full wash cycle. Allow the washer to fill with water and run for about 10 minutes, then open the door and feel the water temperature in the bottom of the washer. If the water is cold, it's more than likely the heating element has failed.

There are other possible faults which would cause the element not to heat, but these often prevent the dishwasher from completing the cycle. If the water is cold but the dishwasher still drains the water at the end - and completes the cycle - the heating element has probably failed.

Please try this simple test for water temperature and let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Dishwasher leaving a white film on dishes after wash/dry cycle


Well, that usually happens if the water in the area has too much alkali metals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Try putting some salt together with the detergent before you start the cycle.
And if it still does, try washing the finished dishes again with clean water, i mean, without detergent...

Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.
