    Heater is working. I am using new Jet Dry -Jet Turbo Dry suggested by dealer. This is supposed to solve drying problem of plastics. I still have same problem.



    Maytag rep tells me that there is nothing they wil do. The condensation is being caused by gloss finish of plastic tank.Maytag tells me that after gloss wears off I will no longer have problem.



    I have had 4 service calls from Maytag repair companies. One called Maytag tech and he was told to wipe my tank with jet dry and allow to dry for 8 hours. I did this. It did nt work.



    I have whole house water softener. I have water temp set to 125 degrees. Maytag told me there is nothing wrong with my dishwasher and they won't do anything about it.Home depot sales rep told me they have never had this problem. They are attempting to make Maytag correct the issue.

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

RINSE AID! Buy a bottle of Jet Dry or similar rinse aid liquid. Fill the rinse aid dispenser completely. Run dishwasher as usual. Water will no longer cling to the tub or the dishes. Newer dishwashers require rinse aid to dry properly due to reduced energy consumption.

Is there a heated dry feature on the Dacor? When I open the door at the end of the cycle there is still a lot of moisture and water droplets in the unit.


Below is a website with information about your dishwasher. It says it has a condensation dryer which means it dries the dishes using the heater coil in the bottom of the unit. This is a very slow process which continues to dry even after the unit has run all of its cycles. Usually over night they should be dry but any puddling water left on the dishes such as an over turned mug or cup will still be left on the dishes. The drying is done in this way to prevent damage to delicate glassware or melting plastic items in the unit. There is no dishwasher available that can fully dry the dishes due to the possibility of damaging your dishes.

How do I get the Electrolux dishwasher to dry the dishes?


Hello, I've got a suggestion and at first it may sound like I'm pulling it out of my...left field. I'll tell you the what and then I'll explain why. Try this, take a rag or paper towel and soak it with "rinse aid" AKA, "jet dry" and apply it to the top of the tub and to a lesser degree the sides as well. I suggest this to all my customer's with new dishwasher's. Now the why...all dishwasher's require assistance to dry your dishes, some more than other's. Hence the need for an additive such as jet dry, it is simply a wetting agent which help's the water run off the dishes and as a result they dry better. So why put it on the tub ? Glad you asked. The reason is exactly the same, on older dishwasher's that have had many year's of use the tub has already built up some wetting agent on the tub just by normal and continued use, the new obviously has not. The only jet dry the new one has is the added amount in the dispenser. Over a short time of regular use the unit would start to dry better on it's own, this just speed's up the process. By adding the jet dry to the tub you create a seathing action allowing water to run off before & during the dry cycle as to not have water in the form of condensation dripping back onto the dishes when the cycle is complete, which leaves you with dry dishes as opposed to wet dishes. Make sense ? I hope so, it really work's. Hope you found this helpful. If so please rate the info you received frome jere at "fixya" today and good luck. Let me know if I can assist you further. I hope you didn't find this too difficult to read, I had to use my iphone, it's the only internet connection I have at the moment. Macmarkus :)

Not drying dishes, help!!


The LG LDFx810 dishwasher energy saving series uses a condensing system mounted in the door and does not turn on the heating element during the drying cycle. Rather it heats the final rinse water and then runs the condensing fan system to remove the moist air. Energy saving dishwashers will never dry as completely as the energy hogs of 10 years ago - especially the plastic items.

Also, confirm that the rinse aid is full. This will help with drying considerably.

Hi,
As I had the same problem, I worked on my machine and found out the heater unit was not working (it is a brand new machine ! - remark : as I moved overseas, LG did not cover it with their warranty).
But back to what I did : I ran the check program (instructions can be found in the Service Manual) and verified it was sending voltage to the heater on step 36. So I checked the heater unit (in the bottom of the machine) and found it was burned or open. So I ordered a new heater assembly ($40 on eBay), replaced it myself and am completely happy with the results.
Remarks : the heater is powerful enough to heat cold water to the temperatures required (I don't have hot water in the faucet); it seems that the heater also produces heat for the drying cycle (my dishes were completely wet at the end of the cycle before, now they get completely dry). My only disappointment, mentioned by some in the forum, is that the outlet during the drying cycle is in the bottom of the door, so steam condensates into droplets on the kitchen floor. But now I get clean dishes, and this machine is amazingly silent and efficient. Good luck to you !

The cupboard next to dishwasher becomes full of condensation during drying cycle


Is the machine properly lined up?

Could be a small leak at the top - won't leak water, but steam can escape maybe.
