Dishwasher won't dry.


run it and open it after the drying cycle right away. what you should be looking for is heat. you will see a metal rod going around the bottom of the dishwasher in a square shape either that has stopped working or the circuit shorted out some where, people don't usually know this but dishwashers use only cold water they use that element to heat the water.
good luck

Won't Stop


If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is
cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher.
Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature
of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than
120 degrees Fahrenheit.
