Hi,

Firstly, if you haven't done so already, you need to disconnect your dryer from the electrical supply immediately as failure to do so will result in a large electricity bill and cause further damage to the dishwasher.

Unfortunately, this is most likely a failure in the control module - most likely the relay for the heating circuit has failed in the closed/on position. Unfortunately, the control module is one of the most expensive parts to replace so if the dishwasher is old, you might want to consider replacing it.

It's possible to get a replacement relay (dead cheap) and solder it onto the PCB, but I don't recommend this as a DIY fix.

Hope this helps.

How do you turn up the heat on the dish washer drying cycle?


There is no way to turn up the heat of the dishwasher during the drying cycle. As part of the current ecological, energy-saving, environmentalist-wacko movement, dishwasher makers have cut back on the heating used to dry dishes. But you can do these things to help with drying:
1. It is imperative that you use rinse-aid (Jet-Dry). This allows more water to flow off the dishes and what flows off does not need to evaporate.
2. If the dishwasher has the options, turn on high-temperature wash and sani-rinse. This gets the dishes hotter for better evaporation during the dry cycle.
It is possible that the heater may not be working at all, and that will cause poor washing performance and no drying. That problem can be caused by a bad heating element, or by a bad controller.

How do you eliminate the film on glassware after washed in dishwasher ?


Your heater may not be working properly. It is used to heat the water during the main wash as well as dry the dishes at the end. But don't under-estimate the importance of using the right detergent. Some discount detergents (especially liguids or gels) don't work very good. Stick with Cascade or Finish powders or those All-In-One tablets by Finish corporation (the ones with the little red "power ball"), or the new tablets put out by Cascade called "Platinum". In our repair business and experience, we find those work best.

The "clean light" is flashing


Indicates control hasn't sensed a rise in water temp during heat cycle. Make sure you hear the water being circulated during wash cycle. If so the heater, control board, thermostats or wiring are most likely bad. If heater, therms, and wiring check good its usually the control. When fixed press Heat dry- Normal-heat dry-Normal or High temp- air dry-high temp- air dry to reset control.

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.

Our Haier HDC1804TW counter-top dishwasher does not complete the washing cycle. It stops after 90 minutes which should be 115 minutes for heavy washing according to the manual. The washing light is...


Since mine does the very same thing, it's my guess that is the sterilising cycle as by this point it has already washed, done a short fill to remove any remaining detergent, and two rinses. I'm also assuming the second short fill is just to cover the heating element and/or to to generate an amount of steam having being heated by the element (I'm basing that assumption on the heat of the dishes at the end of end of the cycle and the heat of the water when it drains)

Samsung front load dryer will turn on but not spinning or drying. I was wiping it out and turning the drum I heard a snap sound.


I was cleaning mine and doing the same thing last night. Washed a load of clothes tonight and went to dry them and everything works on it except it won't spin or heat. Heard the same type of popping noise last night cleaning it out. Have you found any solutions? Mine is just over a year old. I did some reading and thing that the dryer belt came off its assembly possibly. Have you found a solution?

You dont really need it, when the washer gets done Open the door for a minute and let the steam out and shut the door dishes will then dry. the reason there still wet is because of the steam from the Hot water

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.

LG7810 will not dry dishes


THE DRY CYCLE HAS A PORT ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR WITH A BLOWER MOTOR. THE PORT SHOULD OPEN AND THE FAN MOTOR COME ON DURING THE DRY CYCLE TO EVACUATE THE STEAM FROM THE INTERIOR. THE PORT IS OPENED WITH A WAX MOTOR. IF IT FAILS, THE PORT WILL REMAIN CLOSED AND DRYING WILL NOT TAKE PLACE.
TO VERIFY OPERATION, WHEN THE DRY CYCLE STARTS,
WAIT ABOUT 2 MINUTES, THEN OPEN THE DOOR AND LOOK IN THE ROUND VENT ON THE INTERIOR OF THE DOOR. IT SHOULD BE OPENED. IT WILL SLOWLY CLOSE AS THE DOOR REMAINS OPEN. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THIS ACTION.

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...
