If the dry cycle has a problem, check these:

Heating element
Drying fan
Thermostat
Heating element Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element.

Drying fan Many high-priced dishwashers have a small fan that blows air or heated air into the dishwasher to speed up the drying process. If the fan is defective, you need to replace it.

Thermostat Some dishwashers have a thermostat that monitors the drying temperature. If the thermostat is defective, the heating element may not cycle on or off properly. If that's the problem, you need to replace the thermostat

Why does my new dishwasher not dry dishes completely?undefined


Mieles do not have a drying element - this is a big energy saver. They save heat from washing and use that to dry the dishes. Sometimes they will not be quite bone dry at the end of the cycle, but most will be dry if you open the door for a little while to let air circulate.

If your vent (port on the front) is blocked then the machine will not be able to blow out the damp air, and you will have wet dishes as you describe. If you have leaking from that port, then check my answers on "the Miele problem" which I am pasting below.

= = = =
You have the Miele problem.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is an idiotic problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.

The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk.muck and slop.

Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!

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.

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.

The dishes are still wet after "drying" overnight?


Hi,

With the energy efficient dishwashers today it is very important to use rinse aid for proper drying. The rinse aid will help sheet the water off of the dishes prior to the dry cycle. If you do not use rinse aid you can expect poor dry performance.

Next to the detergent cup in the door is the rinse aid dispenser, be sure it is full. You only need to fill it about once a month. There is also a product called "Turbo Dry" that you can use in the rinse aid dispenser, it helps dry even plastics very well.

Next be sure you have selected heated dry on your options.

Sani Rinse will also help as it heats the water before the dry cycle.

Let me know if you have questions.

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.

My bosch dishwasher will not dry the dishes


this dw to save energy works this way- the final rinse will reach a temp of 161 F . the dishes have to absorb this heat. when the cycle is complete the dishes become a heater in themselves radiating the heat they absorbed during the final 161 F heat. If you have any tupperware or plastic dishes in the unit they will not absorb heat therefore not radiate the 161 f temp need to dry all the dishes. try to avoid plastic items and they must always have jet dry. this is the european way of conserving energy. on the old ge or whirlpool they had electric element in the bottom that would bake the dishes dry ....not these..but they do save alot of energy.. it helps right after a cycle to crack the door open release all the steam from the unit

Dishes not dry at end of cycle


check to see if your jet dry dispenser is empty and on some of them you can turn them up higher its important to use a rinse agent back when everyone was trying to cut down on energy use the only way to to it was to cut back on drying time so they came up with jet dry which creates a sheeting action and causes most of the water to run off before the drying cycle

Bosch dishwasher she45m


Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.
