    Heat dry used to work. Now it has stopped. The dishwasher is only a couple of months old.

If the dishes are made of plastic they will be wet , they don't retain heat when in the drying cycle!

    ok I see you have rinse aid in, so run a check on your heater element .Remove the bottom panel to get access and screws that hold the frame to cabinet,you are going to have to pull the dishwasher out so you can check for voltage at your heater.If you are not skilled at this ,DONT TRY !! The experience I have is to give the best advice and not lead you into a disaster.Please know that it can be one of the most frustrating appliances you can work withbecause of the tight quarters.If you need further assistance , I'm here to walk you through this the best way possible.

Dishes are soaking wet at end of cycle. Is this normal?


No, it's not normal for them to be soaking wet at the end of the cycle, but there are things that can affect this. First, make sure you have Heated Dry selected. Next, make sure you are using rinse-aid (Jet Dry), because the new dishwashers don't use as much heat as the older dishwashers, and Jet Dry will greatly aid in the drying. Be aware that plastics won't get dry in any dishwasher. Other things you can do is turn on the extra heat options in the wash cycle, and turn on the Sani-Rinse option (if you DW has such options). Otherwise, you may have a heater or controller problem.

Check and make sure the Air Dry button is not engaged. Check the clean out at the bottom. When you push the top rack in insure it is hitting the opening in the back. Finally purchase some Lemi Shine Machine cleaner for the smell, it's likely you have a some stuff lurking in the screens causing the smell, this made my Icon dishwasher work like new.

Frigidaire diswasher not drying dishes properly


Make sure you have the heated dry setting selected, use rinse aid at all times, and make sure the unit is getting hot. If it is not, or there is no steam generated when you open the unit after cycle - have a professional diagnose the heating element.

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 :)

Frigidaire dishwasher will not dry the dishes. Even on heated dry they come out soaking wet0 hot, but wet.


Sorry, but I must start at the beginning. Is the "heat dry" switch on. If so is the unit a 220 volt or a 110 volt? You can tell by the plug end, if it plugs into a regular outlet type than it'a a 110 volt . If it has a special plug outlet (large black or large gray) then it'a 220 volt.If it is indeed a 220 volt go to the main house electrical box and try to locate the dishwasher breakers. swithch it, or them off and on. Then try your unit again. If it's a 110 volt then you've got internal control malfunctions of some sort. I'm not a Frigidaire certified techy, But I'm sure if you hop on the phone to the service dept. someone will hand you a solution in seconds after you descibe "exactly" what is going wrong.Thank You ,very much, Dana

My dishwasher does not always dry the dishes completely - even though I use the same cascade with each use.


The most important thing to getting the best drying from this energy efficient, water conserving dishwasher is keeping the rinse aid dispenser filled. In my part of the US, I only see a rinse aid called Jet Dry.

The Cascade is the detergent powder and will not help the dishes to get dry.

Note: Even with the rinse aid full, some plastics will still be wet.
