Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01ILBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Cycle ends and dishes are not dry

There seems to be quite a lot of left over water on the dishes, door, and just not very well dried. I think this is much different than just a few months ago. The Energy Save Dry button is not pushed as far as i can tell. Any ideas on what could be the problem.

Also i see mention of a filter change - is this something a consumer can take care of and how? Or is it better left to a professional?

Thanks.

Drying dishes in a closed, hot chamber always seemed stupid to me.
We have made it a practice to open the machine, just crack at the top (our latch can be opened, door then tilted slightly, then latch closed again) to allow some of the moisture to escape.
OK, maybe your house isn't as dry as ours, but the additional humidity hasn't been a problem.

The filter serves to trap particles during the wash cycle, it shouldn't affect drying performance at all.

Your user guide will probably tell you if the filter is owner-accessible or not.
I checked but did not find a downloadable manual for your machine with a cursory look.

Is this normal for Miele dishwasher? - some water left below filter and not everything dry after cycle


Plastic items do not get dry because they do not get as hot as glassware. A lot of moisture inside is do to the evaporation of water on the dishes during the dry cycle. Some water remains in the dishwasher because it is impossible to pump all of it out. There is nothing wrong with your dishwasher.

Dishwasher not completely drying


The dishwasher does not dry the dishes, it is the residual heat remaining from the washing water that dries the dishes.
Once the washing cycle is over, opening the door and pulling the top drawer out slightly to keep the door ajar will create a small opening which allows the steam to escape and the dishes then dry a lot quicker.

Kenmore dishwasher leaving a lot of water on door, bottom, wall and dishes! it STINKS!


The pump could be leaking. The drain could be plugged - hence the smell. Taking a look underneath could reveal what needs to be fixed. I don't have an answer for why dishes are still wet even after a hot wash and heated dry but perhaps it is related to the other problem

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.

Does not seem like the dishwasher is drying like it used to. After it has gone through its entire cycle the is steam condensation on all the dishes and the inner door. Previously, at the end of cycle...


Have you run out of Rinse Aid ?
This has a large effect on drying as well as how clean the dishes come out. Rinse aid [breaks up] the water dispersion, so at the end of the final rinse, the water just falls off the dishes, takes the sediment with it. So with the heat of the final rinse, & less water left on the dishes, they dry better.

Dishlex dx 403 does not dry dishes - fan dry on red led


Ther have been a lot of complaints about the drying performance of these machines. One solution suggested by Electrolux is to use the "anti bacterial" wash mode, as this is a higher temperature wash, therefore dishes dry better. If you are using Eco wash or Quick wash, drying performance is not very good- Electrolux recommend leaving door ajar at end of cycle to improve drying. Also, ensure your Rinse Aid compartment is topped up, as Rinse Aid greatly improves drying performance.
-Please note: these dishwashers will not dry plastics and other items that do not hold the heat very well!!
-Also, you should be able to hear the drying fan running at the end of cycle- if not, then you may have faulty fan (uncommon), or control board (more common).
Good luck!!

LG Dishwasher redepositing debris back onto dishes


Have had a problem with our LG 5811 Dishwasher not operating.
I have found the Vent Hole Cover located inside the Door was not installed correctly. I used plumber putty between the plastic fitting and the inside face of the Door and turned the Cover fully to lock in place (vent hole is toward Door bottom). Water was leaking previously from this opening over the wires in the door.

Another problem was the lower Door Seal (under the Door) it was not installed correctly either. It was actually too long and would not seal against the bottom of the inclosure. Water was coming out and spraying the wires in the door. I had to remove the metal stiffener over the front of the Dishwasher to get to the Door Seal. I removed one end and reinstalled the seal. The Seal laid flat but was approximately 3/16" to long. I cut off the end with a sharp knife - seems to be the correct length now.

Does Not Dry Dishes


Withe the model and serial number it appears that this dishwasher is less than 2 years old.
Your symptoms point to a failed heating element. That is kind of surprising because this dishwasher ~should~ report an error code if the thermistor does not detect the raising temperature from the heating element.
The LG LDS and LDF models do NOT turn on the heating element in the drying cycle. It turns it on during the final rinse and the dishes dry as the built in fan runs.
So, I suspect the drying fan and related gear is inside the door panel. Do a load of dishes and listen for the final rinse to drain. Then, listen really closely near the top of the door for the quiet sound of a fan _and_ place your hand underneath the left hand side of the closed door for warm air blowing straight down.
If you do not hear./feel what I discribed , the drying system has failed. OH, and if you have any water leaking from the door (right where the warm air is supposed to come out, contact LG service folks and firmly request that they replace the drying parts with a retrofit kit.
Please review this and tell me what works and what questions you still have.
Good Luck and please keep me posted! OK?

The dishwasher is not dring the dishes


How old is this unit? Are you removing the dishes at the end of the cycle or leaving them? Are you filling the rinse aid dispenser? The new dishwasher will not dry properly without rinse aid. Dishes have to be removed at the end of the cycle because a dishwasher is a moist environment moisture will reform on the dishes if left with door closed. A dishwasher does not have a fan to move the moist.
