Dishwasher not drying

About a couple of weeks ago, unloaded dishwasher, only to find everything wet. I since noticed that it sometimes seems to be on wash cycle for a long time - about 2.5 hours after I switched it on. (Unfortunately I've never sat and watched it all the way through, as I do have a life!) Occasionally it dries fine, and rest of time - I'm not sure whether it just sticks on wash for a very long time, or goes through whole cycle and then starts washing again. Any ideas ??

I've recently had the same problem. My theory (to be confirmed) is that the heating element is not working properly (in my case not at all). This may be the element itself or the control for the element. This, I think, may account for the machine running for so long - it is waiting for the water to reach operating temp before timing the wash cycle. This also explains why the dishes do not dry. I aim to investigate this theory over the weekend !!

I have had the dishwasher for about two weeks but every time I unload it the inside stays wet and never dries up. I have left it overnight before unloading nothing changed remained wet.

If you mean water remains in the bottom of the machine, look to see that the waste water pipe has a fall in it all the way to the discharge point, otherwise water can run back into the machine after it finishes pumping out.

Leaks when being unloaded

I may not have the full solution here, but to avoid (expensive) sub-floor damage, I recommend you do the following.  Assuming that the water is not coming from some dripping between the opened door at the hinge....
-Remove the kick plate that is in the bottom, front of the dishwasher.
Use a flashlight to look for wet flooring.  Run the dishwasher with the kick plate removed, watching for leaks/dripping.  It is possible for a leak to seep under the floor.  If leaking is found, do not ignore it.  Pull the dishwasher, fix the leak or replace the dishwasher.  Remove the first layer of sub-floor under the dishwasher, looking for deeper damage.
You should probably do the same with the carpeted area.  Pull the carpet back and decide if the sub-floor needs to be replaced.  A flooring expert should probably inspect.
Sorry to be such an alarmist, but I have been around floor damage that was unnoticed and ignored.

Dishwasher will not fill. Water lines have been checked and filters are clean

Flow detection shot?
Expensive one I had couple of months ago on a Bauknecht. 300 dollars. New machine at 250. Scrapped it.
Flow detector was coupled at automatic waterstop.
Beware if you have a old machine drying with hot air, most all new models use condensation leaving your dishes etc a bit bit wet :(
