Dish washer


My dishwasher does not dry my dishes completely. It did in the past but I have made sure to keep drying aid in the dispenser. In the past it would release steam through the vent, now it does not. I think that's the problem but I do not know how to correct that. Your help is greatly appreciated.

the heating element may be shot. I would get an appliance person to look at it.

Dish washer


Not to be insulting here but is there an air dry button on it somewhere? My kids found mine before I did....

Dish washer


Since this is a new problem I'd suggest that the unit is not draining properly and water is still at the bottom when the cycle is finished. Could be a couple of things. First, check to see if the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is not full of food particles. If that's clean, it could be the pump is wearing out and not doing it's job.

2 possible problems. If your unit has a fan assist dry cycle the fan may be bad, if it does not have fan assist then the vent in the door may be plugged

If it has a fan should it be marked on the panel? In the past the steam did come out quite noticeably. On the other hand, I considered the door filter. Mine is black and seems to be deteriorating. I attempted to removi think e it by prying it out with know success. It might be a combination of the both. Great advice guys and girls!

I will start with the uses manual to see if it has a fan. Then I will pursue how to remove the filter.
