I've got a relatively new Whirlpool dishwasher (model WDT730PAHZ) where the dishes are remaining wet even though they're hot. So, the heating element appears to be ok so I'm wondering about the fan. I can hear what I think to be the fan motor running during the drying cycle but I don't feel any airflow from what I believe is the fan exhaust vent on the door.
Should I be feeling anything?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

I believe that the vent shown in your photo is to allow some air circulation to cool the electronics inside the door panel. Based on what I’ve seen on a couple of websites on how to replace the fan, the steam exits at the bottom left of the door.

Ah, so maybe that's the inlet rather than the outlet. Thanks.
