Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

After i was my dishes they are still wet when finished


Answers :

Make certain that you have selected "heat" for drying (if available on your dishwasher). If no such selection is available, try using "Jet Dry" that should assist with the water being removed from the dishes, glasses, etc. Some customers elect to open the door to "air dry", but all dishwashers typically have a "heat element" located at the bottom of the tub that dries the dishes, etc.

I have an Asko D1322, about 2 years old. All is good with the washing but the dishes when it finishes are still very wet. The fan appears to be running and I'm getting a small flow of air out the vent in the bottom left of the door. Does the fan need any maintenance? I was wondering if this might improve air flow and get rid of the condensation quicker.

I bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup. I opened the d/w during a cycle and the dishes are wet top and bottom racks so I know it's getting water but the dishes are still filthy. Why is the soap not working?

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher, Model# PDW7880J03SS that doesnt dry the dishes. I pulled out the dishwasher and checked the heating element for continuity with my ohm meter and got a closed circuit reading. I tested the voltage going to the heating element and got a 124V reading. However the dishes are still soaking wet after the drying cycle. What am i missing, what else could be wrong with the machine that the dishes won't dry at all?
