Having problems with your Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1100AWS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Wet dishes; steam does not escape

\015 My dish washer does not vent the steam. The dishes are very wet unless I open the door the last few minutes of drying and let the steam escape. Could a steam vent be covered from shipping? Where is the vent?\015

Answers :

Hi, Most dishwashers do not have steam vents! there are several reasons for poor drying in a d/washer! The first one is to see that you have rinse aid in the machine as this aids drying! Next if you have rinse aid then is it being put into the machine when it needs it? Also you must bear in mind that the dishwasher need to heat on the last rinse to create the heat to dry the items which use the steam to dry them. Check the rinse aid first and see how you get on....

Constant Failure Bought the unit along with other LG products to furnish new home. Problem 1: After first few loads, noticed that the dishes were always wet, the repairman came and said he would try replacing some kind of sensor and that we should run it on the "Sanitary" cycle.
