If it is a high efficiency dishwasher, similar to my Bosch, you have to make sure to add the rinsing agent, such as Jet Dry. These washers will never dry off the dishes without that rinse agent. In addition, I find that the best cycle is actually the shortest cycle. I get a much better results from the 50 minute cycle than I do from even the 2 1/2 hour cycle.

SOURCE: My Dishwasher does'nt dry my dishes.

How old is the dishwasher? Check the front control panel for a AIR DRY / HEAT DRY switch. Perhaps the switch is in the AIR DRY position. If so and you really want to HEAT DRY your dishes, set the switch for HEAT DRY. Otherwise: Second, it is not a bad thing to let your dishes AIR DRY. It saves money! Just open the Dish Washer door after the last rinse cycle has finished and let the dishes AIR DRY manually. In a hour or so they can usually be put away. Works for me :)

Sounds like a heater problem to me, does it go through the complete cycle on its own?

SOURCE: HOTPOINT DISHWASHER FDW60

Hi,

I have just had my dishwasher fixed by Hotpoint, as the heater was working and the dishwasher only stopped with the fast and delicate lights just before the drying process he replaced the main control board. This has solved the problem, I suspected the fault to be the thermistor as the heater seemed to be getting to hot but I had no idea where it was.

It turns out the thermistor is attached to the main control board and hangs down behind the front door that gives just a rough temperature level for the main control board.

As it's soldered directly onto the control board I would suggest replacing the whole control pcb for anyone with this fault unless you can find any spec details for the thermistor.

The rinse aid or the rinse aid dispensing cap could be the reason why your dishwasheris not fully drying your dishes. Without the rinse aid, the dishes will not shed water easily and will not dry properly. First, make sure the rinse aid chamber is not empty.

Frigidaire diswasher not drying dishes properly


Make sure you have the heated dry setting selected, use rinse aid at all times, and make sure the unit is getting hot. If it is not, or there is no steam generated when you open the unit after cycle - have a professional diagnose the heating element.

My dishes don't dry in our new Viking dishwasher.


It might be helpful if you provide the model number.

For proper drying of dishes you need to make sure the Rinse aid is set at the right level plus the drying fan is working.
Some dishwashers also use the hot air by running the heater. If the heater is not working then drying can be affected.

Also might help to read this post.

The dishwasher doesnot dry anything.


  • Check the rinse aid indicator beside the rinse aid dispenser cap. If the indicator window is clear, refill the dispenser. The dishwasher will retain moisture and the heat dry option will not perform properly without rinse aid. Turn the dispenser cap clockwise and lift it up to remove it. Pour rinse aid into the dispenser until the indicator appears full. Place the dispenser cap over the dispenser and turn it counterclockwise to tighten it.

  • Load the dishes properly so that all dishes can drain after the rinse cycle. Do not overload the dishwasher. Towel-dry plastic dishes because they will not dry completely during the dry cycle.

  • Select the heated dry option on the dishwasher. The air-dry and energy-saving dry options will not perform as well as the heated dry.

    Are you using a rinse aid like Jet Dry??  All dishwasher manufacturers now require that you use rinse aid for drying dishes at the end of the cycle.
