Why Is My Dishwasher Not Drying?

Here are a few common reasons why your dishes may not be drying:

- You are not properly spacing them out which leads to poor air circulation

- If your model uses a vent to dry, it may not be functioning properly and will likely need to be repaired.

- The heating element that is responsible for heating and drying the dishes is broken

Do Dishwashers Dry Dishes?

Yes, dishwashers are supposed to dry your dishes enough for you to be able to put them away after a cycle.

How Does A Dishwasher Dry Dishes?

Depending on the technology that is built into each washer, they can dry your dishes by using different methods. Here are a few of the most common ways that dishwashers dry dishes:

- Use an electric coil that heats the air

- A fan blows and circulates hot air

- The water temperature increase at the end of a wash cycle

- Some models use a combination of these three methods

What Is Heated Dry On A Dishwasher?

Heated dry is when a dishwasher uses forced hot air to turn moisture into steam and then forces the steam out through a vent.

Why Doesn't Plastic Dry In The Dishwasher?

Plastic is a material that doesn’t retain heat, which is why water that remains on it doesn’t evaporate or dry off as easily. The GE Profile’s Dry Boost With Fan Assist feature helps ensure that even your plastic dishware is properly dried.
