Should my dishes be dry after a dishwasher cycle?
Dishes that have gone through a wash cycle with an additional dry selection should be dry when they come out of the dishwasher. Some settings, like Air Dry or Fan Dry, don’t use heat and may not dry your dishes as thoroughly.
If you’ve selected a Heated Dry or Extended Dry Cycle and your dishes are still coming out wet, you may need to take a closer look at your dishwasher and the products you use. Consider how you place your dishes on each rack, as improper placement can cause water to puddle.
Some plastic items pose a drying challenge due to their lower thermal conductivity. Using a rinse aid during the wash cycle can help dry plastic items.
