Dishwasher not drying?

As long as your dishwasher is washing that's all that matters, right? Not exactly. A dishwasher that isn't also drying is skipping an important part of its job — and inconveniencing you in the process. It might not seem like a huge problem at first, but the more time you waste hand drying your dishes, the more you'll want to get your dishwasher back to 100% efficiency as soon as possible.

Luckily, our highly trained technicians at GE Appliances Factory Service know everything there is to know about fixing your dishwasher. We can give your GE dishwasher the attention it needs and have it washing and drying your dishes again in no time. Since we travel with a full inventory of Genuine GE Appliance Parts, we're usually able to diagnose and fix the problem all within a single service appointment.*

Don't let your dishwasher not drying your dishes properly bring your routine to a halt. Schedule a service call online and one of our skilled technicians would be happy to come by to get it back up and running.

Diagnose the problem

Rather than adjusting your schedule to factor in time for your dishes to air dry, opt for quick and dependable repairs. There are a few reasons your dishwasher might not be drying properly — most of which are an easy fix once you've pinpointed the part that needs replacing.

  • Heating element: Most dishwashers use hot water to kill bacteria and properly sanitize your dishes. Since the water going into the appliance isn't hot enough, the heating element (a small, tube-shaped device) will heat up the water so it reaches the optimal temperature for killing germs. The heating element is also integral to faster drying time because heat encourages moisture to evaporate. If the element isn't working properly, not only will your dishes not come out as clean as they could, they'll also come out still wet.
  • High limit thermostat: The high limit thermostat functions as a safety device that prevents the dishwasher from getting too hot. If it is malfunctioning, it might be shutting off the heat before your dishes are finished drying. Keeping the thermostat in working order is important, not only for appliance efficiency, but also safety reasons.
  • Rinse aid dispenser: Rinse aid is just as important as detergent because it helps your dishes shed water and therefore dry quicker. Make sure your rinse aid dispenser is full and the cap is fitted and functioning properly.

Dry dishes every time

Even if you're doing regular dishwasher maintenance to keep your appliance in good condition, there are bound to be occasional issues — like your dishwasher not drying your dishes properly. Sometimes all it needs is a little tweak or a simple part replacement. If you're looking for an expert opinion, call your local GE dishwasher experts and one of our skilled technicians would be happy to come by and take a look.
