How to use a heated dry cycle

Using a heated dry cycle in your dishwasher

Set the cycle and the options per instructions in the Use and Care Guide. 

Use the Heated Dry or ProDry options for best drying results.

When selecting a "quick" wash or "1 Hour" wash cycle you need to make sure the Heated Dry option is selected to provide a dry program.  If the Heated dry is not selected, your "quick" cycle will not provide a dry program and your dishes will remain damp.

Simply selecting the Heated Dry option will increase the overall completion time of the cycle.

If you choose not to select the Heated dry option with the "quick" cycle, you may want to open your dishwasher door slightly after the cycle ends, otherwise moisture may re-condense back onto your dishes and walls of dishwasher.
