Dishes Not Drying

Possible Solutions

Was rinse aid used?

Today's dishwashers are designed to be more energy efficient and use less water and less energy.  Rinse Aid can help you achieve the best drying performance. When using rinse aid, water "sheets" off the dishes and dishwasher interior.  The Heat Dry and ProDry™ options can perform better with rinse aid. Rinse aid can improve drying and reduce water spots and filming.
