Dishwasher Not Drying? 8 Quick Fixes

There's no doubt about it: dishwashers save us a ton of time. We no longer have to spend up to an hour or more processing the day's dishes with a sink full of soapy water and a bunch of towels on hand. Washing your dishes in a dishwasher uses less water than hand washing and is also a lot more sanitary: today's dishwashers heat the water to 140°F or higher to blast away germs.

Dishwasher Problems - Tips for a Dishwasher Running Too Long

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Nov 26, 2018 9:00 AM 

One of the most common complaints we hear about dishwashers, besides that the dishwasher is not drying (which we've also written about), is that the dishwasher runs too long. This can be frustrating if you remember the way your old dishwasher used to churn through dishes! Thankfully, some dishwasher problems are easy to fix, depending on the cause.

In general, newer dishwashers approach washing dishes with a focus on stamina and energy conservation rather than speed. These models use less water and electricity, and are also much quieter, but the result is often longer cycle times than older dishwashers had. In this article, we'll explore some of the simple reasons why your dishwasher is running too long. (If it's time for you to buy a new model, check out our dishwasher buying guide!)
