GE Dishwasher gdwf160vss
« on: February 04, 2013, 12:05:08 PM »

I've been looking for a tech sheet on this model and can't find one.  The dishwasher will run through a cycle and complete, but the cabinet is pretty wet inside after it's done.  The temperature inside is warm, but not hot.  Does anybody know how to run diagnostics on this unit?

Most modern dishwashers suck at drying the dishes. The manufacturers have cut way back on the output of the element in order to save energy.
You must use a rinse agent. It is easier to dry the dishes if there isn't any water on them. A lot of dishwashers have "IMPROVES DRYING" stamped on the dispenser cap.

Tech sheet is located underneath on right side behind electrical box. It will help to put into diagnostic mode.
