Help.  I think every appliance in my new home has problems.........................

The Asko model 1385 dishwasher looks and sounds great but, the dishes don't dry. 

Yeah I can leave the door open and let them dry but, I have a 2 year old who likes to take out the knives so I have hand dried the last 2 loads.

Any ideas?

I am using liquid cascade although I read that Asko suggests powder.  I also don't like using rinses so could this help? 

Thanks again.

Make sure you are not running it on an economy or fast cycle, as this can cancel out the drying phase. Normal or heavy cycles are better as the wash temp is increased also. If you have a user manual, flick through to wash options for more info or phone the manufacturer.;)

Hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure this model has a drying vent that is opened by a solenoid at the start of the drying cycle to let the steam out.If the solenoid fails there is no where for the steam to go but condense back onto the dishes. The vent is in the door so you need to pull the front cover off to test the coil.

Remember the simple things.

two tips...one..if you can shake the top rack after it's over when things are still hot.  I seem to have problems with water sticking ontop of my cups.  2ndly, if these guys advice doesn't work, you could always just crack the door if your door allows it.  Hit the latch and let it crack.  if it locks in place with a lever, just undo the lever and let it open slightly.  Just enough that the 2 year old wont get his hands in there.

Running in normal cycle with drying. 

The dishes are very wet and I have a guy coming tomorrow to fix my attic fan (I'm claustrophobic) I'll have him check out the solenoid and see if that is the problem.  Makes a lot of sense as it is very damp in there and I don't see any humidity when the cycle goes.  There is always water left behind which in the directions is claimed to be normal.  I did check to make sure there were no clogs.

I'll let you all know how it turn out.

The 2 year old will open the dishwasher if I leave it open at all, in fact I have to keep it in locked mode.  For some reason he always goes for the dishwasher and doesn't bother with drawers nor cabinets......  Got me, as he has a mind of his own.

Thanks again.

Didn't mean to say normal.  The water that is left behind in the drain is supposed to be normal.
