What happens if dishes are kept in my dishwasher after a cycle?

           Leaving washed dishes in the washer for a long time can make the dish washer and dishes cool down.

           This means humid air in the unit can condense on the surface of dishes.

           It is recommended to take out dishes within a hour after washing is complete.

           Leaving the dish washer door open after a cycle can help to reduce water on dishes.



         Humid air in the dishwasher will be released for an hour after a cycle.
