My hoover dishwasher doesn't complete the drying cycle, it

Customer Question

My hoover dishwasher doesn't complete the drying cycle, it seems to have been fine until a recent power cut. When it has finished all the lights are on but the last drying one. The dishes are wet and have bits on them. I have refilled the salt, cleaned the arms and filters and filled the rinse aid

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The power interruption may have caused a disturbance in the electronics. Turn the power off at the mains for at least 4 hours. Does the behavior change when plugged back in?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Have done as you suggested above and put the machine on a full cycle. It is now beeping with the first three lights flashing. The lights then went solid red and the drying light is not on. Thank you

I suspect the problem lies within the heating circuit. How many flashes between pauses when the lights flashed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That is what I am thinking as we have a dishwasher cleaner in there and it isn't coming out. I'm not sure how many flashes between pauses as it was earlier. Is it generally expensive to fix the heating circuit? I suspected that as it wasn't feeling warm as it does normally on the door

Yes, the electronic control board is likely at fault, that is the most common to fail.
