Dishwasher not heating up.

SO, my dishwasher, Model #GDT580SSF7SS, ran a cycle the other day and when the cycle was done the the items in the dishwasher were "cool"to the touch. Usually when I open the dishwasher, I am hit with a blast of hot air. Any thoughts? Thanks!

You can select HEATED DRY. Did you have it set for heated dry ? Did the light come on ?
Air dry is with no additional heating. Basically economy mode.

Does that GE unit have a digital display?
It is possible the heating element went bad but it should show up as a fault.
