My dishwasher's design is focused on noise, so there is no air vent which would allow noise to escape. When the dishes are done, I always open the dishwasher to fully dry the still-hot dishes.
But, here's the quandary: do I open the door all the way, or just leave it cracked? It seems like the best approach would be to open the door all the way, in order to let as much air as possible flow past the moist dishes, thus quickly taking the water away. However, my instinct suggests that it might be better to only crack the door, so that entering dry air fully reaches equilibrium with the heat and moisture before leaving, thus better using the residual heat of the dishes to dry them.
Is there an analytical approach that would clearly promote either a cracked or a wide-open door?
