I just bought a dishwasher and when it is done washing, it still runs. What can I do?

Not sure what you mean by it still running, is it rinsing? Doing a sani-rinse cycle? If you are sure your cycles are done, and it is still running, I would call the brand's helpline to see if there is a problem. Then a repairman might be needed, hopefully, it is still under warranty.
Was the dishwasher bought used? If it is new, it's under warranty so just call the store where you bought it.
It depends on what you mean by running... It may be going through the drying/heat cycle after it finishes washing.
Turn off the automatic drying and after the next load, and the dish washer has really stopped, open the door ajar. That will add a wee bit of humidity to your kitchen, but I live in a hot desert, so that is a plus.
