Is it okay to put hot, dry dishes away directly from the dishwasher, or should they be cool before I take them out?

For flat plates and platters, it would be fine to put them away when still hot.

With bowls, it would be best to wait until they are cool. The reason for this is because they partially nest inside each other when stacked. When they are hot, they expand slightly. As they cool, they contract slightly. It is possible for them to become trapped together. The same thing applies if you stack glasses.
