Hi,
\015\012
\015\012As you told me that your dishwasher is not cycling properly, and you sense it is the timer, but before you come to a conclusion and get the timer replaced I would want you to look out for the water heating cycle as well.
\015\012
\015\012Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next depends, as follows:
\015\012On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.
\015\012On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.
\015\012
\015\012Also as you are sensing the timer, they don’t often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Our dishwasher started smelling like something is burning, I turned it off straight away, no visible smoke or anything but it hasn't been cleaning very well for a while now. Are these the death throes? Or is it worth calling someone out to fix it?


Make sure there isn't any plastic on the heating element. Also check to see if there is any evidence of previously melted plastic. If it smells like plastic burning & you aren't using any heated options, cut the power & call for service. ... Whirlpool 24 in. GU3200XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

My husband and I smelled something burning, there was an electrical fire in my Maytag dishwasher. It was running at the time and thank goodness we were home!!!! Repairman said it would be $421 to fix. Machine is under extended warantee. Maytag refuses to fix it!! Not worth it for them!!! Don't deal with Maytag hopefully US Consumer Product Safety Commission is putting on the recall list!

My dishwasher displays 9e on the front panel. Its error code for low water level. I already reset the breaker, and that did not do it. what else could I do to fix it before calling someone for repair? I am handy with fixing things.

Our dishwasher won't start (model number 665.16049401). We had a similar problem last summer and a repairman came and fixed it. The problem was that the water level had gotten too low and so the machine locked itself off. This made sense as, at the time, I remembered filling the pool, running laundry and someone taking a shower all at the same time that I turned the dishwasher on. I am guessing this is the same thing that has happened now. The repairman put in a code and the machine worked. Can

The door has always made a horrible noise that I could not get to go away (I shot some WD40 into all available places). I learned to live with the noise. NOW, the spring on the door has obviously broken. I am afraid someone will open the dishwasher and hurt a small child with the falling door! I see where you addressed the broken spring problem. Do you think I could fix the horrible noise at the same time? Do you think this is something my husband could fix?

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks

About 7 or 8 minutes after setting my dishwasher to run a "Normal" cycle, I noticed that it didn't sound right. The Sensing light and the Add a Dish light were both on. I hit cancel and opened the door to find the inside totally dry and just barely warm. It had a slight smell - probably from the motor trying to run unsucessfully. Is there something I can do to remedy this issue without calling a repairman?

This dishwasher (MAYTAG DWU6402AAE) is 12 years old, and recently started having a problem with the water. I'm not convinced it's spraying or even rinsing. The soap doesn't drain from the container.

The electronic panel on the top of the door doesnt light up anymore and is unresponsive, when the power is turned on, the machine makes a sound like its running or draining or something, but nothing is happening. This all started after a potential electrical disruption following a power outage. Perhaps there is a fuse or some relatively easy way to fix this? or am I screwed and should just call a repair man.
