Tip & How-To about Dishwashers

What causes my timers to burn out on my washer, dryer and dishwashers

When setting your tmers on your washers, dryers and dishwasher, Do not turn the timer while the machine is in operation. When this happens the timer contacts are arcing and burning. on dishwashers and dryers, Open the door slightly to set the timer. never turn the timers while the machine is in operation. Timers are expensive to replace. If you need to replace a timer, you may consider the cost of a new machine with a warranty. Warranties do not cover timer abuse.

What is causing erratic operation?

This sounds like a bad timer. As you turn the timer knob, cams on the shaft causes contacts to open and close. It is not unusual for the contacts to fail to close / the cams may wear down and not activate the contacts. This happens on one or more settings while other settings continue to work.

kenmore stack washer and dryer

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.
