Hi Because the timer controls many operations, a faulty timer can cause many problems. The timer is a complex component, so you shouldn't attempt a do-it-yourself repair. Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the timer, remove the front control panel. The timer is directly behind the main timer control knob. Disconnect one of the timer's terminal wires and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. 

If possible, use the same procedure to test the selector and cycle switches. The wiring hookup, however, may be too complicated to figure out on either of these switches. If you aren't sure you can deal with these switches, call a professional service person. Replace a faulty timer -- or a faulty control switch -- with a new one made for the dishwasher.

The timer is connected to several wires that supply power to operate the various functions of the dishwasher. To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one. Connect the wires of the new timer one by one, removing the old wire and connecting the new, to make sure you connect the wires correctly. The wires may be friction-fit on the terminals. If they are, use long-nosed pliers to remove the wires. Don't pull up on the wires, or you may break the connection between the wires and the clips. 

After connecting the wires, set the new timer in position, secure it the way the old one was secured, and replace the control panel and knobs.

Does the hose need to be attached so it will start


Hose will supply water, without hose, the machine will only humm.
Open water supply valve s and see if the machine fills. Press correct button for start.

Washing machine not filling


yes your problem is up the line somewhere. you have to have water coming out of the fill line when the washing machine is unhooked.
you will have to locate the valve to turn on the water.

good luck

No water flowing into drum, water supply is fine, just humms


My Samsung washer was not filling with water after cleaning the debris filter. All I did to fix it was to dump a half gallon of water into the tumbler, then I ran the beginning of the rinse cycle and it worked. It seems like the pump needed to be primed.

Dishwasher does not fill


Hi,
Double check that your water supply line is not kinked.
This sounds like a bad fill valve. If you have hard water and most everyone does after a few years the valve will quit working properly and will fail in one of 2 ways a slow or no fill or it will not shut off completely.
I hope this helps if I can help with anything else please let me know.

Fills with water and then just humms, no spray/wash action


Hello-   The 'hum' is the motor trying to turn. If the dishwasher has been getting louder recently, then the motor bearing has failed.  The solution for this problem is to replace the motor.  Occasionally the sump gets clogged, but this rarely stops the motor.  The motor is about 125$, and is easy to replace if you can remove and re-install a dishwasher.                       Please acknowledge this posted solution. Thanks- Ed
