    where can i buy a timer & approx. cost?

  • designs10252 Oct 21, 2008

    Explain "hard resetting"?

  • designs10252 Oct 21, 2008

    Is there any way to check these issues out?
    I turned the machine to start then left the house for 3 hrs. when my wife came home she heard the buzzing. No water ever came into the machine. If it was something electri wouldn;t it have overheated and tripped a breaker?

    Thanks, for all your help.

Hi,

The loud buzz may not be the timer but the motor failing to start. If yes, then it would probably be the starting capacitor. On some versions the capacitor is 21mfd / 330v , for your model pls confirm Part Number is MSC330V21. other possibilities include:

  • Circulation pump #42 PD140016
  • Seal set #1 PD100042
Most parts would be available at searspartsdirect.com

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Most (if not all) electronic/electrical components could be tested/checked. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a multimeter/tester and possibly a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

    To test a capacitor (important dissipate the stored energy safely before testing), set the multimeter to X1, touch the test prods to the capacitor terminals, the needle should momentarily deflect to the right and slowly go back to rest at the left.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Anyone know why


If the machine has a mechanical control, the timer is stuck in a certain position. Whatever cycle it is stuck on will continue to run until the timer is advanced to the next setting. If you have an electronic board controlling things then that board is defective and needs to be replaced.

U might try unplugging unit to see if that affects the electronics. If manual timer, unplug unit and move the cam yourself to the next position.

Water won't go out of the dishwasher


Begin at your sink drain that the dishwasher drain hose connects to. Disconnect the hose and check both directions for anything plugging the connection.
Make sure the drain hose has not become "kinked"
(After you have emptied the water from the dishwasher) remove the lower spray arm and the filter in the sump area. Look for obstructions and remove all debris. Rinse the filter thoroughly and reassemble.
If you dishwasher has a timer on the front of the dishwasher that you can manually turn, start a quick cycle with no DW soap and empty.
Allow the water to run in for several seconds and then manually (slowly, gently) turn the timer knob until the DW should begin draining the DW. Listen closely for the sound of the pump motor running.Is water properly draining out of the dishwasher into the drain?
After you have done these things, please post back here and we can take the next steps. OK?

Buzzing sound


a loud buzzing sound it is probably a faulty control/timer module.

If the appliance works the same, you can keep it like this, if it still under guaranty, call the number listed on the owner manual to get repair.

If you got the sound only recently, that means that the control is going to fail soon, in that case call a repairman and have the control assembly replaced.

You find diagrams and parts here,
just enter the model number.

Timer stuck on cycle will work if manually moved


The timer has a small motor that advances it through the cycles. It either works or it's DOA. unfortunately you probably have to replace the timer complete.
