For about 2 weeks my car has been hard to start now it wont start it acts like the starter is not engaging to turn motor over when you try to start it it makes a whinning spinning noise we took starter off...

sounds like the battery wire to the starter is possibly the culprit, it may have a bad spot in it not allowing enough voltage to the starter. also depending on the brand solenoid you purchased it is possible to get a bad one. i recommend borg warner electrical products. i hope this helps.

Turn ignition to start and all of a sudden car wont start or even attempt to start. Battery is good all starting cables are clean and tight. Then after I go through everything it just eventually starts...

Possibly the anti-theft system? Is the light blinking fast when it doesn't start? maybe the shifter interlock--does shifting to neutral make it work? Solenoid is possibility but not usually intermittent. Ignition is another possibility. Let us know as your troubleshoot and have more questions.

Water will not drain from dishwasher

the selinoid that activates the drain cycle is possibly burnt out. This selinoid is activated by the timer on the dishwasher. Before I changed out the timer I would change this selinoid. It is located right beside the motor. Take the model and serial numbers to a local appliance supply and they should be able to help you. The replacement of this selinoid is simple and self explainitory.., Good luck on your repairs hope this helped you some

get a new starter or starter selinoid, sounds like its hanging up possible stripped gear on starter of flywheel. If its a stick shift you can always put key in "run" position and have a couple friends push you in neutrel then when you gain speed put it in 3 gear and dump the clutch, if it starts you know the starter, selinoid, or flywheel is faulty

How to change starter selinoid

the starter selinoid is on the starter itself. normally a parts dealer will never seel you a starter selinoid individually but they will sell the starter with the selinoid. but you cant change the selinoid without changing the starter

No water coming into dishwasher

The hum is a selinoid. The water inlet valve is selinoided operated so I woudl sspeculate that either the valve is bad or the selinoid is. You can check the selinoind with an ohm meter. Since it hums I am guessng that the valve is bad. Likely they come together as one unit.
