SOURCE: sticking programer dial

Hello zxnigel,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, The program timer on my dishwasher is sticking.
And you have to move the dial by hand as it is taking 3 hours to do the wash cycle
I think the timer needs to be replaced!

What brand an model is your machine?
And how old is your dishwasher?

Let me know this information, please.


Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old Appliance

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive applaince
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: Dishwasher runs several hours

OK, that several hour wash cycle seems to be very abnormal and, the only way this can happen is if the timer control mechanism is damaged. this is referred to as a Overrun error. simply replacing the timer will fix this issue.

Timer wheel seems to slip. Won't hold time


You posted under Intermatic T104 timer.
If you have different timer, information below may not fit your timer.
Add a comment with correct timer brand and model number.

1) Click manual override on-off to see if Load turns ON, and that override snaps crisp and clean and is not sluggish or hard to move.
If override is not functioning well, then timer is bad. Buy new timer.
2) If dial is rotating, note current time, and watch if dial is keeping correct time over full day.
If dial is running slow, then buy T100 series 240Volt clock motor for T104 timer.
3) If dial is keeping good time, then tripper might be worn and need replacement

Link below shows Intermatic T100 series parts:

Cycle Sticks unless I manually move it along


Ya, the mechanical timer/dial is the problem. The heating element just got stuck on as the timer stalled in that dry cycle.
