Water won't pass through the timer. How do i unblock it?

I have this timer. It's about 3 yrs old. Batteries are new and the programming works fine. The Timer itself worked fine the first time i used it this season, but now the water will not pass through the timer. I tried to flush it out, but it wouldn't. I don't see a way to take it apart for cleaning. What do I do now?

SOURCE: Not enough water

Be aware that you should remove dishwasher's power cable before touching wires or making resistance measuring !!! Check that the inlet valve get power. In case it does and no water entering the tub, check with multi-meter for solenoid's resistance (disconnect first the wires to it),if no measurement result, you should replace the valve. In case you have a measurement result, remove the solenoid from the valve and check that it's clean from any dirt. In case there is no power to the inlet valve - check that the float switch works. This is usually a small switch attached to a float. The float (usually a cylindrical) located inside the dishwasher at the bottom. As the water level rises, the float rises too. When it reaches the certain height, the float activates its switch, which cuts the electricity to the water inlet valve. If the switch is defective (stuck in the disconnected position)it will prevent power from the inlet valve. The switch is an On/Off switch and you can check it easily by a multi-metr. Good luck !!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Gilmour 9400 water timer won't turn on

Well, I have the same problem. In fact, I just took mine apart (look for 4 screws on the back gray plastic) and found that the gears are stripped. About 3 of the teeth are broke off. I've been looking for parts on the Internet, but no luck yet. I'm afraid the only solution is to purchase a new timer.

I can not get my raindrip R673CT to program in the days I want it to go off. Lost my instructions. It puts in what days it wants and won't let me change them. Even removed the battery and let it sit...


Call raindrip 888-825-4716

I can post manual R673CT timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Raindrip-R673CT.pdf
Manual does not have troubleshoot steps
Try 2 new AAA batteries, and clean battery terminals.
The fact that you get display suggests that batteries are not the problem.

Manual says timer will no longer turn on with low battery, so timer is reset by removing battery.
Generally it is bad news when basic timer will not function after reset.

I have a General Electric timer on my water heater. For some reason it has stopped working. How do I override the timer. It is less than a month old?


1) GE timers don't have override switch, but if you raise all the timer segments, the circuit to water heater will be completed.

2) Open link below to identify timer and see wiring diagram, and wiring instructions.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15207-timer.html

3) Override timer using the wires:
Take a photo of wiring so you can re-wire correctly on new timer.
There is 1 black and 1 white Line wire coming from the breaker.
And 1 black and 1 white Load wire going to water heater.

Connect black Line and Load wires together on same terminal.
Connect white Line and Load wires together on same terminal.
This will complete circuit to water heater and by-pass the timer.

4) Buy new timer at Home Depot.
Reconnect wires on new timer.
Return defective timer in new box.
Keep new timer clean, and swap out whenever needed and give yourself extended warranty.

5) This is the first report of GE timer going bad that I've seen on Fixya.

Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Dishwasher was leaking; now gets "stuck" 3 minutes after starting


You're describing a number of issues related to old age and maintenance. First, you've likely got a mechanical timer that is getting stuck. If the price of replacement is outside your budget for an old warhorse....

Second, in come cases, the timer takes care of water level...in most, however, there is a float or aeneroid level sensor. If it is a float...it may be clogged/jammed with detergent or debris. Located in the wash tub near the front. Clean it up. If it is an aeneroid, it has a tube going from the tub to the lower part which hooks into a 3 inch or so flat sided round item with two wires coming out. With the power off, test it by blowing and sucking on the tube. Blowing into it should open the switched leads ...sucking should hold a 'vacuum'. The pressure of water opens and closes this switch to determine water level.
