Timer knob not turning and its not heating up


If you are setting the knob to begin a cycle AND the drum turns when you start it AND the timer knob does not advance, the timer is likely defective.

Some dryers with truly automatic cycles (using moisture or temperature sensors) will not advance the timer if there is a no-heat condition due to a bad thermostat or heating element. This would show as the dryer tumbling a load forever and the clothes are cold and wet when checked.

If the dryer will not do anything at all AND the timer knob does not advance, check the power (circuit breaker/fuse), then the dryer door switch. When the door switch is defective or the door isn't fully closing, it stops everything, period. There is a thermal fuse on some machines that will also cause this problem.
Good luck from Detroit, MI.

How do I get my ge dishwasher to run? the lights


Hello there and welcome to fixya
If electrical power is available to the dishwasher but the appliance doesn't run, the problem is likely to be a defective door switch, timer, or selector switch. Make sure to turn off the power to the dishwasher before attempting any repairs
To solve a door switch problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch's strike slightly, using a screwdriver
then make sure the door closes securly, if this doesent work
please check the timer as follows
Dishwasher timer concerns can be classified into two general categories: the timer cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck or intermittent automatic timer advancement.

1. The timer dial cannot be advanced manually and appears to be stuck. Stuck timers are generally caused by objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening, or by a sticky substance between the timer dial and the control panel.
  • Objects that prevent the detergent cup from opening: If your timer will not advance, open the dishwasher door and check for items that may be blocking the detergent cup.

    Also, check the detergent cup:

    • It should be fully closed at the start of a cycle.

    • It should be fully open at the end of the cycle.
    • Almost fully open between main wash and final rinse.

    If it is in any other position, try to open or close the cup while at the same time rotating the timer. This should free it up. To prevent a reoccurrence, make sure nothing blocks operation of the detergent cup when the dishwasher door is closed and operating.


  • Sticky substances like orange juice that get between the timer knob and the front of the control panel on some models will bond the timer knob to the control panel. If you have this condition, it will be virtually impossible to rotate the timer knob while gently pressing the knob in toward the dishwasher. It will rotate normally if the knob is gently pulled away from the dishwasher while rotating the knob.

    This problem can be solved by gently pulling the knob away from the control panel and cleaning behind the knob with a damp cloth. Do not use excessive force because the knob is attached to the control panel on models affected by this problem. If this operation cannot be performed, service should be contacted to repair the problem.
2. Intermittent automatic timer advancement. This can be described as the timer can be advanced manually, but it does not advance automatically in spots for up to 30 minutes.
  • This is almost always a normal condition and always occurs on models with a "Delay Start" feature.

    Delay start timers increment or advance a couple of degrees once every minute or so during most of the cycle. However, during certain parts of the cycle they increment once every 30 minutes. This gives the dishwasher time to do the job of cleaning your dishes. The long increment times occur during "Delay Start", "Hot Start", "Normal Wash" and "Dry" cycles.

    The timer will not move at all during these delay periods. This is normal operation and service is not needed. If you notice delay times substantially longer than 30 minutes, replace the timer
  • Also ensue that you are getting adequate water pressure and the unit is getting water inside and that the water is at the right temperature 140 is the min. for most units
  • Please check the above and let me know what you have found so i can continue to help there is a lot of things to check but these that i have provided are the most common thing that need to be checked first ok?
  • Best regards Mike

I have a Kenmore washer model 110-20712991. the timer doesn't advance. Wherever I put it, it stays there and only does that functions, never advancing to the next position. Is there any test i can perform...


It does sound like a bad timer:

See the following: This is a Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has testing instructions as well as directions for removing each of the two types of timers.

If your timer is the one with a knob that un-screws, use a thin needle nosed pliers to hold the shaft going thru the timer while you un-screw the knob.

Kenmore model 110.24642300 will not cycle through wash cycles...will stay stuck in wash cycle until the knob is manually turned to rinse/spint/etc. Would this be a bad knob or timer or both? Thanks!


Start a cycle and remove the knob. If it still stays in agitation mode and won't advance to the spin, then you have a bad timer, or no power to the timer motor(very unlikely). If your washer goes through the cycles with the knob off then you have a bad timer knob. I have seen stripped knobs causing the timer to bind up and not advance. Good Luck Appliance Specialists

The Timer Knob on my Maytag Dryer does not move. The drying just goes on and on unless I notice and stop the dryer.


While the dryer is turning slowly advance the timer knob to the end of the cycle. The dryer should stop. It sounds as if the timer motor has died or is not being powered for some reason and is not advancing the timer.

Dishwasher get stuck and will not advance on its own. It does rinse and drain if I manually advance the control knob.


Without a model number I can't direct you to the exact replacment part you need. However, it would appear, based on what you've described, that the timer motor is faulty and should be replaced.

Since you can manually advance the timer/cycle knob and the dishwasher will function at each stage of the various cycles, it can only be the timer that is bad.

You can go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter in your model number and you'll be able to see an exploded line drawing of your unit and all the parts in it. You can then order the replacement part from them or use the info to find the part elsewhere, if you wish.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Washer won't spin


The first thing I would check is if your timer is advancing. Set it at th beginning of a wash cycle and let it go. See if the timer knob arrow advances. If it doesn't, your timer is bad.
