Left Knob Settings

Hi all. Just moved to a house with the Viking 040 or 141 (not sure which). There is no documentation and the letters on the knob settings (mainly the left one) are worn. Could anyone enlighten me as to what these settings are?

A photo or perhaps even manual? THANKS!

How do i get the bottom spray assembly off?

USUALLY, there is a knob that holds the spray arm on the shaft coming up from the pump. Hold the spray arm and turn the knob the opposite direction than what the arm rotates. there might be a blockage in the shaft which can be seen when the spray arm is removed. the other blockage might be in the inlet to the pump which is on the bottom of the pan where there is a removable screen below which you can see the food/ debris grinder and below that the impeller to the pump. clean out both if you can. Caution - dont leave any screws/ hard items in the impeller cavity.

Mine is old, probably a 1992 model - 8700 series. Problem is the cycle control knob is becoming increasingly difficult to turn. Almost can't turn it.

hi, If the knob can be removed, take some wd40 and spray a little in the shaft area. See if that helps. If not, you are looking at replacing the timer. Contact your local parts supply house for parts. Hope this helps.

Stopped running. Water left in bottom. Dishes do not appear to have rinsed completely. Will make no noise at all. It is a free standing unit that has been built in.


at the sink is usually there is a small areator deal that hisses when the dishwasher drains, pull the lid straight up and off of that and unscrew the inner white part, study that area and clear with debris. if thats not it check the float switch inside the tub for an obstruction, its towards the front and its round, it should move up and down and click, if either of those dont do it, take out the bottom rack and begin disassembling the grate, and the inner grate. get all the way down to the sump to check for obstructions
also if you have kids or toddlers and the dishwasher has a knob, you might want to ask them if they might have tried to turn the control knob backwards. if they did, they bent contacts in the timer and thats around 75.00.

good luck

I can't get it to work i can trun it on but thats it. i can get work

could be several things,
are the dishes wet at all?
is there a puddle of water in the bottom ?
do you have children?

If the dishes are wet , then its not draining, up on top of the sink theres an aerator , pull the chrome cap straight up and under that is a white knob, unscrew that counterclockwise and look for debris, reinstall

theres a round white float inside the machine below the bottom rack near the front that can get stuck in the up position and prevent draining, grasp the float to see if you can get it to move up and down slightly, look under float for dishes/debris

look under the sink for kinked hoses with a flashlight, make sure all faucet knobs are turned on under the sink.

lastly, toddlers and small children can crank the control knob in the wrong direction, bending contact points in the timer, if thats the case , youll need a new timer..

good luck
