Re: whirlpool dishwasher - how do i remove timer ??
When I looked up a Whirlpool 2000 dishwasher, it shows an electronic timer. For a mechanical timer, see last paragraph.
First, turn off the breaker for the dishwasher. Then you'll need to remove the Phillips screws around the inside of the door. The inner door panel lifts up, leaving the electronics in place. Disconnect the vent motor and the dispenser motor wires. Place something heavy on the outer panel to keep it down and prop up the inner panel. Remove the plastic cover over the timer - it should pop off. Remove the wires to the circuit board. The electronics are held on with one or two screws.
Mechanical timer: Turn the timer **** backwards. It should come off along with the pointer. This should reveal a 1/4 in ***** holding the timer in place.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya This is a fairly common issue with these dishwashers the problem usualy stems from the timer itself the timer tells the machine to switch to the next cycle after a given amount of time and when it quits working then the timer needs to be replaced So what you will want to do is first try a different load cycle or even try them all to see if it changes if so then this is a true sign of the timer being bad ok so if it does work in lets say a light cycle but not in the normal cycle this means that the normal cycle part of the timer is bad ok? Please try these first and post back to to what you have discovered andi can continue to help you form there ok? Best regards Mike
I know this may sound like the obvious but have you checked the electrical circuit breaker to see if it is tripped? If you have and the breaker is not tripped the next most likely problem is the timer. A new timer along with a good tutorial on replacement can be found at http://www.repairclinic.com . Just enter your model and any other information asked for at the home page search engine, find your parts and order. Replacement videos are available on the site.
Most likely problem is the timer. The timer tells the machine what to do and when. Yours is sticking at the 42min mark.
I do not see the model number so I'll take an assumption.
Digital timers are integral to the control panel and can be replaced as part of the panel.
Rotary dial timers are easily removed and replaced.
Switch the breaker off. Do not touch the control panel without first having done so.
To remove the control panel there are screws around the outside of the door frame and on some units from inside the machine on the door frame. Remove them and the control panel will be exposed.
If you have a rotary dial timer remove the control knob (pulls off) and the screws retaining the timer inside the control panel. You can sometimes "fiddle" with this style timer and get it going again. It is usually just dirt struck in the mechanism stopping it turning. But it is not expensive and I'd just replace it.
Digital is another system. If you can remove the timer section as a unit then you can replace it. Fist I would get the model number and go to your local parts dealer. Ask it you can get just the timer. If so replace it. There are no serviceable parts in an digital timer.
I hope this helps you. Please rate it is it helps clarify for you.
