Question about Dishwashers
Our dishwasher timer is not working through the cycles completely and won't drain the water. It keeps getting stuck in cycles and I have to open and close the dishwasher to make it start again. Is it the timer assembly and is it hard to replace?
Ok start the washer after it fills and starts washing open the door again and turn the dial to drain shut the door see if it drains if it does then open the door and turn it to heated dry shut the door and get you a small glass of warm water let it sit in heated dry for about 3 minutes open the door and pour the water on the heating element and let me know if it sizzles

Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't
complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the
heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the
dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in
one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault.
Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many
dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the
cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled
with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What
happens next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the
unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue
until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of
dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the
heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it
never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle
problem" is fixed too. Please accept the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
