Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on you description of the timer not advancing I wonder, does it appear to heat the water ? I doubt it if my suspicion is correct.

The SHU 30** unit`s with a mechanical timer have very few if any, issues with the actual timer or element but they do with the thermostat within the door panel.

If it is not satisfied the water won`t heat, hence timer will not advance.

Here`s what you can try. If you have any hesitation or reluctance to service this yourself please call in an authorized B/S/H/ appliance technician.

** Turn off the breaker at the service panel before attempting any service suggested **

1) If you have a #20 torx screwdriver, remove the door panel by taking out the screws around the panel ( watch the edges they are very sharp )

2) Once the panel is removed you should see the thermostat over by the detergent dispenser clipped to the inner door...

example,

I need to move the dishwasher on to the next part - 0cb808a.jpg


Remove it and test it, you`ll need a ohm meter/multi-meter plus a lighter or match to heat it up( or carefully set it on a stove burner for a few seconds until you hear it "click" or watch the meter move if it has alligator clips to fasten to the thermostat connectors..don`t burn yourself or the wire leads ) to see if it open`s & closes.


Let me know how you make out and what you find.

Good luck.

This is most likely due to corrosion or wear on the contacts in the switch behind the dial. If you are ambitious ( there are numerous contacts) these can sometimes be cleaned to give a lot more life to the switch and save the price of replacement/service. Or you can buy a new switch, easy to install (wires).

Dishwasher took 3 hours to complete cycle


If you have set the unit to heated water or your hot water is not hot will delay the wash cycle. The heater in the dishwasher is very slow!
The following is from the user manual.
15
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Dishwasher is not operating properly
Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the "Cycle Selection
Charts."
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown or circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shut-off valve (if installed) turned on?
Dishwasher will not fill
Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.
Dishwasher seems to run too long
Is the water supplied to the dishwasher hot enough? The
dishwasher runs longer while heating water. Refer to the
"Dishwasher Efficiency Tips" section.
A delay automatically occurs in some wash and rinse cycles
until the water reaches the proper temperatur

Hope this helps?

My washer will not switch from one cycle to the next


I understand that your washer is not advancing and stuck on one cycle. If you provide a Model and serial number, it will be helpful.

Washer when set turns on and fills and agitates. But will not move to next cycle automatically. I can manually move the dial to rinse / spin and it works properly. But again won't move to final spin...


From the way you discribe it, sounds like you have a bad timer.If you decide to fix it yourself be sure to mark the wires before removing the timer.

Cycle dial doesn't advance automatically anymore. I saw some listed problems that sounded similar, but not exact. Washer will work in all cycles, but only when I watch and move the dial manually.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Its seems that the Timer is stuck, as everything else is working fine in the unit and the dial ust gets stuck and so won't complete the cycle so the problem is with the Timer motor going bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dishwasher stalls


If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle 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.

Timer 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.

Cycle Sticks unless I manually move it along


Ya, the mechanical timer/dial is the problem. The heating element just got stuck on as the timer stalled in that dry cycle.

If you can move the timer manually, then check the power to the timer motor. If you have power to the motor, replace the motor

I have a GE roll around dishwasher, Model GSC3200Z03BL. It worked one night, did not work the next. After hooking intake/discharge hose to faucet and turning to start, no water is pumped in. Only a...


First off.. the pump does not let water in.. it takes water from your sink faucette via the hose and allows it to enter the DW via an inlet electrically operated valve. If that valve is not commanded by the control system to open, then no water will enter the DW and a wash cycle will not start. Please find the informaton shown below that decribes some reasons why your DW may not be filling with water. You should go thru this series of checks to make sure you've set up the DW correctly aqnd it is not in mid cycle.If by chance you are setting it up correctly and are not in mid cycle then you may have a hardware problem with the system. I would be happy to assist you if it comes to that but I am hoping that the information below will get you started,...

Copied directly from the GE website for your refererence..

Dishwasher - No Water Fill

Often the cause of a dishwasher not filling at the start of its cycle is not electrical or mechanical. Often times you may be starting your dishwasher model incorrectly which results in the machine skipping its first water fill period.

There are presently three different types of starting procedures being used:

  1. Pushbutton type. This system is found on all POTSCRUBBER models.
  2. "Turn-to-start" timer type. After latching the dishwasher door, you turn the timer dial until you hear a click. By advancing the timer dial beyond that point, its possible that the first water fill would be skipped. The first fill is necessary for automatic pre-rinsing of the dishes.

    View a short video about turn-to-start timers:
    Play Video
  3. The most common type is a "push-to-start" timer dial. All that is required to initiate the cycle is to push in on the timer dial. It is NOT necessary to turn the dial.
If you are unsure as to the starting procedure used by your model please consult the Owner's Manual. Download a free copy of the Owner's Manual and/or Installation Instructions.

Here is a link to the website too.. http://www.geappliances.com/search/fast/infobase/10001005.htm

Hope this gets you going..
