Question about Dishwashers
can you hear it draining? it will start hissing at the aerator at the sink, hopefully you have an aerator-its a small usually chrome cylinder thing next to the faucet, check this, remove the top of the aerator by pulling it straight up and off, unscrew the inner part and look in there for an obstruction. if its not clogged there look inside of the dishwasher for the float switch and make sure it clicks by lifting it up and down a couple times. if that doesent do it, go under the sink with a screwdriver and remove the drain hose(its usually black or clear) that goes up to the areator, put that in a bucket and run it again to see if it will drain for you. if it wont drain then maybe an obstruction down in the trap. the trap is serviceable, just have to study the wash arm how it unscrews then usually a few more phillips screws undoes the trap screen. if this area is clear then most likely its the timer. timers on appliances are subceptible to failure due to them being forced backwards(children), and they dont last forever, the front of the door comes off with a bunch of screws, unplug or flip breaker off first, pull timer knob off front and the big nut or screws behind the main knob have to come out to take the timer switch assembly off. if its electronic remove the circuit board and take that in to sears parts store or equivalent
