Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a Haier HDW101WH dishwasher that is about 6 years old. The cycle seems to stick at a certain point and I have to manually move the dial, or it would go on forever? Is this problem repairable.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Good to know that you want to keep this dishwasher as I believe it can be fixed. After reading your question the problem seems to be with the Timer that is bad and needs replacement. Every other part of the unit seems to be working properly, so you can check the timer motor and replace if bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: sticking programer dial

Hello zxnigel,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, The program timer on my dishwasher is sticking.
And you have to move the dial by hand as it is taking 3 hours to do the wash cycle
I think the timer needs to be replaced!

What brand an model is your machine?
And how old is your dishwasher?

Let me know this information, please.


Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old Appliance

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive applaince
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: Cycle runs forever

Th Bosch units are prone to circuit board failure and this is the common symptom. If you are electronically inclined go the applianceaid.com and search Bosch for test codes to pinpoint the issue.There is an online picture of the faulty relay solder joint I repaired mine and a neighbors, Bosch will in some cases supply parts at no charge and they do not recommend repair, however IMHO it is a repairable cold solder joint very visible on the board. If you are good with needle tip soldering iron you are in luck

Water doesn't heat up and cycle seems to be stuck, candy DFI 45


What is a Candy brand dishwasher? Made in the UK? That is not a manufacturer I have ever heard of here in the US.
What do you mean, 'doesn't seem to heat up any sense?'
If the dishwasher is older than 5 years, write it off to age a buy a new, high quality machine. Or do the dishes by hand.
Machines get old and die. If you are UK native, don't buy anothre Candy.

This seems a clear case of the timer program controller ebing faulty. The stepper motor has struck on to a point or the gears are worn out which causes the motor not moving the position.
The only way is look carefully and maybe resetting the stepper motor so that the timer moves.
If not the cost of a new program controller must be cheked.\
Present day electronic processors for programs are highly reliable which must be thought of in your next purchase.

STICKS on cycle, wash, etc. If manually moved


Do you mean the timer or control dial sticks. If so then it may be the timer mechanism itself.

Make sure that when you are skipping a turn on the timer that the machine is actually performing that particular task of the cycle. For example if the timer gets stuck before the drain cycle, and you manually skip forward to it, that it actually drains the water out.

If so then it is most likely a worn timer mechanism which sticks.

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.

Dishwasher running on a short cycle, not cleaning


It is hard to be specific without knowing the model number of your Hotpoint dishwasher and approximately how many years old it is...

If your dishwasher has a mechanical timer knob that you turn to get the dishwasher started, I would suspect that it is failing (not advancing after a certain point.)

Please report back with what you find, OK?

Frigidaire FDB710LCS0 Dishwasher dial seems to stick?


I had the same problem. Turn the HIGH TEMP buttons off. Simply turning them off corrected this problem for me. Mine got stuck in two places and I had to manually turn the dials or the washer would run all night.

Viking Dishwasher Timer Dial not advancing


The timer has given it up.  The motor has probably stopped working or the gears are jammed.  You'll need to obtain and change the timer.  Generally, there are face mounted screws that may or may not be behind some covers.  Remove them to get to the panel that holds the timer.
