Check to see if you have any switches on your dishwasher that could by pass a rinse cycle. Use a hotter temparture when washing, Check your water level,check your filters on your inlet hose top and bottom. When it gets to a rinse cycle you should hear it drain out and bring in fresh water. you could change to a liquid detergent. Dont over load your dishwasher. make sure you are using rinse aid and try adjusting it up one setting. Shiney glasses means your rinse add is working. NZL

as u said that u have already replaced the timer u may also try the following:
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once poweris applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring toopen up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power,the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element (most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than fullpower to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability tobend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used a mechanicalarm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals.
Newer Frigidaire dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger insidethe wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if thiswax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work.
