If the clock motor is not keeping correct time, then it has gotten weak and needs to be replaced.
Paragon is still making defrost/HVAC timers and parts.
Clock motors have numbers.

When starting a cycle, tub will fill properly, then when it is time for the wash cycle to begin, nothing happens. you can only hear a relay or other type switch click one time. after the one click, the...

The question is why the main motor is not running. Either there is an open contact in the timer, or the motor has a blown thermal protector or tripped internal breaker.

Troubleshooting starts at the timer. Most washing machines have a wiring diagram on a sheet of paper either folded up and stored inside the control panel or pasted on the back panel of the machine. Find the wires going from the timer to the motor. The motor has two windings, RUN and START. The RUN winding has one connection to neutral (WHT or WHT/BLK, meaning white or white with a black stripe) and the other to the timer. The START winding has both connections going to the timer. The timer connects it power one way for agitate and the other way for spin. (The direction of current through the START winding determines whether the motor will turn clockwise or counterclockwise.)

If you are comfortable working in a live 120 VAC circuit with a voltmeter, use the wire colors in the diagram to identify the motor terminals on the timer, set the timer to the agitate position (i. e., right after the machine is done filling and you hear the click), then check for voltage on the RUN and the START winding terminals. For the START winding, measure between the terminals going to the START.

If you don't want to probe a live circuit, you can use an ohmmeter to test for continuity between the hot terminal of the power cord and the motor terminals on the timer. Repeat for the neutral terminal. A failure at this point indicates either a timer problem or (unlikely since the timer runs) a bad contact on the water level switch.

If you get voltage to the motor on both windings, or you have continuity through the timer for both windings, then, with the machine unplugged, test for continuity through each motor winding at the timer. An open indicates a problem with the motor. Note: most machines use a capacitor in series with the START winding. In that case, measure continuity between the capacitor terminal going to the motor and the timer terminal going directly to the motor.

The digital timer comes on but it does not show advance to show your accomplishments. The count, remain at zero.

You will need to check the speed sensor for proper alignment and function. it should be located near the front roller or mounted on the motor. It should be within a credit cards width of the magnet or toothed wheel. If properly adjusted check with an ammeter to see if it is opening and closing by manually spinning the front roller or motor flywheel. If it isn't replace the sensor. If it is functioning make sure you are getting 5vdc to it across the wires. If you are not replace the upper control board(console). If you are getting the proper voltage then replace the lower control board(motor controller).

Soap door will not open during washing cycle

Hi there,

Well as controlling cycle times, the timer on many dishwashers also functions as an actuator for the spring-loaded dispenser door. At a certain specific time during the cycle, the timer will activate a lever that in turn opens the detergent cup. If that lever is broken or in some way defective, it will need to be replaced. Alternatively, the timer's motor itself could be the problem. If your timer is not functioning properly, then the dispenser door may not function properly either. Test your dishwasher's timer motor, and if it is broken, you can replace either the entire timer assembly or just the timer motor. Please post the model number of your dishwasher for more help or information.......

Good Luck!!

The timer does not work proper for example set

I must assume it is an electronic touch pad timer control. This control usually cannot be repaired; only replaced. If you want to replace the control board, you must first see if the grounding is proper (always make sure there is good grounding because of electronic flukeyness).Otherwise, you can live with this problem if you learn how to overcompensate the setting each time. Goodluck, Macgivor
