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.

Hi,
No, the problem in not the unit, it is programed to run up to 3-3 1/2 hours for a single cycle. You can select quick wash to shorten this time down, but this is not a problem with the unit. It wants to assure you have clean dishes and hot enough water to complete the program.
In testing one a few days ago, I ran into this same problem, I reread the time charts and cycles and found this to be normal for this manufacture.
I hope this answered your question.

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.

Candy cs455m programe stops at about 3oclock on the dial


Yes heatr should be submerged in the water. Not expose to free air.Check the water level float switch or the pressure switch.

The replace timer should be identical in design. If there is a mismatch it will not function as designed.

If it is elctronic micro controller type the same part no and soft ware version should be used.

Ariston LS 2020 taking more than two hours to go through cycle.


Ariston and on and on...lol

The water temp thermostat is to blame or the water is not heating.Basically what happens is the washer fills with cold water and starts to wash and heat at the same time.Once the water reaches a certain temperature it moves onto the next stage of the wash program.If the water is not heating or the thermostat is not working the programmer wont get the signal to move on.Hope this helps.

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.

Dishwasher runs several hours


OK, that several hour wash cycle seems to be very abnormal and, the only way this can happen is if the timer control mechanism is damaged. this is referred to as a Overrun error. simply replacing the timer will fix this issue.

Dial Timer sticks between wash or rinse modes


Hello. Is the water getting hot? Usually the timer won't advance because it isn't getting a signal from the thermostat that is on the bottom of the tub, so it thinks that the water isn't hot enough to go through the rest of the cycle. That is if the water is hot. If it isn't hot then you may need a new heater. You may or may not need a new timer. Try the thermostat first because that is usually the thing that goes out and it is less expensive than the timer. You can order it from www.coastparts.com or www.marcone.com .
Let me know if you need anymore help.

Dial gets stuck


MOST DISHWASHERS HAVE A PAUSE DURING THE HEAT
CYCLE IF TH WATER ISN'T HOT ENOUGH OR IF A HIGH
TEMP WASH IS SELECTED. NORMALLY, THE TIMER WILL
ADVANCE WHEN THE TEMP IS HOT ENOUGH TO TRIP THE
THERMOSTAT. IF IT NEVER GOES PAST THAT POINT, THERE MAY BE A FAILURE IN THE HEATER CIRCUIT.
