    Dear Fix Ya,

    I have had the same problem and the timer has been replaced twice on my now 6 year old Viking Dishwasher. The part is warrantied for 1 year. I ordered a new one and need to replace some of the burnt wires. What is the gauge on the wires? This website has been very helpful. Thank You.

At the point where the wiring comes from the bottom of the tank and rises up the door is prone to burning. Before doing the following remove power from your dishwasher. By removing the kickplate at the front and inspacting the bundle of wires you may note that some of the wires are lumpy or burned. These wires need to be repaired. Failing that there is a cycling thermostat mounted to the bottom of the tank above the water valve. These cycling thermos will prevent the timer from advancing there should be a wiring diagram inside of the door that will help your efforts.

The dishwasher timer knob gets stuck at a particular point each time

Very seldom does the timer go bad. The timer will often get the blame when something else is the real problem. If the dishwasher is heating water, the timer will stop until the water reaches the correct temperature. Without knowing the make and model of the dishwasher, I can’t provide a better answer.

My GSX4756 dishwasher seemed to stop mid cycle and the start light is flashing. I have pressed the start button until the light goes out but as soon as I close the door it starts again on the rinse cycle...

I think.
However, rarely have I encountered an inlet valve that emitted a burning smell. So I'd expect there to be some other problem in there.
But, if the inlet valve didn't pass the test, then it needs to be replaced. Plus, if it was stuck on the rinse cycle and the valve was out, then that is where the cycle would hang up.
Burning smells usually come from a motor, a belt, shorted wiring or a heating element. So if everything else checks out, then go for replacing the valve. The instructions are included in our dishwasher repair section.

Ge free standing dishwasher solenoid keeps melting

Bad timer. Sadly, the cost of replacing the time and the solenoid is likely prohibitive. Timer is expensive. Sorry, I know this is not what you want to hear.

Sometimes the timer on this model will stall out and cause the solenoid to burn up, this unit doesn't have a separate drain pump so the solenoid would be why it isn't draining. It's possible that the new solenoid will take care of it with no other problems but if it burns up again then you may have a bad timer

Dishwasher won't run. Worked yesterday, checked curcuit breaker, ok. water is in the bottem of washer but below the float level.

First, check the dishwasher filter and make sure it isn't clogged. Your owner's manual will have simple instructions on how to access and clean your dishwasher's filter.

Next, check the drain hose. Does it look flattened or kinked? Do you see any sharp bends? If so, straighten out the hose with your hands and manipulate it so that it regains its rounded shape.

If your dishwasher drains through the garbage disposal, try running the garbage disposal for a bit to process and clear any food. If that does not get the machine draining, you may have a deeper clog. However, most drain hoses clog either at the main household sink drain line connection or the garbage disposal connection.

Does your dishwasher spray your dishes, but it does not advance to the next stage and drain the dirty water? The timer controls the start of the draining process, so you may need an entirely new timer or a new motor for the timer. Repair service is recommended.

In some dishwashers, standing water is caused by a valve that fails to open and allow the water to drain out. This valve is controlled a solenoid that the timer controls. A malfunctioning solenoid could be the problem.

For more troubleshooting tips and solutions, see Dishwasher not draining. I hope this helps!

Bosch dishwasher timer sticking

I have been told to replace the timer which I am looking to do the same to my machine!

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!
