December 18, 2009, Newsletter Issue #99: My Dishwasher Won't Start, Again!

Tip of the Week

If you have a dishwasher that refuses to start, check your cycle selector switches with an ohmmeter. Check your owner manual for the exact configuration and layout of your selector switches. If one of them is bad, it can interfere with the general operation of the machine. Another culprit for a machine that won't start? A bad timer assembly motor. Check this as well. If the timer assembly motor fails, you may replace this instead of the entire timer assembly. It is less expensive, and less work. You will need to reference your owner's manual and use the Ohmmeter to check the motor and assembly. If parts of the assembly itself have gone bad you may need a new dishwasher part in the form of an entire assembly.
