My Kenmore dishwasher will fill, wash, & drain - as long as I move the dial for it.  I replaced the timer, but it is still hangs.

Before the timer replacement, the water would keep filling until it flooded my kitchen.  Now, the water shuts off, but it stays in the wash cycle indefinitely and the dial doesn't move from where I put it.  It also drains completely but keeps trying to drain until I move the dial.  Heat doesn't seem to be a factor as it is getting Very hot - so I don't 'think' it's the element.  Could this be the dial itself?  If so, what do I do?

Side note - The only setting on the dial that my dishwasher will fill is the "light wash".  The normal heavy wash setting only tries to wash and doesn't fill at all.

The symptoms you describe, Kleep, can only point to the timer. If you were smart, you bought it from my parts partner because they'll replace it with no fuss, no muss.

Thanks so much for your help.

Got the part from Sears.  Could it really be that the new timer was broken too?  Should I keep trying to replace the timer, or is it time for a new dishwasher?
