Dishwasher won't drain. The timer control has that "broken" feel to it. Also customer reports timer knob got very hard to turn just prior to the misfortune.

 

I have the door apart to dig down to the timer but now I can't get the bloody thing back on. This model has a latch you must close before any activity can be initiated. So that latch doesn't want to play nice with the door lining.

 

I am shamed before the customer. Anyone know the trick? So that I may postpone seppuku yet again?

 

A manual would be sweet,

What can't you get back on, the door liner or the timer?

 

Do you have the minimanual that comes with the dishwasher?

A GE made dishwasher that I love.  Sacrilege!  But I love it all the same.  Are you sure it's the timer causing the no drain problem?  Usually the culprit is a shorted gate solenoid on the motor assy.  As far as the timer binding and being fun to put back together, check for proper installation of the timer cam and dispenser lever.  Replace timer if necessary, it's relatively inexpensive and still available.

It's the door liner. It installs in such a way as to trap the latch, am I right?

 

These folks have no manuals, no paperwork for this DW. I hope the tech sheet is still behind the kick plate.

Nope. Just a suspicion but strong enough I have a replacement on the way from RepairClinic. Hoping a repair manual can show me how to prove it, or prove that gate solenoid you mentioned.

Here's the mini manual.

Re installing panel and latch video.http://www.repaircli...irHelpVideoTabs

 

I saw that one. Not quite the same latch but hopefully close enough. I find out tomorrow since the timer came today. But I'm going to have to pull the plastic knob off the latch with a pair of pliers, undoubtedly destructive...possibly why they changed to the more expensive screw-secured knob we see in the video. Couple other things too...I didn't check this thing seriously. It was a drive-by for a friend of a friend, I had thirty minutes to look. But since it does not drain at all, I figure it has to be either the timer, which you fix, or the pump-motor assembly, which you don't. Not on a low-end Hotpoint.
