I've looked at a few of these dishwashers since posting in 2014 on my first encounter with one. On this one the timer is stalled at the 7 o'clock position. I found one of the electrical terminals on the hi limit thermostat was discolored but the rivets were tight; still, I replaced the t-stat and the heater which was looking slightly worn.
The timer continues to stall at the 7 o'clock position. There is power to both the thermostats and both ohm good with no resistance. I unplugged them to see if the timer would advance but it did not.
I'm wondering if there may have been an electric arc inside the timer that may have burned a contact point. I see these timers are quite costly and don't want to go out and buy one, just yet.
Has anyone actually replaced a timer on this unit or seen another factor to look for, instead of the timer and the other usual suspects?
