Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Is the water hot?

My whirlpool is doing same thing. Water is hot and if I advance knob manually it will drain. Then I have to move it to rinse, then to drain, then to dry manually. It is almost 20 years old. Does this sound like it is just the timer?


The timer would be my first guess if it is not advancing.
