I have a GE dishwasher model # GSD1200T02.
Would a bad timer cause the drain solenoid to no close? If I listen when
the unit goes from darin to fill and open the door - cutting power- The
solenoid closes and the unit is allowed to fill. If I don't do this all the
fill water goes out the drain.
How much of a pain is it to get to the timer and would it do any good to
clean contacts ?
?Close?...probably not, a bad timer may not send power to the drain
solenoid so it cannot energize and open the drain valve.
The timer would have to be sending power to the drain solenoid all the
time to keep it open and to prematurly drain out the water....opening
the door and closing it wouldn't help....more possible something
mechanical is sticking/stuck....the drain valve recloses with a
spring....have seen the drain solenoid cook a bit and the plunger gets
stuck inside. Also the drain hose must have a high loop in it and
cannot go straight down through the floor.
Fairly easy with the power off, need to seperate the outer panals and
consol from the inner door panal...see the screws around the door
