INTRODUCTION
The material presented in this module is intended to provide you with an understanding of the
fundamentals of dishwasher and trash masher® compactor servicing.

Major appliances have become more sophisticated, taking them out of the screwdriver and pliers
category. Their electrical circuits include several different types of automatic controls, switches,
heaters, valves, etc.. Semiconductors, solid-state controls, and other components usually
associated with radio and television electronic circuits are being engineered into automatic
washers, dryers, dishwashers, and refrigerators.

The appliance technician is emerging into a professional status of his own. He must prepare
himself now to be able to perform his duties today as well as to retain his professionalism in the
future.

No longer is on-the-job training sufficient to prepare technicians for the complicated procedures
required for todays sophisticated appliances. This training can best be obtained through organized
classroom study and application. However, much of the knowledge necessary to service todays
appliances can be obtained through study courses. Completion of this and other courses will
provide you with sufficient understanding of appliances and their operation to enable you to do
minor service. It will also serve as a valuable stepping stone to more advanced study and on-the-
job training to improve your servicing skills.

Information contained in this module is used on WHIRLPOOL® appliances. It is separated into


two sections for your convenience. Chapter 1 covers porcelain liner models (1986 and older), and
Chapter 2 covers plastic liner models (1986 and newer).

TIMER MOTOR
Timer motors may vary slightly in appearance, but
regardless of the differences each functions in the
same manner as the others. It is a synchronous-
type motor, similar to those used in electrical
clocks, with a small pinion which drives a gear. This
part is located on the timer assembly and is used to
advance the timer through the cycles.

CHECKING PROCEDURE

Obtain an ohmmeter from your local store. We will


be doing RESISTANCE checks. This is the safest
way because the dishwasher is unplugged from the
power source and avoids the possibility of receiving
an electrical shock.

Step1 Disconnect the two wires coming from the


motor, marking them as to what terminals they
were on. This procedure should assure that the
right wire is reconnected to the right terminal after
checking or replacement.
