  1. I bought a new timer for a Dishlex dx102WB*00 part number Timer 0574400063, but it didnt come with the plug in diagram, has about 12 small plugs. Can anyone help me to find that diagram online. Shop that sold it to me cant help. Thanks. My timer looks exactly like the one in your video. Its the mechanical type.

  2. I’ve got the old school dial timer. Ever since this Whirlpool machine started acting up, I was smelling something. It wasn’t tripping the breaker. I could get it to run for a second by unplugging it and then plugging it back in to the wall socket. I think the smell is a poor connection. It’s working and I didn’t do anything! Sounds logical. I’m going after the door wiring at the hinge.

  3. It probably is the same part. The dial timer. These appliances are cookie cutter technology and manufacture. Also to know, all these machines come with schematic diagrams taped somewhere inside each machine. Pretty cool. I’ve repaired my washing machine, my clothes dryer and my dishwasher. I’m not an appliance tech.

  4. make sure the door is closed all the way. if it seems closed, open it and close it forcefully. twice now that has fixed No Start, No Reset, No Choice of wash modes.

  5. Left with Daughters Whirlpool 24″, How do I start it after loading. sequence on panel boad.HELP.  813-361-8322

  6. I love this site! You have helped me so much. Not too mention the money you have saved me by fixing it myself! Thanks Repair Clinic!

  7. Also on some newer models there is a small reset button behind the bottom access panel that may need to be pushed.

  8. Fixed my GE dishwasher 👍 replaced the control board I ordered from RepairClinic. Took couple months for the part as it was out of stock but it’s was worth the wait. And they shipped to Canada. Awesome 👍

  9. I have a maytag model mdb6600aww quiet series 200, which will fill but not start to wash. Push the start button again it will drain. Replaced door latch module and circuit board, still nothing. Any suggestions?
