   UGH!  Just got done installing a new drain solenoid because the last one melted.

I put everything back together the way I found it and test ran, but the new solenoid won't actuate, it just sits there.  What did I miss?

advance the timer slowly through the whole cycle with a volt meter attached to the solenoid wires and see if you get voltage to the solenoid at all

the most common reason for the solenoid to melt is a bad timer sticking in spots

Remove wires and insert probes from multimeter. Slowly rotate timer knob a click at the time through the full cycle and see if you have voltage getting to the solenoid. If you do not get any power reading to the solenoid as you move through the cycles you have a timer problem.

A bad heat dry/air dry switch will also stop voltage from reaching the drain solenoid on some models.

Same machine, new problem.

I ordered the new timer and installed it.  I got all the wiring in the panel and the panel put back together.

I have three double-pronged plugs that I didn't think to mark when I unplugged them:  one on the motor, one on the drain solenoid and one on the water intake.  I am pretty sure at least one of them is plugged in wrong.  I have experimented with changing them around (bad idea, I know, but I'm sick of washing my own dishes) but the same problem occurs in pretty much all scenarios.  I can get the motor to run, the diswasher is filling up, the solenoid is opening the drain flapper but no water is coming from the hose.  I have checked the hose for blockaged and kinks and I know the water is making it to the hose.

Is anyone experience with this or similar models enough to tell me how the plugs are supposed to be plugged in?  Please feel free to explain it to me as though I am a child, because I know nothing about electricity and don't have the tools or experience to check voltage.

Any help is appreciated.:yikes:

Find your wiring diagram and go from there, however it sounds like you have an impeller problem. Slipping on the shaft.
