    Default Dishwasher Timer Replacement

    Has anyone had any experience replacing their Whirlpool or other dishwasher timer?
    If so, did you have a problem replacing the Cam Follower?
    Does any one know what does the Cam Follower do anyway?
    I'm tempted to simply leave it out of the reinstallation.
    Any Help is greatly needed and much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    The cam turned by the timer opens the soap dispenser cup at the proper time during the cycle. It can also operate Jet Dry dispenser. It might work ok without it but you'd have to add more soap at the proper time manually.

    Thank you for your help. This information is the piece of the puzzle that I was missing. All I have to do now is align the slots of the cam follower with the soap dispenser and the opposite end to the timer and I'm done.
    Thank you and may all your future projects be easy.... : )
