After several high voltage fluctuations (due to a neutral wire being knocked loose by tree trimmers) the dispenser cup won't open. Had a couple other problems but they have been fixed. Per the free appliance "fixit" manuals on the Internet, I have tested the Wax motor (I have even replaced it even tho it tested good) to no avail. I have tested the actuator lever in the door and it is good. When I move it manually the dispenser cup opens like it should with no resistance. Any ideas where I might go next other than to have a repair guy come in or buy a new one?

Whirlpool 980 Series cup won't open

Thanks Jake. I assumed (wrongly I guess) that seeing that all other functions were working properly that the timer was probably ok. I will check it out. Thanks for the info. Regards, Carl
