there should be a cut off at the dishwasher .. usually a light switch or something similar that cuts power at the dishwasher only. Check to make sure that you have that turned on.

go to home depot and buy the gnd screw if there is none in tour junction box. the electric coming into that box should be grounded. you can ground to that same screw... Look for the wire with no insulation on it that is usually the ground wire.

This timer has a lot of capability that you don't need, so you have to do a couple of things. I will assume that you are using this switch at 120V and simply want it to turn the light on and off. See page two of the drawing at this link:
(this should be the same as the instruction sheet that came with your switch if you bought it new)
First, be sure to set the DIP switches according to the instructions for 120V (all 4 switches "ON").
For your wiring, refer to the first diagram on that page labeled "Timer and Load, Same Voltage, Wired as Single Throw". The two arrows on the left are the wires from your circuit breaker. The two arrows to the right are the wires going to the lamp post. The top one is black and the bottom is white. With that in mind, you will connect both white wires to the TIMER2 terminal. You will connect the black wire coming from the breaker to the TIMER1 terminal. You will also have to add a jumper wire from the TIMER1 terminal to the COM terminal. Your black wire going to the lamp post should be connected to the NO terminal (that means Normally Open, the other one is Normally Closed.)
This should get you there. Let me know if you have other questions. Be safe, good luck, and thanks for using FixYa. Please vote is this was helpful.

SOURCE: Would this work or burn
Yes everything would work perfectly. I see no problems in your plan. Even if both fans were run off of one switch they would not burn out, the circuit it appropriately sized. You could even go a step down to save yourself some money and use 14/2 and 14/3 (supposing its only the fans running on the circuit). You can run up to 16 amps on 12 AWG wire and up to 12 amps on 14 AWG wire (80% of breaker tolerance). Also when it get to the fans use a wire junction box run your 3 wire cable in there and branch out to your fans from there with separate 2 wire cables. I believe that was your plan just wanted to clarify. Good luck!!
