How to display automations in Google Assistant via Home Assistant Cloud

I have set an automation to turn my dishwasher on for a given timed period.

How do I display the automation in Google Assistant? I just want to be able to call the automation up by voice.

At present I tried to create a cloud.yaml file which contains:

- automation.dishwashertimeron
- switch
- automation
name: Dishwasher
room: kitchen

All the switches appear correctly but none of the automations appear. I tried both including the automation domain and also the actual entity. As usual I am guessing and trying but it takes quite a long time when you have to keep unlinking and relinking the google assistant account. Any advice greatly appreciated.
