I am using the washing machine, but it does not complete all of the cycles, once it gets to the rinse/spin (and the timer shows 1 minute left,) it stays there and never changes to the last cycle of drain/spin.
I suspect that has something to do with the different electricity cycle as the washer in question is plugged in a line that while is 120 volts, it is 50Hz (is being used overseas.)
I have been told that when the electricity cycles is different, it may retard the timer.
If the electricity cycles is the problem, is there any solution?; if it is not the electricty, what could be the solution?

Re: 120 volts 50 hz
the Electrical Requirements of this device:
15 OR 20 Ampere, 120 Volts, 60 Hertz (1/second).
go to elctronics shop with these details and buy a transformer wich will translate your current Volt\ampere\frequency to what the device needs
wich from what i understand needs higher frequency

Hello there: If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's
the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin
cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It
may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with
water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse
water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter
CHECK THE LID SWITCH THE PART THAT PUSHES THE SWITCH DOWN MAY BE WORN ENOUGH TO CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. WITH THE LID OPEN START THE WASHER IN THE SPIN CYCLE AND PUSH THE SWITCH WITH A POPSICKEL STICK AND SEE IF THIS PROBLEM STILL HAPPENS
it may be an intermittent door lock switch. i believe on your model when you remove the front access panel you will find a pair of wires in a plug with nothing attached to them on the r/h side where the wire harness runs. when you are in the spin cycle, check with a multimeter for 0 volts across the 2 wires. if you are showing 120 volts, then your door lock is bad. if yours has never been changed it actually has been updated to a new style. costs about $120.00 for the part. instructions should come with revised part
washer fills up but wont start washing i can turn the knob just passed the numbers and the little marks and it starts washing and when it gets to the rinse cycle it wont rinse but when it gets to spin cycle it spins good
