Question about Washing Machines
If this is a TOP LOADER, the symptoms you describe are typical of a lid switch malfunction. If the lid switch is not making proper contact, the washer will fill, agitate (in some models) , then when it gets to the rinse cycle, the washer just stops. If these are your symptoms, I would recommend inspecting the lid switch to make sure it is not loose or broken. The switch should activate when opening and closing the washer lid. In many cases, all that is required is to tighten the mounting screws on the switch, and the problem will go away.
If this is a FRONT LOADER, the problem could be related to drain pump malfunction or control board, and the problem will usually have an associated error code displayed on the front panel.
As you can see, the symptoms between washer types can differ greatly. I do not know from your description, exactly what type of washer you have. That is why it is recommended that you provide as much information as possible when submitting your question(s) so it can make a diagnosis much easier. Please post back with your make and model number, so I can make a determination for you.
I hope I may assist you further.

ngafm At your service!
What is the make & model???????????????????
Sounds like an electronic problem?
If I were there hands on I could be definite.
Only a hands on laundry tech can make the diagnoses.
How old is the washer?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
You will be fine
Bless You ngafm
