I have replaced many major components on this unit, it seems to take hours to do one load, and the dial selector does not advance through the various stages. I have to manually advance each stage if I want my laundry done in less than twelve hours. Any ideas?

Hello Reinaldo Rivera - From what you have described the unit seems to either have a communication problem with the control, an issue with the wiring harness or a faulty door switch. Try resetting the unit by flipping the household circuit breaker or unplugging. Wait approximately two minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and if issue continues then I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has troubleshooting and testing procedures. AND, in particular, if this is a basic top load machine, specific instructions for how to remove the timer. (There are two types with different procedures.) I'd go through the testing procedures before assuming that the timer is bad though.
yes you do have to remove the top off the washer and the washer should come with a mounting kit that must be used when stacking this unit. as far as your filling and draining problem i have had this problem several times before you have to replace your speed control board or sometimes called the speed control unit in the lower right hand corner of your washer
soap drawer is just a slide fit - give it a good yank.
for the dryer, take the top off and there should be a mainifold across the top with stats mounted on it. one or two may be re-settable stats ie have a little button in the middle which press to reset. if this works, cause of stat popping out is usually a lint blockage in the dryer manifold
