Shuts itself off before each Rinse or spin cycle.

Each time the cycle reaches the 1, 2, or 3 of the rinse cycle or the beginning spin cycle, the machine turns off. It will come back on when the dial is turned one "click" and the on button is pressed.

It is possible you have a dead spot in the mechanical timer and it needs to be replaced.

Maybe your spin or rinse cycle button is in the off mode. Refer to your user's manual, if you hv one.

My washing machine top loader once reaches the spin cycle, with 21minutes time remaining, it goes back to rinse and repeats the cycle. What is the problem of my washer and how do I fix it? Thanks

If the washing is not distributed evenly by the time it reaches the rinse/spin cycle, it goes back to rinse cycle. Be present at the machine when it reaches the spin cycle. observe the drum to see if it is of balance and swaying to the sides, if so distribute washing evenly. Usually happens if there is a big garment or more with smaller items,

The motor turns in one direction to wash and the other to spin. If it will not spin I feel sure it's a bad motor.

Shutting down on rinse cycle

Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.
