Dial won't move automatically

The dial is staying in whatever cycle I put it on and won't move unless I do it manually. Also it won't spin fully.Any help would be appreciated.

The dial is not a timer that moves through the prog, it is a selector switch, which selects the programme you require, and therefore does not move round
You need to check the filter re the spin prob.
Remove rear panel, remove large black hose from bottom of tub, remove filter, and clean.
Refit filter and hose.
Test for leaks

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

My washer will not switch from one cycle to the next


I understand that your washer is not advancing and stuck on one cycle. If you provide a Model and serial number, it will be helpful.

My Kenmore washer drains after the rinse cycle but won't spin at the end of it's cycle. If I manually set it to the spin cycle, it spins just fine. Desperate!!! The lid switch was just replaced about


Possible there is problem with the timer controller unit. It seems that the stepper motor is not moving to the next cycle until you manually move it to the spin. You can use some contact cleaners on the switch and also carefully try to see if the timer moves within , replacement is a costly issue and must be debated

The Spin Cycle does not work


Suspect that the Timer module is faulty as it does not move automatically to the SPIN mode.
You need to try with another program cycle to confirm or otherwise replacement is the only option. check on cost and options..

Washer when set turns on and fills and agitates. But will not move to next cycle automatically. I can manually move the dial to rinse / spin and it works properly. But again won't move to final spin...


From the way you discribe it, sounds like you have a bad timer.If you decide to fix it yourself be sure to mark the wires before removing the timer.

Machine will not automatically advance thru cycles


The timer has a motor used to advance it through the cycles. If the machine fills with water and the timer stays in one position no matter where you put it......even in the spin cycle, then replace your timer.
