Washer starts and will not cycle thru the entire cycle
Can advance the dial and restart but then shuts down again at the end of that cycle--must move manually to the next cycle, it starts and then shuts down again at the end of that cycle--replaced the time but no change in operation

Dear William, I guess first you have to check if the start switch is shorted. When you turn on the machine, does it automatically go into cycle? If yes, then your start switch is faulty. Otherwise, you may have to replace your timer/sequencer.
Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water
Okay...try unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes. This will often cure momentary glitches with the washer computer. After the washer has been reset, attempt the start a load and let me know if it functions normally. If it doesn't, let me know what the front panel display reads.
Had a repair man here for the same issue. Learned two things:
1. Too much detergent causes 'soap lock.' The electronics will get confused when there's too many suds left after a rinse and shut the spin cycle down. That's why re-running the entire cycle without more detergent solves the problem. Use less detergent.
2. There is a way to manually get the spin cycle to run using diagnostics codes. Here's what my guy did:
a. Washer selection knob in OFF position.
b. Hold the 'Spin Selection' and 'Delay Start' buttons down at the same time.
c. While holding those two buttons, turn the Washing selector knob to Permanent Press-Cold.
d. Keep the buttons held down until the LCD control panel reads 'P:01'
d. Release buttons.
e. Use the 'Spin Selection' button to cycle thru the codes. Stop when it reads 'P:04' which is the spin cycle.
f. Press 'Start/Pause' button to begin the spin cycle.
I don't know what the other codes do but this should save you from having to run the entire wash cycle.
Mom, it sounds like a timer issue, not advancing. If your model number ends in RFS0, your part number would be 131436800. Cost of the timer is around 90.00. This is not a hard repair. Catriver..post back.
