I just solved this problem myself. It's the lid lock mechanism which is located under the top cover. When I manually moved the aluminum locking tab over my washer prompty drained and spun. There are four wires total going to the switch. Well, the solid white and the white/red wires control the lid lock mechanism. You can either replace the entire switch or bypass the lid lock by wire nutting the two wires I previously mentioned together. Now, if you bypass, be forewarned the lid will open while the washer spins very fast which presents a potential danger. For immediate use, bypass until you get the replacement switch. Hope this helps your problem.

SOURCE: Wash motor timer not working
Best to contact the manufacturer of the washing machine, or the service agent. They would have access to a new or perhaps reconditioned part....Good luck....Nomess

This may not be what you wish to hear but... I suspect that the reason you have had to change timers is that a user is turning the dial counterclockwise. This will ruin the timer in one fell swoop as it bends over the contacts inside the timer and caused immediate failure. I have seen this in a few homes where the home owner had mentioned that this is the 3rd timer we have changed in as many years. In every one of the cases I asked them to select various cycles as I watched on the OLD timer. All of them at least once turned the timer CCW. Once I explained that they never turn the timer CCW.... the repeated failures stopped. Some people just never knew that it was bad to turn the timer CCW. That may be the case here. So timer rotation is ALWAYS Clockwise to avoid repeated timer changes.
I would not give up on it yet... You have barely reached mid life for the washing machine you own. At roughly $125.00 for the replacement part I can understand your concern.
It is your decision as to where to go from here. As a repair / tech I would not shoot it in the head just yet. I would look into how people are using the machine controls.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Had the same problem. After checking that all the hoses etc were clear and no blockages, then suspected that the pump (cost $90 Australian dollar) was faulty. The Westinghouse service technician acknowledged that that was probably the problem, which I then confirmed by pulling out the pump, and then carefully connecting 240V across the pump terminals. Certainly was a faulty pump. So I spent the money on a new pump and installed it and now the washing machine (6 to 7 years old) works fantastically.
