    THANK YOU!! It is my elderly neighbors washing machine. :-)

    This is the cheapest way to go:

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 20, 2013

    Before purchasing a timer, check the drain hose between the tub and drain pump for a clog and verify that the drain pump itself is not jambed. The tub must drain before machine will spin. So it could be that simple.

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 20, 2013

    Also you can examine the timer and usually determine if it's bad by removing the plastic slide piece. Look at the leaf fingers with good light. Use a small pocket screw driver or equivalent to lift the fingers. You will see points type contactors. The spin contactor is usually on the far left and will have blackness around it. It is the hardest working contactor in the timer, so look for it to be worn down with a splashy look. Compare it to it's neighbor if you aren't sure. If it looks good, or pretty good don't replace it. Let me know, we will look for the problem somewhere else.

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 20, 2013

    Probably should have said unplug the machine and remove the timer to inspect it.

  • Peg Hubner Jan 20, 2013

    LOL, okay, my neighbor isn';t home yet, when she comes home I will start investigating. You have been an amaIng help, thank you!!!! :-)
