My top loading whirlpool washer, model # SAV365ZAWW, will will stop and not drain or spin in the regular cycle . All I hear is the timer ticking. I have to change to wrinkle free fabrics or delicates cycle spin mode to get it to work. Sometimes even there it won't work and have to wait for about 20 minutes to get the job done. Please help. Thanks!!!

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.
Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.
Assuming that this is a basic top load, direct drive, neutral drain washer it seems as if the problem is likely in the timer.
The transmission and draining are controlled by the motor which gets it's power through the timer. If the timer isn't advancing once it gets to the spin cycle area, the motor keeps getting power, the machine keeps spinning and only by pushing in the control knob will the motor stop.
Here are a couple of places to look at how the machine works and parts for a basic Kenmore washer.
HI, this timer is faulty and, these are early warning signs of potential failuer of this device in the near future. i would prepare to replace the timer control soon. the actual mechanism is showing signs of breakdown.
washer fills up but wont start washing i can turn the knob just passed the numbers and the little marks and it starts washing and when it gets to the rinse cycle it wont rinse but when it gets to spin cycle it spins good
