Replacing timer on a whirlpool lsr8433kq0

Machine shut off during rinse. If you jiggle the timer sometimes it will start again but shut off within a few minutes. I think its a bad timer. Can someone confirm and can I replace it myself?
Thanks Garrett

Garret,
Yep... it sure sounds like a failed timer. I looked it up for you, the part number is 3948852. You can find it online or see if you can get one from a local appliance parts retailer.

    I forgot to mention... Yes, you can definitely replace it yourself. It's a snap.

    UNPLUG THE WASHER! The timer knob simply unscrews, then the timer knob "skirt" slips off the timer shaft. Under the skirt, you'll see two 5/16" screws that mount the timer to the control panel. Now just unplug the old timer from the wire harness, plug in the new one, mount it to the control panel and finish the rebuild! Total job time is ~ 20 minutes.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II, top loading washer. Upon intial start up the machine agitates. During the spin cycle, the cold water remains ON, throughout the cycle. This is leaving the clothes wet...


The timer is at fault.
During the spin cycle the timer should send intermittent power to the water valve. This activates cold to help rinse soap residue from the laundry.
If cold is continuous it means the timer is not breaking correctly.

Washing machine does not drain during rinse cycle?


Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2 minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to do this a few times to verify the problem.

If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....


Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.

Stops during rinse cycle


Dear customer,

              We recommend the following when a washer's cycles dont advance..
  1. If the washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer does not advance, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  2. If the timer does not advance while the washer is in a spin cycle, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  3. If the timer does not advance during the rinse cycle, check whether water has filled the tub, if not, it is likely cold water related. Check the cold water supply valve, check the supply hose for kinks, check the filter screen and check the water inlet valve
For details on how to self test these parts plz refer to http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/washer/washer.php
Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Your transmission is not engaging thats why the speed changes your making will sometimes get it to work.Honestly any machine after the 10 year age mark is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission.
