I suspect you have a timer motor problem. My experience has been in most cases you cannot buy just the timer moter, you need to purchase the entire timer....at costly expense. If you can get your ear near the timer while running, first listen to hear the motor. Usually when the motor is going to quit, it becomes fairly noisy. In any case, the timer should advance,

I was just looking for a part for mine, too. On the tag inside the front door is the pre-printed prefix 110. that goes with the 86950100 that's printed later. So, I entered 110.86950100 and found the information for my model.
My unit has been working reliably for many years now, and some parts are not available anymore. I think I bought it in about 1985. I replaced a thermal cut-off switch in 2009 for $15 locally. I also have a matching washer. I've never had any failures with it. Bear in mind that I was single for 20 of those years with only a few girlfriend-hours on them. :-)
The direct link to Sears parts for my specific model is http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.86950100.
Hope this helps.
