Sounds to me that the timer behind the dial is working improperly this is a cam operated timer and sounds like its malfunctioning. I cant look up the parts list off any site with the numbers u gave. but if I had to guess that cam timer is broke but a little troubleshooting would verify. remember if you decide to take a look inside the back panel yourself there are arc flash potential and electrocution. read manufacturer warnings and you may get lucky and remove the panel and find a schematic and troubleshooting guide. good luck.

SOURCE: Whirlpool top Loading washing machine won't spin on spin cycle

If the washer won't finish a spin cycle, it probably means that your timer went bad or stalled. You can take the control panel off and look at the contacts for scorching or corrosion.

SOURCE: Whirlpool AWM 6145/3 gets stuck

That's a timer problem. Check on the user's manual on how to reset the timer settings. The timer can be replace if found defective but you need a pro technician to do it.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Most have snaps holding the top down. Just, carefully, pry upward at the front of the lid edge.

Whirlpool Thin Twin randomly skips agitation during the cycle.


Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine gets stuck in cycle.


Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.
