I just picked up a fairly new Whirlpool Washing Machine, Model #LSR 5232LQ1 second-hand. When I ran a couple of loads through, it seemed to do all the functions--fill, agitate, drain, rinse, spin. However, the timer switch does not go through all these functions automatically. It stops mid-cycle, and the machine just sits there and hums. I have to manually advance it to the next function before it will do anything. This happened in both the Normal and Casual modes. I didn't try it in the Delicate mode. Now, it's been sitting idle for about two years according to the previous owner. So, I'm wondering whether there's a problem with the timer, and if it's something that can be reset, or does it require more than that?

Re: Whirlpool Washing Machine stops mid-cycle
Some washing machines stops the current function completely when there is loose connections in the power. As a safety precaution, the manufacturers let it go into a "reset" once you set it into another mode, it would start over. Check the power cable up until the one in the machine. Another is the lid, the witch in there may have a problem.
Another reason could be there is an issue with the coupler and the motor. You may hear the motor running but it not making much spin. It may be starting to worn out. I see this option however as the last one to check,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Troubleshoot - washer stops mid cycle, won't drain or spin .... I agree, this was not helpful, and did not address the no spin issue. like thanks. ... how to fix a Kenmore / whirlpool washing machine that wont drain agitate or spin ...
If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch
assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid
switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any
electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches
should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock
assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically
or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter.
The switches should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet
valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water
rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit
indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water
to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the
cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.
F3E2 error, Wash light flashes 3 times then 2.
Took off front lower cover, Found Manual!!!
Unscrewed filter and was so full of trash, clean and reassymbled and now works just like new. Simple fix no parts at all needed.
the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin
cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with
water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse
water. See There's no cold water.
