Timer stuck on cycle will work if manually moved

My washer gets stuck on the cycle. I can manually turn the timer to each of the cycles and it will run the cycle, I have to guess how long to leave on each cycle an than move it to the next. Any suggestions why the timer wont automatically move?
Thank you for your help

Re: timer stuck on cycle will work if manually moved

The timer has a small motor that advances it through the cycles. It either works or it's DOA. unfortunately you probably have to replace the timer complete.

Bosch classix 1200 exprss washing machine will not move on from the wash cycle. it will keep on washing and never moves to the rinse cycle. pump and motor works ok.

If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause is the water valve. What happens is the water valve will stop letting cold water into the washer; therefore, once the washer gets to rinse it will either stop or not do anything during the whole rinse cycle.
This is because when you selected your water temperature, you selected warm/cold or hot/cold. The hot water came in and you didn't notice any problems. When it got to rinse, the cold water the cold water won't come in. Therefore, the washer does nothing.
To check the water valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.
If your washer doesn't go through the washer rinse cycle the timer may be the problem. Sometimes the timer gets stuck in the middle of the cycle or won't turn at all. If the washer runs, but the timer doesn't turn, the timer is bad and needs replacing.
Do you have anti-flood hoses leading to the machine. If you do there is probably a loose tube in the back causing a small leak. When the hoses detect that water is still flowing after a certain amount of time due to the leak it shuts down and causes the machine to turn off during the rinse/spin cycle

My washer gets stuck on a cycle

if you can manually move the timer to the next cycle and all works fine then you have a bad timer on unit... there are sevral gears in the timer usually made of plastic and over time thaey can get worn and not allow the timer to advance... if all works when you move the timer then most likely this is your problem (the timer) good luck to you

Kenmore 300 washing machine does not leave rinse cycle

This sounds like a bad timer. If the machine is several years old, the timer could be in need of replacement.

If you are handy, you can replace this device yourself and you should be able to obtain the part from any local Sears parts store or from the internet.

If you are not familiar with this kind of work, it would be best to have a technician replace the timer.

Starts, but does not move on through cycles

check your lid switch may be broken. or could be your timer does it stop and not advance? if it gets stuck you more than likey have a broken lid switch. but if it gets stuck in one cycle and keeps washing and washing and washing you more have a bad timer.

Frigidaire washing machine gets stuck on cycles

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's 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.

  • It 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.

Front load washder does not go through with cylce

hello nplooj

You said, front load washer would not continue through the cycle. For example, when I turn on the wash cycle, it will stay at that position and does not go to the next cycle. Every time I want the machine to move from one cycle to the next I have to do it manually such as from wash cycle to rinse cycle. The dial won't not turn unless I turn it manually. Please give me a suggestion of what part of the machine is not working properly. Per my understand and my friend told me, it is probably the time is not working. If that is the problem, can I replace the timer myself and how much it cost for the replacement part.

You do have an ATF6000 front load washer?This is made by Frigidaire or Electrolux
Did you get any error code?
Like an "F1" ?

Yes it can be replaced It is part of the,
Control Board,pc ,with housing $ 139.22
Here is the site with the parts.

Let me know how you do.

Asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle

Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.
