This may not be what you wish to hear but... I suspect that the reason you have had to change timers is that a user is turning the dial counterclockwise. This will ruin the timer in one fell swoop as it bends over the contacts inside the timer and caused immediate failure. I have seen this in a few homes where the home owner had mentioned that this is the 3rd timer we have changed in as many years. In every one of the cases I asked them to select various cycles as I watched on the OLD timer. All of them at least once turned the timer CCW. Once I explained that they never turn the timer CCW.... the repeated failures stopped. Some people just never knew that it was bad to turn the timer CCW. That may be the case here. So timer rotation is ALWAYS Clockwise to avoid repeated timer changes.
I would not give up on it yet... You have barely reached mid life for the washing machine you own. At roughly $125.00 for the replacement part I can understand your concern.
It is your decision as to where to go from here. As a repair / tech I would not shoot it in the head just yet. I would look into how people are using the machine controls.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
