Sounds like an overheating problem with the motor. Does the washer sit on carpeted floor or lenolium/hrd floor? The motors of today are thermally protected, so when they overheat they stop till they cool down enough to turn themselves back on. You should have at about one inch clearance under the washer so air can flow underneath to help keep motor cool. If the clearance is not the reason then I still think your motor is overheating. When it shuts off can you try another cycle to see if it's not in the timer? If you get no response then I would say for sure you have excessive heat of the motor.

Seems that the main board or the processor is hanging up and does not take up the full process control. You need to remove the panel and check for moisture on the board, check for loose connectors. If this seems fine the fault seems related to the board and can be confirmed with a board swap before one can be ordered. Check the door switch and wiring to the main board.

IMaytag neptune washer stops at every cycle


Unplug the washer for 10 min to reboot the curcuit board. This will clear the little brain of any unwanted commands. Selecting too many cycles in a short period of time in frustration can overwelm the little brain. This can also happen with power surges from the electrical company. Undervoltage or overvoltage can cause similar problems. Rebooting clears the memory in the board and starts from scratch.

How can I fix my whirlpool thin twin washer?


It almost sounds like your motor is kicking out on overload. The fact that it starts agitating after the fill can rule out the pressure switch. You have installed a new timer so we should be able to rule that out. It's possible that your pump is binding, which is attached directly to your motor and causing it to overheat. To tell for sure you would have to check the motor to see if it's getting power when it cuts out. Check your terminal block where the power cord comes in to see if all connections are secure. Other possibilities could be the clutch and brake assy. With out being there too see the problem, this is where I would start.
