Question about Washing Machines
As you have already replaced the timer it certainly points towards another issues occuring during the cycle.
The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are many possible causes of this fault.
However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking are filling and emptying problems. As you seem to indicate that the machine is sticking when it comes to the end of a wash cycle and also that the machine is heating up properly the problem would seem to point more towards a drainage issue than a problem with the thermostat although sometimes these problems can occur in the cycle if the machine is overheating and this would indeed indicate a faulty thermostat.
If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses and not move on in the cycle. The possible problems here are blockages or pump failure. Blockages are the more likely explanation but pumps can fail also. Some washing machines have a filter at the front of the machine that can be checked for blockages. This filter can be found behind a removable kick panel at the base of the front. Remove this panel - drain the machine and check the filter.
In your case I would also be looking at checking the drainage behind the machine to ensure no blockage or pinched drainage hose. The hose should also sit loosly in the stand up as these machines require an airgap to drain properly.
If you feel that the machine is overheating the thermostat would be the next thing to check as the machine will be aborting mid cycle if this is the case.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.
