I just moved into a new apartment that has a Thin Twin (LTE5243D)Whitlpool gas washer/dryer. When I went to start it for the first time, the wash cycles will not work. When I try to select a wash cycle, then pull the knob to start, nothing happens. The only thing that will work is the RINSE cycle will turn on when I pull the knob.

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.
