    My wife experienced a glitch that caused the machine to not complete a cycle.

    A. Whites cycle: timer had moved to the off position with water still in the tub, she selected another cycle and the machine ran all the way thru the cycle.

    B. Gentle cycle: the machine agitated for a few seconds then stopped, again she reset and the machine completed a the gentle cycle.

    I am leaning toward the timer as the problem, what am i not lokking at? Maytag Atlantis CIRCA 2000.

Most people over look a timer problem

My maytag atlantis washing machine sometimes fills and fills with water to start a cycle, but drains at the same time. This means it never senses the water level as full enough to begin, so it just fills and fills for hours on end. It's like the sensor for how full the load is is broken, or something. Any similar problems? Know how to fix it?

When would the washer stop?
Is there water in the washer when it stops?

    Then its could be the drain pump.
    The machine pumps water for certain amount of time. In that time if the water does not get pumped then it will not go properly into the next stage of cycle (rinse, dry).
    Check to see if something is blocking the drain pump.
    (I have noticed pieces of clothing like socks could somehow get in there, don't know how)

    open the front and check the pump. The drain water should be quite forceful when its getting pumped. move the switch the rinse and check.

My maytag mav6200aww washer stops at the rinse or the spin cycle. However, if I wait about 30 min it will work. Possibly a bad timer? Are they difficult to replace?

If the washer is working properly in the wash cycle & not the rinse or spin cycle, I would suspect a defective timer especially with the delay of 30 mins you described. Replace the timer with this part.

I think my Maytag MAV6200AWW washer has a bad tub seal & bearing

if you have had this unit for over 5 years Then it is TOTALLY NOT worth the repair - if it is only a year or 2 old then call MAYTAG and they may offer a parts/labor concession. average life is 5-10 years now as sucky as that is!!

Maytag mav6200aww washing machine doesn't rinse clothes

If you say this only happens on the Colors and Whites cycle i dont see what the lid switch or balance sensor (if your washer has one) would have to do with it. It does seem like it has something to do with the timer,,, it really sounds like maybe the (Colors & Whites) section of the timer is malfunctioning. Inside the timer, there are a series of gears and switches, and by slamming the lid, or tapping on the timer control knob,,, it could maybe help the damaged part of the gear move, temporarily "fixing" the problem

Maytag Washer Not Completely Rinsing

If your washer has an extra rinse button try pushing it. My Maytag refuses to wash unless that button is pushed, so in your case it may not be completing the rinse cycle correctly.

Just a suggestion.
