Hello,
If I am correct in my assumption that when you set it to a certain programme it seems not to be at the correct one that you thought.Then this is not the timer at fault but some little plastic cogs behind the control knob when these break either due to normal wear and tear or some one trying to turn the timer the wrong way.The Main cam and the indicator will need replacing.This is not an exspensive repair for parts anyway.
Hope I was of some help.

Good Luck

Drum wont turn but the moter does


Hello Deanna - This particular issue could be caused by a variety of reasons. I would suggest trying the following steps:

1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then that means the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.

If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.

3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.

4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

HI. This problem concerns the integrity of the actual timer mechanism. The dial cogs seems to be worn, and the timer motor may be failing to advance in that particular section of the dial plate. This type of malfunction will require you to replace the timer control mechanism, asap.

Will not finish cycles, two hours later I will look and the tub is full of water or it may not finish spin cycle. Suspect the control timmer?


The timer mechanism is faulty. The timer is the mechanical computer of any washing machine. It simply works by connecting different circuits together for a predetermined time. If a particular cycle isn't working, the timer unit will need to be replaced. You can manually advance the timing unit by pulling out the knob in the middle of the unit, rotate the dial to the desired cycle then push the knob in- that will start that cycle. Good luck, Jim

Water pumping out at a trickle. stops in mid cycle


The timer seems to have gone out on you. Try to manually set it on spin and if that works then the timer is out.

Washer gets no power


are you sure the outlet has power? make certain by plugging in a lamp or something else to the outlet first. the timer does have to get power to turn on the unit, but its not likely it is the problem.
try a different cycle and see if it wont run on any position. like fill, wash or spin. then if your outlet is ok, it could be the timer.
i dont think it is but it could happen. usually if the timer fails, it will work on some cycles but not all of them. if it wont work on any cycle then i would expect the outlet first.
