Question about Washing Machines
The problem is either a faulty pressure switch or a defective timer board. The first one is a more common fault.
The pressure switch senses the level of water remaining in the tub. By closing and opening the switch determines the advancement of the timer board.
If the washer skips fill, drain or agitate, then the problem is likely the pressure switch.
Sometimes the switch can be superficially tested or even fixed by blowing inside the rubber tube attached to the switch.
A full test on the switch is performed reading Ohms at switch's terminal while blowing into the hose.
If the water level switch is OK, then the faulty part is the timer control.
The water level is part 8 in diagram below:
