Hello there:
Motor coupler Many washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch I it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
Older washers have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all. The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem. If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace

    Drive motor






















    Many
    washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in
    one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a
    motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the
    other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
























    Drive pulleys






















    The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.























    Transmission






















    The transmission could have either of these problems:

    Hello there again
    If you suspect that the timer may not be working properly which i really dont see happening if it is only 2 years old any way try this
    ervicing the Timer

    Most
    washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls
    most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and
    emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this
    reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional
    service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when
    you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new
    timer yourself.

    Step 1:
    Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and
    the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access
    may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the
    wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the
    wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they
    usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to
    avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

    Step 2:
    To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power
    leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM
    should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple
    switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in
    turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more
    readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
    Step 3:
    To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new
    timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many
    wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one
    as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each
    corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are
    properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before
    removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the
    connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into
    place.
