Question about Washing Machines
Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer. Timers don't often fail, but if every other part of the washer seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Timers can't be repaired, if yours is defective, you’ll have to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Well first of all you can check timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
You may please follow the steps below to know how to replace timer -
1. Disconnect the power to the washing machine.
2. Remove the timer knob from the control panel by pulling it off the shaft with your fingers.
3. Remove the screws that connect the front of the control panel to the back of the panel using a screwdriver. Rotate the front control panel forward, revealing the switches and wiring inside.
4. Remove the screws that hold the timer to the control panel, using a screwdriver. Disconnect the wiring harness to the timer by pressing in on the plastic tab and pulling it apart.
5. Press the plastic mounting tab at the bottom of the timer down to release the timer from the control panel. Insert the new timer on the control panel by snapping the plastic mounting tab into place.
6. Connect the wiring harness by pushing it into place on the timer until it snaps in. Attach the mounting screws with a screwdriver.
7. Turn the front control panel back over and reconnect it to the rear by attaching the screws. Slide the timer control knob back onto the timer shaft. done!!

Hi, since your washer is a "belt" drive, I'd suggest checking to see if perhaps the belt is slipping. While you're checking that, make a note of "oil" sprayed around the cabinet on the belt, pulley's etc. These generation GE units are known for tranny leakage/failures. If you're able to remove the front panel from the cabinet, you'll get a much more thorough look at your drive & basket/tub assembly. Just push in the 2 clips on top of the front panel on both sides with a puddy knife or narrow flat screw driver, and pull forward. The bottom just hinges on 2 hangers and the front comes right off. That's a start for now, hope it's a help. Let me know. Good Luck :)
