Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Thought the timer was at fault,however wasn`t fully convinced is was as the problem happened on all the other wash cycles.
This led me to checking the lid switch.Metering the wiring to it indicated the switch was not working.
After removing this lid switch, I noticed the plastic casing was coming slightly apart.So do not rely on `` the clicking sound``[ when opening and closing the lid] to indicate the switck is OK.
This casing is bound to fail with time and lid use and abuse [ held together at 3 points with very small plastic clipping points which fail, resulting with an internal spring pushing the casing apart so that you still get the ``clicking sound`` but the contacts not working] .
My solution was to use a plastic cable tie to pull the switch casing together and ``bing``the switch is working and the washer is back in service [ No need to buy a new switch ].

I would start with a timer replacement, since the motor circuit works for fill and agitate.
Question if you want to repair or replace washer, cost vs age, useage, etc. etc.
