Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore washer model number 417.40042990 and It runs great up until it almost reaches the final spin mode.If you look at the timer/selector dial, it freezes at approx.22 min.pass the hour and the final spin mode starts at approx.25 min. pass the hour.(Hope I' making sense) It does the same thing in the perm. press and delicate cycles also.I assumed (1st. mistake) that the timer had a worn gear or something inside and replaced it. $150.00 plus later and wah-lah, same thing.I have tried turning off the EXTRA RINSE switch,using only cold water wash/rinse,unpluging the power supply and all to no avail. I have also tried to open and close the dispenser tray (fabric softener still has not dispensed) and no changes. BUT if I push in the knob and turn it ever so slightly, pull it back out, the washer continues and finishes just like normal. Any ideas? Thanks Tim

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.

It does sound like a mechanical problem, but probably deeper in the mechanism than the timer dial itself.
