Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

  1. Press and hold the Lock button until the light blinks (about 10 seconds).
  2. A single blink indicates that the timer is reset to 1-1/2 minutes.

  4. Repeat again for a 3-1/2 minute interval, etc., up to a maximum of four blinks and 4-1/2 minutes.

HOW DOES A MODEL 315P ICE MACHINE GO INTO HARVEST?


The ice machine has a HARVEST TIMER. You can adjust the harvest time, it comes from the factory for 3 minutes. You should not have to adjust it 3 minutes is plenty of time if every thing is working right. If the machine is operating making ice but not falling in storage bin then check these possible cause.
1. ICE may be stuck in the evaporator and the unit is " frozen up "
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Clean and sanitize.
Possible Cause: Harvest time set too short - timer needs adjustment.
2. Harvest timer bad: replace harvest timer.

My 8025 gets hung up on pins


Contact Uni-line for replacement clock motor
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#42000

Advantage 8025 mechanical timer that gives short time intervals from 1 minute to 27 minutes.

If you are using for septic tank pump, then you have 1 circuit, so you do not need the 8025 to control 3 circuits.

You can install digital timer (EH40 240Volt, or EH10 120Volt) and also get 1 minute intervals.

Gets stuck on timer and wont count down


We had a similar situation with our LG washer. It was not a timer problem.
The machine was not entering the spin cycle and was just stuck in limbo. A sensor or something was not being satisfied and allowing the progression to the next cycle. Our problem had to do with the drain line; it seemed as if it was air locked?? After lowering the drain line height (to reduce the head pressure), and manually draining some water out of the drainage cap (where the strainer is located) onto the floor, the sensor became satisfied and the machine completed its cycles properly.

What told me that it was not a timer issue was the fact that on different wash settings (normal, heavy, quick cycle), the machine timer would get stuck at different countdown points (22mins, 12mins, etc.).
