Check with your appliance parts repair people in your area.
You should find no one will touch the electronic control panel. Usually, the time it takes and the cost for diagnostics will negate any profit for the business.
Same as why many cars must go back to the dealer for electronics. Most of your local repair people will just replace the board.
God bless your efforts.

SOURCE: Machine will run through entire cycle and will not

I had a similar problem and found out the "latch" on the washer door broke off. The machine won't run in spin cycle if the door is"open", but it would run through the wash cycle.

SOURCE: washing machine circular timer switch

If you are able to advance the timer and get the machine to run and finish the cycle, then yes the timer is your most likely culprit, and yes the timer motor and timer are all one piece.
However if it does not complete the cycle and you are unable to drain the water out, your problem could be with the lid switch assembly, not the timer. Check the switch by looking for a tab on the right side of the lid that would (when the lid is closed) contact the switch mounted under the top of the cabinet. you should hear an audible click when the switch is depressed.
If you find it is the switch, please let me know and I will give you instructions on how to replace it.
Good luck!

Does not want to drain the water after washing circle


Hi.

Start checking the drain hose at the back, and the hose attached to the drain pump, located at the bottom of the appliance. After that access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch. Also check the lid is closing well. Those are the only easy fixes.

The first parts to check are door latch and drain system.

The timer performs an additional check on the door latch before advancing to spin. The door switch it is tested by jumping its contacts, or by reading impedance to check if the switch is opening and closing the circuit (you will need a multimeter).

About the drain system,
if the machine does not drain, then the cycle will not advance to spin.

The electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle. If there is a drain problem, then the machine will not spin.


The first step will be accessing the drain pump.


Kenmore top loaders' washer pump is accessed from the bottom side of the appliance.
Get ready to collect the water that will come from inside the tub.

Check also the drain hose at the back. Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.

If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.

Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.

Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.

WASHER WILL WASH ON ALL CYCLES, BUT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN ON EITHER CYCLE


If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!

Hope this helps.

Hello I have a Maytag Washer Model A512 The machine goes through a regular cycle OK - However, it DOES drains the water out during the rinse cycle, but does NOT drain the water out during the spin...


The timer will always advance to the next program if the machine does not fully drain. There is ALWAYS a spin when draining the water out, there is only one pump and one motor. The waterlogged laundry maybe telling the timer that there is still water in the tub. Put the machine on "Spin" and cheat the lid switch into thinking that the lid is closed. Use a clothes peg or wide ended screwdriver and see if there really is a spin....

Will not spin and empty


The problem more than likely if the motor coupling, It is around $20.00 US and is fairly easy to change, repair with service call should be around $100.00. You might also want to check the lid switch, if the switch is not working the machine will wash, but not spin or drain. If the washer is working OK on wash and the agitator is turning OK but when it gets to the spin and drain cycle it just quits, then the lid switch is probably the culprit. I can't rule out the timer yet, does it work in other cycles but still not spin or drain? If not then the timer might be the problem, but if it does but still not spinning, back to the lid switch!

No spin cycle or drain


Ok, check the following before you replace the timer. in most cases, the washer will not spin if there is a drainage issue. please check the following below and, if everything concerning the drain assembly checks out ok, then , replace the timer.


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Whirlpool washer will not drain


Well i think you should be looking in the filter? Or in the pump. These are the only thiongs that will stop it from draining or spinning! The machine will not spin if it has water in it. It will go into spin inhibit to protect the machine. Check for lost items and then look at pump/filter if nothing then replace the pump then you will be ok.

Kenmore Model 80 get stuck after agitate and will not spin out


I have seen this on the same model recently, try lifting the lid during the neutral drain and reclose, if it engages spin then. then most likely your timer is bad too. The timer after two minutes of "neutral drain" will stop the motor (same effect as lid sw) then restart after a pause with spin/drain. this pause shifts the transmission to its next cycle which is spin. I found burned contacts in timer. Your timer list price is over $100 but easy to replace
