When I load & starts the washer (white or color), the washer rotating timer would & washer to continues rotate & would not stop. Most of the time it stops when its about to rinse. I would manually move the time forward little by little to finish rinse & spin. Tried dropping a little oil, but problem persists. 1 time I left it & thinking it would stop anyway. It was still running after 3 hrs when I came back.

Re: Washer would not stop
There is a little motor that drive the timer and thats the problem, maybe you can find some tech to change the motor only, but if not, you may change the timer, any way is better to chage the timer for a new one...good luck

sounds like the final phase is not being registered on the timer or the computer chip may need to have a service tech diagnose but it isn't a complex problem just an annoying one, the final phase is a cool down cycle and also you may need to see if you have the settings for cotton clothes, the dryer will tumble them so as not to let them wrinkle. hope this helps
The wheel on the botton has a plastic white insert that will lift or retract the gear stem. Depending on the ratation of the motor this will pull or retact that stem. During spin cysle, the wheel rotates CCW and pulls that stem out(towards the floor). This action should disengage the brake and also start rotating the tum. Remove power, remove the belt and rotate wheel manually and see if the empty tub spins. If not, remove the wheel and take care to not drop all the washers and bearings. Once removed take some vice grips and yank on that gear stem until the brake mechanisn is released. That stem should only need to move a few mm maybe 5-10. Once fully reassembled if this continues to happen, get a new pully assembly.
Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer.
Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels
around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times
again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.
If you say this only happens on the Colors and Whites cycle i dont see what the lid switch or balance sensor (if your washer has one) would have to do with it. It does seem like it has something to do with the timer,,, it really sounds like maybe the (Colors & Whites) section of the timer is malfunctioning. Inside the timer, there are a series of gears and switches, and by slamming the lid, or tapping on the timer control knob,,, it could maybe help the damaged part of the gear move, temporarily "fixing" the problem
washer think there water over fill to clear this u need ruin a diagnostic test. think of timer knob light a clock straight up being at 12 oclock an one click at 1oclock to enter the test first rotate knob to any postion except postion 6 staight down press start and fs button at same time wait 3 seconds an rotate knob to to postion 6 wait 3 second then release both button , all light should blink . you should now be in test , rotate knob to various postion to test wash cycle an rinse an spin postion 9 an 10 are the waster valve onces the test finish tun the knob to another postion to turn test off an unplug washer an plug bach in this should clear it . if still have a porblem call a applince service ok
UC means the washer cannot spin. There's a bulletin out this.
The clutch is likely the cause of these error codes, preventing the unit from spinning freely. A new clutch was introduced in production in March 2005 to improve performance and should reduce these error codes.
1. Visual verification can be made of a malfunctioning clutch by observing the lifter operation in spin. The lifters will rotate up to one complete rotation just prior to the tub starting to spin counter clockwise. Should the lifters continue to rotate while the tub spins, examination of the clutch will be necessary.
2. Inspect the 14 wire plug in the control console for loose red\white- pink- blue\white from the P3 connector. Also inspect the wires and connection point on the Tub Displacement Sensor for corrosion. Measure from PK to Wh/Bu at the P3 connector. The voltage should be approximately 1.5vdc when the tub is centered, 3vdc when the tub is pushed to the right rear of the cabinet and 0vdc to the left front. Any variances of these voltages, the 14 pin harness connection, tub displacement sensor, and sensor connector should be checked.
Manually open the timer switch component rotate the knob forward and it will work. / rotate inline w/water fill full keep near the timer you can hear the timer running or not / if not the small motor of timer need to replace availqble in appliance service center,.
