Washer won't cycle

We have a Kenmore 80 Series washer, and it will not move through the cycles. I have to manually move the dial through the cycles. I believe we had a power surge that caused this problem as other electronic devices were affected. We have no other issues with it. We asked a washer repair shop for a suggestion, and he suggested cleaning the water lines, but that it was probably not the timer. We did clean the water lines, but to no avail. Could it be the timer?

Sarah, it sure could be the timer. If you start a cycle, it fills, starts agitating but the timer does not advance after that, it's probabley the timer motor. You want to make sure that this is happening on all cycles and cycle speeds. Have someone pull off the consol end caps, (they just pull off) remove the two screws and flip the consol up. Make sure the harness to the timer is seated. The part number for your timer is. 8557393. Catriver..post back.
