My whirlpool LSB6200pq has stopped in the middle of a cycle. I read another forum and and it pointed to a bad timer. Does it need to be drained first and then restarted? I have replaced the pump before because of a leak so I ruled that out. Could the drain hose be blocked? Thanks for your asssistance

It is possible that you have a timer issue since you say you are having to manually advance the timer. There is a small motor mounted on the timer that normally advances the timer and for some reason, possibly a burned contact, it is not advancing from that point. You might need to call in a repair tech. Hope this helps!
Your lid switch is likely faulty. If it does not click when you open and close the lid, it is bad. Access to the switch is gained by sliding a putty knife under each end cap to release clips and hinging the timer console up and back.
Hi, I'd like to help diagnose your problem but I may need a bit more information. Based on what you stated, I assume you have a top loading WHR washer with an electromechanical timer... the kind that you turn and it clicks. Anyway, you stated that the washer stopped in the middle of the cycle and that simply opening and closing the lid would fix it for a while. I suspect that your lid safety switch may be cracked and isn't being actuated by the plunger on the lid. If this is the case, the washer would function properly until it reached the point in the cycle where it should spin. Then it would stop at that point in the cycle. This makes sense that opening and closing the lid might "fix" it for a while. Also, if the switch got bad enough that opening / closing the lid didn't work anymore, you could rotate the timer dial just past the spin area and the cycle would continue. Have you noticed the clothes are wetter at the end of the cycle?
Anyway, check the lid switch first and then repost if you rule it out.
