I would almost bet your timer motor is bad. You will have to replace the timer which is not really a hard thing to do if you have some minor skills. I'm not sure but the timer probably costs around $100 bucks or so. Just guessing on that. Incidentally, the timer is the gizmo behing the knob you are turning to change the cycles.

Yes, you can fix this yourself very easy. You will need to replace the "timer". Here is the part you need to order. To install the timer, you will need to remove the back cover on the control panel and gain access to the timer. Then remove the knob from the timer and release the tab holding the timer in place. Slide the old timer out of the unit once the tab is released and unplug the wires going to it. Re-install with the new timer in reverse order.
I had this same /similar problem with my machine and found that the micro-computer board on the top rear near the cover of the machine are very prone to having bad electrical contacts on the board where the wire connectors go. The answer simply was to remove this board and add solder to each and every solder pad that goes to the connectors. The board is not bad (defective) just poor electrical connections.The repairman probably just wiggled the 1 with the issue and it worked for you for months as described! Perhaps you could get away with just disconnecting the electrical connectors and plugging them back in -it could buy you some more time before fixing it permanently with solder!
You may have a problem with your Temp Switch or the Sensor Thermistor. Very easy to check and fix depending on your technical ability. Both of these parts are connected off the Automatic Temperature Control Board.
