Machine awaits for water temperature to rise but it never happens and that's why it "wont stop it just keeps going and going". It happens because the water heater is either dead or one of the two cables powering it are corroded or have fallen off from heater.

If you're experienced DIY guy than need to check if the both cables are properly attached if so than you need to test if the current goes trough the heater. If not than it needs to be replaced. If you're not DIY than call the repairman since messing with it can be dangerous.

Washer stops during normal wash cycle for a minute or more, and then continues. Would replacing the timer fix it?

If it actually goes on and finishes the cycle and that really bothers you replace it. If not leave it alone and allow a little more time to complete its cycle. The lid switch only keeps the spin cycle from going with the top open.

Bosch washing machine - electronic timer goes down to 1 minute remaining and stays there. Washing liquid has been drained from drawer, however, fabric softener is still there. We have resorted to stopping...

Check if drain filter is clear and drain pump is working properly. Also remove soap conditioner tray and check if you have black residue inside the soap/conditioner dispenser. Sometimes this can prevent water from entering the conditioner tray.

I have a timer control problem with a LSR5233EQ0. I need to press down on the timer knob to keep the machine working. It will agitate but with stop when it goes to spin.

Possible that the timer contacts are not giving connectivity when it moves forward into the cycle and so there is no control to the motor drive causing it act irregularly.
The suspect seems to be the timer module.

Doesnt go through programs

sounds like you have a bad timer or lid switch. does it finish a cycle but not advance or does it just keep washing or does it wash then stop and get stuck? if it just keeps doing one cycle like wash wash wash you would have a bad timer. if it washes then stops and gets stuck you have a bad lid switch. But then again if you had a bad lid switch it would never spin. What is the brand name of this washer?

Keeps filling during wash cycle

If the machine des not stop filling and cycle hang in position, then it is a faulty water level switch.

If the machine does not stop filling , and the cycle goes on, then test that the inlet valve is not stuck in open position, if the inlet valve is OK, replace the timer control assembly.

Gets stuck on timer and wont count down

We had a similar situation with our LG washer. It was not a timer problem.
The machine was not entering the spin cycle and was just stuck in limbo. A sensor or something was not being satisfied and allowing the progression to the next cycle. Our problem had to do with the drain line; it seemed as if it was air locked?? After lowering the drain line height (to reduce the head pressure), and manually draining some water out of the drainage cap (where the strainer is located) onto the floor, the sensor became satisfied and the machine completed its cycles properly.

What told me that it was not a timer issue was the fact that on different wash settings (normal, heavy, quick cycle), the machine timer would get stuck at different countdown points (22mins, 12mins, etc.).
