I have to manually advance my washer through the cycles. It seems to function in all respects fill, wash, drain, spin. I replaced the part #30 (knob). I found on your site that the "knob assembly" could be the problem. Could it be the timer? I can hear the clock working but the washer still does not advance. This unit has been unused for a few years. Can the timer be lubricated? I see in the forum that the pump might be clogged, the washer seems to drain OK. Should it still be checked? Thank you for your advise. Bob
ANSWER Hi Robert. Clearing the pump allows proper drain so essentially the pressure switch gets satisfied to allow the high speed spin to occur if the door latch stays in a lock position (safety). Timers are not lubricated . During assy, they may have a minute dab of grease on only mechanical pivot points. Since high voltage passes inside the cams, it will create a fire inside if any lubrication is involved. Possibly the timer had damage right b/4 not being in use for awhile ? Timer part # 134014700. Thank You.
