My washer timer I think is going bad, it fills, washes just fine however when the dial reaches the spin cycle the dial will keep turning but nothing happens. I have to manual turn the dial sometimes all the way around or maybe hit on another spin cycle that will start the spin. Is this the timer causing the issue?
ANSWER Hello. It sounds like you could have a timer issue. First check the lid switch. 12001908 There may be an intermittent contact inside the lid switch. When the contacts open, this indicates to the machine that the lid is open and the washer turns ‘OFF’. When checked, the switch appears to operate normally and ohms out correctly. To identify this condition, turn ‘ON’ the washer and set into agitation or spin. While washer is running, wiggle the wire harness and connector attached to the lid switch. If the contacts are “bad”, the washer will shut ‘OFF’. If the washer shuts ‘OFF’, replace the lid switch.
