On regular, my water level fills up fine and it runs through until it hits the rinse cycle. It stops and the timer just stays in the same spot even after awhile. I push in the knob and turn it back to the same spot and pull the knob to get it started. This may take as much as 10 tries. Sometimes I would put it a bit past the part it stopped and it might run again. After 5-10 minutes, it stops before before the spin cycle. I push the knob in and repeat the process. I'm not sure if it is a timer problem or a lid. The lid seems to be working fine and i can push down on the lid switch. Do you think it's a timer problem?

ANSWER Anthony, Before you replace the timer, you should access, and check the lid switch and wiring. You may have a loose wire connection or intermttent contact inside the switch. You may also want to disconnect the air tube from the water levels switch and blow into the hose, to clear any debris in the tube, that may be causing the switch to operate improperly. Thanks
