My washer just decided to stop cycling through the different cycles. I watched a few videos on how to replace the timer. Would I be correct in saying that the timer is bad? I didn't open up the timer to view the inside of it.
Answer Hello Iceberg,
You will need to do some troubleshooting before replacing the timer. You see, certain things have to happen before the timer motor is energized so it can advance in the cycle. You should pull the tech sheet and remove the main front of the unit. The green LED under the motor board cover will be flashing. Count the number of flashes and this will normally point you to the troubled component by using the scale on the tech sheet. The tech sheet will be inside the control panel.

Answer Hello Collis. The numbers you provided are manufacturer numbers and do not correspond the actual part numbers. In order to find the correct timer we would need the model number of the appliance. If you could get the model number and post a new question with that info we will find the correct timer.
How do you know if the timer of the washer is gone?

My GE washer, model # WLSR2000G3WW started acting weird over the weekend. As soon as I start the wash cycle, it goes straight to the spin cycle. It won't fill up with water or do any of the wash cycle steps, it just starts spinning dry. So I opened up the control panel and cleaned all the parts, particularly the timer. I unplugged the timer and dust it off and closed the control panel back up. When I started the washing cycle, it started filling up with water but my joy wash short lived because after that process was done and after a few seconds pause, the machine drained the water right awy rather than performing the was cycle. After that, I didn't mess with it anymore, I just thought that the timer might be bad. Could that be the problem? If so, would be worth trying to repair the timer?
Yes with the description of the problem it sounds like the contacts inside the timer are stuck and the timer would need to be replaced. Timer part number WH12X10338.
My washer is not agitating fills up with water then I can manually turn it to spin cycle and its works is it the switch
Answer Hello Dedric,
This sounds like there is something in the circuit preventing the voltage from passing to the timer motor to advance the timer. It could be in the timer but without looking at the wiring diagram, I would be afraid to guess and have you order the wrong part.
