My washing washer doesn't complete it's cycle, If I slame the lid it does.
Answer Hello Larry, It sounds like you have a bad lid switch. This part should take care of your problem. Thanks.

My whirlpool washer stops towards the middle-end of the rinse cycle. It is full of water (will not drain) or advance to the spin cycle even if I manually change it. Is this the lid switch?
Answer Emilia, Yes, it could be the lid switch 8318084 at fault. The lid switch has to produce a "closed" circuit to the timer in order to reverse the motor direction and drain and spin the basket. The lid switch is a good place to start.
My Whirlpool washer will fill and agitate...it pauses like it's supposed to, but then it buzzes and stops. It won't advance to the rinse cycle. If I wait 15 minutes or so, sometimes I can manually turn it to rinse and it will drain and spin to complete the cycle.
This issue sounds like it would be caused by a sticking contact in the timer. After the agitation the unit would go into the drain, if the contact is stuck it will send power to both sides of the winding of the motor and will cause the motor to buzz and click off. By moving the timer it would allow the contact to free up and operate but sounds like a new timer is needed. The part number for the timer is 8577356.
