Our washer is confused. It fills and agitates well. But, when it is time to drain and spin it switches back and forth between the two. It also will vary in spin speed. We've stopped it at this point and turned the timer to the next stage where it then spins at full speed but seems to spin forever! We've tried different various combinations of cycle and speed selections. I suspect the timer is failing. How would I best test this theory?:?

From what you are describing I not really sure of your problem  ....

How a GE washer works:

It goes into a drain first before it starts to spin  ....

Once it starts to spin  the pressure switch also plays a part in this cycle...

ex    it may start spinning but if the water level lifts up too high the unit will stall and start to drain again and when the pressure switch deactivates the unit will start to spin again and then it may stop again with the water level spining and reaching high again ....

 

However if the unit spins FOREVER  change the timer.....

Thank you for your response. I tested your suggestions.
In the 'Easy Care' cycle, I let it fill to 'extra small' load and begin washing, then I shortened the wash cycle. It began draining first and then started to spin. It quickly stopped spinning and began draining again. Then I moved the timer a little forward again to the spin between wash and rinse. It drained fine at this point and has spun now for 11 minutes and is showing no signs of stopping!

The replacement timer arrived today. Finally!! It took me about five minutes to switch old for new. So far, I've successfully washed two loads. Just to satisfy my own curiosity I took the old timer apart. It had spot welded itself in pins 23 & 24. Haven't looked up those pin assignments. I put the schematic back inside when I 'buttoned it up.' Now, this family of six can line up the wheelbarrows of laundry!!:P Thank you for providing the final suggestions that helped pinpoint the problem.:D You 'guys' are the best!
Becky....just call me Beagle.
