The wiring diagram reveals all. The only component that can stall the timer is the boost thermostat-- it's either bad or the heating element is open so the thermostat never closes.

Just had a Frigidaire this weekend. Same type of complaint, ran the machine, all appeared to be working normally. Finally after running thru more than half the cycle everything working timer advancing, next thing I know timer not advancing no matter where I put it.
Ohm'ed motor -- showed open. Put it in the freezer for a few minutes and it's working again. (NOTE: It is so crazy having to sell the customer a $100 timer when if the companies would just sell the timer motors as a seperate part things would actually be economical to repair. I've never been able to figure that out, the motors are a seperate detachable part of the timer but not available execpt for some of the Maytag washers and G.E. - but of oourse with G.E. just the motor is as much as a new timer almost.)
