How's it going? When I fill my washer, it won't do anything. I tried advancing the timer and nothing happened, but when I switched the load size from large to medium, it worked. Not sure if I have a bad timer or is there something else going on?   Thanks for your help.

I would start by suspecting the fill level switch, this gives power to the timer when it is satisfied the washer is full of water.

ok, thanks. A quick add-on note. when the washer first started to act up, it would not go into the final spin. you would have to turn the timer a couple of clicks, then it would go. is the pressure switch involved in the operation at that time?      thanks
