My old Kenmore (Whirlpool) washer seems to work fine, but occasionally it seems to think the cycle is complete. It will stop, but it has not pumped out the water or completed the cycle. I'm guessing the timer is calling it a day, anything else to check before I pull this thing apart. Not sure it's worth spending 100+ on this machine if this is the case as it's certainly 25 yrs old, but I figure I at least owe it a look before I make a decision. Thanks for any help.

Mike

When the timers failed on those old Belt Drives, you could usually verify the fault by wiggling timer shaft while running and see it cut out

I have fiddled with the lid switch and thought it was OK, probably worth another look. Great tip on the timer shaft. Thx, will report back.

OK, switch seems good, solid click each time it is pushed, wiggling timer shaft does not start or stop machine. Currently machine stopped in mid cycle and will not run or drain tub, it simply makes a noise, I thought the belt might be slipping, but the noise is not the motor spinning. Some kind of electical noise, like a relay maybe. Any thoughts appreciated.

Sounds like the pump mignt be seizing up on you - when it quits like this, unplug machine and move belt by hand - watch pump pulley to see if it is moving with the belt, if not, it's new pump time ....
