Half of the time at the end of the Rinse Cycle, some combination of the 3 things (drain, spin, spray) that are supposed to happen do not. I thought it might be the timer contacts, but I am just guessing.

The pump, spin and agitate work correctly during the wash stages - the random problems are isolated to the end of the rinse stage.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Normal operation:
1) Agitates . . . . then
2) maybe pauses, maybe soaks . . . . then
3) Pumps out . . . . then
4) after Pump-out, Timer pauses the Washer Motor for a few seconds (can be simulated by lifting the Lid) . . . then
5) Spin starts

Thanks for the reply. It's at steps 3, 4 and 5 that are not working correctly.
Sometimes in drains, pauses, spins, sprays and continues to spin out the clothes as it should.

Half the time though the timer moves as it should, but steps 3-5 do not happen correctly.
  • Sometimes it won't drain, spin or spray, but makes noise like it is doing something.
  • Sometimes it will drain, but not spin or spray.
  • Sometimes it will drain and spin, but not spray.
As I have watched a number of washes now, the wash part works without fail - it is isolated to the end of the rinse cycle.

In my research, it appears there are 3 possibilities (timer-$130, lid switch-$15, motor-$180). How to narrow this down to the right solution?

Now that I have said that about the noise and you called me on it, let me step that statement back. The noise is the pump draining in scenario 2.
The scenarios should have read like this:
  • Sometimes it won't drain, spin or spray.
  • Sometimes it will drain, but not spin or spray.
  • Sometimes it will drain and spin, but not spray.
