Had one do this the other day but it would fill and agitate at the same time. Preasure switch was good. Intermittant agitate contact in timer was shorted. It started working correctly while troubleshooting. Quoted timer if it did it again. Seems to be working as they have not called back.

Bad timer.

But then you might already have been told that.

  Hmmm, the agitate contact (6) is already closed during fill. It doesn't agitate because there is no power to the timer until the pressure switch is in the full position. The only way it could agitate during fill is if one of the two pressure switch bypass contacts (2 or 2A) or spray contact (13) are closing when they shouldn't be.

I know sounds crazy. The tech sheet showed nothing for contact 2 (never closed as shown by the black squares on the timer chart)on the timer and i believe i was working on contact 10 when it started working. That was the only other one that supplied power to the satisfied side of the pressure switch with no water in it.

  It shows contact 2 closed during dry agitate, drain, spin and during 1/2 tub drain in perm press cool down. . It is the pressure switch bypass contact and is in series with the lid switch. That's why when you open the lid during drain/spin, the motor stops. Contact 10 supplies power to the pressure switch and causes fill when tub empty and agitate when tub full.
