Using the Super wash for 14 minutes of wash cycle -

Washer fills and then does nothing.  Timer moves on but no agitation except the owner.

A knuckle whack in the timer area and it starts to agitate like it should and goes for a while and then takes a break.  The cycle finishes but of course the clothes barely got washed.

 

Me thinks it is a timer issue as it is the original one but I wanted to see if any other ideas before I dropped some $ on a new timer.

when it fails, does the Washer Motor hum or make any noise ?

could be a bad Timer

OR

a bad Speed (Cycle) Switch

Next time, try just turning the Timer slowly ...

OR change the Speed (Cycle) setting ..

The speed switch doesn't do anything to help or cause the issue.  The motor stops completely when this issue occurs - no noise or hum.

 

It also seems the Permanent Press cycle doesn't do it or at least as bad.  Perhaps a different set of contacts that haven't been burned out?  We hardly ever use the Perm Press cycle so that would explain.

sounds like a bad Timer,

unless the Timer connector is loose ..

I'll check it but the timer connectors but the timer assembly seems like the culprit.  I presume there is no reasonable way to take it apart and clean up things inside?

I'm not sure on that Timer model,

maybe another user is more familiar

Timer push/pull start contact is bad.  When it acts up put upward pressure on the timer shaft.  It'll probably start until shaft is released.  Will need to replace timer as an assembly.
