I have a Whirlpool washer, LSR8433KQ1, that, after filled with water at the rinse cycle, stalls. It doesn't matter what setting. It will stall for 15-60 minutes then continues. Is this the timer? I've read some blogs that state it could be the switch.

  Could be an intermittent lid switch. The lid switch on this model is prone to coming apart. Open the control panel and jump it out for testing. Also a possible water level switch problem. When it is stalled, will it drain/spin if you advance the timer manually to drain/spin?

To answer your question, it will not do anything when I move the control knob to any other function. As a matter of fact, I just went to check that when I found my washer now stalled, filled with water at the wash cycle. It has never done that before. I think we're progressing to the point of unusable!

  Did you try jumping out the lid switch? Don't be too quick to condemn the machine. Could be something very simple. After washer fills and stops, does the timer advance on it's own? How about drain/spin, does timer advance? If not, this suggests an open neutral which is through the lid switch, motor overload switch and motor connection. If jumping out the lid switch does not solve the problem, remove the cabinet and check connections at motor and motor thermal overload switch.

The timer advances on it's own whenever it feels like it! I didn't try jumping the lid switch yet. I'm not sure I have the proper stuff to pull that off.
