First, it's a GE washer/dryer combo.  The Model Number is WSM2420TBAWW.

 

At first, it wouldn't switch from cycle to cycle.  The dial would move a little when you first cut it on after it filled with water and began agitating, but then the dial would stop moving and the washer would continue in that cycle. Then you would move the dial forward to go to spin and rinse and spin again. In the past few days though, it won't change cycles even after moving the dial.

 

From trying to read through the forums, I think it might be the timer. . .? but i'm not certain.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

I did figure out how to fix my freeze from these forums, so I feel like I'm already ahead!

Thanks for the help.  I will test it, hopefully today.  If i'm getting power there, you think it's the timer?  If i'm not, what could the issue be then?

The timer is getting power.  So with all of that, I'm guessing the timer is just bad?
