Just received and installed the new timer. First use, it failed to drain the tub completely and just seemed to stop(timer too). My son accidentally let go of the washer lid where it slammed a bit and the washing machine finished its cycle. Do you think it might be the lid switch? I thought those either worked or they didn't. Can they fail mid-stream?
You also mentioned that if the motor stopped, it might be overheating. Since the timer stops too, is that likely to happen?
