Advance the timer manually and see if the next cycle works. Timers
are notorious for dying. Our wash machine has a bad timer right now.
We have not had the money for a new one and the timers cost half the
price of a new machine, so we just advance it manually and it does the
laundry just fine. It's a pain in the ass, but it cleans the laundry.
I still want to see if I can get a new motor for the timer. Those
small motors seem to be the part that mainly dies. I think we have
had 4 machines with bad timers over the years. Most of them were
junky machines but the one we have now is a good machine except for
the timer. With any luck, I hope to find an identical machine that is
a junker, and still has a good timer. A local appliance store has
piles of junkers, and are glad to give them away for free because it
cost them to dispose of these junkers. They said they would call me
if they get a similar model.
Did you try what Robert suggested? I bought a refurbished Roper washer and
when I got it home It would fill up and do nothing more. I advanced the
timer and it still did nothing. I called the appliance shop I bought it from
and they came out and had it fixed in 10 minutes. Turns out, when they had
it a part to put the new transmission in it, they forgot to plug the
connector in for the lid switch. Just another thought.
