Our 10 year old washer wont do anything (silent...no movement)

Resolved Question:

Our 10 year old washer won't do anything (silent...no movement) in the was cycle. But if controls are moved to rinse or spin it seems to work fine. Any ideas on whether it should be repaired or replaced?

Sounds like it could be a timer problem. I cannot give a part number on the timer without having the model number. I would say to replace the timer because if it spins it rules out a motor or lid switch problem. Normally a timer is over a 100 dollars on retail cost. Hope this helps with your decision on to replace or repair it. Please remember to click accept. Thanks David
