My Whirlpool Washing starts and then stops. It will run for

Resolved Question:

My Whirlpool Washing starts and then stops. It will run for 30 seconds then stop. I finally had to take the clothes out and wash them by hand.
I had a repairman look at it and he says it appears to be the time. It will cost $340 to replace it. He says that the cycle are off for instance when it was spinning it was filling up.
I just want to know is this correct. I have read some things on the internet and it could possible b the motor or the console. I don't want to spend all this money and find out that it's something else so my question is. from what I've described do you think it's the timer? Or is it too much up in the air to conclude? I'm thinking I should by a new washing machine.

this is a mechanical timer there is NO WAY the operations can be off unless the timer knob and dial have been replaced .

The only way it could be the console is if it was replaced from another model .

I would think you would have known if it was replaced .

and when it shuts off can you get it to come right back on ?

And will it run longer then the 30 seconds while filling up ,when the motor is not running?

No it comes back on in its own time. Just now it was spinning while water was coming in lot the chamber.
Now it is on the rinse cycle and it stopped again

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yea
