If the washer is coming on and off without you touching the knob, either the motor is overheating, or the timer has a bad contact inside. You would need to test power to the motor and see if the power is cutting in and out. If the power is constant and the motor stops, you need to replace the motor. If the power cuts out, you need to replace the timer. Below is a link to both parts. CLICK HERE for timer CLICK HERE for motor We are on the honor system here.
