So this is not pumping the water out at the very end of the cycle and going to spin? I'm trying to get a picture of what's going on, so this normally goes through the cycle but when it gets to the and is where your having the problem?

Okay it sounds like you have a motor control problem, this is the motor control.Replacing this should take care of your issue this controls the spin, it seems to be getting to that point and then stopping without spinning so the timer seems to be okay, the water control seems to be okay since it drains, so this is all that's left between the motor and the timer, you can order this at the following link if you wish , this company has a full moneyback guarantee even if the part turned out to be not the problem you can send it back even if you have installed it. Hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
