yes


 

So to clarify no matter what cycle you set the machine it sounds as if it has no power, But if you put it into the spin cycle the drum will spin?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

correct. the previous load we did , my wife put like 2 towels in and all the weight was on one side so it was causing the drum to hit the inside walls of the machine and it would cut off, until you opened and closed the lid again. then it would go for another few seconds and cut off. took me a few mins but i evened the weight out and it finished the load. but the next load is not working at all now.

Ok sounds to me like the timer has suffered some damage or a wire has come loose, If the machine was not spinning then I would say something different, May have some bad contacts because the motor was drawing too much current.

how easy is it to replace a timer. and how much does a new one cost?


 

The new timer would be around $120 - $130 Jason depending on where you get it, It's not too difficult to install, The timer should come with full instructions.
