This particular model dishwasher is very simple and straight forward. If you replaced the timer and it's still stalling between the short wash and rinse cycle, something on the knob itself is sticking and not allowing the timer to advance. You'll want to remove the knob and the cam behind the knob and clean them well with soap and water. Then use Vasaline and rub it over the parts to make sure everything turns smoothly and then finally re-install the timer and try again.
