Dave we have a LSR7233B, which washes just fine, but on one of the cycles it does not spin or drain. The timed cycle it seems to work just fine. We have checked the lid switch, but it appears to be fine. Any suggestions? Bill Horn

If the washer spins and drains like normal on one cycle (timed cycle) but won't work on another cycle, this can only be caused by a bad timer. There is a contact inside the timer that is not make a good connection and the entire timer would need to be ordered and replaced to get the washer working properly again. Below is a link to the part.
