Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your issues today. Please give me a minute to review your question.
So the timer isn't moving really at all and now it does it all of the time? Does it do this on all cycles?
Also do you have access to a voltmeter at all?
I have attached a copy of the wiring diagram so hopefully you can see it a little bigger, what I would like you to check is on the two black wires I have circled coming from the timer motor if you have 120v going to that motor when you have it washing. You do have to be kind of careful so you don't get shocked but those are the ones coming from the timer to turn that motor. It is likely that it will be in that timer if you aren't having to mess with the lid switch or anything when you manually turn the timer on the unit.
There aren't any sort of special secrets to get it working back again, generally what happens is either the timer motor fails to turn properly or on the inside of the timer the tines that make it go through things wear out to the point that it won't turn either. If it goes through the cycles correctly without any other issues and the agitate, drain, and spin functions all work when you go through them manually then the timer would have to be replaced unfortunately. The only other real thing that would be an issue is the lid switch but then it would do everything but spin out without issue and the timer would still move if that were the case.
