Yes, it's possible the timer increment could be bad, but that's not a common occurence.

You should have the voltage at the switch for 60 to 90 seconds, and a couple of minutes into the main wash cycle, is that how you tested the circuit and voltage ?

If you're sure the wires are OK, and with the new switch( I wouldn't expect that to be bad) then go with a new timer.

Thanks for allowing to assist you,
