Default washer timer hangs
Model Number: la5500xmw0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Dial goes thru cycles fine until it hits one cycle (I think drain because water is sitting.)
The dial stops (machine quits running) and dial must be pulled out, turned a little, pushed back in and then machine continues fine. Should I replace timer ($93) [or could it be a solenoid or something else wrong?]
Also, this is getting more often and happening on other settings (reg & perm press)

Thank you, sir. Now my wife asks, "The machine is 25 years old. Is it worth it to fix the timer for $100 or just get a new machine?" Do you agree? How much does a similar replacement machine now cost??

Never mind reply.
1. I found a new 660970 timer on ***** for $25 that's worth a try for a few more years.
2. Feb '08 Consumer Reports page 47 lists a top loader GE for $480 as a Best Buy.

If they think that that GE is the best buy, they are on drugs!!!!!!! I wouldn't buy a GE washer with your money. Take that from a 30 years service tech. Tom ********************************************
