Can I buy just the contact pack for the washer instead of buying the whole timer?
I'm sorry for the late update. My issue turned out to be the speed control selector switch. Somehow, playing with the lid and controls would make contact inside the switch. Pushing on the knob of the speed control made the connection. I ended up purchasing a new washer last year- what a mistake.

It is a Belt Drive machine... not a direct drive. Does this change things?

and BTW... I cant open and close lid since it stays locked throughout whole wash cycle. So any other ideas...

and lastly... it is a 2014 Whirpool New style Belt drive.

Your machine has a neutral drain, meaning when it starts to drain the transmission shifts into neutral so it is not trying to turn the tub while it is full of water.

The timer needs to pause the motor after the drain is complete. This causes the transmission to shift into spin. If the motor does not pause, no shift. So the timer is not doing its "pause" job, and when you open and close the lid you are doing the pause job for it. That is why it starts spinning after you do that.

So replacing the timer should fix your problem.

My warranty company is sending an appliance dude back out...I'll remember to post whatever he tells me but I'd take it with a grain of salt considering he either 1.) he put it back together incorrectly. or 2.) failed to test thoroughly.
