I just moved into a new house, and after a year and a half in storage, my washer washed one load of clothes fine, but now is stopping at ramdom times during the cycle. I'm wondering if it's a timer issue, and lid-loc switch, or if not leveling the machine when I moved it in (yeah, I know, it's on my to-do list for today....) could be causing it to think the load is unbalanced and stop. If I pull the knob out and push it back in, wherever it is in the cycle, it starts right back up, so I'm kinda leaning towards the not-level thing in hopes I can get out of this cheap.


See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.

It is probably the timer, with the contact corroding over time. You can disconnect the timer and clean the contacts with good contact cleaner. I would also twirl the timer a lot to maybe dislodge some gunk that may have settled in the timer.

Check the lid switch, but I think at the end of the day the timer is your problem.
