Washer won’t advance past wash cycle

Kenmore Series 500 topload Washer

Washer will not advance past the wash cycle. Will not go through the rinse and spin cycles. It does drain. When it stops at the wash cycle, we then try to set it to rinse and spin and the rinse and spin setting doesn’t work. Turning it to the drain and spin is just fine, it just seems to be a problem with the rinse cycle.

And, actually, there are times that it will complete a full cycle, it isn’t often, but on occasion it’s does a complete cycle by itself.

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. ... Under the hole is a switch that allows the timer to advance and the washer to spin only when the lid is down.

I was told by the sears online chat that my washer does not have a timer, but rather just a control panel, that is a $300 fix .

What are your thoughts about a kid switch issue?

Well, you could give us your model number. In case you might not have recognized it as a timer, here's how to replace it:

The timer issue is for models previous to 2012.. The 500 series I believe is a 2016 model VMW type washer.. here is a link where you can check for error codes and go to the Sears website and check for their error codes for VMW washers and under the code explanation it would give you a part name that could fix your problem and would even give you a link to do it your self repair. Hopefully this works.
