Anyone a appliance repairman?

I own a Kenmore HE clothes washer mod# 417.43142200. When I wash in the Reg Permanent Press/ Eco Cycle, the washer will not cycle past the rinse mode unless I shut it off, turn the knob a "hair" and turn it back on. It then continues and finishes the load. I believe this means the timer is bad, but don't want to just throw parts at it. It only happens on that Eco Cycle wash option. All other options ie Heavy dutie, gentle, short wash etc.... work just fine. It adds water for the rinse cycle, bumps it out then re adds water to the rinse cycle, bumps it out etc........Does this sound like a problem with the timer?. I can get a timer for $113 from Sears and the repair manual I can find online to help with the fix.

...only for the seriously quick!!!

Yo, Jim
You are correct. A bad timer is the common cause here. You see, the contacts are worn or missing around the dial in the spot where the washer cycle stops. When you advance or retard the psotion of the dial, you're back onto the contacts.
cause: you guys have "zipped" through the dial to the desired wash location one too many times causing a worn or missing (lifted pad/contact) on Timer PCB.

Try these guys for parts in Waukegan (on Grand Ave), They stock alot of parts.

Good Luck,

Good appliance parts drawings

Jim,
Here's the website I use to get an idea of how to disassemble appliances, drawings, parts and part#'s, and a forum to ask questions. Just enter your appliance type and model #
