  It's not the timer motor that pauses, it's the drive motor. The timer motor cannot pause at any time during the cycle. During agitate, power to the timer motor is through the pressure switch. Just before drain/spin, the pressure switch bypass contacts come into play to provide power to timer motor after drain (pressure switch empty position). Seems like you got a couple of bad timers or the wrong timer. Should be part number 22004189
