LarryC:
Washer seem to start ok, but when it get to the rinse cycle it stops on the first number 1.
The wife presses the start and it goes until it get to the next number 2 and stops again. She does it again for each number until it gets the finish.

Seem to wash ok and drain, but the bleach and softener do not empty.

I replaced the control board in 2001 due to a power line surge or brown out.
Hope it is not time for a new one  ???

Hi LarryC

The washer uses cold water for the rinse cycle.
Check the screens inside the water fill valve in back of the washer to see if they are plugged up. Maybe just the cold water one is plugged, but now is a good time to check them both.

Just turn the water off and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Take a look inside the valve and you will see the screen. This screen can just be pulled out and cleaned up.

Let me know what you find there...

LarryC:
Cold and hot water come in ok....

AJ:
Then take a good look at both the motor control board and the control board on top behind the timer for damage.

Use a good flashlight and look good when checking the motor control board on the bottom of the washer.

LarryC:
Look like the timer stalls at the rinse time and if I am reading the repairmbook right the controller board drop the power if the timer does not move.
here what in print:
There are conditions under which the machine control will shut the cycle down if the
timer does not advance.
- During Extra Wash/Prewash: If the timer inputs do not change away from Prewash
Tumble for 15 minutes, the machine control will open the line relay.
- During Main Wash: If the timer inputs do not change for 29 minutes, the machine
control will open the line relay.
- During any increment when the machine control energizes the timer motor until it
sees the timer inputs change: If the timer inputs do not change for 5 minutes with the
timer motor continuously energized, the machine control will open the line relay.
These varying delays are to allow the washer to progress through several increments
where the timer inputs normally do not change. In these cases, the machine control
energizes the timer motor for 30 seconds, which is its advance time. It does not look for
a timer input change.
