I replaced the timer and the first cycle it went into final spin, the second it did the same thing as old timer...finished with two rinses and no final spin.  Final Spin works fine on the delicate cycle.  The door locks and the light comes on so no door issue.  I thought for sure it was the timer because all you have to do is turn the dial around to final spin and it goes right into the spin.  Any thoughts?

Would the door switch be the issue if you can restart the load on final spin without opening the door?

Well the door switch not only locks the door but it tells the control it is locked.
All I am sayin is it might be lockin but it ain't sayin. LOL

when in the Regular Cycle, during "Spin", and the Door is locked ....

IS the Door actually locked ?

Then un-plug Washer from Wall Outlet.

Can you open the Door right away, or only after a few minutes ?

I vote for a spin control board, located the right rear of the machine at the bottom.

Can I get a part number for that board.

The door is locked and you cannot open it until like a minute or so after the light goes out.  My neighbor's has the same issue so now I have two to fix.

Thanks
Jay
