I first replaced the timer, but that did not solve the problem (same lack of drain and spin). I then ordered a lid switch and a drain pump. Installing the timer had been pretty easy, but it was much more difficult to get to the lid switch and the pump. Once the lid switch and pump were installed, the washing machine worked perfectly again. I don't know for sure, but I think it was the lid switch that was the problem, because when we removed it, we found it to be cracked, so the pump was probably not needing to be replaced. Considering I purchased too many parts, this was not inexpensive, but if I'd called a repair service, they would have charged me for the diagnosis and then told me that it would cost too much to be worth repairing. I'm a happy customer!
