I have been working on this Kenmore for some time. I finally broke down and bought a timer for it. Originally, the washer would not spin in delicate. If I shut off the timer and spun the knob back around to the delicate spin, it would spin. So I ordered a timer (a used one). No luck. Any input, guys? All other cycles work well.

Start a delicate wash cycle and when it gets to the spin cycle unplug the machine. Disconnect the timer connector. Get your pin numbers from the sticker on the timer and check for continuity between T16 - T24.

Check these two wires in the wire harness between the timer connector and the motor connector for continuity:
Black/Red wire T15 (timer) -M7 (motor).
Gray wire T24 (timer) -M2 (motor).
