Strangest thing, the washer control will rotate fine as it goes through the cycle, but halts on the final spin and won't advance through, any one have a fix?

Hi,

Does is spin fine where the timer halts? If so, that indicates your timer contact is bad at that spot and will not advance.

Here's the timer for your model you can order:
WH12X10527 Timer Washer

That's were I started, I changed the timer, thinking the same thing, but the no change in it's behavior. I've tested the motor extensively, twice, but found no errors. I really hate GE

That is odd, so is it spinning but the timer is not advancing?

the timer will advance through the whole wash cycle, but on the final spin, the timer stops and the washer stays in the spin cycle and continues to spin, for hours, till it gets turned off manually.

That is very odd, the new timer should've fixed it, because it only happens at that one spot in that one cycle? On other spin cycles it advances?

Well, It wouldn't be the first time I got a bum GE part. But if bigbuck could post a tech sheet, that might be helpful. sometimes you can do everything right and still loose. I don't like to loose.
