First thought, dead/bad spot in the timer....but still confused as too why med and above water setting fail and not below a med setting!!
Fills ok, water stops.
Agitates ok, agitation stops.
Pause, which is normal.
Drain/pump out should occur but washer starts to fill with water again ontop of the soapy water already there and over fills.
Push in timer knob and the filling water stops.
Manually move the timer a bit and the drain pump kicks in ( should mean the drain pump and hoses are ok ) and the washer continues through the cycle ok and drains/spins.
At first glance....I'd still try a timer...but If *I* guess wrong I can return the timer, you cannot always do that, some places have a good return policy
What still is confusing is that med and above water level....still can't figure out in my head why!!??!!
If I ran into this call in a home, I'd replace/try the timer, but have the WLC handy just because of that med and above senario.
