Maytag washer stops before rinse cycle

Hi. My Maytag washer stops ,full of soapy water, just before it reaches the rinse cycle. I can get it to empty the soapy water and let in clean water by clicking it to the next cycle. It seems like it doesn't happen every time. It is model #MAV5000AWQ
Any suggestions?

That's better.

That machine has a standard mechanical timer.
Does the machine go completely dead when it should go to drain and rinse ?
I'm guessing the timer is not moving and is silent too ?

I'm leaning towards a worn out defective timer.
Have you tried other cycles...... like gentle ?

Yes, It goes, completely dead, no noise at all. The timer doesn't move at all. So far I have tried the color and whites cycles and it still happens. I might try delicates after work.

Before you spend a lot of money on washer is the tub hitting the sides yet? If not you may be ok. If tub hits sides parts are cheap but is a real pain to fix. Sounds like timer I think

I don't think so. Not 100% sure. During which cycle?

Will happen in spin cycle. Have seen it so bad that washer will walk across the room.

I don't hear the tub hitting the sides.
I'm pretty sure the timer is the problem. , If I pop the knob in and out quickly I can get it to work
