After the wash cycle and the machine starts it's spin, it then stops, beeps. I have to turn it off, turn it back on, then hit the restart button and it finishes the rest of the cycles. It is not out of balance when this happens which is every time I do a load. This machine is about 5 years old. Any suggestions?
I would tend to agree that it is the timer. If you are handy at all, you can fix it yourself. I say this assuming that it is no longer under warranty. If the washer is not past the warranty period, definitely call a repairman!
I get my appliance parts at: www.repairclinic.com
Their prices are quite reasonable and they also provide the instructions for the repair online! If you are unsure that you can do the repair, at least check it out and look at the directions before you call the repair guy to be sure.

There are 3 possibilities,
1. Partial blockage in the pump-you will see this as a lot of water splashing in the machine when it tries to spin. This occurs because the pump cannot remove enough water and the machine can stop due to the program still sees the water from the pressure switch. Starting it again allows the pump to remove the remainder of the water.
2. Door switch could be faulty and as it spins due to weight distribution in the drum it vibrates the door switch.
3. There is also a possibility that the brushes in your motor are starting to wear down -you might see this as clothes coming out of the machine still slightly wet.
If it is 5 years old then you should be still in warranty and only pay a call out fee.
There could be a problem with the timer, you might have to call in a repairman.
There may be a problem with the door switch. It may think you are opening the door.
