hey all question for the timer experts. my L5 laundromat was just fine then she got parked for a good six months went to use it last week and the timer was jammed up stuck solid you could push in and pull out the knob but would not turn, so I took the timer out took of the timer motor and the gear thing that looks like a hockey puck tested the motor it was fine put it back together and it was fine turns smoothly and feels like it always did.. so I ran a load and well when it get to the spot where its supposed to kick into the first spin the machines stops you click the know one click and the spin starts does the same thing when its time for the final spin. has me confused.. this timer is a rebuilt unit that I got about 10 years ago and has only maybe 20 cycles clocked on it.. any ideas
