Didn't know the pause was so important. It does pause after agitating. It pauses for about 3 or4 minutes on a small load before beginning to drain.
From this part of your post, I can pretty much guarantee you it's a bad timer.
If it pause for 3 or 4 minutes then begins to drain, you have missed the 3-5 second motor pause. The pause is at about 2 minutes, as all water should be drained within 2 minutes, then timer causes the motor to pause for 3-5 seconds and then restarts, to shift out of neutral drain.
You most likely have some bad motor spin contacts causing this long pause before it actually starts to drain/spin. In that 3 or 4 minutes it should have been draining out the water for 2 minutes, then the 3-5 second pause, then restart for spin and spin for 3 or 4 minutes, (or much longer on final spin), depending on the cycle your in.
