I have a Whirlpool Top Load Model LSR8233JQO purchased Sept 2000.. Always worked well. Yesterday...

came home to find the timer in the spin setting, rinse water still in tub. Will fill but will not agitate, spin or drain; but will drain to gravity. Once the washer has filled the timer "hums" for lack of a more descriptive word, for maybe 10 seconds and then you can hear it click off. If you let it cool it will repeat this pattern. Could this problem be the timer? Thank You
