Question about Washing Machines
I have afew coin operated maytag washing machines. one of ther timer motors went and I need it replaced. Unfortunately, I dont have the model # of the machine because these machines were originally regular machines that were converted into coin machines by replacing the top. Thse machines are about thirty years old.
The timers have a little plastic head that attaches to the shaft tof the timer. When the coin slide is pushed in, the plastic head pushes in the whole shaft which starts the cycle
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
