    Did not quite understand did you mean on the timer itself ? or the harness from the washer looked and didn't notice any difference space on the pins thanks for the help but still at a loss. Seems to be somthing in wiring or another bad timer like I said sprayed it with contact cleaner but still have problem .

    Thanks again for you help..

Look at timer plug on harness for pins that are sticking out from side of timer plug, away from timer. See if they are all in the same amount. Sometimes one can work its way out so it won't make a good contact. Push in to plug if you find one.

    You have to check on the plug itself, not timer.

My washer does nothing when you put it in the rinse cycle however it does fill with water. I believe the problem is the timer switch. can you confirm this issue

Not so? If it does not go into agitation? You may have a bad water pressure switch which sends signal to start agitation. but also can have bad cam dogs in agitator which do not engage agitator? a bad door switch will not allow agitation or spin on some appliances. And lastly yes u may have a bad timer wheres points have fused? can check most of these with a multi meter

Mav7600 won't agitate

It is your Transmission. Mine did the EXACT same thing just a couple days after your post. If you want some troubleshooting advice, part numbers, where I bought my parts, or advice on disassembly/reassembly, I will be glad to help. The truth is, I already wrote a detailed answer to your problem and before I posted it I read the "Terms of Use" page, and when I went back to the "solutions" page, everything I wrote was gone. So, if you want it, let me know and I will try again.

Maytag washer

This is similar to a problem I had after my power suddenly went out while the washer was filling with water. When the power resumed the washer would no longer run water... all other systems (agitate, drain, spin) worked fine.

A 10 minute, $113 dollar service call revealed that there was a fuse inside the front upper left area that had blown. Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the front panel to get access to the inside.

Check it out and replace it if necessary.

Dont worry by the time you read this it will probably already start working again. There is a Auto Reset Thermal Overload Switch on the motor that shuts it down when its pulling too much amperage. Its not good for them but they are usually fine. Just advise your wife its hard on your particiular design washer to be overloaded.
