Hi, the problem you have with your pump is called short cycling of a water pump. It is caused by loss of air in the water pressure tank, a defective water pressure control switch, a blockage in water supply piping, a clogged water filter among many other causes.
You have to identify the real cause before you can go ahead to get the solution....

Take care

My 8025 gets hung up on pins


Contact Uni-line for replacement clock motor

Advantage 8025 mechanical timer that gives short time intervals from 1 minute to 27 minutes.

If you are using for septic tank pump, then you have 1 circuit, so you do not need the 8025 to control 3 circuits.

You can install digital timer (EH40 240Volt, or EH10 120Volt) and also get 1 minute intervals.

Timer that has a 20 minutes interval up to 1 hour


More information is needed.
For example, a) what voltage timer is needed, b) what Load are you controlling and c) how does timer mount?

Easiest solution is 60 minute repeat cycle timer.
Timer knobs are adjusted, or the timer dial rotates once per hour and 20 minute timing cycle repeats each hour. The cycle repeats 24-7-365.
If you want the cycle to operate certain hours of the day, another 24 hour timer can be installed in-line.

The hot water recirc pump in my new house was equippped w/ this timer. There was no user manual, but it was set by the installer to run the pump during awake hours and shut it off during sleep hours. ...


1) Open link below so we are talking about same type of household system
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) 15 minute interval is misleading.
Pins located on timer dial divide 24-hour day into 15 minute intervals.
You set timer pins and decide which 15 minute intervals you want ON-or-OFF. Do this by moving pins inward or outward with your thumb or ink pen. To check settings, manually rotate timer dial clockwise and listen for pump turning on-off..
Set timer pins for 4 consecutive 15 minute intervals, then timer runs for 1 hour.
After pins are set, then manually rotate dial to set current time.
Dial rotates as time passes, and pins click a lever that turns pump on-off.

3) 5-year Life span. Like all things plumbing, if you have hard water or sand-n-dirt in water lines, then pipes clog. And pumps clog.
Once motor begins to slow down, it overheats and burns out.
Water softener can keep sediment out of lines, but shortens life of water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html

4) Real question: do you need a circulation pump? Do you need hot water at your faucet? Can you schedule hot water use, or does recirculation pump have to run several hours per day?
Recirculation pumps causes water heater to run more, the pump consumes 25+ watts depending on pump, and water savings claims of 15,000 gallons per year are fabrication.
Realistic water savings is 700-2000 gallons per year, assuming several folks in the home use water sporadically across a full day, and each time water is used people are waiting for hot water. It also assumes that you never want cold water at the tap and that refrigeration ice maker line prefers hot water to cold.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

Why are there 6 hour 8 hour an 10 hour timers to defrost a self defrosting refrigerator


Good day,
The decision as what the time interval of a timer should be is determined by engineers and field tests.
There is more to the timer than interval. Timers are usually listed as 8 hours 21 minutes, 8 hours 30 minutes ect. The minutes is used to designate the time the control stays in defrost.
A general rule is if the interval is longer, the minutes in the defrost cycle is extended to compensate.
Other factors come into play such as the wattage of the defrost heaters and the defrost thermostat temperature.

The trend today, with timers is to extend the interval to make the machine more energy efficient.

There is never an issue to defrost more often then the original, but it will run the heaters more often, and cause increased operating cost and shortened heater life.
The short and long of it is you can use a 6 hour timer in any machine if the timer motor wiring is the same and the duration is long enough, but with the costs listed above.

Will Not Run


I had the exact same problem. The tech came by and suggested to run the diagnostic cycle to clear up the error. Nice guy didn't charge for the time. He said Whrilpool has a poor software design. 
Problem - LED blinks 7 times when the temperature doesn't come up to the degree F required for the wash. This may happen if someone took a shower minutes before starting the dishwasher.
The Tech said, Whirlpool should have allowed a straight forward reset by the customer (instead of disabling the machine for a tech to come by and fix the minor issue).
Here is the solution. 
Solution - (is pretty much the same to clear up the other software glitches as well)
Try "resetting" the control board by running the diagnostic cycle. The cycle completes in 15 minutes.  
The details are in the service manual. The manual can be found hidden behind the tow plate (at the very bottom front of the washer). 
The diagnostic cycle may tell you the problem. It also helps clear up some of the software gltiches.  
It is easy to run the diagnostic cycle. 
Just the buttons in the following sequence. The sequence should be complete within 6 sec.  
heated dry -> Normal -> heated dry -> Normal 
This will trigger diagnostic cycle of 19 intervals. Pay special attention to the intervals 18, 17, 9, 6, 4. 
Interval 18 - displays your controller module number (should be letter 'd' followed by number 0 or 1 or 2 or something. Note that down for future reference. 
Interval 17 displays 'software generation number' Note that down for future reference. 
Then wait until you reach interval 9.  --- clean LED turns on - then an open or shorted thermister is detected. 
-- Sanitized LED turns on - then the washer detected greater than 100 deg F temperature 
Interval 7 
-- Soaking/sensing LED should NOT come on (unless food soil is present). 
Interval 4 -- Soaking/sensing LED should come on


Let the cycle complete and then try running the normal wash. Hopefully the possible glitches are cleared by now and you should have no problem.  
If this doesn't work, time to call the expert tech.
