I have a 20 year old coin operated Maytag top loader.
About a year ago a tenant called the washer did not cycle so I took the coiver off the timer box, and coaxed via pushing a rod a little ways into finishing the wash.

Flash forward. Two times in one week , my tenants called and the washer 1) Stopped full of water but when i got there had finished the cycles.

2) tenant called and the washer didnt fill.
when I got there it was fine. So the timer seems to pause.

Can I spray it with tuner cleaner or WD40 before I buy a $75 timer ?

Thanks Steve

It seems like you have an intermittent problem.It could well be one of your timer wires.
