Recently I was watching a video about replacing a timer on a Maytag Top Load washer.
It is model#LAT5005AAE
and belongs to an elderly friend of the family. She said it was running part of the cycle then stopping and she would have to turn it and try to get it to finish, so she was just going to buy her a new machine. She has never had a problem with it before and I told her she should just replace the timer and keep it instead of having to get used to using a new washer.( She is 93) Got the timer replaced and it works fine now.
My question really was- While watching the video and a few other service vids the guy that was doing the service was talking about water valve problems on a Maytag. He said if you get a slow fill to clean out the screens in the back of the valve, but this is what I didnt understand. He said "Having 2 screens in one line(one at faucet and one at valve) can do more harm than good" That you only needed one or the other which he was using the one in the fill valve and no screen at faucet connection. I was just wondering what "harm" 2 screens will do. My Neptune has 2 on it.
Thanks and sorry about the long post.
