Thanks for the info and the quick reply. I looked up the timer and there is one by Maytag and one by Whirlpool with Maytag being cheapest so since they are the same I will get the Maytag one.
Too bad things aren't still made this way. In 26 years all that has been changed is the water valve and that wasn't even the problem. After replacing that it kept overfilling and the line to the pressure switch was stopped up with gunk from the days of Fab detergent with fabric softener in it and too many cold washes.
This belongs to my brother and his wife. She went and bought a new Speed Queen so I told him instead of junking this one I wanted it to keep in case someone came along and needed one. IMO it is to good to throw away. It is working fine now but it has had the timer problem a couple of times and she wanted a new one before this one stopped again.
I wonder if the new SQ will last as long as the Maytag?
