The one thing that can cause this is if someone puts one set of coins in and pushes the slide in but for some reason doesn't start the machine, (maybe they were stoned and forgot they already put money in it??), then money gets put in again and the coin slide is pushed in.
After the first set of coins have been inserted and the coin slide pushed in the cam is in the start position where the start button is receiving power to start the timer. If the coin slide is pushed in again before the start is pushed the coin slide would have to be loaded 6 or 7 more times and pushed in before the cam would be back around to the start position.
This is designed this way so as to be able to make the cost of a load of laundry be higher then the maximum amount of money that can be inserted in the coin slide at once. A vertical 8 slide can go up to $2.00, if you wanted a load to cost $3.00 you would set the slide to accept $1.00 and set the cam on the timer wheel to the #3 position, (I believe), then you would have to put $1.00 in 3 times pushing the slide in after each $1.00 before the start button would work when pushed.
