MAYTAG WASHER (LAT8826AAE) Extra Rinse Cycle

4 posts in this topic

I have a Maytag Washer ( LAT8826AAE) which has an intermittent problem going into the extra rinse cycle when it shouldn't.  I have the extra rinse button out and I find that sometimes after the last spin the timer keeps going and does the extra rinse.  Any advise on where to look for this problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

When you say you have the extra rinse button out, do you mean you turned off the switch or you removed the switch from the washer?

The Extra Rinse button is a push button.  The button is out and not enabled or off.  The Extra rinse sould not come on.

Did you test that button switch for continuity with your meter?  With the button pressed in and on, it should show continuity and the meter should beep,  with the button out and off you should get nothing and no beep. If  the switch tests good, your problem is the timer.
