Most Whirlpool and Kenmore washers of 60's and 70's vintage had four intermittent 7-second spray rinses over the course of a two, three or four minute spin between the wash and the rinse. The final spin had two or four more 7-second spray rinses, depending on whether the timer dial incremented once every 60 or 120 seconds.

The 1962 LJA3200 with which I grew up had 75-second timer increments. The spray rinses were of the longer variety. Four in the first spin, two in the final spin.

Short Spin Spray Rinses

My 1964 Kenmore 800 has the traditional four spin sprays during the post-wash & post-rinse spin. However, it's only about three seconds long. Is that typical? It seems very short to me. Can this be fixed and/or changed or is it normal for this year machine?
