Good afternoon, all...

Has anyone had any success in rebuilding MT timers themselves. The timers I need are long NLA. LAT9800 was DOA when I got it a few years ago, and now my Fabric-matic LA8650 has a dead call-to-fill circuit that is originating in the timer. The machine works fine - timer advances normally - with manually filling it (I give GREAT spray rinses).

The LAT9800 is being parted out, but thought I would ask about its timer one more time.

Is there a difference between a single speed motor and a 2 speed? The LA8650 would be perfect as a 2 speed/4 combinations washer.

Thanks guys!

Yep - people do service them. There are a couple good threads on here about it, I'll see if I can find them.

The Kingston style in particular are pretty easy to take apart, and you can see right away if the contacts are pitted.

Sure thing!
I think there is a Mallory timer disassembly thread somewhere on the forum too... my searches aren't finding it at the moment though.

That info looks useful. Will see if I can get to applying it to mine shortly.
