This concerns a Maytag model...
This concerns a Maytag model A104. Just cleaned out supply hoses, and water distribution block. Water enters machine at a good rate. However when in rinse mode, the water barely trickles in. Is this due to a bad timer motor or timer? The rotary switch feels as solid as ever but for some reason the rinse cycle barely occurs. You have to manually run the switch through this cycle. Everything else on the machine performs as well as always.
