I have an older Maytag top loader coin machine. It does pump

Customer Question

I have an older Maytag top loader coin machine. It does pump out on the final cycle. I have to add quarters and run another cycle and then it pumps out fine. It does this every single time. It has a new pump on it.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 15+ yrs
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Just is seems to be something other than pump or belt related.

One moment while I get some information for you!

What is the complete make and model off the tag on the frame of the unit? Normally the model number is ***** a tag on the frame edge when you open the door or back edge of a console.

So what is it not doing exactly? Just not pumping out during the cycle?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
it does not pump out at all. I can re load with quarters and and it will pump out fine. It is every other cycle it does not pump out. It has a new pump on it.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No pump out until another round or quarters and restart cycle. Does it every time.

Does the motor run when it does not pump out?

Customer: replied 25 days ago.
I'm checking. What if it is or isn't.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 25 days ago.

This could be a bad pump on the unit, it may have something in it or the impeller may be bad on the pump. Those pumps fail all the time and sometimes they pump out and other times they will not.
