    Does anyone know how to eliminate one rinse cycle from the W6xx series Wascomat washers? These are NOT the Compass control units. I can’t find anything on the internet. I have heard it takes a change to the wiring somehow.

    On the non-CC models, it should just be a jumper setting on one of the internal control boards.  IIRC, it's actually labeled.

    on the back of my W640s is a access panel. Inside is a board, find the rinse option and there should be some extra jumpers in there. they look like 4 prong staples, very tiny. P.S. TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST>

    this is on page 55 of the service manual

    "When adding a jumper on P there will be two rinses instead of three. The timer rapid
    advances the first rinse."

    It even says "2 rinses" on the control board.

    You will be surprised at how easy this is to do.  FYI - When I did this a couple years ago (on sage advice from this forum), I got zero complaints from customers.  Part of the reason if I still keep a decent water level for proper rinsing.
