My MXC power supply was acting up and I figured out it's the adapter jack in the pedal itself. It's loose, so that if I step on the pedal just right, it cycles the power and sends me back to patch 01...which is silent.....grrr

I tried re-flowing the solder on that piece, but its still acting up. I think the little plastic receptacle is just worn and 'stretched out'

I guess I'll be replacing that part, but for now, where do these two washers go? They were on the 1/4" jacks, but there are four jacks and only two washers....which two get them? CC Pedal 1&2 or Switch 1&2?  :dunno:

Normally there are 4 washers, are you sure the other 2 are not on the jacks?

I got two  :dunno:

Don't see any others, or any marks to indicate which ones they were in. They seem to be plastic though, does it matter where they go? Are they compression washers to keep the plastic nuts tight? That's what they seem to be, but I'm speculating.

Update: I have come to a resolution on the placement of the washers....they will go on the only two jacks I use. Actually, I only use one (Switch #2). If I begin to use the CC pedal again, I'll plug it into Pedal #2. Problem solved.
