Which water valve part goes with this machine?
Answer Hello Alethia. You will need to order 22001274 for the correct water valve.
The cold water was coming out very weak. I replaced the Water Valve (part # 22001274) - but no change. The Hot water is dispensed strongly, but the Cold water remains as before. Could there be a blockage elsewhere? I already replaced both the Hot & Cold water feed hoses. Thanks
Answer Hello Paul,
You should connect the cold water supply hose to the faucet and with the other end loose, turn the water on to make sure ample pressure is available at this point. It is possible for the faucet to have a mechanical issue where it isn't opening properly. You should also make sure the injector hose is not crimped or pinched in its' installed position.
Which water valve for this maytag model?
Answer Dan, to verify the correct valve listed for model LAT8706AAE we will also need the serial number. Please obtain this information and repost for further assistance. Thanks!
Why won't the cold water quit running into the machine?
Answer Hello Harry. If you can stop the water from entering the machine by turning off the timer or unplugging the unit, you will need to look for a bad pressure hose or replace the pressure switch. If the only way to shut off the water is at the shut off for the water hoses, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
The washer will fill up with water when the water temperature switch is set to "Warm", but will not fill with any water when set to "Cold". I watched the repair video where one of your technicians replaced the water inlet valve, and this seemed to be identical to the type of repair I need to perform. I believe the problem is stemming from an issue with the solenoid. I just wanted to make sure I was purchasing the correct part prior to placing my order.
Answer Hello Campbell,
You need to first remove the water supply hoses, one at a time so they don't get crossed, and check the screen in the water valve and check for a screen in the hose, (both ends). If no screens are stopped up and voltage is being supplied to the water valve, (cold side), when it is turned on and should be filling with cold water, the water valve will require replacement. If voltage is not being supplied to the valve, the water temperature switch is suspect.
