I was filling the washer tub with hot water, It filled part of the way then the water stopped running. The buttons for warm/cold and cold/cold are operating properly, just the hot/cold isn't. I'm hoping it's the water valve and not the temperature control switch. Please help :)
You will want to check the water valve screen to make sure that the screen is not clogged. If it is then clean it out. Then test to see if there is power getting to the water valve. If there is power to the hot water side of the valve then the valve is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Maytag Washer will not fill with hot water. Not in any setting. Can get cold water in all settings..
You will want to check to see if there is 120 vac getting to the hot water side of the water valve. If there is power to the water valve then you will want to check the screen on the valve to make sure that it is not clogged and if it is then clean and if not then replace the water valve.
Will Fill with hot water but no cold? Cleaned filter screens no help.
Answer Hello John. If the screens are clean, you will need to order and replace the water valve 205613 on the unit.
Does it matter how you connect the wires to a replacement valve? I forgot to look before removing the old one!
Answer Yes, It does matter where there wires are attached to the fill valve. If attached improperly to the fill valve terminals, the water temperatures will be reversed. The Blue wire needs to be attached to the cold solenoid, the orange wire attaches to the hot solenoid and the white wire needs to be attached to the empty terminal on each solenoid.
Problem: The hot water does not shut off once the tub fills to the proper level only the cold water shuts off. The hot water continues to flow until the wash cycle is complete then everything shuts down and the water stops flowing.
What is the voltage to the water valve coils? AC or DC
Answer LRB, The tendency would be to suspect the water inlet valve 205613, but based on your post information, it's more likely you have a short in the wiring between the timer and the water inlet valve or a contact failure in the timer 206230 itself. The information would indicate that the washer is supplying voltage to the hot water solenoid and keeping it "open" during the whole cycle. When the timer advances into the off position, and voltage is removed from the timer, the solenoid closes and the water stops flowing.
When washer starts the wash cycle it will wash anywhere from 10 to 20 seconds and will stop and fill with more water. It seems like the water level is dropping just enough to make it stop and refill to the level that is selected. It will do this through out the entire wash cycle. rinse and spins fine.
Answer Jeff, A couple of things to check, first the drain pipe, the top of the drain pipe (where the drain hose attaches) needs to be 36 to 38 inches high from the floor. Any thing lower will cause the washer to momentarily syphon the water out of the tub. Also, remove power to the washer, lower the control panel and check the air dome hose 22001619 where it attaches to the water level switch 207362, make sure the tube fits very tightly on the switch spout, there are no pin holes or cracks in the tube and the hose clamp fits tight. A minor air leak in the tube or switch can cause the symptoms you described.
