The water selector is on warm wash/cold rinse. The water starts in warm like it should then after 20 seconds it changes to all cold. Never comes back to warm. Please tell me what part I need. The screens are clean and the hot water is working well.
The unit operates off of a thermistor that is in on the water valve. The thermistor will sense what the water temperature is and open and close according to the temp. If the incoming water temperature is above 70 degrees then the bimetal will not open to allow hot water to come in. It is possible that the bimetal is defective and water valve would need to be replaced.
How do I access the water pressure switch on my Maytag MTW5600TQ1 washer? Not sure how to get into the top panel.
Answer Hello Denny,
You would want to use a putty knife on either side of the control panel. On either side there is a clip that you would want to push in on and lift up on the control.
