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.
