Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV9750A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water filling My water pulsates as the machine fills. I can almost eliminate the problem by setting the water temp. to anything other than warm/warm. It pulsates enough to cause the supply hot water pipe supply to hammer. I suspect that the water control valve it the cause but want another opinion before I buy parts and get into the machine to change it. Thanks to anyone who can help.

Re: water filling

Before you replace the water valve itself, take the hot water hose off and inspect the screen at the valve inlet. There could be a lot of grit restricting it. If the screen is clear, than I would be in agreement with you that it is the valve itslef..hope this helps you.

Whirlpool Ultimate care 2 washer doesnt fill on start or rinse or spray in spin all other functions fine whats wrong?

The water valve has a 'Hot' and 'Cold' side, make sure to test if the unit will fill at a different water temp. setting, as a Cold/Cold setting will paralyze the machine if the Cold side of the water valve has failed... Some newer machines have temperature sensors attached to the valve and will not fill if the sensor fails... Washing Machine Water Inlet Valve 285805

Hot water hose pulsates when washer is filling up in warm setting.

It's the pressure from the hot water supply to your machine, if you fill from hot water tap, turn tap down a little to reduce the water flow. Should be OK then

Washer filling problem

Check to hose to the water level control. It goes from the outside of the tub up to the control which is located in the same area as the timer. It's usually round with the end of that tube and at least 2 wires connected to it. Disconnect the hose and blow air through it. Reconnect and try again. Still no fill, try filling with that tube disconnected. Watch it the entire time as with the tube off the water should not stop. If it fills all the way with the tube off the water control unit has a problem.

GE super capacity heavy duty washing not filling w/hot water

On an older model washer, you probably have a bad water valve. (hot water solenoid coil electrically " open ") Newer models, now there's a can of worms. Some models use thermistatically controled water valves to limit water temps, so you may not be able to get true hot water. Also, if you are checking the temp as the machine fills, some models will only fill with cold if the lid is open. (safety feature) The only way to see what is really going on is to fill the machine with cold and use a thermometer to check the water temp, then, pump that out and fill (with the lid closed) with hot and check to see if that temp is higher. As stated previously, water temp may not really be " HOT " but may be warmer than " COLD ". That may be as good as you will be able to do, as all manufacturers are trying to reduce energy consumption. Thank your government.

Displaying LE

Lg has a water pulsator which rotates while filling up with water. If pulsator is faulty, you will get this LE indication. Pulsator is found on bottom left hand side of unit when cover is removed. 2 clear water pipes are connected to it and there is a small plug in that has 2 wires. Remove plug in first then remove from the pipes.

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Pulsating water in the hot water cycle

id be curious as to the age of this machine, because the newer models have what teh call adaptive water temp sensors that will optimize the water temp automatically.. your hot water may be "too hot" and your cold can be "too cold" and the valve corrects to a preset temp. this sounds like whats happening

Kenmore 80 series model #110.26882503 fills slowly

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.
