Jack, I was on a service call the other day with the same complaint. I have a pressure gauge rigged up to test the water pressure at homes. I removed the washer hose at the shut off valve and put the gauge on. Ideally the pressure should be at around 55psi, 75 max. In this case it was about 100psi. The hammering started with the gauge still attached, no lines to the washer. The customers regulator was bad. Im not saying this is your case, but it's possible. Catriver...post back.

Water comes up to tub but doesn't fill the tub. Help and when I pull the knob I hear a humming noise


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The humming noise your hearing is the inlet water valve solenoid. Before proceeding try switching between warm cold and hot to see if any of those selections give you water. If you get water on either hot or cold then you probably have debris in the inlet screens of the water valve where the hoses connect. Turn off the water. remove BOTH hoses noting hot and cold installed positions and the use a thin knife blade on the outer edge of the screens to lift the inlet screens out of the water valve body. Wash then under slowly running water rubbing them between your fingers. Reinstall the screens. Connect the hoses in their original positions, turn on the water and test your water fill again switching between warm, hot and cold. This should get you going. If your still having problems after doing the above; please respond with MODEL: number and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water hammer makes a loud vibrating noise when filling


Hey- most hammer is removed by simply replacing the water valve. Have solved this way many times. Exceptions required spring suppressors on lines to faucets. Valves run about 40-60$ and are easy to install. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Maytag Performa wont fill hot water


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.
