This sounds like a energy saving switch,I would check your inlet screens first. then we can go from there.

My kenmore serie 300 washer only wash with cold wather no hot wather


If I understand, you are saying that you are not getting any hot water coming into the washer. First, I would make sure that you have hot water available at the washer spigots. SLOWLY unscrew the hot water hose at the hot water spigot and see if you have hot water available. If you do, the problem is usually at the water inlet solenoids, or if you are lucky, the water screen filter. Turn off the how water spigot and unscrew the hose at the washer. There is a screen there at the washer water inlet, see if it is clogged. If not, the problem is most likely the solenoids. To replace the solenoid unit requires some disassembly of the washer.

On my Maytag Washing Machine...Sometimes my water selector works... sometimes it doesnt. Sometime hot will come out when set on cold and sometimes cold will come out when set on hot.. Sometimes it works...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Just reading this it sounds like the water temp selector switch is acting up. You did not provide a model number so this is just an outright guess to help you. Try this if you have the button type start mashing the buttons several times between temps. Do it with conviction. Your cycling the switch to unstick or clean off the contacts in the switch. If the cycle temp switch fails while doing this; changing the switch was the next recomendation to correct the temp problem. You should cycle the switch at least 30 times methodically. Press, change temp, press repeatedly. Then check your cycle water temps for hot and cold as selected. Depending upon model you could have a problem with the water inlet valve. I will wait for a response before commenting on that.

If you need specific model information I need your Model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Washer is rinsing with hot wateer nomatter what temp. setting is used. I have tried to switch hoses twice now, no difference in rinse but now on correct wash temp.


The MAH5500 series washers have automatic temperature control functions so the washer can control water temp regardless of water heater settings and other factors. I would say either your definition of "hot" is not truly "hot" (over 110 degrees), or the washer's ability to sense has failed (which would also affect fill temp on "wash" fills also). If someone has worked on the washer recently, maybe they reversed the wiring to the water valves inside the machine? ATC temps are as follows: Cold 70-90, warm 90-110, and hot is unregulated at 110 degrees and up. These are normal temp ranges for ATC controlled machines, and are completely safe for fabrics.

Temp stuck on hot on my front loader washing machone


Water temperature is controlled by a switch which activates or deactivates the hot and cold water solenoids. Replace this switch, it is not expensive.

Maytag washer/hot and cold water


Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.

Water temperature is inconsistent


hey there sounds like your hot falve is faulty, if it is faulty they tend to either switch off and not open to let water in, or not open at all, get a service tech to look at you hot valve.

Rinse cycle temperature


You may have a problem with your Temp Switch or the Sensor Thermistor.  Very easy to check and fix depending on your technical ability.  Both of these parts are connected off the Automatic Temperature Control Board.
