CHeck to see if the screens in the water valve are plugged. If not the hot water side of the valve went out. Replace the water valve and it will fix both the hot and cold problem.

SOURCE: kenmore 70 series want fill with cold water

You may have gotten some sediment in the water inlet valve which is clogging or restricting the cold water solenoid. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, this is common problem. The valve has electric solenoids controlling the water flow and sediment screens. One for hot, and one for cold. If you turn off the water supply and remove the hoses from the back of the washer, you can see the sediment screens on the valve. You try cleaning them while the valve is installed to see if this will correct some of your flow problem. Also, check the fill hoses. Some hoses have restrictor screens in them which can also become clogged.

If that doesn't work, you may also attempt to clean the valve by removing it and placing it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and water. Allow it to soak for about a 30 minutes. Mix a solution in a container and submerge the valve portion only, leaving the electrical contacts dry. After 30 minutes flush with warm water. Sometimes this works, sometimes the valve needs replaced. You may want to replace the valve altogether if you're going to go the route of removing the it. This will eliminate the guess work and save yourself from having to repeat these steps twice. The following link explains how:

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 Series Washer : cold water fills at just a trickle:

your hot water goes through the water heater so contaminates settle in the heater. the cold does not, there is a screen inside the fill valve where the hose hooks to the valve on the machine. if this in not plugged then the fill valve will have to be replaced. because of the build up of contaminates..

SOURCE: Water trickles out when filling instead of the steady stream

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the valve (especially the hot water side) and check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. Here is a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Maytag Atlantis Washer - no cold water


Check the solenoid valves. If it's connected to hard water, the minerals build up inside and won't let the internal plunger move.

My washer only lets a trickle of warm water in even on the hot cold setting. the cold water comes in fine. no kink in the inlet hose. Is there a control part for this?


You need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the machine. I would need the model number located under the lid to be able to direct you to the part.

The water fills very slowly on rinse


You probably have a cold inlet valve with restricted flow, either because the filter on the inlet valve is clogged or because the cold valve is failing......If you wash on "warm" you have both hot and cold water mixed. On rinse there is probably only cold water used....Check water flow for HOT and COLD settings and you'll probably see the difference...Good luck...Nomess

When the dial is set on cold water trickles in but on warm/hot water runs in normally.


Turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the rear of the washer. Use a bent paper clip to remove the filter screen from the water valve inside the cold water hook up. Clean the filter screen and replace it.
The screen must be in place to prevent damage to the water valve.

The cold water comes out on a trickle. the warm & hot settings come out normal. nothing is caught in the line.


check the screens for dirt in the end of the fill hoses and the water inlet valve on the machine. you may need to try replacing the water inlet valve.

I DON'T GET WARM WATER, WHEN SET ON WARM, ONLY GET COLD


If the setting is only hot and cold, there will be no
warm water coming out. At warm setting if it is
present, it should give you warm water.

I have the washer on cold water, but it runs warm, stops, trickles, then comes out warm again, stops, trickles, then warm again ect.On the rinse cycle it will only trickle out.


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.

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.
