Hot Water Inlet Malfunction Maytag MFW9700SQ0

Water sprayed on back of unit. After that, the hot water inlet valve worked once, then stopped. I suspect that the inlet solenoid was shorted out by water, blowing a fuse on the control board or burning out the switch circuit.

Before I lift the stacked dryer off and start troubleshooting, I wanted to check whether the hot water inlet valve control line has a fuse. This will minimize the down-time and let me know what parts to have on-hand. If you have a schematic of the board, or even a hi-res picture, that would be ideal.

Thanks!

What you are describing is not due to the leak. There are no fuses in the unit to protect the valves. The fuses protect the whole machine and if they failed, the unit wont power on at all. There is a control panel board on the front and a control board inside the unit near the back top. Check the connections sounds like when the tech cleans the valves that he is wiggling connections that fail later again.

SOURCE: Water temperature problem

Chief Walley, you have a temperature control board that sits right behind the timer. A thermistor senses the water and sends the info to this board. The thermistor sits at the water injector. The board may be your problem, I have seen many like this. Keep in mind that the target temp for cold is 75 degrees. If your incomming water is higher than this, you are going to get a warm fill, which they think is cold. Without being there, I would go after the board. Catriver...post back.

Have you changed your door latch wax motor yet... If you have the brown actuator pin then you want to chuck that wax motor out of there quicker than spit! You want the redesigned wax motor with the black actuator pin. I know of folks where the wax motor failure caused the timer and /or water valves to act up... See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Washer Wont Spin Water Off

I have a maytag too and this is a easy one and you will be so relieved when you get this done!! and your wife is going to love you toooo !! just unplug the machine 1ST then go to the back uncscrew the back panel right at the bottom of the machine is a pump its got a hose from the tub into the pump and then it leaves the pump into another hose to which leaves your home.... you can unbolt this.. take the hoses loose on both ends . Next take that the drain and hoses and wash them out / I found only a piece of paper clip around the little propeller of course i had to replace the pump but really its not that expensive. I got mine on line ebay.... like $ 20.00 but if you are lucky then you can clean that good. I even went as far as taking it apart a total of 10 minutes tops, just to find out what could be letting this not spin.... maybe yours wont be so tramatic but if it is be relieved when you know it was this simple to fix !!! good luck to you and yours.

Water is pulsating entering a Maytag MTW5821TW0. It's doing it in the cool warm and hot mode not in the cold. Is the water inlet valve or water temperature switch the problem?


Check the inlet screen on the hot water hose at the inlet to the machine and the shutoff valve too. It's possible it's partially plugged.

Possible Mixing valve Problem


I would pull the lines off the back and check the inlet filter on the hot and cold sides of the water inlet and clean the screen style filter. If you just use cold is the water cold if the cold water valve was bad then you would get no cold wate when set to cold.

Maytag MAV6200 will not washer on cold water cycle. Could this be a problem with the push button switch? Washes on all other cycles. However, the warm water is very hot, not warm.


Your cold water inlet valve has more than likely fialed.or.... the inlet screen is completely clogged. First turn off the water to your unit both hot and cold water lines. Then select the wash cycle w
ith hot water only and listen for a hum from the inlet water valve. Then select cold and see if you hear a similar hum. If you do not hear a likewise hum then the cold water solenoid on the water valve has failed and will need to be replaced. (Sometimes this requires the entire water valve be replaced due to the design of the assy) If you hear a similar hum then remove the hoses from the water valve and check for a clogged inlet screen just inside the water hose attachment fitting. If you can not tell if it is clogged remove the screen and hold it up to the light. You should be able to see light through the screen. If it is clogged scrub and wash the screen under running water. It is prety easy to tell if you have it clean. Once you finish reinstall the screen in the water inlet valve, reconnect the hoses and turn on the water. Good luck.

Washer only has cold water. Hot water is good to machine but only cold water enters machine on warm cycle, no water ar all on hot cycle.


Hello there
The Water System temperature sensor is normally what is wrong with these units with this condition that you are experiencing
The water system consists of the hot and cold water inlet valves, a water temperature sensor, a water
flowmeter and control and the dispenser distribution system along with a traditional pressure switch.
Water Inlet Valves -
The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer. These valves receive a control
signal from the Central Control Unit to manage the temperature of incoming water. The temperatures
are determined by the specific wash cycle selected and a temperature sensor located in the wash tub.
To improve cleaning of heavily soiled clothing and to provide a sanitizing feature, the water temperature
can be increased through the use of a heating element located in the bottom of the tub

My maytag neptune washer stop washing with 10 minutes left to go.


If your machine is a FAV6800AWW or FAV9800AWW the (upside down u and f) may be a “NF” for no fill error. The washer has tried to fill the machine with water and has sensed a water fill issue. The control board has shut the wash cycle down with an “NF” error to the display because of excess time to complete the water fill portion of the wash cycle.
Will the machine complete the cycle with Hot water only or Cold water only? I would do a Quick Wash cycle just to test with an empty wash basket.
Regardless of the above test and assuming you have good water pressure for both Hot and Cold supplies to the washer I would do the following. Close the water source valves to the washer and remove the Hot and Cold hose connections at the back of the machine and check for clogged inlet screens. If the water inlet screens are free of restrictions I would go into Service Mode and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves on one at a time and make sure the tub will fill with about 2 inches of water in about 3 minutes in service mode. Check both Hot and Cold inlet valves individually see page 16 of the SM Board Output Test, enter service mode and do the function test for both Hot and Cold Water Valve’s. If the inlet screens are clean and you have water fill restrictions in service mode we may need to look at replacing the water inlet valve assembly. You can turn on the drain pump in service mode to empty the tub or just start a wash cycle and the machine will empty the tub.

sounds like the diaphram in the water inlet valve is going on the hot water side. you need to replace the whole valve. turn off water and remove hoses. remove the housing that holds the valve and remove the valve. replace and reassemble.
