The machine is 10=12 years old and in great shape i got it used, a few weeks ago from a storge sale. the cold water dose not work . when I try to run a cold water cycle it sound like there is air in the line,and make the hose shake really bad, I swape out the cold for the hot and it ran fine so it is the machine and the the water line. when I only use hot water it is ok but when I use warm or cold only is when I have the problem.
There should be filter screens in the water valve and/or hoses. These can be cleaned, but are an inexpensive hardware-store part. Sediment in the water supply can clog the screens. The cold causes more problems than the hot because the water heater acts as a settling tank. Do not operate the washer without the screens as the sediment can cause a valve to remain open.

look at the water knob one will say hot one will say cold . on the one that says cold there is two arrows one will say open one will say shut turn the knob closer and closer to the arrow that says open. turn it till you cannot turn it any more . now your washer is most likely to work if not look at creaters glide if still does not work cheak water pipes and coneshoins and if still does not work ask someone at the store and if STILL does not work return to store and buy a new one i hope your washer works.
Hi Elllie602 (!) from retired Englishman in SW France,
2 weeks old? Under guarantee/warantee? Get in touch with the vendor/shop!!!
Even if it takes only cold water for the warm wash (which is a bit daft- normally washers mix the hot and cold accordingly) and heats it, that is not how most hot n' cold washers work.
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!
Your old Maytag is a much better machine than the new Maytag's, but replacing the drum bearing and seal is a somewhat expensive and rather difficult job, requiring a couple special tools. Not usually a do it yourself job. Unless you really love that machine, it's time for a new one. The average life of a washer is about 9 years. Look into the front load models which use much less water and spin out over twice as fast as your old top load machine. LG is the top rated by consumer reports, but you don't have to buy the top of the line models to get the the direct drive motor with 7 year part warranty. Other companies make a pretty good product also.
Don't bother rating this "solution" as anything but a FixYa lowers my rating.
With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,
First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange! If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!
How old is the washer?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!! Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket! The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses. Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment! Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
If none of these tasks remedy the problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide. A&E Factory Service A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7 And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures! 1(800) 905-9505
You will be fine Bless You ngafm1 PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING HERE AT FIXYA.COM BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the temp thermister in the control panel is bad, lowes has a 30 day return policy if they delivered it have them bring you a new one, if you picked it up take it back, get a new one no need in starting out with an new almost out of the box washe with problems
my washer is about 1 year old. It started leaving water in all the the compartments,soap,bleach and softner. I tried everything also. Nothing seemed to work. I finally took the hoses off the back of the machine, and the cold water hose screen was clogged up going into the machine. I cleaned all the screens and haven't had that problem again. I think there wasn't enough water pressure to flush out the containers. I dont think its gravity or suction, its water pressure. unless you get a blast of water into these compartments, there will always be water left in these containers.
Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely
you will have to get under to check it out.
Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides
Do a wash and repeat.
But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.
