I get cold water to wash ,but no hot water
When I set the machine to hot only...I hear a buzz and no water at all is dispencing into washer. I know I have hot water getting to the washer. This is an older Matag, don't have the model number here. Guessing the solenoid? where is that and can I replace it.

Re: no hot water to wash
Check the particle filter screen in the hot water hose. It is located in either end of the hose, or sometimes just inside the inlet on the solenoid. In my experience this has been the culprit over 60% of the time.

Lift the top of your washing machine by unscrewing the back or remove the back and you will find a code and test sheet inside, you normally will find it at the top edge of the machine from or back. Very easy to use if followed to a T.
The buzzing is the water valve, the timer is sending power to the valve but no water is coming out. I would set to wash and as it is filling up change the water to cold then to hot while it's filling. I bet either cold or hot will buzz (usually hot). Once you determine which (clod or hot) shut that supply off, take that water line off the washer, put the end in the washer and turn the supply back on. If water comes out then look inside the valve where the hose connects, it could be clogged. If you have water going to the valve and you don't see a clog then the problem is inside the valve...replace valve.
its probably your cold water rinse only valves solenoid thats loose on the structure or the coil itself is loose,you may not hear it all the time especially during the initial wash start fill,try this, set the washer for cold water fill only on the washer,but turn off the water valves that supply water and start your machine to a wash cycle as normal,try this and see if it dry buzzes(without water),then try the same on the hot side,then with the water still off open up the machine and you can localize the buzzing noise
Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....
If you know for sure that water is flowing TO the washer's water hoses, then the water solenoids must be bad. Listen to see if you can hear both the cold and hot water solenoids buzzing (use the cold & hot water temp switch to switch back and forth). If they're buzzing, then water should be flowing, but if not then water cannot flow because they're not mechanically opening up (they are bad).
