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.

Cold water cycle has warm water no cold water allowed. sounds like some kind of valve is not stopping the hot water from coming in

Make sure that the inlet hoses are connected to the correct inlet solenoid valve (located just inside the cabinet). If the hot water solenoid was passing water when not wanted, the washer would eventually overflow on to the floor. There may be a problem with the solenoid control circuits which may require professional help to diagnose.

Cold water cycle doesnt work, no cold water at all, just hot

Could be the cold water solenoid is stuck or broken, maybe a wire has broken or terminal worked loose.

You need to take a look inside and check the wiring, check the supply to the solenoid, etc. If the supply is good the solenoid is probably faulty. If there is no supply it is possibly the board or the controller.

No cold water, just hot water

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Washer was working fine! Moved washer to new house, and now it will run but only with hot water. put washer on Auto controll, and cold cold or warm cold setting, and it wont even turn on.

Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!

Can't get anything but warm of hot water

If you set the washer for cold wash with a cold rinse, no hot or warm should enter the machine. If any hot or warm enters machine on cold / cold, check to see if the hot and cold hoses are hooked up correctly, and not reversed.

Water fill, discharge and noise problems

to reset the water level you have to turn the knob all the way over as far as it will go and then come back to large load.

Cold water will not run into washer, but drips when washer is off

Take the hose off the back of the washer and remove the screen and you will find it to full of sediment. Clean it out and try again.

3 suggestions. 1st, make sure all of your valves are open. (some times installers forget to open them back up after the install) 2nd, fill the machine until the water gets hot. Check on the rear of the machine and make sure the hose going to the "COLD" valve is not hot (somtimes these hoses are reversed when they are installed) if those are both ok, then 3rd shut the water off and unscrew the cold side hose. (There is a screen underneath that can get covered with sediment from the house water supply and cause the water not to flow)
