I have a Maytag MAV7700 washer. It can fill with hot or cold water but when warm is selected it doesn't appropriately mix them to get a warm temperature even with the automatic temperature co


Hi etjacobsen.
As 'warm' is a mixture of 'hot' and 'cold' water a simple remedy to your problem might be to reduce the flow in the tap supplying the machine.
Good luck.

Maytag washer will not get warm


1) the temperature coming from your house determine how is the temperature. You can get hot, cold or mix of hot and cold available to your machine.If the water is too cold affect the machine,and if is too hot, the warm temperature colapse.
If you live Northern are, unless you adjust the cold and hot verywell affect the temperatur of your machine.WARM water is better in summer and Colder during the winter.
God bless you

My new estate washer with 4 water selections actually only has 2, hot and cold. The warm water setting fills with lukewarm water for a while then shoots in cold water for a while and back and forth. In the...


Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.

No warm water coming out of the clotheswasher


Turn the cold water valve about half way closed or maybe more to allow enough hot water to mix with it and make it warm

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 washer won't fill up what is the problem?


Hot and cold tap water valves not turned on.

Bad water inlet valve.

Bad control or temperature selector switch.

The water level sensor is bad.

Or you could have only the cold water hose hooked up and selecting hot wash only. Or you have the hot hose hooked up only and selecting cold wash only. Try selecting a warm wash and see if you get cold or hot water only. If you do, you'll know which is missing.

It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.  Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then  hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed.  Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.

Washing machine doesnt heat the water


Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

The water will not come out cold, it is warm or hot. This washer has an automatic temperature control button.


just a possibility but have you the hot and cold hoses the wrong way round assuming it is a two fill hose machine. way to check is to select rinse and put you hand in the water coming into the drawer. if it is warm, then hoses are wrong way round

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.
