Make sure you have not selected economy wash,as this bypasses the heater, and washes at the temperature the water has come into the washer at,
If it still is not getting hot, then the heater element is more than likely to be the culprit., these 2 things are about the only ones that would enable the washer to wash in cold water.
Plz rate my solution.

    Remove top cover ,and then unclip the wire band that holds the door seal on at the front, ,push the seal back inside the drum..

    Undo the 2 screws that hold the door lock at the right hand side of door.

    Pull out the dispenser draw, and remove 4 screwa that hold top console panel, slide the panel to the right to disengage it from the cabinet front.

    Remove. 3 screws at the top of front panel, remove plastic panel at bottom of washer, undo 3 further screws, and remove panel.

    At bottom you will see the heater element, remove terminal cover, disconnect wires.

    Unscrew the center nut on the heater and remove it completely, prize the element out with a screwdriver or similar, transfer the plate at the end to the new heater,and refit new element.

    Replace all parts in reverse order.

    Make sure the element is faulty, before removing it.

    Plz rate my solution.


    Tighten up center nut on element reasonably tight, but don't overdo it

Will not advance automatically through cycles. Ha...

I would have thought it was the board too! does it beep when it stops? if it does then it should be putting up a fault row of lights..CHeck that you have both the hot & cold hoses connected & turned on at the taps.even if you are not useing hot water to wash with,turn them both on anyway.Some machines require this regardless of wether you are useing hot.The reason for this is F&P have built into their machines to give a little squirt of hot water to maintain a certain level of cold wash.Make sure also that hot hose is going to hot valve & cold to cold.

The washing machine won't start if "cold water" only is selected. It will only work when "warm water" or "hot water" is selected (and even then there is only hot water filling the machine, the cold water...

Check the cold water solenoid. If a meter is not available you can swap the hot and cold wires and see if the symptom changes to hot water when cold is selected. If so the mixing valve needs replaced. If no then further testing of the wire harness and timer circuit are needed.

Will not wash with cold water even though cold/ cold is selected.

But it will wash with hot? The water inlet valve on the back where the hoses connect to the washer is not working or is stuck closed. You can swap the wires with the other (hot) valve and see it the cold will work when you select hot. If it does then the valve is not a problem but the wiring or the selector switch could be. Inspect all the wiring you can see to try to eliminate that as the problem and concentrate on the selector switch.

Cold water Washes

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Maytag washer

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-hot water source

Most washers require both hot and cold supply. If it has two hose fittings on the back, then you need both hot and cold. I've only seen Asko washers that need just the cold. Even if your washer has a water heat option, it will only heat during a portion of the cycle if the option is selected, it is not a substitute for the hot water supply.
