    The hot water wash used to work. Now no water is flowing. I just hear a slight buzzing sound. The hoses are fine. The cold and warm water washes work fine.d and warm water w

    The water runs for a few seconds then stops. Of course it will start again after i open and close the lid but just for a few seconds. When I turn the knob to 'Warm' it works just fine.

    I have come to the general conclusion tha tthe hot water is not functioning at all. I opened the lid during the agitation on the warm water cycle and the water is cold .

SOURCE: Washer immediately goes into wash cycle when

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

SOURCE: how do I get top of my washer..Maytag Centennial

This model Maytag is actually manufactured by Whirlpool. To access the lid switch on this particular model, all you should have to do is remove the operator console. The console has a retaining clip on each side holding it to the cabinet top. To release these clips, simply take a putty knife and slide it under the left and right front corners of the control panel push straight in towards the back of the washer. The clips will depress, allowing the operator console to be lifted up. The lid switch is mounted next to the left lid hinge. Refer to the "Top and Cabinet" parts illustration, Item 6 at searspartsdirect.com:


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MVWC400VW1/3048/0153200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=MVWC400VW1

Some other websites you may refer to for parts include:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

NOTE: If you model number does not cross reference to these sites, use the part numbers fromthe Sears websites as your search criteria. Often, the model numbers may not be included on some websites (newly added models), but the part numbers will.

HINT: In some cases, what may appear to be a bad lid switch, may only be an actuator adjustment. The acutator on these models is the rod attached to the left lid hinge. You can bend the rod slightly to adjust the contact with the lid switch, or it may be tightened as necessary. If the switch toggles (clicks) by hand with the actuator rod removed, the switch typically is not bad.

If you need to remove the entire cabinet to access under the lid, the following link explains how:

Probably the fill lines were reversed. The installation guidance tends to be poor.

Centennial washer, will fill with water, wont spin or agitate, power is good


Easy fix. Lid switch is bad. This is a direct drive machine. Older models would wash but not spin these latest babys won't wash or spin with the lid switch broken. To access te switch you flip up the control by using a putty knife to release each end. Older models had a screw that needed to be removed, not so with the newest ones. The switch has 2 hot wires and a ground wire. Jump them 2 hot wires and see if she runs

I just purchased a Maytag Centennial washer ..it will NOT fill the tub completely with hot water. I have been told that is an 'EPA' spec .. is there anyway to over-ride or go around the sensor that is...


There may be a water level/pressure switch that will accommodate your washer. However, if you install it, I am certain that during the normal warranty period, if you need service, the manufacturer will probably void your warranty if they notice the alteration!

Contact an appliance service company.

New Maytag washing machine, but hot water only comes out in pulses. Cold water works fine. Unsure what's wrong.


Check the hose washer on the washer end of the fill hose. (there is probably a screen in it that may have dirt in it. Clean it if this is the case) Are you positive yout hot water valve is turned all the way on?

You may have to remove the valve stem to check the washer which may have come loose.

Turn the water off before you take the top off the valve!!!!

If you need more help, let me know. I want to assist you.
