Hot water will not fill into the tank when starting cycle.
I have a Maytag clothes washer model LAT8434AAE Serial #A0103716.
I do not get hot water filing into tank when Wash/Rinse Temperature dial is set to either Hot - Cold or Warm - Warm. I switched wires at the valve then I would get hot water on settings so it seems electrical to me. I am trying to determine what part is bad so I can buy new and replace.
I also have the same problem with the exact same Maytag model. Is the Hot Water Fill Valve the same as the Maytag 205613 Washing Machine Water Valve? I can't seem to find a hot water fill valve on the Maytag parts online site.

I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.
Then you most likely have a bad hot water valve. On Maytags the valve is one combo unit for both hot and cold. Maytag didn't change that much for a number of years, so you may be able to salvage one out of an old machine somewhere and fit it in -- that's what I did when my wife's Maytag did this.
two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news
should you select a 40* wash it would not be right if the machine filled with hot water, as the water in the house tank is a lot more than 40* ( around 65* i think?) this would just damage the clothes and i am sure you would just complain again at that.
if the machine works fine then there is no problem
dudett, uplug the washer and turn the water valves on. If the washer is filling with the washer unplugged the valve is bad. Part number 22001196. Not a hard job. If you need help installing, just e-mail the cat here at firstname.lastname@example.org Catriver..post back.
