    I I switched the hoses to check if the problem is the inlet valve and checked the screen for sediment, it's clean.
    Cold water still doesn't come through even though water comes through the hose when disconnected from the machine. Hot water comes through into machine no problem.

I have a MAYTAG legacy Series manine. That i just bought from a retailer. My machine is connected to a cold water tap. can i still get a hot water wash if i select a warm or hot cycle? Secondly,...


hello bz... there can be no hot water wash or hot cycle without hooking up a hot water supply line. Also, you must plug that hot water inlet, the correct plug is available at most hardware stores. Finally, yes it is normal for the machine to stop before draining, as the transmission shifts. If the machine is very noisy, that is not normal. To reduce that noise you could put the machine on a piece of thick carpet to deaden the noise a bit. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

there are only 4 total reasons for this fault 1 your water has been turned of. 2 the lid switch is faulty 3 the most common the water inlet valve is burnt out 4 there is no power signal getting to the water inlet valve try putting the cold water hose onto the hot water inlet switch the washer to hot wash see if the water comes through

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.

Possible Mixing valve Problem


I would pull the lines off the back and check the inlet filter on the hot and cold sides of the water inlet and clean the screen style filter. If you just use cold is the water cold if the cold water valve was bad then you would get no cold wate when set to cold.

Maytag washer stopped working at the rinse cycle


do you have the machine set for cold water rinse? if so, the solenoid that allows the cold water to come into the machine may be malfunctioning. try to see if it will fill in the rinse cycle with hot water? if so, you need to change the water inlet valve.

Cold water stopped coming into machine. cleaned the screen and still would not work. switched hot and cold hoses and set temp. on hot. worked for one load, but now the water will only stay on for about 10...


Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

From what you have said, you may have a bad solenoid in your water fill valve. it's the rubber piece under the debris screen. if you can get that out and replace it, you'll be golden.

Maytag Front Load Intellisense 6.5kg


washer may not be detecting water temp but water flow ..if you never use hot water may try hooking cold water to a Y-connector and then hooking to both hot and cold inlet valves ..however it is also possible washer is detecting inlet temps in which case you're out of luck ..i suspect the latter
