Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water flows in cold side of water valve and out hot side valve

We recently moved and our washing machine came with us. It is a Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW. When I hooked up the water hoses and turned on the water the hot side hose started leaking. I replaced both hoses hooked everything back up turned on the water and the same thing happened. I disconnected the hot side from the spigot and turned on the cold side only. When I turn on the washing machine with cold water only water enters the tub and exits out of the hot side of the water valve. Is the water valve bad?

It seems unlikely that something went wrong just from moving it unless it got banged up!
It sounds like you may have stripped the hot side.
I'm assuming the water is going in the cold side and out the hot side and out the back.
If this is so and you are happy with just cold water try this:
Go to a Plumbing Store and buy a cap for the leaking intake...if it still leaks you can try soldering the two together!
I hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!

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 Performa wont fill hot water


The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

Maytag performa washer hot/cold cycles reverse, hooked up correct


This sounds like a cold water supply problem that's usually caused by a problem at the water inlet valve. First, remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check 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 helps and best wishes.

Maytag performa PAV2200 - cold water fill does not work, but hot does


Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be checked using a multimeter or ohm meter for continuity. If either solenoid has none, it is defective and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I am attaching a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

We own a older Maytag Washing machine that has worked great over the years. We have been living in IL with our own well water and have found just the cold water to be slow in entering the machine. Now,...


You have to check your faucet coming to the machine. Is there good pressure from the cold pipe, there shd be; maybe a valve not fully open? While you are there clear the screens on your hoses and machine. Check for leaks after refitting.
