Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
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.
