OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!

driers work by running cold water down the back plate of the machine so the hot damp air condence's on to it. It works on the same principle as your bathroom mirror, because its colder than the air around it the moistier in the air condence's on to it. Most machines use a seperate inlet valve from the cold water to do this, they are proned to rub against the back of the drum.Take the top cover off the machine and check the hose's from the cold inlet onto the back of the machine you'll probably find a hole worn in it.

I have a similar Hotpoint model to this, that does something very similar now and again, usually when trying to set a delayed start.
The only way I have found to "fix" it is to turn the machine off for at least 5 minutes, and then try again.
Hope this helps.

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!
