Question about Maytag Neptune MLE2000A Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

3 Answers

Washer won't fill with water on wash cycle.  It just tumbles the clothes.  Then it seems to fill during the rinse cycles since the clothes come out wet, the soap is gone and the clothes seem clean. This machine is almost five years old, so it isn't an installation problem.

    Taps are turned on and pressure is fine. This is a sudden problem. Washer worked fine for five years.

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately, my washer/dryer is inside a space like a closet and I won't be able to try your solution for a couple of weeks. So, I'm going to accept it. I am confident that it will work. Thanks.

Try first unplugging the machine for ten minutes.

If the machine does not reset, and fil with water at the wrong part of the cycle, then that is a defective control board.

If the machine has no water at all getting inside, then check water supply at the back, and test inlet valve and water level switch.

If it is just underfilling, test the water level switch.

Washer won t fill water


pipes maybe clear but is your area wher you live prone to limescaling? where the water pipe/pipes go into the machine there is a switch to shut on/off the flow of water during whatever cycle you want.this might be blocked or sticking. first try to select different cycles and see if any of those fills the machine with water. if no water comes its one of two things. that switch is faulty or communication between the switch and the front consule is at fault.
contact your supplier after trying to go thru a few different cycles.

Kenmore Model 21082000 won't fill during wash cycle


Try checking the lid switch. Sometimes the switch goes bad or the stem breakes and when the lid shuts it will not activate the switch. Usually located on the right side of the dryer. When the lid closes it will allow water to.fill. Washers are easy to fix and the part is cheap. Get it from amazon dont pay the crazy price your dealer wants. Trust me, i just fixed my mothers...

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).


Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

The washer only fills halfway up during rinse cycle only, even on high water setting. it fill completely during the wash cycle.


Has it always done this or just recently? Some washers have lower rinse fills then spray the water on the clothes as it goes through its cycle.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

I have a Miele W1918 washer which has worked perfectly for a decade. Now there is not enough water to fill the tub during the first 'rinse' phase of normal cycles or the 'separate rinse' cycle. The machine...


I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!
