Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

1 Answer

Washing machine I put the white water tape onto the threads coming from the washing machine and it is still leaking when I turn on the hot hose and the cold hose. I am thinking that it is mainly leaking from the top threaded outlet.

EW1200 is rinsing in hot water how do we change that

Hot wash, hot rinse is for 'whites'. Cold wash, cold rinse is for 'colors'. Warm wash, cold or warm rinse is for 'permanent press'. Check your settings to see if you have these options. Double check the hoses, put the machine on cold fill and feel the hoses.
Has someone worked on the machine and possibly put the wires on the solenoids wrong? Easy mistake to make.

Hot water won't run into washer

G'day. The hoses from your laundry taps hook up to your machine onto what are called solenoids. These are like electrical taps. The machine decides when to turn these on and off and in what order via the timer and depending on what modes are selected. Generally there is a hot and cold solenoid. If you have both hot and cold hooked up to your machine, you can simply swap these hoses around (put the hot tape on the cold solenoid and vis-versa) Then when you select cold, you'll actually be getting hot. Some new machines heat water internally like dishwashers, and they only have one solenoid. Again if you put the hot tape only on, you will get hot water with cold selected. In both solutions you are losing the option for cold or hot cycles with a click of a button - now you must swop hoses...

Hot Water pipe is not connected. Cold water is ...

The best way to stop your situation is to connect the hot hose to the hot tap. A hardware store should have a female cap you can screw onto the back of the machine, or get a male plug, same thread as a tap and plug the end of the hot hose. Elevating the end of the hot hose may help..It's normal for water to flow out the hose as you've described...Good luck...Nomess

Help!!! water leaks from hose of my new haier hwd1000!!!

If water is leaking from the pressure hose itself, go buy new hoses at the hardware store.

If it is the connection between the hose and the machine, you can add hose gaskets and wrap the threads twice in plumber's tape. This is a thin white slightly stretchy tape that you wrap around the threads before you screw on the connector.

Hooking up the cold and hot water in back of the washing machine

In a word Yes!!

The machine will fill with Hot water to rinse and if that water is as hot as the normal supply your clothes will shrink and the colours will run.

You need the hoses and the supply to the hoses to be correct so that when you put it on a cool wash it fills with cold water and brings the temperature up to the right level.

Bringing in hot water will kill the soap powders action.

Also the machine adds hot and cold water to make sure that it gets a correct balance for other programs

If you are not sure how they are connected then look at the back of the machine, there should be either a H and C stamped into the backplate or the inlets are Red and (White or Blue).

If the hoses coming from the fawcets are the same colour then take one off the machine place the end in a bucket and turn the fawcet on , if it does not get hot then its the cold one so then make sure it goes back onto the C or the White connector

Hot water hook up leaking

hi bigger
turn off the valves disconnect the hose check the threads on the water intake valve(bit the hose screws onto) are not damaged by cross threading. then try wrapping silk plumbing thread tape(available at all plumbong outlets including B&Q,Homebase etc.) around the threads(wind it clockwise and give it plenty)then check the rubber washer at the end of the hose is not damaged of missing and reconnect the hose

Hooking my washing machine to the kitchen faucet

See that your hose does not have any clogging in the filter screens; connect to the cold. careful with the threadings; turn on faucet & check for any leaks........start washing. Will tell you later how to get a manual. Regarding hot water, your machine can heat it if it has provision.

Water problems

If the washer doesn't fill properly, or if only one temperature of water fills the tub, something is probably keeping water from entering the machine or it's draining before the tub fills completely. Set the controls to the first wash cycle, and then try each water temperature setting. If both hot and cold water seem to be entering the washer with good pressure, water may be draining out prematurely during the fill cycle, through siphoning action. Be sure the drain hose's connection to the standpipe is at least 34 inches above the floor (otherwise, discuss the problem with a plumber). An air gap between drain hose and stand pipe that prevents backflow is also good to have. If hot works but cold doesn't, or vice versa: 1) Be sure both the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. 2) Be sure the supply hoses are not kinked. 3) Turn off the faucets. Unscrew the hoses from the faucets and drain them into a bucket. Hold the bucket under the faucets and test them to make sure they both work and have plenty of pressure (see HERE for information on replacing faucets). Screw the hoses back onto the faucets. 4) Unscrew the hoses from the inlet valves and clean the filter screens just inside them; these may be clogged. To do this, pry out the screens with a screwdriver (this can be difficult; the screens may be inside the valves), flush them under running water, then put them back into the hose. If the screens look defective, replace them. Then screw the hoses back onto the valves. Be careful not to cross-thread the hose threads when screwing them back onto the valves. 5) Call an appliance repairperson; there may be a defective inlet valve or a problem with the controls.

My washer won't fill

If your washing machine was working just fine, and now it won't fill with water or spin, try this first. This is what was wrong with mine, a pressure hose had a clog in the line. First take off the front panal of washer, then connected to the load size dial (small to large load) there will be a clear plastic tube. This tube had what just looked like a stain in it, but in fact it was pluged up and was the whole problem. If the washer already thinks it's full of water, it's not gonna fill or spin..........
