Cannot get Washer to fill with totally hot water

All cycles work properly except the Hot cycle which fills just like the warm cycle alternating input of hot and cold water to get a warm wash. I changed the water thermostat and saw no difference. Will this machine fill with only hot water?

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH7500AWW will not fill from hot water side

check out the hot water tap is on then check out the hot water valve for continuity (poss 27 ohms) then check for blockages in the small inline filter at the valve.

SOURCE: Maytag performa washer hot water runs continuously

Littleone.. please check your instructions.. some washers now dont need Hot water connection to them...they heat their own as part of the efficiency settings on the wash programmes themselves!

SOURCE: washer will not fill with cold water during cycle

it sounds like your mixture valve is faulty on the cold water side. that is the valve where you screw the hose ends on. it needs to be replaced you can purchase one at your local sears, be sure to take your make and model number with you

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.

SOURCE: Admiral Capacity Plus Washer -

This is almost certainly the result of the fill sensor failing. intermittantly

Essentially, the sensor is a bellows device. A pipe is connected to the device and as water reaches the end of the pipe and advances up it, the air pressure in the pipe increases, inflating the bellows. As the bellows inflate, they press on and trip a microswitch inside the sensor and cut the power to the water inlet valve, stopping the water flowing into the machine when it reaches the correct, measured level according to the pressure in the pipe.

Take the top off the machine, if you look down the side you will see a (typically clear plastic) tube about the thickness of a pencil, connected to a circular device about the circumference of a coffee cup and about an inch to two inches thick.
This is the sensor. Problems with it may be:
It has come unclipped from where it should be mounted. The device is VERY sensitive and if it has slipped out of place, over or underfilling is common. (Reposition the sensor, hopefully you can see where it came from!)
The pipe that is connected to it has come off, so the air pressure that the sensor measures is not increasing as the machine fills (push the pile back on and all is well)
The machine has been subject to some trauma (Such as a very uneven load that has made it shake violently. The starting level of the water that is in the bottom of the pipe is now wrong and the pressure sensor is being affected. (Remove the pipe from the sensor, blow down the pile to get any water that should not be there out and then replace the pipe).

Hot/cold cycle stops before filling up


Your washer has a set amount of time to fill. If the flow is low and the time runs out, then all you will get is the amount of water that was able to fill. Check your lines to be sure that they all fully opened.

i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/W10184148/1468990 repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it

Won't complete cycle, stops at rinse. and can't get hot water.


Are you on well water? turn off the cold water to the washer and clean the screen filter out. do not leave filter out.
the machine probably has a cold only final rinse so it won't work properly.

Washer only fills with hot water


Probably a bad water inlet valve. To verify, you would have to check continuity at the valve.

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!
