Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Machine will not produce cold water - only hot and warm. When I turn off the hot water at the wall, cold water comes into the tank, but with the hot water turned on, it only produces warm or hot.

Saeco vienna super automatica coffe maker produces very little coffee and it comes out very slow.


sounds like your pump. When you turn steam knob on, you should hear the pump go bump,bump,bump. When hot water is turned on, you should hear pump run steady.

I have a rheem hot water tank when you turn on the hot water it comes out nice an hot but not even 30 secounds after that the water cools off and it stays as just warm water. I hear the gas kick in to heat...


Could be your thermostat but it might be your inlet dip tube. Your water heater has a plastic pipe that carries the cold water to the bottom of the tank. When you open your tap, it takes the hot water from the top of the tank, the cold goes to the bottem and gets heated. If this tube breaks, or comes loose, it will short circuit the cycle. The tank is hot but as soon as you start using water, cold water comes in at the top and mixes with your hot water, giving you just warm water. If you have room above your tank, you can remove the union on the cold side , screw out the pipe nipple, and look inside and see if there is a tube. If not you can buy one from home depot or lowes for just a few dollars. Also a water heater should be partially drained annually to remove any solids from the bottom, which will allow better heat transfer.If you find bits of plastic when you do, then you know where your dip tube went. Also if you've had a hot water faucet stop up and it looked like plastic there it is.

WE HAVE CHANGED THE THERMOSTATS BOTH OF THEM, WE HAVE CHANGED BOTH ELEMENTS AND THE WATER STILL DOENT GET HOT ENOUGH. WE HAVE TURNED UP BOTH THERMOSTATS AND STILL NOT HOT ENOUGH. WHEN YOUR RUNNING THE HOT...


WE THOUGHT WE NEEDED ANOTHER THERMOSTAR, BUT WHEN WE WERE LOOKING FOR THE PART THE EMPLOYEE ASKED WHAT WAS THE TROUBLE. WE EXPLAINED, HE SAID YOU DEFINATLY DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR TANK AND ASKED IF WE HAD A SINGLE HANDLED FAUCET WITHIN THE HOUSE. NO WE DONT. HE SAID IT SOUNDS LIKE WATER IS MIXING WITH THE COLD WATER THATS THE REASON FOR THE WARM--COLD--WARM WATER. COME TO FIND OUT SINCE WE ARE REMODLING THE BATHROOM, WE HAD BOTH THE HOT AND COLD WATER TURNED ON IN THE SHOWER--BUT WERE PLUGGED OFF AT THE SHOWER HEAD AND THE FAUCET UNTIL THE TILE IS INSTALLED. SOOO ALL MY HUSBAND HAD TO DO WAS TURN OFF THE WATER IN THE SHOWER. NOW WE HAVE PLENTY OF HOT WATER, NO WARM COLD. YEA!!!

No warm or hot water


The easiest possibility is no hot water coming from supply,I have seen the valve turned off,input hose normaly has a filter where it attatches to the machine and they can get clogged.If neither of these solves problem just try hot valve to confirm water supply does work and if so more than likely the valve that hoses are connected to likely source of problem.

HOT WATER NOT COMING INTO MACHINE


lets see hear.what the water fill hoses are connected to is call the water fill valve.when you select a water temp.,electricty will then go to ither water valve coil or both for warm.so if your not getting hot it could be first that the fill screens at the hose at the water valve is blocked .but most of the time thats not true of hot because minerals drop out in the water heater before getting to the water valve,unlike the cold water.so if screen is clean,next would be voltage to the water valve.if its getting voltage but not working then its the water valve.if its not getting voltage then use the wiring diagram to see what componet is before the water valve.may be water selector switch or timer

Hotpoint BWD129 - Wash temperature too high


Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,



Water temperature switch

The water temperature switch directs power to the valve. If there is no power getting to the valve, check the switch according to the wiring diagram for your machine.
Faulty Water Inlet Valve
The water inlet valve is the device that meters water from the supply lines into your wash tub. On domestic washers, there are two lines, one hot the other cold. These valves are susceptible to mineral build-up and sediment deposits. There are two common failure modes:

Failure Mode One: Valve will not open.
If you can verify that the solenoid on the valve body is receiving the requisite voltage and the valve will not open, then it is faulty. Since the solenoids operate independently, it is likely that one side of the valve will work and the other will not. This can produce strand results such as a very hot wash when warm is selected (due to no cold water). Or the reverse in that the wash water is cold when warm is selected. If mineral or hard water deposits are a problem, you may witness a substantial increase in the time required for the tub to fill. This is caused be a decrease in the flow ware of the valve.

Failure Mode Two: Valve opens but will not close.
This is verified by a valve that allows water to flow into the tub even though no power is being supplied to the solenoid. This one is usually quickly diagnosed when the machine begins to overflow and the power plug for the washer is disconnected from the wall. However, this will not stop the water from flowing into the machine. The water must be shut off at the wall. As with the previous failure mode, the variant of this failure mode is that it may take the valve a while to completely bridge the flow of water after the power has been removed from the solenoid.

How to Diagnose?
There are a couple of ways to diagnose a faulty valve. However, there is a simple test that one can perform that will usually let you know if the water inlet valve is faulty.

Scenario:
When set to cold wash and rinse, the unit will not fill. When set to warm wash and cold rinse the washer will fill with hot water only and will fail to rinse. This is a common scenario where the cold water side of the valve does not appear to be contributing to the fill, but the hot water side does. This symptom could be easily reversed where cold water is being supplied, but never hot water.

So, how can the problem be determined? It is as simple as switching the wire harness plugs on the hot and cold side. In the example above where the cold water is never being supplied, the symptoms would be the opposite when the wiring harnesses were switched. So the machine would produce only produce cold when warm or hot is selected. No water should be present when you select cold. This verifies that the timer, wiring and switches are all in working order. Assuming this tests checks out, you simply need to replace the water inlet valve.

Recent Customer Symptoms:
I have a Kenmore Washing Machine. My question is if I set the washer on cold was and cold rinse it will not fill with water but if I set it on hot wash and cold rinse it will fill with Hot water and wash normally but when it comes to rinse with cold no water will fill and will go to the spin cycle assuming that it had filled with water. There is water in the cold water source. Any idea??? I was assuming the timer but not to sure.
