Question about Washing Machines
Tap is turned on and no restrictions of water flow
If you have hard water the restriction may be were the hoses attach to the back of machine. This valve has a very fine screen which becomes clogged with small mineral deposits. You can remove and clean or replace, but it will probably happen again. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Testimonial: "There is no water restrictions and the fine screen is clean. This is happening to two of the same model washing machines. When the panel indicator is showing the hot water is to enter the machine there is no power going to the solenoid."

The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting.

If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting. You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

Based on your description, the selenoid is bad.
The same device feeds both cold and hot water - so locate your machine model number and year.. and look up the replacement incoming water selenoid part number. You will need to purchase it and replace it.
If your machine is under warranty, call their Customer Service line and report the water flow/noise problem.
Please let us know your findings...

Surely you are in a better position to work this out than us! Try ising a hose with a rubber cup connection to fot to your tap.Perhaps even boild up a large container of hot water and carry it to the machine!

The first thing to check is the water inlet screens. Turn the water off and remove the cold water hose from the washer. There is a screen in the valve that keeps sand and debris out of the valve. You can remove the screen and clean it, then flush the hose in a bucket to get any remaining sand out. Reattach the hose and try it again. If that does not work the problem could be one of several things. From the fill valve to the electronic control. Hope that helps

Testimonial: "Thanks so much! Will try it this weekend. "
i am pretty sure its the main board, the easiest way to solve the problem is replace a the main board with a secondhand board, as well as obtaining a bag of spare parts, out a good working machine with faulty seals. You may have faulty seals if the machine is dormant for 3 years. I advise people never use washing powder in their washing machines, just use liquid detergent like Cold Power. the washing powder cakes up in the machine and when harden can be very abrasive and destroy the seals.
