Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Check if hot and cold both do not work? Do you hear a click when you start the wash cycle? If one temperature works and the other will not it should be the water valve solenoid. If you hear a click that could be the start of the water valve solenoid (good sign). If you do not you will need to remove the back of the unit and check with a volt meter to see if the voltage is applied to the solenoid connector. The water solenoid is back where the water hoses connect or follow the inside hose to where it spliced into the hose inlet. The washer has few sections. The Controller Circuit Board (controls the timing), Drum, Transmission, and three Water Valve solenoids (hot and cold and drain). My bet is on the solenoid, if the cold water works and the hot does not you may be able to swap the connector or solenoid to see if the condition changes. If not you may need to use a volt meter to test if the voltage is present when the wash cycle starts. If so make sure you have water pressure going into the washer. Then replace the valve after turning off the water and draining the hose. If you do not have voltage you will need to use the schematics to trace the voltage back to the control board. It could be the control board but I do not think it is.
