Sounds like you have a bad fill valve on the cold water side. If your hoses are not clogged, then remove the hose and check the cold water inlet going into the machine for clogs. There is a screen that can trap mineral deposits and/or rust. If you have well water or hard water, they can become clogged easily. Sometimes you can clean them out and they will work just fine. Most of the time, however, you will need to replace the fill valve. Make sure you unplug the machine and turn the water off. The valves are electronically controlled. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: maytag performa washer hot/cold cycles reverse, hooked up correct

This sounds like a cold water supply problem that's usually caused by a problem at the water inlet valve. First, remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.

SOURCE: I have a kenmore elite H3 washer. The cold water

Check the inlet valve solenoid wires for resistance with an ohms meter. The cold and hot solenoids should have close to the same resistance. My washer had a weak solenoid causing the hot water valve to close after 4 or 5 seconds. While checking the solenoid wires for resistance with the ohms meter, I noticed the cold side had 51 ohms but the hot side only 8 ohms. Hope this helps.

How do i test the aqua stop is working as i am not getting water in to the washer

You either have a Block of the HOT WATER LINE (where the hose screws into the Washer in the back of the Washer, Bad selector Switch or Circuit Board. Change the Selector to COLD and does it fill up? If it does, then change to HOT. If the water complete shuts off, then you need to disconnect the HOT LINE and then check the Filter and check the Water Flow of the hose. Hope this helps....

What does code f 20 mean

usually it's the water valve needs to be replaced,best thing is to remove the bottom panel,look for the diagnostics paper and put it back for future repairs,either taped to the bottom inside panel or look around inside cabinet usually on right hand side taped to right wall,it will tell you what the code is and look up how to put into diagnostics,if hot and cold water are coming in to slow or no water on hot or cold shut it down,unplug it,shut the water valve off going to washer,remove the water lines going to washer and mark them so hot goes back to hot and cold back to cold on the washer water valve.when you have the hoses off turn the house valve back on to make sure water is coming through both lines,the problem could be the house valve so you want to eliminate that.if good look into the washer valve,if you see alot of sedement in the screens change out the washer water valve,if all looks good on some machines there is a flow meter that could cause this code to come up,if water is coming in strong and screens look clean on water valve i would change the flow meter.go here and see your parts
one is valve 4 is flow meter hope this helps

Kenmore eco cycle front load washer. error E70 displays and stops washer. What does E70 mean?

You should check the model number of the washer. If the model number starts 417, then the washer was made by Frigidaire. In that case, the E70 error indicates that cold water is not being detected at the washer inlet sensor.

In some cases, this could be due to connecting the hot water line to the cold water inlet (and the cold water to the hot water inlet). Make sure that the cold water shut-off valve is open. Try swapping the water hoses (close the shut-off valves first). Try new hoses; some anti-flood hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect damage. Thus you won't have sufficient water coming into the washer. (You can check this yourself. Turn off the shut-off valves. Disconnect the hoses from the washer and put the ends into a bucket. Then open the shut-off valves and check the water flow.) While you have the hoses off, check for debris in the inlet filters.

If the hoses are fine, you probably have a problem with the washer's inlet valve or the reed switch that measures incoming water. The inlet valve should be replaced if you find that only hot water enters the washer.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your washer for more information. It will be on the inside of the door opening (probably at the top).

I am having difficulties replacing the water valve on my maytag top load washer, model mav208daww. How do I get to it?


Disconnect power cord or trip circuit breaker. Unplug the water hoses after turning off the water supply. Using a screwdriver, release and lift up the washer top panel. Using needle nose pliers, disconnect the wires from the old valve, and undo the hose that feeds water into the tub. From the back of the washer, I undo the screw holding the valve in place. Remove the old valve. Connect electrical wires and hose to the new inlet valve before installing the valve. Screw the valve back in place and reattach the hot and cold water hoses, close the top of the washer, turn on the water supply, and connect power back.

Below a diagram. The valve is part 14. Click on the picture to enlarge.

Where is the filter located and how often do you have to clean it?

Most washers have screen filters where the hot and cold water lines connect. The condition of your water supply would indicate how often you clean these screens. If you notice a decrease in water flow into the tub you should clean the screens.

Shut off the hot and cold water supply lines.
Drain the pressure from the lines by turning the timer dial through the fill cycle in both hot and cold water modes.
Remove the hot and cold water lines from the back of the washer.
Look for a screen inside the hose coupling or the washer inlet.
Remove screen and clean using a wire brush. If screen is damaged get a replacement at a hardware, or home improvement store.

Where is the filter located on my hoover AL120 washing machine?

i assume you're having problems with (probably hot) water intake into your machine. if so- either hot or cold-or both). there are 'semi-circle' mesh inserts at both your hot and cold water connectors on the back of the machine- you'll need to move your machine, if needed to allow access to these connections (where your hoses screw on). then, if you have shut-offs for the water supplies to your washer, turn them off! expect a little leakage from the hoses! if no shutoffs- turn off main water supply and open up an outside faucet, until it drains down! you may want to unfasten the water lines to the washer, and keep them elevated for a while until the water drains from them! (after doing the previous things!) you'll see- in the inlet s a mesh screen, see if they're 'crudded up' with mineral deposits- if so, get a hat-pin or some thing similar and pry them out- use an old toothbrush to loosen any deposits you see clogging them, and tap them to remove deposits! perhaps place them in a vinegar solution to help dissolve them! when they're clean- replace them- re-connect water lines- hand tight- or a little more- don't break the nylon outside threaded connectors on the back of the washer, or your looking at a more expensive and tedious job!
turn your shut-offs on, or your outside main shut-off, and hopefully, your drum will fill with great vigor!!
don't forget your outside hose faucet, if you needed to 'drain' it down! if 'outflow'- drainage is the problem then it could be a small article of clothing, or junk, in your drain pump- could also be a failed drain pump- you didn't specify whether it was input or output. just guessed!
good luck!!

Mold and smell from Maytag washer

The mold will be growing in the upper parts of the agitator basket above the water line. Spray these areas with a bleach/water mixture using a spray bottle. Turn off the hot water valve to your washer. Disconnect the hose connected to this valve. Connect a leak free garden hose to the valve. Connect a garden sprayer to the other end of the garden hose. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Use the garden sprayer to rinse and remove the mold. Be careful to keep all of the water in the agitator basket. Turn off the hot water valve. Reconnect the hose from the washer to this valve. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Run a wash cycle with an empty load.

Washer will run with hot water only ( amana heavey duty washer)

What if you swap the hot and cold lines on the back of the washer? Does the problem remain the same? Only you get cold water OK but not hot? The test I suggested is to verify if the inlet valve for both hot abd cold are operating and by switching the hoses, the problem should switch with them if the inlet valve is not opening when it is supposed to, Please provide details on the make and model of your washer so I can look at the control circuitry to determine how the inlet valves are operated.
