Both hot and cold water connections are located on a solenoid valve exactly where the water inlet hoses connect this may be the cause if these are ok then the problem may be a hole in the tub or a DAMAGED TUB SEAL

Bosch washer #2460 signas that water tap is closed, checked the hoses and screens


I am not sure why but there are 2 posts for your question. This is a duplicate of my original answer:
If you have checked the hoses and screens then the most probable failure is the inlet water valve. I suspect that one of the electrical water valve solenoids has failed. If you using cold water try a warm or hot wash. If your using hot or warm try a cold wash. I am not sure on this washer if there is a mixing valve but may front loading washers have mixing valves that mix hot and cold water simply to help dissolve the HE type soaps. If changing wash temp makes no difference then a continuity check for inlet water valve coil resistance will have to be performed with an inexpensive ohm meter. If there is no continuity the solenoid has failed and the inlet water valve will have to be replaced.

This unit appears to have 2 inlet water valves one for hot and cold and one for just cold that is used for diluting soap. You will need to check all 3 solenoids for continuity. The inlet water valves are items 5 and 6 of this picture:

My washer will not work. It will not fill unless the washer is on warm warm, hot warm anything but cold. Otherwise I get NO water. It will spin. But I can only get hot water. Not even warm water.


One of two things, easy one first, the cold water inlet screen on the back of the machine is clogged preventing cold water from entering,or more likely the mix valve has gone bad (the cold water solenoid) replacing the mix valve is not hard on these for a doit your selfer and the parts are less than $ 50.00

Top Load Ultimate Care 2 Just below the lid in


This problem is commonly caused by a water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve) leaking by. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust or calcified deposits can accumulate in the inlet valve and cause it not to close properly. Usually when they start leaking, you need to replace them. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve:

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement valve is 285805.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Leaking water


When your Maytag top load washing machine leaks water, you will need to check the following parts until you find where the leak is coming from.




The water valve: The first place you need to check is behind the washer. Check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
Check for pinholes or cracks on the plastic body of water mixing valve.



Remove the front panel : The next thing you need to do, is to remove the front panel so you could see the tub and the hoses.
Set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on so it could start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling.
Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.


The pump : If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.


The stem & seal : Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank.
When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water will leak down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110.

Getting hot water only into the tub. Is that a bad mixing valve? Where can I get one for a VERY old Maytag Washer?


The cold water valve could be faulty. It's quite possible that the valves haven't changed. If you don't need hot water put the HOT hose on the COLD tap and wash on 'hot' or 'warm' you'll need to rinse on hot or warm or the machine wont open the 'hot' valve which is now delivering cold water!!!! Enjoy.........Nomess

Possible Mixing valve Problem


I would pull the lines off the back and check the inlet filter on the hot and cold sides of the water inlet and clean the screen style filter. If you just use cold is the water cold if the cold water valve was bad then you would get no cold wate when set to cold.

Internal leak on a kenmore top load washer


Yes, very likely is a bad water inlet valve allowing water to leak past it into the drum. Really not a difficult repair with a little help.

Washer Fills HOT WATER ONLY


If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.
