Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Water is pulsating entering a Maytag MTW5821TW0. It's doing it in the cool warm and hot mode not in the cold. Is the water inlet valve or water temperature switch the problem?

Check the inlet screen on the hot water hose at the inlet to the machine and the shutoff valve too. It's possible it's partially plugged.

SOURCE: Water temperature problem

Chief Walley, you have a temperature control board that sits right behind the timer. A thermistor senses the water and sends the info to this board. The thermistor sits at the water injector. The board may be your problem, I have seen many like this. Keep in mind that the target temp for cold is 75 degrees. If your incomming water is higher than this, you are going to get a warm fill, which they think is cold. Without being there, I would go after the board. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: only cold water goes into

First off, are you sure you don't have the water lines feeding into the washer crossed ( as in cold line is going to the hot inlet and visa versa) .. secondly, are you sure your hot water is really hot? Hope that helps....

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

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.

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.

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.

No water going in


Hello mariel_black,

If you have good water pressure at the washer source valves I would shut both the Hot and Cold water source supply valves off then remove the water inlet hoses at the back of the washer and inspect the water inlet screens for sediment blockage.
The washer inlet screens look like this;

cdb49e0.jpg

If the above items check OK reconnect washer supply hoses and turn on water supply valves. If we are talking about a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW washer then I would go into Service Mode Board Output Test page 16 of the Service Manual and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves and see if the machine water inlet solenoids operate and release water into the wash tub. I will summarize how to get into Service Mode and perform the check of the Hot/Cold washer inlet solenoids.

Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key the display will read something like “ot” the lid will lock. Now press Spin Only key this will turn on the cold water valve, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Spin Only key to shut the cold water valve off.

Now press Normal key, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Normal key to shut the valve off or the off key to get out of Service Mode. If you don’t hear either Hot/Cold water inlet valve operate then you have a bad solenoid or loss of 120VAC applied to that solenoid valve and more troubleshooting may need to take place and possible replacement of the washer water inlet valve assembly. Post back if you have questions.

Maytag neptne fav 6800 aww does not fill wiht hot water. works fi


Hi Big Wags

I would remove both water hoses at the back of the washer and check the Hot & Cold inlet screens for a clog/restriction.

They look like this;

16bd3b6.jpg

You can turn the individual valves on in service mode using the procedure on page 16 of the Service Manual.

To enter Service Mode; press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”.

Now go into board output test by pressing the Delicates key.

Now press the Normal button to open the Hot Water Valve you can press the Normal button again to turn off the valve or just press the Off button to end the process. Or just use the wash cycle to toggle the H/C water valves on. I like folks to become familiar with using Service Mode and the SM.

If the inlet screens are free of debris and you have good water pressure from your source valve then you may have to replace the valve assembly Here is a link to check for FAV6800AW PARTS Sears Parts Direct. Shout back If you have questions. Rich

Water temperature


It sounds like your water inlet valve (also known as a Mixing Valve on some washers) HOT solenoid is sticking open. When you select either a hot or cold wash cycle, separate solenoids open or close to allow only cold water to enter the washer on the cold wash cycles and hot water to enter on the hot cycles. If the hot solenoid stays open, you will have hot water mixing with your cold water during the cold cycles. The result is warm water. I would recommend you replace the water inlet valve. This is a job the average DIYer can do. Please post back with your model number and I can assist you with locating a part number and/or give you specifics on how to access the valve to replace it.

Water filling


Before you replace the water valve itself, take the hot water hose off and inspect the screen at the valve inlet. There could be a lot of grit restricting it. If the screen is clear, than I would be in agreement with you that it is the valve itslef..hope this helps you.
