SOURCE: Washer will won't run cold water cycle

Some washing machines allow cold water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.

If you're sure the machine is not working the way it used to--or should--check the following.

  • Is the cold water turned on? If not, turn it on.


  • Is the washer getting hot water but no cold water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.


  • Is there cold water coming through the proper hose? If not, check to see if the screen inside the water-inlet valve is clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve.

  • Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

    P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you fix your problem.

    SOURCE: water barely trickles out for rinse cycle

    Hello,

    It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.

    If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.

    If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

    Thanks

    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.

    How do I get the hot water work for my Fisher & Paykel Eco Smart washer?


    How hot is the water temp in the house that you are in? If the inlet hose to the washer is not hot, then it is not the washing machine.

    HOT and COLD not blending correctly


    The explanation I have in my file is that powder detergent does not dissolve properly in cool and warm wash cycles unless there is some hot water flow. However, I agree with your assessment.

    i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/W10184148/1468990 repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it

    I have tried several times to use cold cycle and the clothes always come out very hot this even happens on the warm cycle. Why wont my machine except cold water?


    this can get indepth but first check your hoses and make sure cold is cold and hot is connected to hot. then check the valves by selecting a hot cycle and check water at filling to see if it was cold or hot, if your unit has a heater make sure you dont select sanitize or very hot. then post correct model and heater info. to advise further

    Should the washer be hot after the rinse cycle?


    Try cycling a cold/cold wash and see how that comes out.. if it comes out hot then your water inlet valve is letting hot water in when it shouldn't.. conversely, try cycling a hot/hot wash and see that it does indeed come out hot... ( quick tests to verify performance)..hope this helps.
