Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
The first place to check is the water inlet valve solenoids. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference.
The second possibility would be a faulty water level switch. This is a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water. Check the plastic tube for any damage or obstruction. The switch can be tested using a meter in the same manner as the solenoids.
These are a couple of likely causes. Sure sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
