Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?

If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.

If this doesnt cure it, check that the water supplies where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly.

Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valves on the machine, but check out their wiring/connectors back to the control board/timer switch first before condeming the solenoid valves.

My maytag washer model lat8006aae hot water flows in slow. I reversed water supply lines, no change, replaced water strainers and new water lines, still slow flow. supply lines, inlet water valve


It is possible the hot cold switch is flawed and stuck on mix of hot and cold I would have the inlet valve checked with a multi meter they can also check it for u at most appliance parts stores

Hot water barely comes out,


If you switched the feed hoses over and the problem reversed itself, cold has gone from fast to slow useing the hot water pipe and hot from slow to fast useing the cold water pipe then this would indicate a fault in the water supply from the hot pipe. What sort of pressure is coming from the hot pipe when not connected to the machine but filling in to a bucket? Are there any shut off valves before the pipe that supplies the hot water? Are they fully turned on? Any kinks in the feed pipe for the hot water? Has the hot water feed pipe collapsed internally? Change the pipe to check this and not just at the machine side.

Cold waeter inlet (somewhere besides the shut off valve) very slow. checked hose and shut off, screen not blocked..


hi, are you refering to your machine not producing cold water? If so then you might wont to check your main water pressure from the inlet hose first to ensure that pressure isnt the cause of the decrease in water flow. If pressure is ok then the problem will most likely be a faulty Inlet Solinoid valve being clogged due to tiny particals in the water causing the internal diaphragm of the valve to stick. Worst case scenario is your control module is faulty and is not sending adequate voltage to the solinoid terminals, hope this helps.

Cold water won't flow fast. Hot water only is fine warm water is slow and cold water almost nothing. Cleaned filter etc Thank you


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The best way is to explain this is like this the washing machines water inlet valve has a solinoid for the hot and a solinoid for the cold and when one of these start to fail the will slowly close untill the solinoid will no longer allow the valve to open so this is why your water pressure is getting low going into the machine for the cold side ok?
So what you are going to have to do is to replace the faulty water valve solinoid.
I would really suggest to replace the valve as a whole it ensures that you have a new part.ok?
Hope this helps if yo need any further dissassembly help let me know and i can assist you if needed
Best regards Mike..

Hot water fills very slow(30 MIN OR MORE TO FILL) good water flow from spicket to washer, screens are clear. sewems to be something with the washer its self


Might be a bad inlet valve. To confirm, swap the hot and cold hoses to your washer so that the cold water feeds the hot water connection and the hot water feeds the cold water connection. Turn off both hot and cold water faucets. Set the washer for a warm water wash. Turn on the cold water faucet, and check the flow. Then turn off the cold water faucet, and turn on the hot water faucet and check the flow. If the cold water flow fill slowly, then the problem is with the inlet valve.

It an easy part to obtain from an appliance supply house. To install disconnect the hoses to the back of the machine, and remove the back panel to get access to the valve. Should only take a couple of minutes to remove and install. Hope this helps you.

Slow cold water flow won't go back to full flow


I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.

Very slow cold water flow


soundslike either your cold water supply is not turned on all the way or the inlet valve is clogged w/debris. try removing cold water hose and checkin inside the valve, sometimed youll be able to remove sediment adn debris from valve from screen, if thats not the case youll need to replace the vavle itself
