Question about Maytag Washing Machines
My understanding of the problem is that only hot water comes in when the machine calls for hot and cold water. This implies that the cold water valve is not working and you can find it out by interchanging
the wiring of the valve solenoids. That is, connecting the wires of one
valve solenoid to the other and vice-versa then restart the rinse
function with the machine set to call for both cold and hot water.
The wires for the cold water valve solenoid are now connected to the known good hot water valve solenoid. Hot water should fill in when the machine calls for cold water which will confirm that the cold water valve is indeed not activating, especially when cold water does not fill in when the machine calls for hot water now that the solenoid wiring are interchanged.
Check the wiring connection of the cold water valve solenoid to the timer/control if hot water does not flow in when the machine calls for cold water but cold water flows in when the machine calls for hot water now that the solenoid wiring are interchanged. Make sure the wires are intact and the connections are snug fit. Replace the timer if the above troubleshooting procedures do not find any problem with the valves and the wiring.
Please indicate the exact model number of the machine for the specific procedure on how to access the water inlet valve assembly.
