The water inlet valve is probably defective. There's two solenoids on the inlet valve. One controls the cold water, one controls the hot water. This is also known as a "mixing valve" on some washers. There are a few things that can cause this problem:

1. Water pressure on the hot water tap is too low and not closing the solenoid diaphragm all the way (minimum pressure should be between 10-25 psi).
2. The filter screen on the hot water side needs to be cleaned thoroughly.
3. Valve is defective.

If you have tried cleaning the screens, and have never had water pressure problems before, I would bet the valve needs replaced. I could not find an exact match for the model number you provided, but repairclinic.com has Maytag Neptune parts. Double check your model number and use the search feature on the website. There are two water inlet valves listed there. Depending on which one you have, it can cost between $30 and $74. I hope this helps you. Post back if you have any further questions.

Water will not shut off on its own even after the entire wassh cycle is done


There is a water pressure sensor that can tell how full the washer is. This is probably the culprit, as the water is now just cascading into the exhaust system. What causes the thing to stay on is a collapsed microswitch in the sensor biscuit, or the tube leading to it is clogged. Have this level switch looked at.

hi there,

you have a door latch problem. the reason you can still push on the button is because this particular washer has a time delay function. i would recommend taking a look at the latch itself and possibly the wax motor that runs the latch.

Have you changed your door latch wax motor yet... If you have the brown actuator pin then you want to chuck that wax motor out of there quicker than spit! You want the redesigned wax motor with the black actuator pin. I know of folks where the wax motor failure caused the timer and /or water valves to act up... See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.
