Question about Maytag Neptune MAH7500WH Front Load Washer
Here's a new one....the hot (only hot) water stays on, even if unplugged! We had to shut off the supply.
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.
