You say that you are getting hot water instead of cold on rinse... Does that mean that when you select hot water wash you get cold?
If so, the machine 'thinks' it is giving water that is the wrong temp.
You may be sure that the hoses are the right way round, but if the water temp is opposite to what it should be, there's obviously something amiss!
Try swapping the hoses and see what happens...If the hoses are 'right', it could be that the water inlet valves are 'wrong'. It could be that the 'cold' wires are on the 'hot' inlet valves!! & vice versa
Good luck....Nomess

F3 E2 error code on my Maytag washing machine


I just had the same problem with my MayTag washing machine - F3 & E2 error codes.
I cleaned out the drain trap then proceeded to remove the top and rear panels to check the Temperature Sensor. The sensor was tested with an Ohms meter and found to be working properly.
I went over the wiring from the Temp Sensor and found that both black wires had been 'cut' under one of the zip ties near the bottom of the washer.
I had to reconnect them with marretts and presto; the washer works perfectly again. If you encounter this same problem - be diligent in going over the wiring. I missed it the first time around.
It's an easy fix for anyone who can strip a wire of the plastic coating.
Good luck :)

On my Maytag Washing Machine...Sometimes my water selector works... sometimes it doesnt. Sometime hot will come out when set on cold and sometimes cold will come out when set on hot.. Sometimes it works...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Just reading this it sounds like the water temp selector switch is acting up. You did not provide a model number so this is just an outright guess to help you. Try this if you have the button type start mashing the buttons several times between temps. Do it with conviction. Your cycling the switch to unstick or clean off the contacts in the switch. If the cycle temp switch fails while doing this; changing the switch was the next recomendation to correct the temp problem. You should cycle the switch at least 30 times methodically. Press, change temp, press repeatedly. Then check your cycle water temps for hot and cold as selected. Depending upon model you could have a problem with the water inlet valve. I will wait for a response before commenting on that.

If you need specific model information I need your Model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Washer is rinsing with hot wateer nomatter what temp. setting is used. I have tried to switch hoses twice now, no difference in rinse but now on correct wash temp.


The MAH5500 series washers have automatic temperature control functions so the washer can control water temp regardless of water heater settings and other factors. I would say either your definition of "hot" is not truly "hot" (over 110 degrees), or the washer's ability to sense has failed (which would also affect fill temp on "wash" fills also). If someone has worked on the washer recently, maybe they reversed the wiring to the water valves inside the machine? ATC temps are as follows: Cold 70-90, warm 90-110, and hot is unregulated at 110 degrees and up. These are normal temp ranges for ATC controlled machines, and are completely safe for fabrics.

Maytag washer/hot and cold water


Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.

Maytag Washer Problem


Have you tried starting the wash cycle at several different time settings? Especially the shortest time setting, just before the start of the first spin? If it works at another setting, it's possible the dial/switch mechanism is worn and not making contact at your usual setting. In any case, a spray of a good electrical contact cleaner spray (NOT WD40 or similar) - with the power lead UNPLUGGED - sprayed into the switch mechanism might help. You would need to remove an access panel to get at the switch mechanism.

MAYTAG LAT9235AAE TOP LOAD WASHER WILL NOT WORK


Pt, Should be a yellow wire from the water level switch according to the diagram I have. See if it has 120V to motor when full. Just take it to ground. Same with the lid switch in closed position, it shows here as yellow, but could be grey, these diagrams are not always accurate. I think you have a level switch or lid switch problem. Check for voltage to the motor when it should be agitating. Catriver..post back.
