    My Maytag Neptune has the same problem. When I start the wash warm water will run in for ten seconds, then it will turn to extremely hot and stay hot. I usually wash on warm and rinse on cold. When I put it on the cold selection, it works. But not on warm. This has happened since day 1, I called service rep. out and he told me that this is how the machine was suppose to work. That there was nothing wrong with it.

Change the water valve again ,you most likely got a bad one.The odds of there being no cold water after a new valve is almost impossible.You can test the valve to make sure its working before you go to buy another one.

I have a 14 year old Neptune that run great except now no hot water.


There's a fill valve combination on most washers. On the simpler, cheaper models they're simple to change.

It's where the hoses connect, it's usually plastic, and there is a hot and a cold valve in the assembly. Hot opens for hot water, cold opens for cold water, and both open for warm water. apparently the solenoid valve on the hot water side has failed and the unit needs to be replaced.

Getting hot water only into the tub. Is that a bad mixing valve? Where can I get one for a VERY old Maytag Washer?


The cold water valve could be faulty. It's quite possible that the valves haven't changed. If you don't need hot water put the HOT hose on the COLD tap and wash on 'hot' or 'warm' you'll need to rinse on hot or warm or the machine wont open the 'hot' valve which is now delivering cold water!!!!

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

My Maytag Neptune does not dispense hot water. Just a trickle. Warm and cold are OK


I'm not a repairman, only a "doityourselfer". Try some or all of the following:

1. Check water valve to see if it full open.
2. Check the hot water hose inlet on the back of the machine. Look for a strainer that may be clogged in the hose inlet (turn water valve off first).
3. Check hose for kinking.
4. With the hose disconnected from the washing machine, try running some hot water through the hose into a bucket just to verify the water is available.
5. With machine set to hot water wash, start a cycle and listen for the hot water solenoid to "click" when the machine is started (some solenoids are louder than others so listen carefully). If water begins to trickle in when you here the click then the solenoid is probably working properly.

Maytag Neptune MAH7500AWW will not fill from hot water side


check out the hot water tap is on then check out the hot water valve for continuity (poss 27 ohms) then check for blockages in the small inline filter at the valve.
