Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Maytag washing machine that will not fill with water. The problem is intermittent, but it fails to fill more often than not. I have good water flow to the machine, and it does not seem to matter if the water level or temperature adjustments are at different settings. I would like to fix it possible, as the unit is only two years old. Any ideas? Thank you. -Dan

Hello Dan, quite a few options to this problem, but my first impression is to switch the water off, clean the sieve in the valve inlet then open the back of the washer, to locate the pressure switch pipe.(It is a 1/4" diam and is clear in colour.).Make sure plug is pulled out of socket. Where the pipe connects onto the actual pressure switch, pull it off and then blow hard into the pipe.(the other end goes to the outer tub.) I think you have a partial blockage at the drum side. You will feel a resistence if it is blocked then all of a sudden it will be free. Put back together and retry.

Hot water not coming into washing machine


The solenoid valve that lets hot water into unit is not opening. Check out the valve itself and the timer cam that feeds power to the cam.

Water won't stop running in at end of cycle, keeps filling up and overflows


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of an intermittent water control valve- sometimes closes too soon (its physical fail position is closed) or sticks open too long.
It needs replacing! Service call ;-0(
Good luck,

My maytag neptune washer will stop working and


HI, this error code is signaling an issue with the fill actions. Your washer seems to be having problems when it try's to fill the tub with water.

First, make sure there's water getting to the washing machine. Make sure the water faucets are open all the way.Check for kinked hoses as well.

If the hoses are fine and, the faucets are fully open, this will confirm a inlet water valve malfunction. you will need to replace this failed component in this case. it has failed.

Fills with Water but, that is it


If a machine spins and drains, but won't agitate, that sounds like a timer control problem. Wires can come loose or burn up, but that's not as common as a failed contact. If the machine won't agitate or spin, that could be a lid switch problem, which is real easy to fix.
