Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

On our Model LAT9635AAE washing machine when cycle is on cold/cold the water fills at a very slow flow. If (while water flowing on cold) the water temp switch is switched to warm and back to cold the cold water resumes at normal flow. I thought that the cold water solenoid valve was bad until discovering that the temp switch being switched to warm and back to cold will restore normal cold flow. Can you point me in right direction??? Thank you, John Keen

You have a bad fill (mix) solenoid valve. The valve in the solenoid is hanging up and by switching it back and fourth between hot and cold its just working its way to the proper position..You were on the right track.....

Why is the water not filling in my washing machine


There are screen filters at the inlets on the machine where water hoses connect. When they get clogged the water flow is slowed.

Water flow slow on rinse cycle


the rinse cycle is almost always slower because it is only using cold water - if you try cold wash, cold rinse, they should be the same flow- cold is used for rinse because it reduces suds better

Slow cold water flow won't go back to full flow


I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.

Rinse cycle water flows out to a trickle- regular wash cycle flows normal- water valve?


Flows out where , drain or into machine ? If into machine , Most washers have a cold rinse into machine . If your using hot fill and you get a trickle , then problem is a clogged screen at the valve or a bad water valve .

Very slow cold water fill, why?


First make sure that you have adequate water flow from the hose bib coming from the wall. You can do this by turning off your cold water connection at the wall, then disconnect the cold water hose. Then turn the faucet on and make sure the water flows freely. The most common reason for your problem is a clogged screen where the cold water hose connects to the back of the washer. To check this, disconnect the cold hose from the back of the washer and clean the small screen inside the cold water inlet on the washer.

Just a trickle of water during rinse cycle


HI thanks for your question. the cold water valve either has a clogged screen or a faulty water valve. remove the cold water hose and clean out the screen, try again. could be all you have to do. if its acting the same. replace the water valve. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.

check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid
