Cold water valve not working. have checked that water is at outlet of cold water tap. Can you help? thank you


Water Valve Test
When in Diagnostic Mode, the WASH TEMP UP button turns the hot water valve on. The Hot LED is on when the hot valve is on. The WASH TEMP DOWN button turns the cold water valve on. The Cold LED is on when the cold valve is on.

DIAGNOSTIC MODE
Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine. Press and hold the WASH TEMP DOWN button and then the POWER button until the machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up. Release buttons when the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.

There maybe up to 3 filters cold water line. There is sometimes 1 at each end of the water hose itself and also in the valve which can be removed with pliers. (see picture)

Undo the 2 screws at the back of the buttons panel
Undo the connection of the valve
If you are good with a multimeter check that there is about 65 ohms resistance across the terminals of the valve. If not, then replace the valve.
Also sometimes the workings inside the valve can jam shut so replace the valve.

Is it possible to modify the water temps that are preset to the types of cycles? Casual is warm/cold and Heavy Duty is hot/cold. I would like to do cold/cold but it won't let me


You could connect cold to both hot and cold washer connections by using a hose wye fitting . If the hot and cold supply faucets both open together you will have to cap the hot faucet. Hope this helps.

My washing machine would stop and beep and not advance to the next wash cycle and it was taking forever to fill up. I did the diagnostics and found it to be #49 which is a faulty hot or cold water valve. ...


Sorry for the very much delayed response due to site changes which modified the notification system.

Anyway, you should try holding first the WASH TEMP DOWN button then the POWER button until there's a beep. If it doesn't work, use WASH TEMP UP instead.

Make sure the Restart feature is turned on and the Recycle feature is turned off if all else fails. During the diagnostic mode use the WATER LEVEL DOWN button to turn RESTART on by pressing the said button until the LOW WATER LEVEL LED turns on. Use the WATER LEVEL UP button to turn RECYCLE off. The MEDIUM WATER LEVEL LED off indicates RECYCLE OFF. To set these modes in EEPROM the Advance button must be held while selecting Restart or Recycle. Power off the machine thereafter to complete the reset.

You should be able to use the up/down arrow buttons labeled "Wash Temp" to select the temperature after you select the wash cycle type and before you press the start button.

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

No matter what the temp setting is at it only has very hot water


Your water temp is determined by 2 things. First the hook up to your water supply. If you are able to turn off the hot water valve that feeds the unit and then select a cold water only wash, do you get cold water?? If not then someone hooked up the hoses to 2 hot water feeds. If hot and cold feeds are installed right, the second thing is your computer which monitors the incoming temp through the boards atc control and a thermister. If you select cold, and only get a hum and the cold water valve is on, you may have to clean the screens in the valve of any sediment. If no hum, and no cold, dead solenoid on valve, but that would throw an error code usually. All fills are monitored by the board and usually begin with a hot/wrm mix and then changeover to a monitored cold temp , about 70 degrees.

My Atlantis Oversize Capacity Washer is the problem.When I select a Warm/Cold wash the water starts out warm, then kicks into hot water. So then I have to hit the Warm/Cold button over and over as it fill...


The temp is controlled by a thermistor to make sure the warm water is warm. If the incoming cold is too cold, or the incoming hot is not hot enough, it will compensate by turning off the cold until the temp comes up, then it should turn the cold back on. Make sure the hot supply is to the hot water valve. If the hoses are backwards it won't work right either. Or you may have a bad solenoid in the water valve. It's possible for a water valve to work when it's cold, but as electricity runs through it, the solenoid heats up and causes it to open electrically which will close it mechanically and turn the water off. Usually if this is the case it won't open again for at least 10 minutes until the solenoid cools down enough.

Cold water inlet not opening


Check the filter on the cold water inlet first to make sure it is not blocked. Next check the cold water solanoid. Take it out. Clean it, let it dry.
