Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Hi: My washer will fill anywhere from 1 to about 10 second when I release the start button. I've cleaned screens and water flow seams to be ok. Bypassed pressure switch with no change. What else should I check for?
Thankyou for your help
Should check if there is good pressure at the inlet faucet. If good, then you have to replace your inlet valve, which is easy to do. First check to see if the wires to the valve are connected well.

error code means low water inflow. In this error washer is not filling when the
fill valve opens.
To clear the error please follow the bellow instructions:-
Press the "Stop" button twice with your finger. This cancels the cycle and stops the washer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.Turn the water shut off valves clockwise to stop the water flow to the washer through the supply hoses. Pull the washer away from the wall enough that you can access the hose connections at the back of the washer.
a bucket under the area of the hose connections. Unscrew the hose connections
from the back of the washer. If necessary, use a pair of slip joint pliers to
help start the connections turning until you can turn them by hand. Set the
ends of the hoses inside the bucket.Inspect the screens on the inlet ports on
the back of the washer where the hoses connect. Sediment and other debris can
block these screens, causing fill problems. Clean the screen with an old
the hoses back onto the washer. Look for kinks in the hoses. Kinks cut off
water supply to the washer which causes the FH error code. Once you connect the
hoses, turn the water supply valves counter-clockwise to supply water to the
washer. Move the bucket away from the washer and push the washer back into its
working position.Plug the power cord back into the outlet and start the wash
cycle again. If the FH error code comes up again, call a service repairman. If
the hoses have no kinks and the inlet screens are clean, there is a problem
with either the pressure switch or the flow meter.
