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

Im installing a Maytag 412 top loading washing machine. Im not sure if it is the top input for hot or cold? Could you please help. Thanks, Tim


Without the complete model number, I'll have to inform you like this.
If it's red it's the hot inlet. Blue is the cold. If not colored. Normally the case has and H and a C stamped into them next to the corresponding inlet.
If all else fails do this. Hook up the water lines to either one. Now with both water lines hooked up and both the cold and hot water turned on. Plug the machine in. Use the selector on the console and set it to cold wash. Turn on and let it have time to turn hot ifit's going to. Feel the water temp. If it's warm or hot, swap the lines. If not, you have them correct. If the water is warm or hot, swap the connections. Good luck!

Maytag washer/hot and cold water


Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.

Washer fills only with hot water


Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still slow, replace valve.
