Question about Maytag Bravos MTW6600T Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a new Maytag Bravo. when i program for cold water wash, i still get hot water! I did check the hoses, water leaks, the handels turned on. Does the machine just decide what water for the load? I haven't a new washer for more years than I can remember. Any help? Thanks Pam

Hi Pam,
It's tempting to believe that the machine decides, but alas, it doesn't . It is not even as intelligent as a toaster. As a matter of fact, it won't be offended if you use profanity with it. I've tested the theory.
OK. Here is what may have happened. Very often, when a house is built. the Hot and cold water pipes get reversed. Probably because of dyslexia among some plumbers. So one thinks he has connected water correctly when he doesn't. Switch the hoses on at one end or the other. And see how it goes. I've had a number of service calls on this issue over the years myself and that was always the cause.
I hope this helps. Best Regards,
Mark

I have the maytag bravo quiet series 300 and recently after the cycle is done the led reads "HC" which was not there before when the washer was done w/a cycle. Can you tell me what this...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses", in the Installation Instructions.

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

I cannot get just cold water to do a batch of clothing, it will only do hot water brand new machine


could be the water valve part number 22003245 for maytag neptune washer,it's a round 115 bucks,also you might want to shut the water down, disconnect the cold water hose and make sure it's not the house shut off valve that's bad or the hose is bad, turn the water back on and see if the water comes out of hose,check the screen in the hose if it has one,could be blocked with junk and check the opening of the cold water side of the valve to see if anything is plugged up in it that can be cleaned out,the final rinse on all washers use cold water so you can't use it with just the hot water

Water leaking into tub of Maytag la9806


Check the solenoids at the valve. Use a multimeter or ohmmeter to check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I'll attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer is leaking while it is just setting still.


The first thing that I would check, is the hot & cold water hoses, that connect in the back of the washer, to see if they are tight. If they are tight and still leaking from there, then the rubber washer, inside the brass fitting part needs replaced. If that doesn't help, then disconnect the power, and water hoses, then turn the washer over and check the water hose underneath, to see if its leaking. One of these hoses has to be the problem.

Water flows in cold side of water valve and out hot side valve


It seems unlikely that something went wrong just from moving it unless it got banged up!
It sounds like you may have stripped the hot side.
I'm assuming the water is going in the cold side and out the hot side and out the back.
If this is so and you are happy with just cold water try this:
Go to a Plumbing Store and buy a cap for the leaking intake...if it still leaks you can try soldering the two together!
I hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!

Mold and smell from Maytag washer


The mold will be growing in the upper parts of the agitator basket above the water line. Spray these areas with a bleach/water mixture using a spray bottle. Turn off the hot water valve to your washer. Disconnect the hose connected to this valve. Connect a leak free garden hose to the valve. Connect a garden sprayer to the other end of the garden hose. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Use the garden sprayer to rinse and remove the mold. Be careful to keep all of the water in the agitator basket. Turn off the hot water valve. Reconnect the hose from the washer to this valve. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Run a wash cycle with an empty load.
