Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9706

1 Answer

Is there a water line filter in the machine?

I have a Magtag Dependable Care machine and it fills with hot water just fine but the cold water has slowed to just a drizzle. Our water is from a well so I'm thinking there might be a clogged line (from sand). Is there a water filter that might be clogged going into the machine? If so, how do I get to it to clean it? If not, what alse could be causing this problem? Thanks Sue

    Thanks so much. I was thinking of replaceing the hoses at the same time so maybe that will just be a quick maintance fix before something really bad happens.

    Humm.. it looks like the filters are clean, not a bit of anything so now I'm back to square 1. I did buy new hoses because I have had these for 10 years and they were starting to look green around the ends. They are still good so I will reuse them for another outside gardening project and not waste them. I'm not sure what I need to do about the washer, maybe call in a professional to look at it???

    My Maytag washer makes a noise when filling with cold water. I have new hoses.I have cleaned the filter (where the waterhose hooks to the machine) on the machine.I also reversed the cold hose and the hot hose but still when filling with cold water, it makes an awful "vibrating" noise like there is an obstruction somewhere.I disconnected the cold line and put it in a bucket (with the machine unplugged) and turned on the cold water. No problems. Leads me to believe there is an obstruction somewhere in the washer other than the little filters where the hoses connect to the washer. Is there any other filters to clean? Any suggestions what I can try next? Thanks for the help!

    I have also cleaned the screen at the washer and cold water runs fine through the hose. Is there somewhere inside the washer to plug up?

    no need to replace hoses unless leaking. just clean filter. good idea to replace hose washers at same time - cost only pence or in your case dimes. (im in uk)

The inlet valve on the cold water inlet is clogged, dirty or jammed. You need to remove the inlet valve and clean the valve and filter. use back flushing with brushing to clean the filter.
the hum you hear is of the coil working but is not opening to allow water into the system.
Also you can switch the inlet valve from the hot line if needed .

Washing Machine Problems No Water

Washing Machine Fix Washing Machine No Water



My washing machine is taking a long time to fill. it just started doing this. the flow of water is very weak and as it is a super capacity washing machine it takes forever to fill up.

Have you checked the inlet filters on the water hoses ?

If you unscrew the water hoses from the machine, and look inside the connections on the machine, you should see the filters - they are usually a plastic "cage" supporting a gauze or fine mesh. These can be pulled out (you may need tweezers or fine nosed pliers) and washed under a running tap.

If this doesnt cure it, check that the water supplies where the hoses connect to your house plumbing are actually fully on and flowing properly.

Otherwise, there is probably a fault with the solenoid valve(s) on the machine that controls the flow of hot water in to your machine.

How do I clean water filter on a magtag top washer model LA613T

You may have a screen in the inlet side of your fill hoses. There is also a screen just inside the valve. Turn off the hot and colt water shut off valves. Start a cycle on warm wash to be sure both shut off valves are completely closed, and to relieve the pressure within the hose. Remove both hoses at both ends. If there is a screen in the hose connection...remove them, clean them and carefully reinstall them. The screens in the washer valve will be just inside the valve where the hose connected. Carefully remove, clean and reinstall them. Connect hoses back to washer and shut off valves using care not to cross thread. This will damage the connections and require replacement of the valve. Do not over tighten. Once all connections are secure, turn the water back on slowly and check for leaks. If you are uncomfortable doing this repair, it is a very inexpensive repair when a tech does it for you. Watch him or her do it, and do it yourself next time.

Rinse water barely trickles out of my washer

Do you fill the machine with hot water only?

If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.

When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.

When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.

Cold water just drips, hot is fine, good pressure.

turn off water then remove hose. filter is in the fitting on the machine where the hose connects. pull out filter and clean or replace it

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?
