    I have the same problem on a Maytag Ensignia washer (model number MAV6358AWW). I have a temporary fix that sometimes works. When the problem occurs, I just play around with the Automatic Temperature Control feature.

    Here's an example sequence of steps:
    1) Problem: On cold/cold setting, no water comes out.
    2) Switch to warm/cold setting. Water starts coming out.
    3) Turn "Auto Temperature Control" on.
    4) Switch to cold/cold setting. Now only cold water comes out, as desired.
    5) (Optional) Turn "Auto Temperature Control" off.
    6) (Optional) Shut off hot water valve at the wall. That's because warm water sometimes comes out on the cold/cold setting on my machine. Remember to turn it back on when you're done with your load.

You need to remove the cover and check the voltage to the cold water inlet valve. Do this with a volt meter while it is set to fill with cold water. It is most likely an AC voltage that is around 24 volts. If you have voltage then the valve is most likely bad.

Check the water level control, it could be stuck or faulty.

It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.  Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then  hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed.  Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.

Washer will work in Rinse or Spin settings, but not any wash settings


If you are doing the normal procedures and the water elimination function is working, you have power to the circuit board and controls. The circuit board wash cycle section is independent and aligned with the timer circuit, thus the Wash Cycle Controller has failed. All of the functions or options are one the one board and a replacement board needs to be purchased and installed.

Maytag ensignia top load washer will not fill with water at start of the cycle?


The drain hose has to be at least 30 inches above the floor or gravity will drain the machine. Also: If the water hose is jammed into the drain a siphoning affect will occur in some instances.

I have a Maytag Ensignia and the water will run but the tub will not fill.


You may have to just raise the drain hose up higher. It sounds as if the water is going out the drain hose as it tries to fill.Drain hose should be up as high as the top of the washer.Hope this helps.

When the washer sits idle, water will drip in the tub from the top rim at about a drop every 3 seconds. it is a maytag laundry washer #mav4755aww


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water hose connects to the washer is not sealing completely when it's off. It get sediment in it over time and causes this especially if you use well water.You may can stop it by cleaning the valve or replace it. There is one valve for the hot and cold together. There is a screen filter in the water hose where it connects to the water supply.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news
