Have you changed your door latch wax motor yet... If you have the brown actuator pin then you want to chuck that wax motor out of there quicker than spit! You want the redesigned wax motor with the black actuator pin. I know of folks where the wax motor failure caused the timer and /or water valves to act up... See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

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.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Part Change?

I haven’t had to change the water inlet valve but is this the valve assembly you purchased?
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-fav6800aww-%3d%3dc292i1032809&PartID=1032809
It looks like they throw in an install instruction sheet at this parts supplier site. If you have this do they speak to adapting the wiring harness to the H/C valve assembly. I’m sure you are not lucky enough to have male spade connections on you replacement inlet valve. If they are spade lugs this would be a piece of cake to interface too. Looks like a molded connector on the inlet valve to terminate the 120VAC power to the valve assembly.
I called the supplier above and if your machine starts with serial number 18 or above you need to purchase an upper LED wiring harness p/n 1185286 $55 to interface to the replacement H/C valve you purchased. Or you can purchase p/n 1404313 wiring info for $7.50 for the DIY’er. I know this is a bit frustrating. I don’t have the valve in hand so I can’t offer a quick solution. I’m willing to bet the wiring harness they are selling for $55 is nothing more than a cable with proper female/male mating connector transitions to interface to the factory 120VAC connections to the inlet valve. If my water inlet valve fails I would be in the same boat as you but I would make up an interface cable before spending $55. Maybe a more knowledgeable forum member can offer a better solution. Good luck to you.

SOURCE: Maytag Performa wont fill hot water

The water fill valve - The water fill valve is a mechanical and electrical part, the coils on the valve need electricity to mechanically open the valve to allow the water to flow into the washer....myth....the washer pumps water into itself...no, it does not. The fill valve opens and the house water pressure pushes the water into the washing machine.
No cold water or no hot water - The fill valve has two coils, one for the hot water and one for the cold water. It is possible that one of the coils can fail and you loose that filling ability. If the cold water coil quits, the hot will still work and during warm fill you will get hot water only and during a cold fill you will get no water at all. If the hot coils quits, you will still have cold water fill, cold water only on a warm setting and no water on a hot fill setting.

You can test a fill valve live for 120 volts, power to a fill valve coil and no fill = a bad fill valve. You can also test the coils for continuity, no continuity = a bad fill valve. Some Maytag washers have a fuse in the fill valve circuit, if this fuse let go the washer will not fill. Fill valves can also from time to time stick open and not stop filling. If you have to shut off the fill valves to stop the water from filling in the washer, you have a bad fill valve and you will have to replace it.

My maytag washer model lat8006aae hot water flows in slow. I reversed water supply lines, no change, replaced water strainers and new water lines, still slow flow. supply lines, inlet water valve


It is possible the hot cold switch is flawed and stuck on mix of hot and cold I would have the inlet valve checked with a multi meter they can also check it for u at most appliance parts stores

Water will not come into the washer but moter is running.I have checked all hoses


shut taps and disconnect hose and place in bucket then make sure water comes out of hose by slowly opening taps.
If ok check if the electric valves open by setting first cold then hot on temp button. if hot water only then cold valve is faulty. you should hear a click sound from valves usually situated under control panel. if not then unplug machine, remove control panel and measure resistance on electrical connections of cold and hot valves with ohm meter at around 15 ohm if they are marked 12 v
meaning they operate on 12 volts from the control panel computer.
if no ohm reading or in the mega ohms replace valve. you can swap the wires between cold and hot if cold valve is faulty and use the hot valve for cold wash only then you wont have hot water.
If both valves ohms around 15 ohm then plug in and measure voltage at valve when machine starts you should get 12 volts on valves.( be careful for mains high voltage from mains wire entering panel when measuring keep hands clear of mains voltage and any water from panel.
If no voltage may then be computer panel faulty. check connections from valve connectors to panel and connectors on panel may be loose if not check voltage on panel where wires connect to computer panel if no voltage then make sure the water level valve is not stuck in closed position that will tell the computer the machine is full of water. just remove one or two wires from the level control valve (the level valve is a round plastic valve about the size of a small cup and has wires and a thin plastic pipe connected to it )and start machine if water enters then replace level valve if not maybe its computer board fault, replace. (you can test level valve with ohm meter and blow into the place where the pipe is connected by removing pipe it should click and ohm meter should show around 0.2 ohms when blowing and high ohms when not blowing.) some click twice as they have two levels.

My maytag epicz will run water and then just stop it lock and later get code f33


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Water Inlet Valve If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

Timer If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.

Bosch washer #2460 signas that water tap is closed, checked the hoses and screens


I am not sure why but there are 2 posts for your question. This is a duplicate of my original answer:
If you have checked the hoses and screens then the most probable failure is the inlet water valve. I suspect that one of the electrical water valve solenoids has failed. If you using cold water try a warm or hot wash. If your using hot or warm try a cold wash. I am not sure on this washer if there is a mixing valve but may front loading washers have mixing valves that mix hot and cold water simply to help dissolve the HE type soaps. If changing wash temp makes no difference then a continuity check for inlet water valve coil resistance will have to be performed with an inexpensive ohm meter. If there is no continuity the solenoid has failed and the inlet water valve will have to be replaced.

This unit appears to have 2 inlet water valves one for hot and cold and one for just cold that is used for diluting soap. You will need to check all 3 solenoids for continuity. The inlet water valves are items 5 and 6 of this picture:

Maytag performa washer hot/cold cycles reverse, hooked up correct


This sounds like a cold water supply problem that's usually caused by a problem at the water inlet valve. First, remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Water level controls - The water level control is also know as a pressure switch, this is where you set the water level ( small - medium - large ). The water level control is responsible to shut off the power to the fill valve and direct that power to the timer so the washing machine can start up. The WLC has electrical contacts in it that sends power to the fill valve and when the WLC is satisfied the water level is correct the electrical contacts open power to the fill valve and send the power to the timer and the washer starts. Picture of this here. How the water level control knows when it is time to shut the water off is, a air tight hose runs from the outer washer tank to the water level control. As the water fills the outer tank air is pushed up the hose, depending on which setting you have made ( small- medium - large ) is takes a certain amount of this pressure to make the WLC cycle over and shut off the water and send this power to the timer. If this hose develops a leak or a pin hole the washer can over fill as the WLC may not be able to shut the water off. The water level control can also break down and allow the washer to over fill as well.

A couple of tips from readers (Thankx!! ):
~ If you have a loose hose on the water level control or tank end, use a plastic wire tie to help hold the hose tighter and make a tight fit.
~ The water level tube (tube that runs from the square box), access panel on the outer drum where the bleach tube also ends) from the pressure sensor switch (front panel) can become clogged.  Or the two holes from the outer tub into this square box panel on the outside of the outer tub can become clogged. Either clog, I am told by my help repair guy can cause the sensor to think that there is still too much water in the tub and so will not allow motor to activate spin.
~ If the water level control contact is bad, it may also stop the filling ok, but not tell the washer to start agitating.
