Question Very little hot water?
Model Number: LAT8650AAL   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Bought a used Maytag washer and drier for the kids new home. When I hooked things up, the hot water fill was extremely slow - particularly in contrast to the cold water fill. I removed the hoses from the back of the machine and had LOTS of pressure in the hot water line so it must be something in the machine. My guess is that I need a new fill valve, but thought I'd post to the forum to see what the experts think. Thanks for any insight and assistance!
Happy Holidays from Iowa

Check the inlet screen of the fill valve, may be clogged up.

thanks for the suggestion but I have already removed the hose from the back of the machine and have LOTS of water pressure. The screen looked good when I first hooked up the hoses and with the pressure that I had, I'm thinking that the hoses aren't the problem.
Do the electric valves ever get gummed up where they don't open fully? I guess that I could also try reversing the wires to the hot and cold inlets to see if I get a lot of hot water with them reversed. I have a lot of cold water coming in when the temperature is set to "cold"

Although rare, I would just replace the water solenoid, but before doing that reverse the wires, you just might have a lower voltage coming in on the hot water solenoid.

I'm not always sure what I'm looking at but it appears that there are two solenoids that are cast into the water inlet valve. Is there a solenoid separate from these?

Yes, two solenoids, two sets of wires. As I said, you might just replace the solenoid with a new one, most probable failure.

OK... it just didn't look like they figured that the solenoids would be replaced without replacing the whole valve. At least I knew what you were talking about!
thanks. I'll give it a shot.
