Maytag washes and does not advance to rinse
« on: January 25, 2009, 06:39:38 PM »

Washes then sits on rinse.  If you advance by hand, it moves into rinse and keeps on washing.  If you lift the lid after all this it drains and advances.

Most likely a faulty water valve most washers rinse cold only and if the cold water does not work it will sit in rinse and not advance. To test this set the washer to cold/cold and turn it on most likely no water will enter the tub. Move the temperature selector switch to warm or hot wash and the water will probably start flowing. If so you have a faulty water valve or a plugged screen in the valve.

If it were a faulty water valve, would it not stop first and then sit there?  This keeps washing right through til the end.  Sorry, I put it on colors and that is what it did.

If the water temp was set cold/cold and the cold valve was faulty it would. But any other setting it would fill and wash with hot water but when it got to rinse and the cold water doesn't dispense it will sit and do nothing.
