Water Valve

Performa Washer By Maytag


If the problem with your Performa washer is that is not filling properly with water, or is not filling at all. The problem could be a bad water valve. 

The water mixing valve uses two solenoids to open the cold water side, the hot water side, or both the hot and cold water sides.

If one of the solenoids burn out, that side of the water valve will stop opening to allow water into the washer. To correct that you will need to replace the water valve assembly.

Other problem with the water valve is, that valve stay partially open even when no electricity is supplied to the solenoid causing the washer to fill and overflow. To correct that you will need to replace the water valve assembly.
