Washer will not fill with water

Will not fill with water.  No valve blockage and electric valves open and close when bench tested.  Control board was tested and it too is not the problem.

Это хороший вопрос?

Hi @stellema ,

When you say that the control board was tested did you just prove that the control board operates the solenoids or did you also try different wash cycles and/or hot or cold temps only to see if it fills?


The problem is Maytag made a lousy product and will not admit it or give you the actual info you need to fix it. I have the Maytag bravos washer, and it’s a total turd. Clothes don’t get clean and often I’ll find a sock that’s not even wet… I can not find how to adjust the water level to something more realistic. I am a disabled vet and can not afford to replace this paperweight right now — Maytag, way to go in disservice to your customers.


Ben Dover-There isn’t an adjustment. The water lever is controlled by the settings. If you have a setting for “Bulky items” or for “Deep Wash” cycle, try those. They will fill the hightest. It’s frustrating how the manufacturers sell these high efficient washers, saying they’ll save you money. When you have to buy HE Detergant then you have to rewatch your clothes a second time to get them clean, plus, these washers take an hour when the others did a load in 20 min. You save nothing and waste more time and electricity to run it.

Sorry, I had to vent


Amen! I called Maytag--the service rep told me the government's "high efficiency laws" force the company to produce a machine that will not fill more than half full with water. Had I known, I would never have bought a new washer. The one I am now stuck with really sucks! If the government is responsible, we need to elect some intelligent people. If Maytag is responsible, they should go our of business!


This is all part of the EPA wanting to conserve water. Or so they say. I see no savings anywhere. These HE washers take twice as long to wash a load of clothes. And when they are finished, the need to. E washed a second time to rinse the detergent out. Your electric has more than doubled and you’ve used just as much water as in a model that isn’t energy efficient.

I believe “Energy Efficient “ is just a selling feature. It makes you feel like your doing something good when you buy it. It takes away your guilt by making you feel guilty if you don’t buy it.

William, the problem would have to be inside one of the water inlet valves. If your getting voltage to the valve and no water is entering the machine then the mechanics of the valve aren’t opening to let the water through. Sediment from the water can coat the inside of the valve with a cement mixture of these sediments. Be sure you flush the lines, let the water run full blast for a minute before attaching to the new valve.

The water valve part #w11165546

This valve has four coils and temperature sensing. If you have the option to select was tempature, set it for cold or tap cold if it has it and see if it fills

Do you here the valve energizing when it’s in fill mode? Was voltage or resistance used to benchtest the valve? Did the washer have any error codes? What happens after you start the washer? Do you hear any noise? Are lights flashing? Does it drain or spin eventually? It’ll take sometimes 5 minuets before it begins to fill.

Today I am getting a used control board from a local Maytag dealer. He seems to think the problem has to be the board or the wire harness to the water valves. Each valve was individually energized and all 4 ohm readings were about equal. The valve wire harness was not checked. I don't think this machine records any codes. I do not hear the valves energizing when the machine is on. The washer starts, goes through its process of measuring load size or weight and then just keeps operating without water. I have to believe it's a board problem because there are 4 valves involved and there is no reason for all of them to fail at the same time yet operate when energized on the bench.


So the washer does it’s load sensing and skips the fill process and goes straight to agitating the clothes?

It thinks it has a full tub of water. The water level pressure switch is stuck on full. If the little rubber hose that connects to bottom of tub and other in connects in console, if it connects to the board than yes, you need a board. If it connect to a switch that adjusts water level then you need that switch.

I thought you said the board had been tested? On the water valve, you can have one bad valve and it won’t work. Understand that the valve is just a coil of wire that when energized will pull up a plunger that will open the door so water can pass. The plunger can fail. The coil of wire can break or mineral deposits build up and water won’t pass.

Please let me know the outcome. Thank you.


Can that little tube become blocked? Mine works, fills, agitates, hot cold or any cycle. EVERY load of laundry has to little water to even turn the pile over and I end up with dry or nearly dry clothes at the top. Piece of junk these MVWX655DW1 Bravo washers are. Call em wishy washers ... because you wish they would!


@Jon Holcomb. The hose could get a clog, I’ve never seen a front load one get clogged. It would be easy to check it. Those front loaders don’t use much water to begin with. I agree the Brarvo washers did not deserve the name Bravo. I would check the screens at tge valve where the fill hoses connect at the washer. If the screens have a lot of sand/sediment that could cause a low fill. While the hose is off the washer check the water pressure from the house by filling up a bucket of water with the faucet opened all the way. That’ll flush out any debris. Make sure the drain hose isn’t more than 10” in the pipe. It end of drain hose has to be 32” from the floor.


Lady Tech—you’re saying that a brand new washer has a bad inlet?? Mine fills on”deep fill” to halfway cover the clothes. This tells me the inlet valves work, just not the machine and there is some type of governor on the machine that doesn’t allow it to fill. I need that part broken so I’m not rewashing the same clothes. My old 1998 Maytag did a much better job than this POS

Solution 1:

Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve opens to allow water to enter the washing machine. If the water inlet valve is defective, the wash may fill slowly or not fill at all. The water inlet valve requires sufficient water pressure to function properly. First, check the water pressure to determine that it is adequate. If the water pressure is adequate, try cleaning the screens inside the water inlet valve hose connection ports. If the washer still fills slowly, replace the water inlet valve.

Solution 2:

Low Water Pressure from House Supply

The home water pressure might be too low. The water inlet valve requires at least 20 psi to function properly. Check the water pressure to the valve to determine if it is sufficient.

Is this a computer generated answer. The fill valve solenoids were bench tested and all four work. The valve screens are not plugged up and the water pressure is between 40 and 60 lbs. The hose that detects water level is not plugged and the lid lock is working. The control board appears to be the only thing that operates the fill valves and it has been replaced. Still no water entering the machine. I even replaced the fill hoses since the ones on the machine were older than the machine itself.


No, it's not computer generated. I listed the only two solutions I'm aware of. We can ask our professional if she knows something else that would cause this, @ladytech
