Maytag SE1000 repair manual online?
« on: October 28, 2008, 12:51:35 PM »
Good afternoon all... :)

My Maytag washer has suddenly stopped accepting cold water.  The hot water works fine as does everything else (except a cold rinse) but when I opt for Cold water it seems to be laboring to let some into the machine... all I get is a tiny dribble and alot of noise.  And even when the machine is off (and unplugged) I now have cold water dripping into the tub.

I've checked the hoses and screens for debris but they are clean and running freely.

My best guess (from exhaustive research) is that the water inlet valve has given up.  I can order the valve locally and I want to have a go at installing it myself.

To that end, I was wondering if there is a downloadable manual online anywhere for this unit... or one that might be comparable enough to make some sense of the whole adventure?

I'm hoping this won't turn into a nightmare repair... and if there are any caveats or suggestions that I should know before I begin, I'd surely appreciate any and all advice.  Especially the variety of advice which begins with, "Whatever you do, for goodness sake don't touch that!   :D

Thanks very much for your time,

Model SE1000

Helen

i tried looking for the manual for you and couldn’t  find it.  Otherwise you probley don't need it to fix your machine.  From what it sounds like you need to 1. either clean or change the screens in both your hot/cold fill hose's and in the water valve. or 2. change the water valve.  From what you said it seems as though there is sediment in your water valve and the cold water solenoid isn't closing all the way.  If and when you change the water valve on this machine make sure you get the wires off the old valve and onto the new one the same exact way you took them off.  Also to be sure to unplug the machine.

Thanks so much for your reply. 

I did check the hoses and the screens on both hoses and the two that reside in the valve and they all were clear.

I'll certainly take careful note of the wiring when I remove the old valve and be sure to wire the new one exactly the same.

And thank you for looking around for a downloadable manual for me... I surely appreciate your time and expertise!

Thanks again...  ;)

That's a 24-volt valve, by the way. Don't  replace it with anything else than a 206413

I will provide a copy of the manual for a beer donation if you need one.

Hey...  :)

The local appliance repair moguls gave me a part number of 206413 before I gave them my credit card number and told them to go ahead and order it.  At the time, they could have told me it was a UPSNASCARAFLAC and I would have been just as confused.

But... thanks to your reply... I have a good feeling that the ordered part will be the right one.

Thank you for the offer of the manual.  If I run into a brick wall... how many beers would put you in the mood to come over and pick up the pieces?   :D

Seriously...  thank you very much!  The valve should be at the store tomorrow.  I feel kinda like Superwoman... but without quite so much Spandex... and maybe a little less of a headband...  ;)

You guys rock!  Huge thanks!

Helen

That's up to you.
It can be done from your profile settings.

Let me know if you need help.

I do not feel it's right to ask for a donation for a service manual that can already be found online for free.

Please don't do it again.
Hope you find our site helpful.

I didn't realize you had it since the lady couldn't find one. Didn't mean to twist your panties.

Just to follow up here... I replaced the inlet valve this morning... reconnected everything (with new washers and screens for the hoses)... fired up a load of tshirts... and it's as good as new again...  :)

Thanks ever so much to all of you for your help!
