Either the hot water solenoid went out or there is an issue with the hot water control.

This sounds like it may be a serious problem so I would suggest you either call a repair service to help you figure out how to repair and what parts you will need.


  • It appears that you may need 1 or even 2 parts and they can be expensive.
  • It is not a simple job to repair and it involves messing with or near electric wires and removing several parts of your machine.
  • If you are handy with this type of thing then Google Maytag Maxima MHW6000XW F06 and E02 and you will see several articles about repair instructions as well as several YouTube videos.
  • I would suggest you contact either Maytag (is your machine still in warranty?) or Sears Repair Shop and discuss your problem (try Maytag first).
  • Maytag will also have a copy of your manual to download.

Here's my two cents worth learned the hard way of being penny wise and pound foolish.

With washers and dryers, call in the pros. It is worth it! Unless you are truly a handy person, then don't monkey with these things...I really think they are designed so we (meaning not their people) can't fix them.


When I tried the DIY method I always (and I mean always) made things worse and ended up having a bigger bill than if I would have called an expert in the first place.

If you are handy and want to give it a go, my suggestion is to call their customer services and run it all by them first this way you are getting the info from the horse's mouth (so to speak). A link to them is below:

Good luck!!
