I have a Maytag Mod MDB5000AWA.
Not getting the Hot water to come cold or hot setting, get cold water. I'm guessing it may be the control switch??
Please help.

please check if your unit is getting water from your hot water supply. if it is, kindly check the hot water supply nearest your unit to verify if you have hot water in your house.

if the unit is not being supplied with hot water, then the heater could be the problem. it is not heating up the water.

un-plug the unit and verify if you have resistance in the heating element.

if you do, then the problem could be in the relay on the control board. or the control board itself.
