I am sorry. Was just making sure. Ok, Did you open a valve when you installed the water heater to get the air out if it? also is both the hot water and cold water to the machine not filling?

I did and neither cold nor hot is filling, it started to fill then just shut off
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I checked to make sure all valves are back on to
Plumber: Derek Williams,

ok this will sound strange. If it started to fill that says it's not a water issue. It a control board issue. Lets try to rest the board by unplugging the unit for ten minutes and then plugging it back in and turning it on. if it doesn't fill then you know it's in the control board.

Their is also a lid a fuse for the lid switch assembly that may be blow. this can also stop the water from going into the machine. you will have to get this part from maytag if it is blown.

Ok where is that located at
Plumber: Derek Williams,
 replied 2 years ago

the switch will be located in the control board panel. their should be just 2 screws holding this in place. unscrew the screws and lay the panel down. and check the fuse. If you replace the fuse and it blows again. then the switch is bad, in witch case you will have to replace the whole switch assembly
