It could have a problem with the pressure switch.
the water supposed to trigger the start of the wash cycle and turns off the filling cycle.

it is a single trow switch that disconnect the connection of water filling and connect the wash cycle on.

maybe it is disconnecting the filling cycle but would not connect the wash cycle.

your pressure switch may not be faulty take your lid off the pipe that goes into your pressure switch which should be located to the right handside blow into the pipe which should re-pressure rise it

SOURCE: Water will not stop filling tub.

the problem is that your pressure switch is not working properly. if you take the screws out of the back of the head you will find the pressure switch. first unplug the washer then undo the hose from pressure switch. blow trew the hose, then blow into the pressure switch if you hear the pressure switch click then re assemble and try again put on small load and watch if fills almost to the top or over flows replace pressure switch

SOURCE: Maytag washer, model: LAT8415AAE top loader. Washer fills with water but will not start agitating,spin or drain.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed

SOURCE: Maytag top load washer water runs but doesn't fill.

Drain is to low. You will have to raise the drain hose above the top of the washer. Whats happening is the water is siphoning out as fast as it goes in.

SOURCE: I have a Maytag A712 top load washer that filled

I drain water from stuck machine by filling an appropriately long piece of garden hose with water and holding thumbs on both ends. then i plunge one end deeply into the tub and have the other end below the first end when i let my thumbs loose. This machine has a water pump that will begin to lose a shiny steel retainer that digs into its housing and stops the belt.

My maytag home top loading washing machine over fills with water, ie. the switch to stop filling and start washing doesn't go off. I can drain it by setting it to spin.


top loading machines comes with a pressire switch to determine the water level.IT will fill with water till the switch is triggered to stop filling and continue with the next task of washing. there would be a rubber hose connected from the wash bucket to the pressure switch. Check for broken,leaking,bitten by rats hose or probably the switch it self is faulty, which is rather rare.

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Nf pops up on the screen & the washer stops


The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope this helps you.
