Question about Maytag Washing Machines
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.
tnx 4 using fixya,

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

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

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.

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.
