Maytag neptune tl top load washer - the cold water continue to fill and over flood the tub.


Pull the washer 120VAC power cord. Does water continue to flow into the machine?

If yea you have a Stuck Open water valve. If know then you may have a stuck pressure switch.

Are you going to try to DIY the repair? Further troubleshooting will be required.

Washer will not shut off water in rinse cycle thus flooding house. Repairman said we needed a new control panel-just want to make sure. Could it be something else? Bailey


Bailey,

Did not see this second post. If the water continues to run filling the machine try this.

Lets determine if this is a Stuck Open Water Inlet valve. If you hit the Off button does water stop flowing into the machine?

If so then I feel you have a stuck closed pressure switch never signaling that the washer has reached the proper water fill level and flooding the machine.

Are you a DIY type of owner if so I will point you to a better forum for support.....D*ick aka dh1200s

Hello, On Neptune washer serial # 34098916EF, Washer tub fills with about 2 inches of water within hours after doing a wash. When I spin the tub by hand, I hear water sloshing inside. Machine drains fine....


You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.

Water sometimes does not shut off. flooded twice. happens intermittently.


If when the machine is flooding if you turn off power to the machine and it continues to fill: replace water inlet valve. If flooding water stops filling when power is interupted: clean out the end of the water level switch tube where it connects to the outer wash tub.

You have several possibles problems

The pressure switch could be faulty or the tube that runs from the pressure switch down to the accumualtor could have a cut or tear in it. solution replace hose.

or The mixing valve could be hanging open also with a piece of debris. solution replace mixing valve

For now turn the water when your not using your machine.

Maytag Neptune Stackable washer continues to fill with water when unit is off


If the machine continues to fill even after the power has been switched off, this sounds like a stuck inlet valve. To identify the valve, look at your model in the "parts store" section of Maytag's website. The valve is item 21 on the "Control Panel, Top & Lid" drawing. From the drawing, the valve looks like a fairly standard item; I suspect you might get something suitable a bit cheaper elsewhere. A
