Re: water fill

Try unplugging the unit. If it stops filling you have a control board problem. If it continues to fill, you have a bad fill valve that is not closing properly, usually because of dirt or scale buildup thats gotten past the inlet screen on the valve. Good Luck!

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

Does it fill when the machine is powered down?

If it does then the fill valve is stuck open and needs replacing

If it does not then you need to check the pressure switch and the air bell on the outer drum which probably has a ball of jellyfied soap in it.

If you take the back off you will see a thin plastic or rubber hose going from the bottom of the drum to a small flying saucer type object.

If you pull the hose off the bottom connection and blow into it you should hear a clicking noise from the pressure switch.

If it clicks then clean out the air bell and refit the hose .

If it does not click then get a new pressure switch

A repairman would test it live but that is not recommended for untrained people

SOURCE: maytag neptune washer stops after filling

Hello n8mtsn,

I would pull the 120VAC power cord to the washer for 10 seconds then power back up.
See if you can get into service mode. To enter Service Mode press and hold he Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps and the display reads “00”. If you can’t get into Service Mode I feel you have a Control Board issue/failure.

If you can get into Service Mode then go to page 15 of the SM and we want to try a Quick Service Cycle test. Follow the instructions to enter the Quick Service Cycle test and let us know the results. If the test will run it will take about 10 minutes.
Link to Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

When the washer is filling it doesn't shut off and runs over.

Hi, Will the water stop if you cit the power to the washer or does it still run? If it shuts off when the power is off to the wsaher, you will need to check the water level switch. If the water continues when the power is off, you will need to change the inlet valve. Please let me know if this helps or is I can assist you further.

My Maytag Atlantis washing machine doesn't fill

maytag has had multiple problems with the neptune series (atlantis included) units. Test the pressure switch for function and continuity, and also make sure pressure switch tubing is free and clear of obstruction or pinching. Replace pressure switch or tubing if needed. Pressure control may be located in machine control board on some models, if this is the case and the tubing is checking good, replace the machine control, not the interface or motor control board, and then test. all should be checking ok.

Pressure Switch or Air dome?

Does it stop filling when you hit Start/pause or do you have to shut off water supply? The air dome is the black rubber piece that is clamped to the pump housing. Usually i find that clogged not letting the pressure sw operate proper. I belive the switch has 4 wires. It has 2 contacts, one closes with a small amount of water visible in tub, hi contacts close with water much higher - even filling bottom of boot.
