Maytag Washer PAVT-1 continues filling with water to overflowing

It won't stop adding water. If I move it to rinse, it will drain the tub and spins the clothes. It doesn't matter what size load (water level) I choose, it just keeps filing

Does it still do this with power to the machine off? If so it is your water fill valve. Because no power is getting to the valve it has to shut off unless some foreign particles are holding it open. Remove and replace the water fill valve if still runs water after power is off.

Here are some things on how the selector switches work: If it stops when you remove power look at these possibilities.

Water fill switches usually have an air tube that as the water level comes up the air pressure increases and causes the switch to go from fill to wash.
I have seen rodents chew holes in the air tubing and this could be the cause or you may have a bad switch.
Some times the switches also get out of calibration and need readjusting (especially if you have moved in altitude like up a mountain or into a valley).
If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesnt help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.

I need to know how a maytag performa pavt-1 washer drains. does it drain beneath the agitator or through the holes in the basket?


It drains through the holes in the plastic tub. You may hear a sloshing sound when you move the tub and this is normal. There is a solution sealed inside the tub on this unit to balance out the spin cycle.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

Washer will not stop filling and overflows.


A possibility is the pressure switch that senses water level is bad or the tube that connects it to the outer tub is split or loose and leaking air. If this is a timed-fill rather than a level-sensed fill, the timer may be in trouble. The washer top needs to be raised up to look for the level switch.
Remove the agitator and watch the plastic hub at the top of the shaft to see if it moves when the washer is set to wash. If it does, remove the plastic hub and see if it is cracked or the interior splines have been torn--if so, replace the hub.

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Maytag doesn't seem to rinse.


Try this. Run the machine set for full load, short wash. DO NOT put clothes or detergeants in the tub. Water only. Let the machine agitate for 1-2 minutes. Gently advance the timer manually untill it locks into spin. Let the machine continue to spin until it stops on its' own and begins to refill. At this point lift the lid and see if there is any access water in the tub.

Most of the time this condition is caused by a blackage in the drain line. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked in any way.

Also, there are times when I've had to removes socks and other objects from the tub to pump hose. It only take a 10% block to cause the machine to retain water.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
