    my unit when off continues to leak water into the cylinder until it is almost full by mourning. We then have to hit the drain cycle to empty the unit.

What has happened is you have sand in your water valve from your water. This pluggs the water valve and also sticks it open so when the water valve shuts of there is still a small trickle of water coming through the washer. Replace the water and it will fix the problem (no way of cleaning the inside of the valve.) Replace water valve.

After washer has stopped, it contunes to drip inside the tube


Start the washer in a normal cycle, once it starts to fill, unplug the unit from the wall. If the water stops completely its not a water valve issue. If it still drips, replace the water valve to the washer. Good Luck

When washing machine not being used the water drips into the washer tub, it is top loader about 12 yrs old

if the washer is filling up on it's own the water valve is bad,sediment gets inside it doesn't close all the way allowing water to leak through. they show two different valves,when you talk to your parts guy bive him the full model number off of the washer and they are asking for a series number either 83 or 87 so you get the correct valve

There are 2 screws down toward the bottom of the front of your washer. You remove these and grab the front panel and pull toward you and up and the 2 clips at the top will snap out. Hope this helps!

Cold water will not run into washer, but drips when washer is off

Take the hose off the back of the washer and remove the screen and you will find it to full of sediment. Clean it out and try again.

Removing the top

the pressure sensor is inside the control panel, the panel is screwed closed from the rear
you initially check that the plastic air line is attached at top and bottom
top is easy
to reach the bottom
the top of the washer must be removed, unlock the two metal clips at the front ~3 inches from the edges by sliding a putty knife or other blunt blade between the front panel and the top
tilt up the top
visully inspect the air line running from the top left to the bottom of the drum/tank

usually the top comes off
test that first,
because if the bottom is off, there would be water running all over the floor as the pressure sensor attaches below water line

if both hose ends are attached remove the top end and blowe down it, any water in the line messes up pressure readings

the water level sensor is adjustable
remove the water level sensor body from the control panel, there is a lock clip on the right side of the control body
there is a 1/8th nut next to the shaft the knob sits on
clockwise to raise water level
counterclockwise to lower water level
if turning the adjuster has no effect, the spring inside has broken, not weakened, and the control body should be replaced.
water level control bodies are common to many models and makes, the local parts store will have a suitable one, even if labelled ge or kenmore instead of maytag

Maytag atlantas top loader water keeps dripping from top of drum

Your water inlet valve is probably leaking by. If the water pressure is too, or if there is sediment build inside the valve, sometimes the solenoids will not close properly. Try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. If not, I would recommend replacing it. Depending on which valve you have, has two listed for this model washer for $20 to $30. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further assistance.

I have a Maytag washer MOD # LAT 2300 AAE

If the machine does not start.
Make sure the circuit breakers or fuses are functional in the main electrical panel.
Try to turn them OFF and ON again.
You might need to check the thermal or non thermal fuses inside your washer.
If all appears in working order, you might have a burnt motor if no noise comes from it when you pull out the knob.
