Maytag atlantis water does not stop filling, replaced timer and switch

Posted by on

  • max_horton Feb 20, 2009

    My Maytag Atlantis has a strange problem I can’t figure out. When I start the washer it runs fine until it gets to the rinse cycle. Once in the rinse cycle is just fills and drains the water at the same time. It will continue to do this until I stop it. It does the every time. I have replaced the timer and water level selector and hose. Sometimes it also does this when I first start the washer. I will start the washer, the tub will fill with water and then drain it. Sometimes it won’t even fill because it drains the water as it enters the tub. Any ideas?? Thanks.

Check the host that attaches to the water level sensor. The sensor is located behind the water level setting dealy ( I forget what they call it) so you have to remove the control panel to get it. Before you do that you can see if the tube is connected properly by just opening up the top of the washer and pulling on the tube. If it comes down in your hand there's your problem. If you can't pull it out it still may be connected but have a hole in it or just not be completely secured. You will have remove the control panel to fully inspect it.

I have a maytag atlantis washer that will completely fill at the beginning of the cycle, stop, then make a very loud squeeling noise, stop, and now will not advance through any cycle...even manually. We...


Hello,

The not completly filling and squeeling makes me want to look at the screen on the water valve that the hoses attach to on the rear of the machine for blockage preventing water flow,to me the squeeling is the solonoids on the water valve calling for water yet no water coming in. IF you manually fill the washer using buckets of water/a hose what will happen? perhaps try that!!
Also if you have the "aquaflow flood stop" hoses the internal stopper in the hose is bad,replace hoses using standard hoses

Good luck,i hope this helps you to fix your washer,

Washer is over filling.


Hi, Does water enter the machine when there timer is off or even if the machine is unplugged? If this is the case, the inlet valve needs replaced. If the water stops when the timer is turned off, there is a problem with the water level switch. Please let me know so that I can assist you further. Thanks
