Maytag washer water doesnt stop

I have an older maytag washer that has four fill levels. I can only use the lower two, since the high and extra high over fills the washer - doesnt stop either. Selecting the small and medium level buttons fill the washer to the large and extra large levels.

    You were exactly right!! Removed front panel, lifted top panel, and moved the top panel up and to the back. Pulled the tube that connected to the tub and the other end, the small tube, goes to the back of the panel that the level selector is (vacuum selector?). Took that entire tube out, and was filled with slimy crud. Cleaned that all out, put it back in, and it runs perfectly!! No more floods. Thanks!!!

Washer won't stop filling with water


What's the model? Could be a bad water valve that's stuck. If it's an older top loading washer, it could be a bad air dome hose that senses water pressure.

Fws445rf1 washer didnt stop filling and flooded my apt and it doesnt aggitate when it is washing,the whole thing just spins inside instead of moving back and forth,what are the most likely reasons for...


if it's a top-loader, then the water level sensor is probably failed! if an older machine- there's a plastic tube (which you can't see from the outside) that measures the column of water in the tub of your machine, and triggers the agitate and spin, and rinse cycles of your machine.
when it's in wash cycle the water level is lower, then it spins and drains and the rinse cycle pumps in more water (makes sense!), then drains & spins, then re-rinses at the same water level. your water level sensor is defective, probably. allowing it to over-fill.
it detects the water level as 'spin' and doesn't agitate!
my theory- no guaranty! if it's old get a new washer or a good used one! this is not a problem i've encountered, just a guess. good luck!

Maytag top loadind washer. Won't stop filling up.


Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

Maytag Washer PAVT-1 continues filling with water to overflowing


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.

Yes, I think that rubber tube measures water level. But I've never changed one. Good luck.

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.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804


OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!
