Check the tube leading away from the fill level switch for splits .take tube offr and check for blockage. this tube goes to the air chamber which may also be clogged. if so clean it thoroughly

Washer wont start, it will spin but will not begin the wash or start to fill

It won't wash till the water fills to the point of tripping the water level switch. Check your screens for clogsthemobilian_3029.jpg

My maytag home top loading washing machine over fills with water, ie. the switch to stop filling and start washing doesn't go off. I can drain it by setting it to spin.

top loading machines comes with a pressire switch to determine the water level.IT will fill with water till the switch is triggered to stop filling and continue with the next task of washing. there would be a rubber hose connected from the wash bucket to the pressure switch. Check for broken,leaking,bitten by rats hose or probably the switch it self is faulty, which is rather rare.

Maytag pav2300 wont stop filling up. New timer

After the water fill, Switch off the mains, allow little water bleed through the hose that goes to the level switch. As the water flows try fixing into the level switch block.

Clean the water drips to dry and switch on the m/c. It should be alright since you say that the switch is OK when air is blowed!

Washer stopped filling. power still on. turning dial to different positions has no effect.

water level sensor not working or load size selector switch failed. could also be a failed water inlet solenoid valve. Turn it to cold wash and see if water fills again, if not turn it to hot wash and see if it fills again.

Maytag MAV5000 washer, water filling does not stop, small tube in back is hooked up.

Remove the small tube from the water level switch and blow through it to clear any clog in the air dome on the side of the tub.
Remove the small tube from the air dome and blow through it into the water level switch to reset it.
Then set the machine for spin and run spin cycle for 1 minute. Then try your fill again. If it does not work this time, replace the water level switch.

You may need a new fill switch.Or you can try to remove the small hose from the outer tube to the water level switch and clean it.That is a short cut that may work but i would go with a new water level control switch hope i helped:)

GE wcxr1070a washing machine. fills with water

Check the water level switch and the plastic tubing to the switch.
Sometimes soap scum stops up the plastic hose and the water level switch does not close to send power to the timer.
If the plastic hose is good and the water level fills and stops replace the water level switch.

Maytag washer will not stop filling when wash cycle is first selected. Doesn't matter if I choose small, medium, or large load.

How do you get it stop filling? If it stops filling by just shutting the timer off you may have a bad pressure/water level switch, if you have too shut the water off too the machine at the wall then you have a bad inlet water valve.
