Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Just got washer today 3 yrs old looks like new hooked up started load when draining overflowed out drain pipe seems like too much water or too fast thanks
If the water continues when electricity is discontinued the soleoid valve is jammed open, a fleck of rust or something, not designed to be repaired, it is easier and cheaper to replace. they are a standard part that fits 99% of all washers ~$10-20 at the local parts guy.
Usually only the cold solenoid has failed. it gets used more often.
If you are like me and only use cold water, swap the hoses on the taps, and swap the wire connectors on the solenoid valves, so the former hot is now cold, and you will get about the same number of years before you have to replace anything

SOURCE: drain pipe overflows from washer
Something is blocking the drain and it can't keep up with the flow now. You can try cleaning the drain with an auger (available for not much money at home supply stores). You'll probably find a sock or lots of lint built up.

Any washer cannot drain too fast, the problem is in your drainage pipework, there is likely to be a partial blockage or restriction of some kind, it means rodding the pies, or taking it apart to clean it.
