Replace the "water inlet valve" on your machine. If you could post your model number I can point you to the part you need.

SOURCE: Washer immediately goes into wash cycle when

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

SOURCE: Maytag centennial washer - power went out while

Set the timer to any off position. Unplug the unit for 10 minutes. Plug it back in and try that. The worst thing
you can do to a Maytag washer is advance the timer yourself...hope this helps.

SOURCE: I just purchased a Maytag centennial washer. I

According to page 6 of the manual for the "3 cu. ft. Capacity Maytag® Centennial® Top Load Washer" and page 8 of the manual for the "Centennial® High-Efficiency Top Load Washer", not more than 1 cup (250 ml) should be used in either machine.

Also, it should be added to the dispenser cup on the front left of the machine - not directly to the wash as it will interfere with the detergents ability to clean the clothes.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

I have a Maytag Centennial top load washer. When washing in normal or heavy with large or super load size, the washer remains in sensing mode. Some water does start to fill, but never reaches wash cycle....


This unit does not handle a super large load as it advertised. When you put a super large load, the sensor is over-sized and will not move on the next cycle.

Want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial


I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK
