Best I remember there are two hoses that make up the drain, one goes from the tub to the pump the other goes from the pump to the house drain. You should have got a 6-8 foot section of corrigated drain pipe, this goes to the house, bends around on one end and into the house drain. the other end goes to the machine, you may have to lay down to attach it, I cant remember which side that pump is on, but it should be easily identified

It is your water pump. If you don't know what you are doing it could be tough.

Take off the front panel (Use a putty knife to press in the tabs near each upper corner where the top lid meets the front panel).
Check the wiring (esp. the ground) on the pump - it may be corroded or loose.
Tip the machine back to access the underside & check the motor-driven belt that drives the drum & the discharge pump - it may have broken or come off.
Check the discharge pump for blockage.

SOURCE: my maytag washer model lav3600aww continues to

Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this helps you. Let me know how it goes.
It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's 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. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

It appears your pump or timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Maytag Centennial Top Load Washer drains as it fills.


The water is probably siphoning out of the tub. Your drain pipe is either too low or the drain hose is down too far into the pipe. Take the drain hose out of the pipe and lift it high. I'll bet your problem goes away

My maytag washer is not holding the water and it drains it before it washes. I tried it at different water levels and it kept on draining the water every time I start it.


Check and make sure your drain from the washer is not pushed to far down in to the WALL DRAIN PIPE Because if it is the water will SIPHON out faster than you can fill.. Pipe should only be down about 6 inches in to drain and secured... Hope this Helps

My maytag washer, will not fill w/waterit runs in


Check your drain hose. It only goes into the drain stand pipe from 4 to 6 inches. Insertion any further will creat a siphon and constantly drain the tub. The stand pipe needs to be at least 36 inches from the floor.

Maytag legacy series washer not holding water


Same problem here. But according to Maytag Service, the draining pipe may be too deep inside the draining tube on the wall, thus creating a siphon effect and not allowing the tub to fill.
Their suggestion is to ckeck the pipe and make sure no more than 6-8 inches are inside the draining pipe. This should take care of the suction. We'll see, Imma do that when I get home.

Washer won't fill up


The problem is most likely your drain. If there is no air break at the drain,( a gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can enter) Your water will siphon out of the machine. Also make sure your drain pipe is higher than the tub of your washer and you only want about 6 inches of the drain hose sticking into the pipe. If you have water coming back out of the pipe when the machine drains, you will need a plumber to clean the pipes or replumb the drain. New washers pump out faster than older ones did and they need a good drain to handle the flow.
