Question about Maytag Washing Machines
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.

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.

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.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
