Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
Fairly new washer, no problems until now. Regardless of load size selected tub fills to top, then over fills. Water continues to flow during agitate cycle. Water continues to flow after rinse cycle, Water continues to flow during spin cycle. Water flows after shut down. I closed water supply valves to save water. Seems solenoid may be stuck in open position. Do I need to replace water inlet valve ? This looks like the part from a short internet search. http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.60378/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=6 Thanks for any help.
Tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

The rubber hose was my problem. It broke at the tub. All I had to do was to remove the clamp, cut the bad part of the hose off and then replace the hose and clamp. All worked well after that.
Thanks for posting your solutions. You saved me a service call and the money it would of cost.
You guys are GREAT!

My Oasis was overflowing, ONLY on cycles which add a lot of water, like sheets, bulky. The repair tech from Sears basically said I was wrong because it couldn't overflow because the machine fills by time. Ha! He ran the express cycle and it didn't overflow. He left, I turned it on and it overflowed. Well, I called and he said that the main computer board must be out, just a little over $200! Came here (where I should have come first) and opened the machine. I found a small rub hole in the tube, taped it shut, and voila! Machine works. Will order a new hose
