Tub overfills, plastic tube had been cut. I splice tube with slightly bigger tube. Does the plastic tube have to be a certain length?


As the tub fills with water, the water level switch detects the pressure of the air trapped in the tube. When the pressure reaches a certain point, it turns off the water and starts the wash cycle. As long as the tube that connects to the water level switch does not leak any air, it should be fine.

Water level does not tur n off


Bad pressure switch(water level switch), or check the hose going to the water level switch to make sure it doesn't have a hole / leak in it, or just make sure it isn't disconnected from the switch fitting.
GOOD LUCK !

Water in the drum


The water valve where the hoses connect to the washer is bad.
A new water inlet valve will solve the problem.

Maytag washer is leaking water. Looks as though


Check the water level switch. This is a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to start the appropriate cycle. Look for any obstructions in or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch. Sorry for your trouble and I sure hope this helped. Best wishes.

The water overflows the tube even though it is set at a low water level


Sounds like a faulty water level switch. It is a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the appropriate cycle. Check for any obstructions in, or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

La Trisha, There could be many reasons for the leak, however usually all leaks are visable. Your model is a direct drive pump and motor and I have seen a lot of these pumps go bad and leak. You will have to remove the front panel. There should be 2 clips, one on each side of the washer top. Push a putty knife in these clips and the front panel should pop out from the top. Now you will be looking right at the pump on the bottom. It is held on with 2 clips and 2 clamps, a real easy fix. When you remove the front panel, let the washer fill a little again and see if the water is pouring from the pump. You will also be able to get a look at all the other hose attachments. The part number for the pump is 3363394. Good luck..
