Water won't shut off

My maytag washer flooded my utility room because we couldn't get the water to stop running in washer. we turned it to spin, that did nothing. we even turned it off and that didn't work. finally we unplugged it and that stopped the overflow. washer is only about 4 yrs old. is this something we can fix or can it be fixed?

Experienced a similar matter w/ ours that resulted in $3000 worth of floor damage in our house. The solution was an $85 service call for a tech to come out and reconnect a tube that detects when the machine has filled to the proper hight. Without this mechanism in place the washer thought it needed to continue filling (in our case it fille for 2 hours while we were gone). Sorry, never learned the proper name of this water pressure sensor.

SOURCE: water won't cut off

if you have to shut the water off at the source you need a new water inlet valve. If not then you need to replace the pressure switch.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

The cold water will not stop running during cycles


The load selecter switch has a hose hooked to it that tells the water when to shut off, hose could be plugged with soap, take off of load switch and blow out, if water is still not shutting off then replace load selecter switch, if still doesnt work the only other thing is the fill valve, tis is where water hoses are connected to on back off washer, you will need to replace, water sediment usually clogs it up.

My Maytag Washer keeps running water and won't stop.


regardless of machine being on or not???sounds like a faulty water inlet valve youll need to replace the valve..

If the water level just overfills and floods over the top of washer but turns off when the unit is shut off, then it sounds like a bad fill switch.

Water overflow


Are you on a well? Often people with a lot of sediment in water get sick of the screens in water valve plugging up so they remove them. NEVER remove these screens. If any sediment gets into valve it can hold it open causing flooding. If you unplug unit and water still comes in you must replace valve.
