Water won't cut 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?

    We bought a Maytag washer, not sure which type, from someone and used it once and when we came back it had flooded the basement like the spin cycle never happened. When we tried to turn it on again, the red light comes on but it doesn't do anything. Did we not hook it up right or does it need repair?

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.

The water will not go into tub, keeps overflowing and flooding my laundry room


If the water will stop filling when you stop the machine, then you need to replace the "pressure switch" on the unit. Here is the part to order.

If you have to turn the water off at the faucet to get it to stop filling, then you need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the unit. Here is that part to order.

I would recommend calling your homeowners insurance and having them take care of the damage. As far as what is wrong with the washer? That needs to be diagnosed. I found this link: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/200684-why-does-my-maytag-washing-machine-overflow

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

I have a Maytag washer, once it is finished washing and spinning and stops running, water keeps dripping into the washer. Why? In a day or so it will almost fill up with water.


First turn the water off at the wall. You have a bad mixing valve.

Write down your model number and then do a google search for Maytag parts. I like Partselect.com and Repairclinic.com both are reputable sites.

Water won't shut off


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.

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.
