Re: water flowing out of the machine
I woulds assume that the air line responsible for monitoring water level has disconnected form the side of tub. with a screwdriver you can pry the main top up. approx, 3-4 inches in from either side of the front panel( where teh top meets the front panel, youll find a spring type clip that with some pressure will release0 and allow you to flip the ,main top backwards. afet that yo can look down the left rrear side of drum and see the 1/4 plastic tubing( i would assume dangling there) reconnect to the side of drum adn all should be good.

your fill switch is either bad or "gllitched" and the timer cannot move until this switch senses the right amount of water for the load unless its an electronically sensed water/load capacity filled machine,when it starts,the water fills the unit and the pressure switch shuts the water fill off when at selected water level and powers the timer to continue the wash cycle,it works off a "bellows" on air pressure to change a switch by air pressure to operate the machine when full of water
you need to check the drain pump for anything that may be obstructing the flow of water.If the water is coming from the bottom of the tub the you mif=ght have a bad tub seal. You can use a screwdriver and push the tabs in on the lid to lift up the lid and remove the two screws from the front panel on the bottom and remove the front panel. and check all the hoses from the tub and the drain pump.if there is still
Fill switch could be bad, or fill tube could be plugged making water not stop and it keeps filling. The fill tube goes from fill load selector switch to bottom of tub. Remove from top and blow it out. If this doesnt work replace water load size selector switch.
Check first for cracks in the tray by inspecting the unit during the drain. You will have to remove the panel to see better. There may also be a problem with the drain valve. It may not be opening properly and water that is rushing out flows outside causing to spill over the floor.
If there are filter screens in the lines, are they clogged?
If set to warm, does any water flow at all?
If there is no water flow, first check the water level switch to see if it is working...this is located on the bottom of the machine...it is generally round and has a tube running to the tub and two or more wires. It should have closed contacts to let the water valve work.
If there is some water flow, the valve is likely bad or the supply is clogged.
If the switch is continuous, the problem may be the timer.
I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container. Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.
