Won't stop filling with water

I have a Maytag washer that is at least 9 years old and the water intake valve? keeps pumping water into the machine even though I have pushed the knob control in and also I have turned it to the off position with the same results- it keeps pumping water in and overflowing. Thanks

Does the water continue to run when the washer is unplugged from power?  If it does, then there is something stuck in the inlet valve that is keeping it open.  Could be the result of mineral deposits.  If the water stops when unplugged then the water limit switch is defective.  Unlikely since the water still flows when control knob is in off position.

Maytag top loadind washer. Won't stop filling up.


Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.

Maytag Neptune MAH-1 won't stop filling with water


A couple things may be going on here... you may not want to hear, but the Neptune has a had many "consumer related problems".

If your complaint is "will not stop filling with water" I would access your inlet water-valve (typically blue with 2 black battery looking solenoids; where your water-lines connect directly), test for continuity and replace as necessary. Sometimes inlet-water valves also go bad where the complaint is: "no water comes in at all".

Maytag Washer (approx. 7 years old) has slow stream when filling


Follow the two inlet hoses from the back of your machine. They should each end at a valve (one for hot and one for cold). Make sure that these valves are all the way counter-clockwise and that the hoses are not kinked or pinched.

Maytag washer pours water out bottom instead of filling up


Check the water pump for physical damage from the move. If the washer was laid on it's side, you may have either snapped off the pump outlet or broke the pump body. You may have broekn the body of the water inlet valve fill flume. A visual examination should provide a lot of insight as to what the problem is.

Either you have a faulty water valve, which would either need to be fixed or cleaned, or you have constant power to the valve caused by a problem in the controller which does not allow the cycle to advance. If, as you say, it does not overfill, then apparently your water level control pressure switch is operating and causing the pump to turn on and drain as fast as it fills.
