Maytag washing machine

I put water running and clothes in washer, the water level is right, but the washing machine does nothing on any cycle, like there would be no power.  It is a top load washing machine.  It is now filled with water and won't drain or spin, or anything for that matter.

The lid switch is bad on your washer. Either replace it or bypass it.

It is possible that poor water flow may be the culprit. Most washers operate on a water level system. The water levels have to be reached before the next cycle begins . If the water flow is slow this can extend the run time. To remedy this shut water off to unit disconnect hoses at unit. There usually are screens inside each hose connection on washer gently remove these and clean them.reinstall in washer. Before reattaching hoses put the unattached ends in a pail and turn the water on to flush out the hoses. Then reattach them and see if this solves the problem. Hope this helps.

Washer immediately goes into wash cycle when filling with water on initial start.At the end of the spin cycle ,washer dumps water back in to drum.Also,it's not getting the detergent out of clothes. Maytag...

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

First, make sure the 4 shipping bolts have been removed, and that the machine is level front to back and left to right BOTH! Some machines prefer to be high in the front. VERY IMPORTANT Must have a minimum of clothes & towels, sheets or blankets to wash. DON"T wash 2-5 item loads (small loads)
run machine at least 2/3 full of dry clothes. These machines are built to wash more per load, also because of the many technical parts of the machine, sensors and relays, the machine decides how much water to use not the user! Some "Old Schoolers" have a real issue with the lack of water and unclean clothing... most complaints are user error. Enjoy the new front loading technologies! Cheers! Happy Washing.

My maytag topload washer overfilled,

It isn't a sensor problem, it sounds more like your water level tube has pulled loose. This is attached to the outer drum itself. You can see it when you remove your front cover to the right of the outer tub. This tube uses the pressure generated from your tub water level to push air up to your water level selector, which has a rubber membrane that flexes and closes 2 contacts as the water level makes the rubber expand. If that tube is off, the water will just keep running.

Can''t get my clothes out... water still inside

does it have a dial that you can manually turn to start the next cycle? You can usually drain the water by pulling the drain hose out from the wall drain behind hte washer....( usually just shoved in the drain not attached) but be aware that when you hold the hose below the water level in your washer it will start to drain. Then perhaps the door will unlatch.

Water fills the tub then nothing happens.

it does not aggitate? Thats the cycle that allows the water to wash the clothes. It may be broken, I have had that happen a couple times. I would take the aggitator off and see if the teeth in the groves are worn out, It happen's when used alot. Commen problem and easy to replace.

Washer water level low, clothes come out dry !!

This is the water saver feature and the only solution may be to put it on the maximum wash cycle to get clothes really clean.
These washers normally get the clothes almost dry.
