Machine keeps filling up, replace pressure switch, still nohting, keeps filling up?


Hello dwl770 - If your washer won't stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:

1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.

2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.

3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.

- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.

If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.

My washer wont fill with water what seems to be the problem


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Maytag MAV5000 washer, water filling does not stop, small tube in back is hooked up.


Remove the small tube from the water level switch and blow through it to clear any clog in the air dome on the side of the tub.
Remove the small tube from the air dome and blow through it into the water level switch to reset it.
Then set the machine for spin and run spin cycle for 1 minute. Then try your fill again. If it does not work this time, replace the water level switch.

It was actually filling up and flooding the room. Found that a rat had chewed through a hose and repaired the hose inside the washer and it now works fine. Thanks

Washer won't stop filling


Remove the pressure switch hose and blow into it. Is it hard to blow through?
In the bottom right rear of the outer tub there is an air dome where the other end of the pressure switch hose is connected. The air dome can become clogged and prevent the pressure switch from working properly.
Also inspect the hose for any cracks splits or pin holes.
To access the air dome remove the cabinet shell as follows:

I will skip console removal as is seems you already know how...

With the console lifted;
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

In the bottom right rear of the outer tub you will find the air dome.

If I can assist you further, please let me know

Pressure Switch or Air dome?


Does it stop filling when you hit Start/pause or do you have to shut off water supply? The air dome is the black rubber piece that is clamped to the pump housing. Usually i find that clogged not letting the pressure sw operate proper. I belive the switch has 4 wires. It has 2 contacts, one closes with a small amount of water visible in tub, hi contacts close with water much higher - even filling bottom of boot.
