Question about Maytag Washing Machines
My Maytag washer MAV8551AWW leaks water from the water inlet after cycle has finished. The tub was completely full and water was still dripping. I had to turn off the valves at the supply behind washer. Is the intermittent water control valve and the water inlet valve the same? How do I get to it and is it difficult to replace?

tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

ALL WASHERS COME WITH SCREENS AT THE
WATER CONNECTIONS.DISCONNECT THE HOSES AFTER TURNING OFF THE WATER.THEN,CHECK THE SCREENS FOR MINERAL BUILDUP.CLEAN THE SCREENS IF
NEEDED AND GO FROM THERE.
