Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hey I have a Maytag PAV2300AWW and the first problem was the unit overflowed. So I tried blowing in the hose in the top panel and nothing.. Then, it started working again ( the water would turn off when it was supposed to) but you have to change the cycles manually and the machine will not agitate???

Pressure switch?

sounds like you are having a syphoning issue. caused by having the drain hose too far down the home standpipe. very common problem. test..fill the machine, high water level. when it stops filling turn off. advance into spin/drain for just a moment and shut off. listen to hear water still going down the drain.
repair.. raise the drain hose nearer the top of the stand pipe. also do not tape/seal the hose into standpipe. it has to breath. good luck. kihm washing machine drain hose installation Google Search

Maytag doesnt agitate. it overfills. wont automatically change cyles. bounces everywhere

With what you are describing, there is a busted or loose spring that holds the drum in the washer. When it breaks it can disconnect the water level sensor and so the machine does not know when it is full. Drain the machine and unhook it and lay it down and look underneath from the bottom for broken springs or shock absorbers. They can become broken from washing large loads when the machine spins and is off balance. Then you need to locate the water sensor and it can be a tube that runs along side the drum. IT may have come loose electrically or physically. You can also access the drum by prying up on the top of the machines main housing but you have to be careful not to damage the paint.

Maytag top load washer. the water does not shut off prior to the spin cycle and continues to overflow onto the floor. suggestions? thanks

It sounds like the pressure dome switch could be out or its in the hose for the dome it could be clogged or hose may be punctured.

To troubleshoot this you will have to access your washer.
Without model number it will be hard but im going to try. If you have an access panel at the bottom in front than take a flathead screwdriver inbetween the access panel and the front panel there are two tab metal that you have to push down to pry the access panel off. If you have a full front panel than at the bottom you need to remove two screws. Once you have the entire front panel off you need to lift up the top on each side there is a usually 3/8 nut holding the top to the sides. Lift up the top and you will see a hose going from a cylinder shape on the side of the outer tub near the bottom. follow the hose up to control counsel. Take hose off the top and check for kinks. Than blow into the hose from the top to make air bubbles in the tub. Its easier if there is some water in the tub. reconnect the hose to your pressure dome. Set top back down dont put front back on yet. try a cycle small load and see if it shuts off. Look for leaks along than hose. If you cant see any leaks and it does not stop. Spin the water out and take hose from bottom where tub is. Start another load on small wait for a few seconds than blow into the hose from bottom to activate the pressure dome. If the washer keeps filling with the pressure dome activated than its your pressure dome switch. If it stops like its suppose to replace pressure dome hose. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

My washer fills with water and keeps filling doesn't stop on the selected water level for the load. It doesn't wash because the water keeps filling. What's wrong with my washer? Help please (Maytag...

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

Washer won't stop filling with water

In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!
