Question about Maytag Washing Machines
During last few days, upon loading the washer and trying to set the proper water level, I noticed that the water level control dial was not responding/feeling right. Last night, trying to do a load, the water level was not responsive at all and the machine just kept filling up with water until I pushed the timer control off in order to stop think the machine would have kept filling up to the point of spilling over the tub onto the floor of the Appreciate any and all help.

Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will find a thin tube going from the pump area to the control point. This is the water level tube; untie this tube from above & blow into it, it should be free, if not free remove the blockage, see that it is not twisted, insert carefully. Or replace. This shd fix your water level problem.

This is very odd, and probably isn't going to be any help,,,, but i know that most top loading washers have motors that spin in 2 directions. 1 direction engages the transmission/gearbox which than makes the agitator go back and forth while also turning the water pump in a direction that actually sucks in air, or water. When the motor spins in the other direction the transmission/gearbox engages so that only the drum spins and the water pump now does its job and pumps out any water in the drum before and while its spinning. With this in mind, and the fact that you say the washer only spins,,,, its possible that the motor is only spinning in one direction allowing the washer to drain and spin,,,, but not agitate.

Possible explanation: Some water is left in the hose going up to the drainpipe b/c the pump can only pump water with water, not air... so when the last bit of water is sucked up, it 'stays' just the other side of the pump exit nozzle and keeps the drain tubefilled. This water gradually leaks thru the drain exit valve and back into the machine, sometimes siphoning standing water in the drain trap with it.
The valve is either electric solenoid or plastic/rubber clapper in a cylinder. Your call whether to fix or not depending on ease and cost. Probably a $20.00 part.

On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.
