I have a maytag top loading washer. the washer if set to medium load or large or super large load only fills to the half full level,


My maytag has a rubber tube that goes from the bowl up to the level sensor. I would try removing this tube and blowing it out to make sure that it is clear and not perished.

After washing 2 loads the machine won't fill to high level it only fills 1/2 way


You have a faulty fill valve. Return/ replace you washer if under warranty. If not then you will have to replace your fill control valve. That valve is where the knob for the fill level is.

FILL CONTROL DOES NOT WORK


Pressure switch needs replacing or adjusting. Don't over adjust. Turning screw in increases water level.

Washer just keeps filling and never advances on large and medium loads only


Your drain hose is pushed too far down into the drain so when you select the larger load sizes the water is being siphoned out as it goes in due to the pressure differential.

I put a fairly large load in washer. As the washing started I needed to add an item. I was surprised that the machine had very little water in it. Is there a way to add more water. Also when soaking I had...


The Series 10 and 11 machines have three level fill points the Series 12 and above have two level fill points.

I know Bulky Items wash selection will give you a High water fill which is only 7 inches or so of water in the wash basket. 3.5 inches of water for a medium fill.

You can turn on/open the water inlet valves in Service Mode but I would not recommend that. A manual fill as you did is the only safe way to set the additional water level IMOP.

Fill will not stop


you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

Over filling


pressure switch pipe is either blocked or damaged, the weight of the water pushes air up the pipe to activate the switch to stop the water filling, for some reason its not doing so,

this is a small thin pipe that goes from a point in the machine low down, to a little round flat object (normally) up near the top of the machine inside up near the top

drain the machine and clear out the pipe at the bottom where it joins  the drum or whatever, make sure joints are made good
if i have helped please rate me
