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.

Our washer keeps saying LD after every spin cycle. Is there anything we can do?

It takes longer than 5 minutes for the pressure switch to trip on pump out. Remove the hose on the pressure switch and blow out the sediment. Could be some junk in the pump but doubtful. that pump is a badboy on that washer. has it own motor. Might be the pressure hose has vibrated off the pressure switch. putting it back on there might be all it takes. Manual and more HERE

The cold water will not stop filling the washer. It continually runs to where it wants to over flow

remove the two screws one on each side of the top console,flip it up and on the left side you'll see a piece with a clear plastic hose line going to it,that's the water level switch or pressure switch that controls how much water fills into the washer.if the plastic line fell off or has a hole in it then this will happen or the pressure switch could be bad,you can take the hose off from the switch and blow into the line,no air should blow through it,if it does then there's a hole in the line,also you can blow into the hole on the switch very easy,you should hear a clicking sound but most likely the switch will be bad,they hardly ever go bad so check the clear line good.i think this is what you're talking about,if the water just keeps filling the washer even when it's off then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer,dirt gets in the valve and it can't close all the way and water just keeps filling into the machine,if this is what's happening then shut down the house water valve until you can replace the water valve on the washer,let me know what you find.the part for the pressure switch is W10337780 and it's around 30 to 40 bucks,the part number for the water valve is
285805 and it's around 30 bucks

Why dose my Karcher K2.35 keep blowing the gun hose off?

There is a good chance you are missing the black plastic clip that holds the hose into the trigger gun. If you look at where the hose goes into the gun there should be a flat slot where a black plastic clip would slide in and keep the hose into the trigger gun.

Keep getting an F1 code after starting washer. I have to keep pressing the cancel/pause button and then press start several times to get the washer going.

You must have trash or sediment in your pressure tube hose. b66bfab.jpgRemove it from the pressure switch and blow the stuff out then re-secure the hose and pump out any water in the tub. Then retry. Use this handy dandy service manual as a GUIDE

My Kenmore Elite HE 5T Steam Front Loading Washer keeps flashing the code F35. What does this mean? It is not in the manual.

F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.

Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Washer overflowing

is the pressure switch working. that would be the next thing that i would check. it's mechanical, so you'll just have to see if it engages.
