Question about Maytag Washing Machines
I just purchased a Maytag LAW9406AAE model washing machine from a friend. It works well but the water fills all the way to the top of the basin regardless of what level setting it's on. I certainly don't want that much water for a small load. What could be the issue?
Pressure switch or a restriction in the hose from the pressure switch to tub. You may just have to disconnect from pressure switch and blow through it.

this could be either a bad pressure switch, located behind the control panel. it has a small usually black hose running down to the tub. more than likely since this is an older machine the hose has become worn in one spot and is leaking air. replace the hose and that shold do it. if not its the presasure switch.

you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain
also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain
you have a syphoning effect

Hello. Yes there is a fill level pressure switch. It is pressure activated by the pressure of water rising in a tube as the water rises in the tub.It's easy to find and easy to replace. Look for the tube and follow it to the switch. Parts for Kenmore are available at 1-800-516-9625 or at http:\www.sears.com.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed
