SOURCE: Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

tidalwave If the water continues to flow even when the washer timer and the power to the washer are off then you are right and the water inlet valve has to be replaced. If it does it only when the washer is on then it could be different problems. In that case the first thing you have to check is the water level switch. This is the device which controls the water level. Remove the power first.Open the control panel and you will see the switch on the left side. There is the clear plastic hose connected to the switch. Make sure the hose is not loose. This is one of the most common cause of overflow. If it got loose, drain out all water from the washer before you reconnect the hose. If this is not the issue then you have to check the continuity across the water level switch therminals. When there is no water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 12 (gray and orange wires). Whet the tub has filled up with water you should measure the continuity across therminals 11 and 14 (gray and light blue wires). If the continuity is wrong replace the water level switch. If you are going to do it, make sure there is no water in the tub before you will remove the clear plastic hose from the old switch. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

SOURCE: Cold Water Solenoid Problem

The fill switch has a diaphragm that could be damaged and not closing properly. I have personally experienced this problem before. The way water could be getting by the switch (even with no power applied) is simply water pressure in the lines. I don't understand why it would work during the spin and rinse cycles, however. If you say it's not a pressure switch problem (level sensor), then I would invest in a new fill valve. I hope this helps.

We had the small leak problem. It was a cut in the bellows at the door. Lower side. We could see it if we just spread the gasket just inside the door.

there is a pressure stat but these are reliable. a common fault is the wiring loom broken where it goes round the corner at the bottom of the door. take outer door panel off and inspect the wiring loom for breakage

Detergent dispenser does not dispense.


see the causes and remedies:
Most dispenser problems are due to being gummed up with detergent, fabric softner, bleach residue, and water deposits. First check the dispenser drawer by pulling it out of the dispenser itself. To do this push down on the tab in the back and remove. Check that all is thoroughly clean. No holes blocked up. Now there are several types of dispensers out there but most have holes in the top where it dispenses hot or cold water to the appropriate area. These holes can become plugged up. If you have really hard water I would say replace the dispenser if it is gummed up bad. Otherwwise remove the dispenser and thoroughly clean it out. Before doing this check the solenoids that allow water through the dispenser. The solenoids can be checked with an ohmeter but if all is clean and the solenoid does not open to allow flow replace the unit or solenoid. Connect your ohmeter and refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. You can also check for voltage going to the solenoid. If you have voltage when each solenoid should be working, example: When the machine should be dispensing fabric softner, The solenoid that allows water to flow through that area should have voltage. If it does replace the solenoid or unit.

there could be 1 of 2 problems with your unit and it`s not the start switch, if the water is not filling the likely problem is ether a defective water level censor unit, it is located at the end of a rubber tube and is disc shaped with the tube at the bottom and a wiring harness at the top, the other possibility is a defective water control solenoid located at the inlet of the water hoses, you can easily check the solenoids with an ohm meter, check for continuity across the 2 contacts located on the solenoid , the easier way to check the solenoids is if you use cold water only in you wash, select hot water, this will enable the hot water solenoid, if it still dos not fill then it is your water level censor that is defective.

My Kenmore Elite He4t front loading washer fills up with water when I'm not even washing clothes. I left some bed linens in the tub to be washed later in the week and when I opened the door to add some...


This condition is typically caused by faulty solenoid or solenoids at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Cold water problems. No flow. Already replaced houses and removed filter


If your are having a cold water supply problem, check the solenoid at the water inlet valve. I will attach a photo for reference. Use a multimeter or ohmmeter to test the solenoids for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve will have to be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore Elite washer will not stop filling


Dirt in your solenoids may be a problem. But other than that it could be bad solenoids in general. It could also very well be that the unit that senses the water level has a part broken. On the inside there is a tube that connects to the tub. When you add water it increases the pressure in the tube and signals the shutoff. Sometimes the connections on this tube go bad.. or the tube itself gets a hole.

Easy way to tell. Start the unit with the on/off switch. Wait a few seconds then turn it off again. If the water flow doesn't stop you're most likely looking at a solenoid problem. If the water flow stops when you turn the switch off then you're most likely looking at a problem with the water level sensor.

Solenoid on Aprilaire 600


solenoid valves dont just burn up just like that you have a recurring restriction due to bad water.Check the saddle valve at the water heater first then check for postive water flow at inlet to the solenoid valve,if you have water flow the valve is clogged with sediment.
