Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, the way to determine which is bad... while the machine is filling pull the power plug..if the water keeps filling it's the inlet valve that is going to be bad..if it stops filling it's going to be the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located in the control panel and has a small rubber pipe attached.once you have figured which it is replace it good luck.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..Mike

The mixer valve (water valve) solenoid has failed in the open position.

Change out the valve to repair.

SOURCE: Maytag Washer PAVT-1 continues filling with water to overflowing

Does it still do this with power to the machine off? If so it is your water fill valve. Because no power is getting to the valve it has to shut off unless some foreign particles are holding it open. Remove and replace the water fill valve if still runs water after power is off.

Here are some things on how the selector switches work: If it stops when you remove power look at these possibilities.

Water fill switches usually have an air tube that as the water level comes up the air pressure increases and causes the switch to go from fill to wash.
I have seen rodents chew holes in the air tubing and this could be the cause or you may have a bad switch.
Some times the switches also get out of calibration and need readjusting (especially if you have moved in altitude like up a mountain or into a valley).
If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesnt help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.

My washer keeps filling no matter the size I have


This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Water dose ot stop when washer is full. It continues to run.


If you disconnected power and water still flowed, replace the water valve. If water stopped flowing when power was disconnected, clean out tube from tub to water level switch.

Water won't shut off


Experienced a similar matter w/ ours that resulted in $3000 worth of floor damage in our house. The solution was an $85 service call for a tech to come out and reconnect a tube that detects when the machine has filled to the proper hight. Without this mechanism in place the washer thought it needed to continue filling (in our case it fille for 2 hours while we were gone). Sorry, never learned the proper name of this water pressure sensor.

Yes, I think that rubber tube measures water level. But I've never changed one. Good luck.

Maytag washer will not stop filling when wash cycle is first selected. Doesn't matter if I choose small, medium, or large load.


How do you get it stop filling? If it stops filling by just shutting the timer off you may have a bad pressure/water level switch, if you have too shut the water off too the machine at the wall then you have a bad inlet water valve.
