Question about Maytag Washing Machines
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.

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.
