SOURCE: my washer won't stop filling
I have a Maytag that had that problem. Mine has a plastic tube inside of the machine that connects to a sensor. As the water level rises, some of it goes into this tube creating air pressure on a sensor that signals the machine that the water is at the selected level. The bottom of the tube had come loose and just needed to be put back onto the fitting. I accessed this tube by lifting the top of the machine, and it is in the back. Very easy to get at. I hope this works for you.

I had the same problem. The laundry room was flooded. After running the diagnostic check on in the machine it could not find the problem. Although I went to the http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/html/index.html website and went through the troubleshooting table and turned the cold water valve on and off, numerous time. The valve leaked intermittently which is why some people couldn't reporduce the problem. This is a $5 solenoid that was sticking and it caused me to flood my home. I'm not impressed with Maytag's (Whirlpool) engineering. The sould have a safety shutoff valve independent to the water valve that is tripped closed when the level switch is activated. This unit was manufactured in Florence. The damn Italians must have build this cold water valve after a wine break!

Your water pump is going bad most likely. This is easy to diagnose and also easy to repair. Under the control panel on top is a "tech sheet" that explains how to put the washer in "test mode". Set the machine in test mode and run the water pump independently and you will probably hear this same "schreeching" sound. The water pump runs at the begining of the wash cycle to recirculate the water and mix the detergent with the incoming fresh water. You also can "check" this by using the "PERMA PRESS" cycle. The perma-press does not use the recirculation feature, so the schreeching noise will be delayed to the first rinse cycle if the pump is bad.
The part number is 420325P and you can get them from http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net

Check the big rubber seal around the door for any holes or tears. Had the same problem, my husband had a screw in his pocket that torn a hole in the gasket.
