Question about Washing Machines
I have an old maytag washing machine (#LAT8210AAW) which works great other than this one problem which recently surfaced. When the machine is filling with water prior start the wash cycle, it will not stop filling the tub, and is now actuallyu overflowing the tub, regardless of whether I have the load size button on small or large. Any suggestions? Thanks
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.

I had the same problem with our "GE Profile SensorWash" ... It would not quit filling. I took out the top 4 screws on the top of the control panel which allowed it to tip down. I saw that the pressure switch contol was on the left - it had a clear(or white) tube about the diameter of a pencil connected to the back of it. If you follow that tube down, you'll see that it connects to the lower left of the plastic tub. I simply pulled the tube from where it connects to the tub, and using my mouth, repeatedly blew and sucked into the tube several times. I could hear the switch activate each time I did this. Maybe the switch was just stuck, but for ever what reason, the machine started performing like it should! I think if it happens again, I will just replace the switch itself.
