The first place to check is the water inlet valve solenoids. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference.
The second possibility would be a faulty water level switch. This is 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. Check the plastic tube for any damage or obstruction. The switch can be tested using a meter in the same manner as the solenoids.
These are a couple of likely causes. Sure sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

I have a Maytag Neptune washer (model MAH5500BWW) that won't completely drain. It goes through the normal cycles but, but water still remains in the tub. Could the pump be out and how can you tell if...


Check the pump out flow of the drain hose, is it a good strong flow or does it seem weak and restricted. If the drain is slow the machine will stop before it is empty. Also if the drain hose is not vented, mounted too high in the air, or has a piece added on making it longer, it may degrade performance.

The Inlet Water Solenoid valve may be stuck open not seating properly.

The Pressure Switch may not be signaling the Control Board to close the water valve on proper fill level.

But let’s start off with the easy test first. If you pull the 120VAC power cord from the service outlet will water flow stop?

If we need to troubleshoot further are you a DIY’er that’s wants to try to DIY the fix?

If not maybe we can point the Service Company in the right direction to bring out parts on the first service call….. Rich

take the lid off attached to the inlet valve to the dispenserr you will see a little white mechanisim in line with them. this is called your flowmeter take it off and blow through it is should sound like a cazoo. put it back on and try to do a wash cycle. if this doesn't help you need a new flowmeter. also if you take the kick panel off you will find the tech sheet to help you diagnose this problem. Always first check your hoses if you have flood hoses get rid of them next get a bucket and see if water is comeing out of the hoses next check you inlet valve screens see if there is sand in them if there is clean them.

If the only way to stop the water flow is by turning off your faucets, replace your fill valve. If you can control the flow by unplugging the unit then you have an electrical problem, causing power to get to the valve. This is highly unlikely, but possible.
