Hello--My Maytag washer LAT8614AAE stopped while filling. It still spins, and stops spinning when top opened. I replaced water valve, so that wasn't the problem. Ideas? Thanks!

I would check the water level switch. It is activated when the water level is as per requested (low, medium, full). It might give the OK to the timer.

there should be a knob on the control panel showing small, medium, large maybe even super. that is how you change the water level. Its for different amounts of clothing your washing at a time. If you put in a few clothes then you have the option of using less water.

Whirlpool LF Error code

LF = Long Fill
LF flashes when the water level does not change for a period of time after the valves are turned on OR water has disengaged the basket but control does not detect a water level change.
Is water supply connected and turned on?
Are hose screens plugged?
Is water entering the tub? If so check pressure hose connection to machine/motor control.

The water level never stops, it just fills till it over flows

if on auto level select water level eg medium or low depending on amount of clothes this sometimes works dont use auto water level. If not check small pipe under touch board on top panel, make sure u unplug mains from plug pipe may be loose its small plastic goes to level sensor on right of board. If not level sensor faulty.

Maytag FAV6800AWW - Major overflow right after starting machine

Hi, If you turn the water source valve on and water starts filling the machine even tho the machine is off, change the inlet valve.
If you have to start the machine so water will fill but, the water does not shut off at the desired level, there is a problem with the water level switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Whirpool LSQ9200LQ Top Load water leaking on start of pump out

Transmission may be bad. When machinbe goes into very start of spin it should drain the water first and then machine will actually spin; tub should not be spinning. If it is, water cyclones up sides and will come out at tub cover. Only fix is to repl trans or select lower water level if I am correct in the diagnosis.

Washer will not fill before agitation

The settings on water level may be set on very low amount. Check see your water level is set on medium or full. You may be expecting the wrong amount on the low setting.
