It may be that the water inlet valve isnt cutting off completely or it,s not getting a signal to cut off.

Maytag washer (LAT7400AAV)shuts off during rinse cycle


The machine control board is programmed to allow a maximum continous fill time of six minutes
or an accumulated fill time of 8 minutes for each full wash cycle.
If the required fill time exceeds the time limit, the washer will shut down.
This is to prevent flooding in the event there is a loose hose clamp or damaged air dome hose.
Check the incoming water lines for a minimum pressure of 20 psi.
If lower, the customer can use smaller clothes loads and reduce the pressure to 10 psi.
An alternative solution would be to change the plastic inlet screens to metal screened washers
and remove the nozzle extender found in the water valve inlet hose near the dispener inlet."

My washer fills and doesn't stop. I try to advance it to the spin cycle but none of the cycles work. I changed the lid switch because it wouldn't fill at all. Now it fills and nothing else. Tested...


The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

Fill cycle stops before full


It's underfilling The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Washer only fills part way before agitation begins


The water level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. The switch is usually a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level rises the pressure increases on the air in the tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water, and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you will probably need to replace the switch. Hope this helped.

As a temporary workaround, until you repair/replace the valve - you can shut the water off at the tap. Frequently, that will get the water valve in the machine to shut off, and when you reopen the tap the water won't be running (until the next time the machine wants to fill). You can babysit the machine, shutting off the water when necessary, and it will eventually wash your load.

Washer is not filling during rinse cycle.


Sounds like the water is being siphoned out by the drain hose. Check to see if the drain hose rises above the top of the tub.
