Re: Maytag washer will not work

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. (consult your manual to know where/how filter is cleaned). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. Power off the wall, open behind the machine you will find a thin tube coming from the switch area to the exit pump area. Carefully disconnect this pipe from the top & blow into it, it should be free, if not unblock or replace. You can insert another pipe into the top & blow, you will hear a click; it means your presssure switch is okay. Refit carefully. This thin pipe adjusts your water level in the machine. Dont forget the exit hose behnd your machine is inserted at a particular height, abt 3 feet from ground.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Maytag top load washer water runs but doesn't fill.

Drain is to low. You will have to raise the drain hose above the top of the washer. Whats happening is the water is siphoning out as fast as it goes in.

Maytag legacy series tub wont fill

Your drain hose is too low or there is no air gap where the hose enters the drain line.
This causes the water to siphon out as it fills.

Maytag Legacy Series Top Load Washer model SAV515DAWW When filling, the cold water just trickles in and takes a long, long time to fill. When I unscrew the hose from the washer and turn the water on it...

From what you have said, you may have a bad solenoid in your water fill valve. it's the rubber piece under the debris screen. if you can get that out and replace it, you'll be golden.

Maytag legacy series washer not holding water

Same problem here. But according to Maytag Service, the draining pipe may be too deep inside the draining tube on the wall, thus creating a siphon effect and not allowing the tub to fill.
Their suggestion is to ckeck the pipe and make sure no more than 6-8 inches are inside the draining pipe. This should take care of the suction. We'll see, Imma do that when I get home.
