Question about Washing Machines
Maytag washer (legacy series) starts to fill with water it gets about a third of the way and the water starts draining while the washer is still trying to fill. Have releveled.
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.
