Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

Maytag Washer overflowwing

We have a Maytag Performa, I think it is about 8 years old, series PAV2300 top loading washer that just last night kept running. It would fill all the way up and continue to run water non stop till we manually shut it off, and then would not drain. water was pouring out of the bottom of the washer. I've checked all the hoses for clogs, loose connections, found nothing. ANy thoughts?

    Thanks for the advice, I did check that hose, it too was disconnected so I put it back on, and the thing STILL over flowed! After doing some more research online, I determined that more then likely my Water Level Switch went bad. Ordered the part online, through this website, ran about $70 after tax and shipping costs. Real easy to replace behind the control panel, less then 5 minutes and the washer was working good as new! Problem Solved!

I had the same problem. My whole basement flooded. Inside the back (you can see it thru a small hole 1/2 way up on right) a small white hose connects to the water shut off collection area. This hose carries the water from the tub to the collection area and tells the machine to cut off for the size of load selected. Mine had come undone and so the machine could not sense it was full and the water poured all out the bottom. I simply removed the small gray panel at the bottom on the back and reached up inside to reconnect.

Lopsided during spin

  This can be caused by a brake that has failed.  Try to spin inner tub with washer off.  It should NOT turn.  If it turns the brake is bad and is allowing the tub to spin when agitating.  This causes clthes to bunch up.
