Usually that means, the solenoid that controls the water flow, has either failed, or the controller for it, has.

My amana front load washer just keeps filling. It is running out of the soap fill area. It is giving me code OE. Suggestions on what that means?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If the water keeps running, you need to check your water level switch. It may be defective. This switch controls the water level in the machine.

When you are washing ( spraying ) its fine but when you stop spraying the motor keep on purging the pipes are done up ok the filter and hose are clean can you help??? thanks

These pressure washers are really designed to fail... it is a good idea to NEVER take your hand off the trigger and to wash nonstop as long as the unit is running... it will prolong the life of your pressure washer... if you have warranty on the unit see if they can exchange it for you... if not I don't advise you to take it apart... they are cheaper to replace than fix. Use it until it dies.

Maytag MAH8700AWW water keeps running

Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. Use a multimeter or ohmmeter and check the solenoids for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Another possible cause would be a water level switch, but not with it running on only the cold water side. Hope this helps and best wishes.

95 firebird formula shoots water out of radiator cap and coolant cap when accelerating nonstop from about 20mph to 75mph or even past 75 mph.... does that mean its overheating? or does it need new hoses...

First it means get a new radiator cap, When the spring goes bad it releases at a lower pressure. You may need a new thermostat as yours is probably stuck open and the water pump just throws the water through.
