Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
Yes there is a sensor for water level. If you open the top lid of the washer (The entire top of the washer), use a small flat-head screwdriver inserted in the middle of the front metal panel where it meets the top metal panel (use a flashlight to see the clip inside. Push in on the black metal retainer clip and simultaneously pull up slightly on the top metal panel to lift it up. The top panel (which includes the top access door) will hinge at the back of the washer frame and will allow for full access to all internal parts associated with water level sensor at the tub itself. There is a small plastic nipple that comes up from the rear left (as standing in front of the washer like when you wash clothes) of the outer tub. This nipple should have a small clear rubber tube on it secured with a small spring hose clamp (use a pair of needle nose pliers to squeeze the clamp to get it off or on). The hose runs up to the back of the control panel (the part on top that has all the dials in it. To open the control panel to see if the hose is connected to the sensor, gently lower the top panel of the washer again and look at the very top of the control panel and remove the three screws that hold the face plate on and then tip it back (towards center of the top of washer) on its face and check to se if the other end of the hose is connected to the back of the water level sensor. The tube is clear so you can see if there is any wear (a hole) or a clog in the hose. Either of these problems will stop the pressure to get to the sensor and make it so that the washer will not know that the level is where it should be. IF the hose is worn, cracked, clogged, or was a hole in it, you will want to replace it with a new one. You can save a lot of money by just going to a local hardware store and get something that is fairly close to it will work fine. Should only be a few dollars. Also, check to see if you can look into the plastic baffle plate in the outer tube and see if it is plugged which will also cause the same result in blockage. Lastly if all that checks out then the problem is with the sensor itself which requires a replacement of it from an appliance parts center near you.
