Maytag PAV2300 Not filling

My washer does everything except no water comes in. As soon as I push to start it agitates with no water.

Most probably either a faulty water valve or no electrical power to the valve. If you can, while the agitation is going on remove the electrical connector from the valve and check for voltage. If there is voltage, then the problem is with the valve itself. If not, then it could be an electrical controller problem.

My washer fills with water, then when its about time to start agitating, it just makes a humming noise, and doesnt agitate


You may just simply need a new belt. If not there could be 2 other issues, like something being stuck in the drain pump, or possibly a bad motor. Does it have any strange smell coming from underneath?

Machine fills up with water then when its suppose to agitate it just stops working will turn timer & push knob in & out & reset then it will work


How long do you let it sit after the water fills up, somtimes the timer will take a little extra time to get to the point that starts the agitation cycle.
When it dose this, without pulling the knob out, turn the disk on the timer clockwise 1 click and see if it starts up agitating, if it dose dont worry about it it is normal

Maytag top loading washer fills up but won't stop filling on the rinse cycle. Doesn't do it every time. Sometimes it will start filling again after it agitates for a few minutes.


Check the fill control device and the tube that goes to it. Make sure there is not any debris in the outer tub where the tube connects. You may be able to push the drum aside to check.

Wont drain,spin,or agitate


You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

Agitator wont spin


Water level controls - The water level control is also know as a pressure switch, this is where you set the water level ( small - medium - large ). The water level control is responsible to shut off the power to the fill valve and direct that power to the timer so the washing machine can start up. The WLC has electrical contacts in it that sends power to the fill valve and when the WLC is satisfied the water level is correct the electrical contacts open power to the fill valve and send the power to the timer and the washer starts. Picture of this here. How the water level control knows when it is time to shut the water off is, a air tight hose runs from the outer washer tank to the water level control. As the water fills the outer tank air is pushed up the hose, depending on which setting you have made ( small- medium - large ) is takes a certain amount of this pressure to make the WLC cycle over and shut off the water and send this power to the timer. If this hose develops a leak or a pin hole the washer can over fill as the WLC may not be able to shut the water off. The water level control can also break down and allow the washer to over fill as well.
Testing a  water level control or a fill valve can be done by using a Testing a  water level control or a fill valve can be done by using a ohm meter or a volt meter. Testing a  water level control or a fill valve can be done by using a ohm meter or a volt meter. Testing a  water level control or a fill valve can be done by using a ohm meter or a volt meter.
A couple of tips from readers (Thankx!! ):
~ If you have a loose hose on the water level control or tank end, use a plastic wire tie to help hold the hose tighter and make a tight fit.
~ The water level tube (tube that runs from the square box), access panel on the outer drum where the bleach tube also ends) from the pressure sensor switch (front panel) can become clogged.  Or the two holes from the outer tub into this square box panel on the outside of the outer tub can become clogged. Either clog, I am told by my help repair guy can cause the sensor to think that there is still too much water in the tub and so will not allow motor to activate spin.
~ If the water level control contact is bad, it may also stop the filling ok, but not tell the washer to start agitating.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
