Is it a pressure switch control,with a rubber/plastic hose.or is it electronic control.if it the first check the hose is still on or that the switch clicks when you gently blow into it.if its electronic it may be a board problem.

Fills with water then will not complete cycle


Make sure after the fill the water level pressure sensor switches the program to go forward.If the switch is erratic the program controller can work without the cycle completing.so make a voltage checkm on the level sensor the spin motor and the drain pump to evaluate if the controller by itself is faulty.

Maytag washer model MAV6451AWW - water does not shut off when filling. This started happening after I replaced the main control knob (knob works ok now) could I have loosened another connection which...


Hi,

This problem is caused by a faulty water level switch.

It is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub.
As the water level increases, pressure increases on the air in the tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle.
Look for any obstruction or defect in the tube. The switch can be checked for continuity with a multimeter. If it has no continuity the switch is defective..

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

My Maytag Atlantis washing machine doesn't fill


maytag has had multiple problems with the neptune series (atlantis included) units. Test the pressure switch for function and continuity, and also make sure pressure switch tubing is free and clear of obstruction or pinching. Replace pressure switch or tubing if needed. Pressure control may be located in machine control board on some models, if this is the case and the tubing is checking good, replace the machine control, not the interface or motor control board, and then test. all should be checking ok.

Washer is over filling.


AV,

Yup! I know what's going on (the tip off was when you said, "The water does stop when I push the timer off"). See? the timer, as I'm sure you know, supplies or "directs" power to each component in the washer... kinda like a conductor does an orchestra. When you push the timer knob to "Off", you shut down the symphony thereby removing power from all of the components. Make sense?

When you set the water level and pull the knob, the level switch tells the timer that the tub is empty and request water. The timer complies and sends power to the water valve. When the water level is "satisfied", the level switch tells the timer to remove power from the valve and start the "agitation" cycle.

Here's what's happening, the level switch isn't talking to the timer. I think the part number is 22002705, but I'm not sure because I don't have the full model number. Call you local appliance retailer and provide them with the full model number to be sure, OK? Since you already have the machine apart, it'll be easy to replace...

Oh yeah, here's a picture of it... see if this one matches the one on you machine. This might confirm the part number.

And another thing, now that you've experienced a washer flood (ain't it fun?), you might want to consider getting yourself one of these. They're super easy to install and it'll provide that extra bit of insurance against this happening to you again.

Don't forget to rate this solution. And thanks for using FixYa!

Washer is over filling.


Hi, Does water enter the machine when there timer is off or even if the machine is unplugged? If this is the case, the inlet valve needs replaced. If the water stops when the timer is turned off, there is a problem with the water level switch. Please let me know so that I can assist you further. Thanks

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.

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.

Washer fills with water , then shuts off , doesn't move to another cycle


Since you know about the lid and check switches, they are located under the splash (control)panel. unplug the machine and remove the screws holding the panel on. Using a meter check the switches for continuity and replace if they've gone bad.
