SOURCE: Unable to control water level
Some water may have got into the pressure switch. Remove the pressure switch and see if you can shake any water out. Make sure the cables go back on the correct terminals. make sure the tub is empty when you refit the pressure switch, so no water is allowed to enter the pressure tube

An overfill caused by a failed valve will occur even if the machine is unplugged. Trace amounts of debris from your plumbing etc or even a deterioration of valve parts themselves can cause it to pass water while off. This can be as slow as a drip but given time it will overflow. Water level switches are by necessity highly reliable parts and when they do fail they usually "fail safe" in other words not allow any current to the water valve. Overfills that are not due to a bad water inlet valve are usually traceable to a pinched, plugged or disconnected air hose. The location of the switch varies. Sometimes it's right behind the water level knob. On others like front loaders it's inside the machine, usually above the tub and at the end of a length of clear plastic tubing.

SOURCE: Removing the top
the pressure sensor is inside the control panel, the panel is screwed closed from the rear
you initially check that the plastic air line is attached at top and bottom
top is easy
to reach the bottom
the top of the washer must be removed, unlock the two metal clips at the front ~3 inches from the edges by sliding a putty knife or other blunt blade between the front panel and the top
tilt up the top
visully inspect the air line running from the top left to the bottom of the drum/tank
usually the top comes off
test that first,
because if the bottom is off, there would be water running all over the floor as the pressure sensor attaches below water line
if both hose ends are attached remove the top end and blowe down it, any water in the line messes up pressure readings
the water level sensor is adjustable
remove the water level sensor body from the control panel, there is a lock clip on the right side of the control body
there is a 1/8th nut next to the shaft the knob sits on
clockwise to raise water level
counterclockwise to lower water level
if turning the adjuster has no effect, the spring inside has broken, not weakened, and the control body should be replaced.
water level control bodies are common to many models and makes, the local parts store will have a suitable one, even if labelled ge or kenmore instead of maytag

Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.
