Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer

Will not work

I loaded the machine, it filled with water and then it stopped working. I unplugged it and let it sit all night and plugged it back in and nothing. I don't even hear the sound of the motor when I pull the timer to start. It just doesn't do anything. Can you help? Can it maybe be the timer?

Check the lid switch first, can you hear any "clicking" just before the lid is closed, try opening and closing a few times listening closely for he click, if not sounds like a bad lid switch(not recognizing the lid is closed and for safety reasons will not advance further.(far more common issue hen the timer)

Why dose water keeps filling wash when off oasis he 27082 top load

The timer turns the water on to fill, the pressure switch turns it off. If the water contacts are welded together (can happen over time) then the water solenoid will be on all the time. Easy way to check. Unplug the unit, then remove the electrical plug from the water valve (hot or cold depending which one is causing the issue) plug unit back in. If water stops filling the timer is bad. If the water does not fill then the timer is fine, but the water valve solenoid is bad.

The water is continually running in my maytag atlantis it seems like it has lost its ability to stop the fill process at the right time.

Try unplugging the machine then plug it back .. this may reset the electronics .. if not ... call a repairman.

My would fill up with water then not spin. Then it would do nothing. I called a repair man out it was the safety switch. You remove the top where the dial is and to the left side of the machine you will see a black connector, it plugs into the switch, the swtich will have a green ground wire. I replaced the switch it works great. The switch is $8 on amazon.

Our Kenmore 800 washer will stop from time to time after a water fill, either initial or rinse. It will just sit there full of water. It is not the lid switch. Any ideas?

Possible that the water level detector/controller which is a pressure switch is not activating when the water fills up. If you look on the sides there is a small opening on the tub that has a flow tube attached to a unit which is a diaphragm what works with pressure to activate the contact.
So this can be defective to cause the fault. Similarly remove and plug back all the connectors , contacts to ensure there are no loose connections.

Water fills washer even when it is unplugged

Replace fill valve. It is located where the water hooks up to washer. Easy to change. The valve gets plugged with sediment and needs to be replaced.

Matag top load washer model # LAT9604AAE filled but no agitation

If just getting the water out is your main goal, this can be accomplished using a shop vacuum.
Be sure to unplug the power cord before attempting any repair! Another way to drain a machine is to use a bucket. Put the discharge end of the drain hose from the washer into the bucket, making sure the hose end is higher than the level of the water in the washer, and slowly lower the hose and bucket until the water flows into the bucket. Raise the bucket and hose end back up above the level in the machine tub to stop the flow. Repeat until the machine is empty.
Give the machine a try after removing some of the water as you may have tripped a limit switch and the unit may just be overfilled
