Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Note sure how old of a machine this is. I am assuming that this is a Maytag.
Things to check,
1.Underneath machine check belt or belts(2 belts on older style)
2. Check drain hose for obstructions.
3. open cabinet and check for blockage in the pump and hoses.(old style opens with 2 screws at the bottom front)(newer style top there are 2 clips left and right of front panel about 2" in from the corners push in on clip with butter knife or other thin bladed object and pull up on top at the same time.
If this is not a Maytag or you need further assistance please let me know.

This is a simple design. The motor goes in one direction for wash and that keeps the water in the tub. To remove the wash water and prepare for rinse the timer reverses the motor making it turn in the opposite direction. This does 2 things, pumps out the water and spins the basket. So what can go wrong? Bad lid switch,bad pump, Bad Thrust washer, or bad timer. As far as water going in the tub that is a weird one, coulld it be the water level pressure switch tubing has vibrated off? I have seen that. This whole problem might simply be a worn out belt. I have a wonderful link to a pictoral which shows how to replace the thrust kit:

Please check the bellow link to get the probable cause of why the machine is not draining…most probably a clogged drain hose stops machine to drain...
As far as the over flowing is concerned the water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.
Let us know if you want to know something more else please accept the suggestion.

Hello Dorothy - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.
