That usually would be your pressure switch and or the dome at your tub is plugged. take the consol off to the left side you will see a component with a hose attached to it take the hose off the pressure switch and blow through it with the tub empty...is it clear can you blow through it? if yes then your dome is clear. replace the pressure switch and this should solve you problem. sometimes i blow through the pressure switch too and sometimes this fixes that problem.

I have a maytag top loading washer. the washer if set to medium load or large or super large load only fills to the half full level,


My maytag has a rubber tube that goes from the bowl up to the level sensor. I would try removing this tube and blowing it out to make sure that it is clear and not perished.

When using my Tops injector the tubes only fill half way. What am I doing wrong?


There is a dial to control how high the water fills. It's try adjusting that. "Small, medium, large" etc. Otherwise you may have a bad float switch.

My washer is really loud and is bouncing around the kitchen we have just put new brushes in it as it stopped spinning but thats sorted now its got a mind of its own


Hiya,
Jumping washing machines are often caused by the simple things such as incorrect loading, when you purchased your machine it would have given you a load capacaty, for this machine i think it is quit large but it does have the options of extra settings 1 of which is a half load setting i would surgest you try a half load setting on 1 wash & see if this helps the idea behind this is that if your machine jumps even more than normal then you may be over filling it & if it reduces the amount of jumping then maybe you was under filling it, if the jumping remians the same then we can start to rule out reasons for the jumping.. that would be your starting point to resolve this problem.

Hope this helps

Water will only fill up half way when set for a large load and very little water when it's set at medium load.


put less of a load in to compensate the amount of water and save wear and tear on your washer :-)

Washer will not fill all the way.


you may have to adjust/replace the water level switch. it is located behind the control panel. the water level knob is attached to it. it does have a screw adjustment.
