Thanks for writing to

Is your drain hose stopped up with debris - have a double sink next to the dishwasher. You can plug both drains, one at a time with the water running in the sink while holding the other drain closed. Try it first and if it works, its free, otherwise you may find it's another issue like maybe a bad pump motor on the dishwasher.

Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Antifreeze capacity

Usually what I do is I'll get two gallons of straight antifreeze. I'll take one and pour half into another empty jug then I fill both with water. Pour one in then the other one until it gets full. Then crank vehicle then fill it again

Maytag washer empties as soon as it fills. Does not complete a cycle

Hi Terri.
If the machine actively pumps the water out while it's filling it sounds like a timer problem and would require a visit from a technician.
If, however it merely runs out while filling you probably have the drain hose in a position which allows the water to run straight through the machine.
Make sure the hose is above the level of the water in the machine. Be careful not to create a syphon.
Check the installation directions.
Good luck

The end of the hose should be above the water level in the machine

My car started over heating and I stopped on the side of the road and poured water into my brake fluid instead of my radiator and then drove it straight hone abou 7 mile

Brake fluid is hygroscopic (pulls in moisture from the atmosphere). Putting water in there is definitely very bad for the system because water will readily mix with the fluid and can actually boil as you made a hard stop.
First thing to do is remove the fluid from the reservoir using a turkey baster or siphon. Re-fill with fresh fluid, then bleed the front wheels, doing that 'till the master is nearly empty, Re-fill and do the same at the rear brakes. Repeat entire procedure twice. Unlike normal bleeding, you don't add while you are doing the procedure but run the reservoir nearly empty, only adding fluid when it comes close to empty. And, you begin at the front instead of the rear. Do not let the reservoir become empty or air will enter the system.
After completing the flush, it's a good idea to empty the reservoir and re-fill once or twice in the next few weeks just to make sure no more water is in there.
You didn't mention what you did about the overheating but make sure that's taken care of asap or the least of your problems will be the brakes!!

Spin cycle will not work will not refill with water. It acts like water is in the machine when it is empty. When you start the washer it does not fill with water it goes straight to the wash cycle

The pressure starter is faulty kindly replace the pressure starter even after replacing the pressure starter if problem exist may be main board faulty replace the main board

Bleach drains from compartment as soon as it is filled

Could you be putting too much bleach in? These things are usually designed to be self siphoning once the dispenser is full enough. The idea is that you half-fill it with bleach. At the right point in the cycle, the machine starts adding water, filling the dispenser up to the point where it siphons out until empty. If you overfill at the outset, the thing will empty straight away. If you're sure that isn't the cause, then take the dispenser out and check that the dam that keeps the bleach in place to start with isn't damaged (you may need to take a cover off the back of the dispenser first to see this).
