Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
I had the same problem, its the water-fill hose sensor located at the back of the tub. Sometimes it pops off if the tub goes out of balance, (poor design, no clamp on it) so if you can get in there see if the hose is properly fitted over the connector to the tub, happened twice to me, an easy fix, go by a clamp to keep it on.

If your washer is overfilling,or continuously filling check these:
A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that
it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been
turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water
into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially.
If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level
switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine
overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's
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. You can
either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level

sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.
