Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
What is the machine model number so I don't waste your time or mine. If it's a FAV6800A or FAV9800A I can help you.
If you pull the power to the machine while the machine is filling with water will the water stop flowing?
marka19 we are in a model specific forum. I would need to know the model number and s/n of the posters machine. I watched the vid and I know the FAV6800A/FAV9800A machine very ell and the vid would not get the forum member even close to solving the over fill issue for a FAV6800A or FAV9800A machine.
A true DIY Washer repair forum will ask for Model Number and S/N before you post any comments for support.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/toppressureswitchvideo.html this will walk you thru the inspection and replacement of this part. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Try resetting your water level control. If that doesn't help then set the water level control to the lowest setting and observe if level exceeds that setting. If so, you may possibly have a faulty water level control, or an obstruction in the air dome or water level control hose. This can be a tricky 1 to diagnose for a novice.

In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!

SOURCE: water keeps going and overflows
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
You will have to open the top panel for steps below
Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.
Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.
You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.
Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.
Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill
Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin
If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.
If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.
Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.
Thanks for using FixYa!
Then remove the vacuum
