Check behind water level switch for a clear plastic vacuum line that attaches to level switch It attaches to the bottom of tub on the other end. As the tub fills , pressure fills the tube up to the level switch and turns off the water at the desired level
If this tube comes off it won't cut off at any level (overfills)

There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

I have a maytag performa top loading washer, model # PAV3240AWW, that overflows. It doesn't happen every time and it doesn't matter what size the load is or what cycle I am using.

You have sand and sediment in the sump base of tub. All you di is remove the rubber hose on the water level switch and blow out the tube with your mouth. You will feel it when the **** is out of there. Then reconnect that hose tightly to the switch and pump out any remaining water in the tub. here are some repair photos

Water dose ot stop when washer is full. It continues to run.

If you disconnected power and water still flowed, replace the water valve. If water stopped flowing when power was disconnected, clean out tube from tub to water level switch.

GE WJRR4170 washer comes out of overflow tube on super load. It does not on Large load size. I have the front off and can see a large difference in water level from large to super size. Is this adjustable?

I have a 2005 model GE washer that would overfill only on SUPER size load. After looking around on the web, then inside the machine, I checked the tube from the tub to the switch, no problem there. Then I found an adjustment screw on the load size selector / pressure switch (all one piece). I moved it one turn clockwise, then ran a test cycle. I got lucky on the first try... no more overflow, the water comes up just above the top holes in the tub. I hope this will help others.

Frigidaire fwx833as2 getting water on floor in wash cycle

Actually there are three fairly common causes for this:

The machine may not be properly leveled, and will go out of balance when spinning, no matter how carefully you load it. The drum tilts to one side and sloshes over the gasket at the top.

The pump might be blocked up badly, causing the water to not drain adequately, which can cause the water to be forced upward and out due to the building centrifugal force. These machines are designed to drain as they spin at a fairly steady rate. If something interferes with the draining, but doesn't slow the spin down, this can result.

Finally, the maximum water level switch (sometimes also called an overflow prevention switch, among other names depending on manufacturer) may be faulty. Normally your water level is controlled by the load size selector. However, on some machines the maximum load size setting is actually limited only by the overflow prevention switch. If yours is one of those, this could explain your problem.

Overflowed on Large load size

i think the water level sensor tube got filled when you had it on it's side, then after the first spin and drain cycle, the tube was again cleared out and ready for real action.
