Question about Washing Machines
Regardless of machine being on or not???sounds like a faulty water inlet valve youll need to replace the valve..
If the water level just overfills and floods over the top of washer but turns off when the unit is shut off, then it sounds like a bad fill switch.

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

First turn the water off at the wall. You have a bad mixing valve.
Write down your model number and then do a google search for Maytag parts. I like Partselect.com and Repairclinic.com both are reputable sites.

Testimonial: "Great help. Thank you."
Hello, welcome to fixya.
Based on your post I understand you have a "F21" error problem with a Maytag washer, the error on these units built by Whirlpool (such as yours) means an excessive drain time or excessive suds was detected as you may or may not already know.
If you follow the link to my solution to this error designed specifically for "do-it-yourselfers" you should be fixed up in no time. (It's much quicker for me than pasting or retyping the complete solution several hundred times, that's how common this is)
Thank you for visiting fixya for your washer inquiry. Please take a moment to rate my assistance both here and on my tip link and leave a brief testimony.
