Did you ever get an answer - all I see are ads :-(

We have the same problem. Not enough water to rinse - even with extra rinse selected. Even our laundry comes out the color of the laundry detergent. I'm sure this is a result of government regulations to reduce water usage. We'll contact Maytag tomorrow.

I have a Maytag Centennial top load washer. When washing in normal or heavy with large or super load size, the washer remains in sensing mode. Some water does start to fill, but never reaches wash cycle....


This unit does not handle a super large load as it advertised. When you put a super large load, the sensor is over-sized and will not move on the next cycle.

Washer starts agitation during water fill up and after spin cycle ends washer fills back with water and leaves clothes very wet.


I also have a Whirlpool top load Model # WtW57ESVW auto sensing load washer. I have it it almost a year and it has started to do exactly the same as described above. The repairman said today that it needed a "auto load sensing switch" which he has ordered for me.

Note - you can use your washer until the problem is fixed, but you have to make sure you manually stop the spin cycle prior to it just finishing, for that is the time period that the water starts to fill again.

I also noted that my local Lowes store does NOT sell this model anymore - probably too many customer complaints about this exact same problem. As soon as I showed the problem to the repairman this AM, he immediately diagnosed the issue - said that it was a recurring issue with this particular model.

I just purchased a Maytag load-sensing washer and I HATE IT. If you open the lid after it begins running, it will fill all the way up when the lid is closed, regardless of how few clothes are in the load....


Unfortunately legality no one can tell you how to bypass the lid switch, however I do sympathize with your feelings.This was their attempt to save water by having only a partial fill if you were doing a small load.by auto sensing the load. In my opinion this design Waste water because they took away the manual water level control and created an electronic nightmare.....You might just have to get use to adding all your clothes and detergent close the lid and no peeking Sorry I could not redesign this machine

Soap left in clothes


Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Do you take the “Sd” error code for high level of suds? If we are talking about a FAV6800A or FAV99800A and the series is 12 or more you have a 2 level sensing pressure switch. This will give you about 3.5” for mid fill and 7” for high fill. I have only seen the Bulky wash cycle fill to High level fill.

Are you using HE detergent and the amounts called for in Use & Care section of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual ?

If you have a series 10 thru 12 FAV6800A you will have 3 Level pressures switch sensing. Disregard the Low Fill setting IMOP it doesn’t put enough water in the machine for adequate wash. I believe that is why Maytag did away with it and went to 2 level sensing pressure switch in later series…………Rich

Lint collecting and sticking on some clothing


Did you sort properly? sort lint givers(towels) form lint takers(syenthetics)

did you over load the washer? the wash load must be balanced clothes should move freely in the water

did you select to correct water level?

did you suse enough detergent? use enough detergent to hol the lint in the water

Did you line dry your clothing? if so you can expect some lint on clothing?

check the following:
was paper or tissue left in the pockets

is your water colder than 70 decrees F washe water colder than 70 decrees may not completely dislolve detergent

did you use the proper cycle time for the load? reducing the wash time is another way to reduce lint

check to make sure the door is locking when it should. If the door isn't locking or sensing that its locked the washer will not go into high speed spin.

Water fill, discharge and noise problems


to reset the water level you have to turn the knob all the way over as far as it will go and then come back to large load.

Not enough water


run the machine empty. if the water comes to the bottom of the glass window, you're fine. No you don't need to see the soap suds either, too musch soap will cause the machine not to function properly and won't spin out all the water
