Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
I saw water flowing from the laundry room into the kithchen. the problem was the washer was running through it's cycle but the water didn't stop filling and the tub was over flowing.
I wanted to see if anyone ran into this before and where the problem might be before I call some one out.
Davedun: Take a look at the [water load or water level] switch from the inside & u may see a rubber tube coming out and going to the bottom of the washer tub.The rubber tube should be connected to a VACUUM switch.This switch works by pressure from the weight of the tub when it is being filled up with water.When u set the water level switch on a "lite load" ,as the tub is being filled the diaphragm is pushed down causing a vacuum to pull down another switch which causes the water to stop, causing your machine to start washing, rinsing, etc. This vacuum switch could be of many configurations\shapes\sizes & will almost always be at the bottom of the tub to measure the weight of water going in.
The key is a rubber (clear-see through, or black) coming from the top of the control panel going to the switch.
2nd. electronics sensors on the side of the inner tub ( that catches the water ) to measure water weight. Hard to find, because they could look like anything. Even I have trouble finding them!!
P.S. TURN THE POWER OFF AND UNPLUG !!!!
P.S.S. get back to me if u need some more help.
