How can I fix a faulty vale water vale working incorrect

the pressure activated switch is turned on to control a shutoff valve when the pressure in the clear tube reaches a certain level. If the tube is blocked, it will not get the light pressure on the air trapped by the column of water. Boyle s law P1V1=P2V2,
so replace (or clean out) tube with the same ID tube or the volume inside will not be correct for the rising column of water to activate the pressure switch.

Connect up an ohm meter to the connectors then blow into the tube attached to the switch. The switch should click and the ohm metre should show readings from full deflection to zero. If no movement replace the switch. If switch does not click check tubing for blockages or splits and cracks. Still no click replace it

Will not start washing process.

Potential problems:
1. Your vacuum tube has simply come off. 2. There is a hole in your vacuum tube, 3. Or you have a bad pressure switch.
To check,
1. Pop the top open on the unit and raise it up (for specifically how to do this, I'll need need the make and model number). You may need to disconnect wires from lid switch, noting where they go to put them back. 2. Locate a clear rubber-like tube come from under the control panel and going down the the bottom of the tub where it is connected to a small nipple. If it is not connected there, reconnect making sure it fits snug. You're problem is solved. 3. If it is connected, disconnect it and gently pull the end of the tube to you. Inspect if for holes or cracks or cuts. If it looks good, put the end of the tube (you may want to clean it if it's dirty) and blow air in it, keeping the pressure up and listen for a click under the console panel. Try again. If you hear the click, listen for air escaping from tube, maybe a pin hole or more. 4. If you do not hear the click when air pressure is applied, you have a bad pressure switch and it must be replaced, assuming the tube is actually connected to the pressure switch under the control panel. 5. Replace tube onto nipple near the bottom of the tub and replace the top. Reconnect lid switch. 6. Take control panel off and insure vacuum tube is connected to pressure switch. If it is, remove tube and blow pressure directly into pressure switch. If you hear no click, the pressure switch is bad.
To help you further or help you find the part, I will need the make and model number.
Good luck, this problem is more simple than it sounds.

Finding the pressure switch and the pressure sensor tube

Water level switch is in the control area right behind the water level knob. There should be a tube conected to it. Follow the tub to the bottom of the tub. If this tube is not connected it will just keep filling. If you find the tube disconnected you will need to reconect the tube and drain the water and try refilling. If this tube is conected the take the tube off of the water presure switch and blow air through it to make sure it is not cloged and reconect, drain water and retest. if this still does not solve your problem your presure switch is probably bad and you will need to change it. every time you test you must drain the water so the tube will get air presure. If the tube has a crack or hose it will need to be replaced.

Danby DWM99W Top Load Washer - water over flows the tub - suspect pressure switch?

Two things to check. One ,when water is coming into tub, switch off at the plug and note if water stops or not.If it stops, then the solenoid is good. Remove the plastic pipe off the pressure switch and blow into the pipe. It must not be blocked. Clear if it is so. Check for any cracks:holes or breaks on the tube. Replace tube back onto pressure switch and remove opposite end. Blow softly and listen for a click. if so pressure switch is good. Replace tube and retry.

My Maytag Atlantis washing machine doesn't fill

maytag has had multiple problems with the neptune series (atlantis included) units. Test the pressure switch for function and continuity, and also make sure pressure switch tubing is free and clear of obstruction or pinching. Replace pressure switch or tubing if needed. Pressure control may be located in machine control board on some models, if this is the case and the tubing is checking good, replace the machine control, not the interface or motor control board, and then test. all should be checking ok.
