    The dishrack has been slowly disintegrating after a technician put a chemical in the dishwasher in order to remove calcium deposits. Where can I purchase another lower dishrack for our Maytag Performa?

Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

My Maytag performa series LAT2500AAE fills to the medium level no matter which setting I use. It does NOT overflow.


If your infinite water level switch has a reset, perform this before changing the water level setting prior to your next load, this is usually done by rotating the knob to the reset zone, then back to your desired water level setting. If your problem still exists, you will most likely need the water level switch replaced Part# 22001776. Pleazer Appliance...

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

Maytag washer overfilling


Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.

CHECK your stand pipe hasn't fell over (the one the drain hose goes to when emptying)If not,Either the pressure switch is broke or there is a hole or split in the pressure switch rubber hose.This switch stops the water when it reaches required level.
