Maytag W-7 Washer water fill does not stop

My Maytag W-7 top load Washer water fill does not stop and the water level goes up and overflows. i suspect the small rubber tube that connected to the bottom of the drum. looks like a probe tube. it fell off its top clamp and i put it back, not sure at water level it needs to be. no leaks thru drum or joints- just overflow because of water fill
thank you for your help

Yes, I think that rubber tube measures water level. But I've never changed one. Good luck.

Roper top loading washer RTW440VQ1 will not stop filling up


The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.

Water level control switch not working. even i set water level to very low it just keeps filling and has overflowed. i am guessing that the switch needs to be replaced.


Hello,

It depending on exactly what your seeing that will determine the problem.

Does your washer start agitating and keep filling?? if yes it does start agitating and the water continuies to fill try disconnectiing the power and if it keeps filling what would be wrong is that the water inlet valve is sticking open and it would need to replaced

If the washer continues to fill and does not start agaitating would be a defective water level switch as you suspect it may be.If ya disconnect the power and it STOPS filling replace the water level(pressure) switch.

My washer fills with water and keeps filling doesn't stop on the selected water level for the load. It doesn't wash because the water keeps filling. What's wrong with my washer? Help please (Maytag...


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:

LSE7806A stack: the wash fills to the water level/load size selected. it starts to agitate then stops and begins to fill with water again which causes overflow, help please


Your fill sensor is leaking and allowing air pressure from the clear tube to seep out. First make sure your clear tube from the tub to the water level valve is firmly connected. If it is then you may need to get a new water level adjuster switch.

Washer fills, but overflows, will not go into wash cycle on any water level or washer setting, however on final spin cycle will spin water normally!n HELP!!


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Maytag Top loading Washer, fills but won't stop filling and then overflows and will not start the cycle


there is a small tubing about 12 inches or so that connect from the water level dail to the tub of the washer. sometimes the clamp on there gets loose and that interfers with the communication. try changing the tubing and or just tighting the clamps. you will need to lift the top of the washer off to get to it.

hope this helps

Maytag washer overflowing


Remove the tube from the water level switch. Blow it out so the sediment will stop blocking the tube. Re-attach it and pump out the water. Retry.

Washer won't stop filling with water


In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!
