Check the drain hose behind your washer. If if is too low you will get a siphon and the water will run in and not fill up the tub. The drain hose is supposed to have an anti-siphon valve / kit on it if installed correctly but not always. Lift the drain hose until the end elbow is nearly even with the bottom of the top panel lip.

Any local appliance part center will have this Siphon Break Kit:
http://outlet.whirlpool.com/-[285834]-300125/285834/

There is a rubber diaphragm valve in the top of the "T" that opens to introduce air into the drain hose to prevent a Siphon. Installation is simple. Lift your drain hose up vertially, Make a cut 4 inches from the bottom of the top panel. Install the T with the rubber end UP and connect the elbow you cut off to the T oulet and drain.

    I forgot to mention that if you already have one of these Anti-Sipon Valve installed to clean the top of the valve where the rubber piece is and gently move it up and down so that the holes in the top of the valve are free of debris. Sometimes they cake up with soap. Also if you install one of these valve there should be a 2 - 3 inch piece of drain hose on the top of the valve so it does not splash water on the floor as the machine drains and the rubber diaphragm closes.

Cold water won't stop before rinse cycle


if it fails to stop running only at the rinse part of the cycle it is probably in the timer as the solenoid valve has to cut the water off when the washer fills for the wash cycle too. fills for wash cycle and cuts off water, washes and drains, refills for rinse cycle and water just keeps running? does this every time you run it? that's in the timer. bad solenoid (water inlet valve) would keep running even on wash fill up. hope this helps.

I have a LAT9306AAE washer that wont stop filling with water and overflows with water


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in and the water won't stop when you unplug the washer then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.
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 washer stopped working at the rinse cycle


do you have the machine set for cold water rinse? if so, the solenoid that allows the cold water to come into the machine may be malfunctioning. try to see if it will fill in the rinse cycle with hot water? if so, you need to change the water inlet valve.
