I am having the same problem. I have replaced a few parts, including a sensor and a brake. When my washer fills and starts agitating it overflows over the white lip and into the wall and onto the floor. My repair man can't seem to find the problem. It doesnt do this EVERY time, which makes it hard to diagnose.

I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.
It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.
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.
