Water keeps running

My washer keeps running water and it won't fill up, it must not be holding the water in to get it to a level where the washer will start to agitate??

Missmelissa, sounds like you are siphoning. Lift the drain hose from the drain and see if it fills then. You need to have a air gap on the drain so you don't get the siphoning affect. Catriver..post back.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its

Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

I get error FE- book says unplug and call a tech. Is this something I can fix myself?

FE error means that the water is filling past it's set point. You may have a broken water valve that won't shut off when it's in the filling mode. You can check by running the washer and watching the water fill. If the water level fills above the bottom of the glass, you have a water valve that's not shutting off. Replace the water valve.

When the washer is ready to wash,the water keeps coming in to the washer,won't shut off

Open the control panel. Remove the plastic hose from the water level switch.
Blow through the hose to remove any blockage from the air bell at the tub. Reattach the hose and set the machine for a SPIN cycle and run the machine. Then re-fill with water.
Double check the hose for any kinks or pin holes.
If this does not correct the problem,the water level switch will need replacing.

Water wont stop filling on wash or rinse cycle , complete flood

take out the two screws that hold the top console down,flip the console up and on the left side you'll see the water level switch,make sure the clear hose is connected to it,if that's off the water will keep filling into the washer,if it is on take it off and blow gently into the pressure switch or the water level switch and listen for a clicking sound,if it doesn't click you could have a bad water level switch,next,unplug the washer,disconnect the lid switch harness and with a screw driver pop the two metal clips holding the back panel to the top of frame,pull the frame backwards to you and remove the frame off of washer,have someone blow into the clear line and check for any pin holes in the clear line or see if it popped off the bottom plastic piece that it goes to.if it looks ok change out the pressure switch but if there's a hole in the clear line that switch won't work it can't hold pressure and the water will just keep filling up the washer and won't stop like it's doing now,send the model number and i'll look up your part for you,or call your parts store and give them the model number and order the pressure switch or water level switch,it's the same thing,let me know what you find

Washer will fill but it does not stop

Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.


Maytag top loadind washer. Won't stop filling up.

Make sure your drain hose to the drain pipe is higher than the water in the tub if not it will keep running and going out the drain.
Also try taking the hose off the level switch and blow in it to be sure it's not stoped up. If is it won't let the level sw cut off. air should go through it. Good luck
When you unpluged the power and it ddn't keep runing the water valve should be ok.

Washer will not fill up!

The water is siphoning out as it fills. Your drain hose is too low or has a air block. Remove the drain hose from the drain. Set the washer to fill. Hold the drain hose up higher than the washer. If it fills correctly and starts agitating,correct the drain hose problem.

Water will not stop filling washer

cut power to washer ..does it stop filling? suspect water level control or small hose to it is off ..keeps running in? shut off water to washer and change fill valve where hoses attach..just won't fill to top and start? raise level of drain hose up and be sure it is not too tight in drain pipe to prevent siphoning
