Question about Maytag LAT3600A Top Load Washer

MY LAT8824AAE machine just fills with water

My LAT8824AAE Maytag machine just fills with water. The timer goes through the cycles but no aggitation or rinsing. It will however work on the shortest of the delicate cycles. I can't find a diagram or information on this. We purchased the home and the previous homeowners left no information on anything. We are just contemplating buying a new one since we can't find a diagram and have no experience in fixing washers. Can you help?

    I have checked the lid switch and the water level (pressure) switch;
    both are in working order. I have "checked" the contacts in the timer
    the best I could and they all seem to have good contacts; however,
    since I could not open this unit to see if the inside contacts are
    good. Since it is a mechanical contact and the timer motor itself
    works, I wonder if I should change the entire timer (unit) at a cost of
    $120.00+.

    Thanks.

If the tmer works on any of the cycles but not on all of them, you might need to purchase a new timer.

Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.

without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

May be a bad water level switch.
Open the control panel, with a full tub of water bump the water level switch with your hand. If it starts to agitate, replace the water level switch.

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!!

Keeps filling up even when full for over 4 hours (never changed cycles)

The timer sends a signal to the water level control valve. This valve serves two primary purposes. 1. Activate the water valve to fill the machine. 2. Shut the water flow down and allow the machine to operate. Try running the machine again. If the water continues to enter the machine after it begins aggitating then shut the water off at the spigot. Now watch and see if the timer moves or not.

If the timer does not move at all then I would replace the timer. If it DOES move then another problem exists and will need to be addressed.

Maytag LAT9235AAE fills with water....

Pt, as long as you verified the lid switch is good, do this simple test. Get a piece of hose the same size as the one going to the pressure switch, connect it and blow into it. See if it starts agitating. If it does, there's your problem..Catriver post back.
