Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
How do I determine if the overfill problem is caused by the water level valve or the water level switch?
If the switch is the problem, where is it located and how do I replace it?
An overfill caused by a failed valve will occur even if the machine is unplugged. Trace amounts of debris from your plumbing etc or even a deterioration of valve parts themselves can cause it to pass water while off. This can be as slow as a drip but given time it will overflow. Water level switches are by necessity highly reliable parts and when they do fail they usually "fail safe" in other words not allow any current to the water valve. Overfills that are not due to a bad water inlet valve are usually traceable to a pinched, plugged or disconnected air hose. The location of the switch varies. Sometimes it's right behind the water level knob. On others like front loaders it's inside the machine, usually above the tub and at the end of a length of clear plastic tubing.
