Maytag Neptune TL washer overfilling

yes i would agree the water valve is defective as if unplugged it should close,but also sounds like a pressure sensor or pressure hose problem that is also defective too due to the fact that it should at least start the wash cycle even though the water doesn't stop filling,so also it could be the central control unit,pressure switch or pressure hose

Washer is overflowing

The water input on washers is controlled by the timer which actuates the solenoid valves for both hot and cold water, telling them when to fill and when to close. I would run the machine thru a fill cycle with the washer back off, and with a voltmeter, observe if the voltage ever cuts off as the timer runs. I Another variable is the water level control. So also determine if that is working since if it failed to open the 'fill' circuit at the proper volume, you might have this overflow problem.

I have an old maytag model #LA712 top loader. Recently it has started overflowing not stopping when it's filling. This does not happen everytime and it does not leak any other times but when it does what a...

Usually this is caused by the water inlet valve sticking in the open position. If you can catch the washer while it's overflowing, unplug the washer. If the water stops, then the problem is most likely a pressure switch or pressure hose. If the water does not stop, it is most likely the water inlet valve.

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"

sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

Older Maytag fills with water, but doesn't run.

I have a 20 year old A512 & replaced only a very few items on it (fill valves, belts & air gap).

I would troubleshoot it & repair myself....can you use a voltmeter & are you comfortable exposing the timer / wiring.

My guess is motor (or timer, but less likely since its dead in all cycles). but you've got to get a solid diagnosis so you can order parts.

I suggest oyu find a guy on Craigslsit to repair..
cheers
Bob

Water won't shut off

Experienced a similar matter w/ ours that resulted in $3000 worth of floor damage in our house. The solution was an $85 service call for a tech to come out and reconnect a tube that detects when the machine has filled to the proper hight. Without this mechanism in place the washer thought it needed to continue filling (in our case it fille for 2 hours while we were gone). Sorry, never learned the proper name of this water pressure sensor.

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!!
