Does it agitate for the wash cycle?
When you get to the spin cycle, is the motor running and 3 pulleys underneath turning, and the tub is not turning?

If so, I had this issue with this model. The brake would not release, and I had to "persuade" it. Also, I had to set the plastic cam correctly on the bottom of the unit to that is would engage and release the brake at the proper points.

Did not need a bearing kit, just had adjust a few things that got knocked around by the movers. Only took me 6 frustrating hours. Hopefully take you less than 1. BEWARE the 200# force for the spring!

Cost $0. Mental anguish = still tabulating.

Bleach tends to eat thru the paint and cause the rust. What I do on a call for this is to take the bleach cup out, sand the area and paint the area with appliance paint. Here is a link to the paint I use in case you want to do it. The only way to keep this from occurring again is try not to let the bleach get on the painted areas. I know this is hard to do on a washer but you can try to poor some water around the area of the bleach cup. If you should get the paint else where, be sure it is enamel appliance paint.

Make sure the cold water hose is turned on. You should have two hoses running to your machine.

I would recommend calling your homeowners insurance and having them take care of the damage. As far as what is wrong with the washer? That needs to be diagnosed. I found this link: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/200684-why-does-my-maytag-washing-machine-overflow

see this causes:
It spins, but doesn't pump
drain line is clogged, remove some sock with pliers+test the pump for defective propeller, and replace DO NOT REPAIR
It doesn't spin or pump
frozen pump puller +and replace the pump
It pumps, but the water returns
if the drain hose reach more about 4 inches, cut of the excess
if the hose is lower, install air/gap siphon break assembly
see the diagram.
God bless you
