Most likely it's the lid switch, part number 22003804.
Remove the back of the console to gain access.

SOURCE: Washer is over filling.

AV,

Yup! I know what's going on (the tip off was when you said, "The water does stop when I push the timer off"). See? the timer, as I'm sure you know, supplies or "directs" power to each component in the washer... kinda like a conductor does an orchestra. When you push the timer knob to "Off", you shut down the symphony thereby removing power from all of the components. Make sense?

When you set the water level and pull the knob, the level switch tells the timer that the tub is empty and request water. The timer complies and sends power to the water valve. When the water level is "satisfied", the level switch tells the timer to remove power from the valve and start the "agitation" cycle.

Here's what's happening, the level switch isn't talking to the timer. I think the part number is 22002705, but I'm not sure because I don't have the full model number. Call you local appliance retailer and provide them with the full model number to be sure, OK? Since you already have the machine apart, it'll be easy to replace...

Oh yeah, here's a picture of it... see if this one matches the one on you machine. This might confirm the part number.

And another thing, now that you've experienced a washer flood (ain't it fun?), you might want to consider getting yourself one of these. They're super easy to install and it'll provide that extra bit of insurance against this happening to you again.

Don't forget to rate this solution. And thanks for using FixYa!

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
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 have a maytag atlantis washer that will completely fill at the beginning of the cycle, stop, then make a very loud squeeling noise, stop, and now will not advance through any cycle...even manually. We...


Hello,

The not completly filling and squeeling makes me want to look at the screen on the water valve that the hoses attach to on the rear of the machine for blockage preventing water flow,to me the squeeling is the solonoids on the water valve calling for water yet no water coming in. IF you manually fill the washer using buckets of water/a hose what will happen? perhaps try that!!
Also if you have the "aquaflow flood stop" hoses the internal stopper in the hose is bad,replace hoses using standard hoses

Good luck,i hope this helps you to fix your washer,
Gene

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Water will not stop filling tub.


the problem is that your pressure switch is not working properly. if you take the screws out of the back of the head you will find the pressure switch. first unplug the washer then undo the hose from pressure switch. blow trew the hose, then blow into the pressure switch if you hear the pressure switch click then re assemble and try again put on small load and watch if fills almost to the top or over flows replace pressure switch
