Question and Answers

Q:

Why did my Maytag washer flood the kitchen?

A:

On this model of Maytag washer you have 3 components that could fail & cause the washer to overfill. The pressure switch, pressure switch hose & the water valve. The outer tub could also fail in the airdome area but the problem will be continuous so I do not suspect the outer tub. On an intermittent problem like this I recommend someone replacing the water valve first & pressure switch next.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why does my Maytag washer overflow with water no matter what water level setting you select?

A:

You don't mention but if you turn the timer off or unplug the washer and water continues to fill then the water valve itself is most likely the problem.

If you turn the washer off and the water fill stops then the problem will most likely be with the water level switch, pressure hose or air dome.

To check the water level switch first remove the rear access panel off, after unplugging the washer, and access the water level switch and clear plastic hose.

This problem can be caused by a kink in the hose or even a small hole in the hose. With the washer empty remove the hose from the switch and blow through it towards the tub. You should be able to blow without to much effort. You might even hear bubbles from the sump of the washer as you blow.

If you can't blow or it seems difficult then the hose might be kinked or the air dome might be blocked.

If you can blow through it without much effort then reattach the hose to the switch and try another fill and see if the water shuts off.

If the hose is okay then the problem is most likely with the water level switch. The switch, or any parts, can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . YOu will need the model number and the serial number to get the correct switch.

I hope this information is helpful to you in resolving this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

Why is my Maytag washer not draining or spinning correctly?

A:

On this model of washer the water drains while the tub is spinning. If the basket is spinning too fast before the water is drained the unit will get in an air locked condition. This is when the water rises in the basket from centrifugal force & is unable to be pumped out because of air in the pump instead of water. When you stop the spinning action the water will prime the pump & allow it to start pumping out again. Please see the image provided for the new revised pump & insert that is now available. Other possibilities; brake sticking, belt too tight, kinked drain hose or failed pump.
