Default Washer overflows when set at large load
Model Number: LAT4916AAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi,

My Maytag (13 years) overflows when the water level is set above small. With the water level set above small, sometimes water flows over the basket and down the sides. When the level is set at Large of Super, the water will not stop flowing. If I press down on the agitator, the water stops.

I'm wondering if this is related to a defective water switch...

I've called a repair person (I'm in Brazil) and he thinks it's the water switch.

I read about a similar problem in this forum about a GE washer. The advice given was to verify the hose running from the water switch to basket bottom-- it might be clogged or with leaky...

Thanks for any help you might provide me with!

Victor

Hi Victor,

The advice:

sounds correct in your situation.

You have to open the control panel and remove the front panel to inspect the air hose (#2 on the diagram). Make sure there is no water in the washer. Disconnect the hose from the water level switch (#13 on the diagram) and blow some air through it to make sure it goes through free.

Reconnect the air hose and run the washer. If the problem exists, replace the water level switch. Unfortunately Appliance Parts Pros does not ship parts outside US but may be you have someone in US who can order it for you and reship it to you.

Smile Water switch test

Gene,

I blew into the water switch hose and it was clear all the way to the tub. Turned on the washer (after assembling everything..) and it stopped filling at super setting, but just barely overflowed. My guess is that the switch is defective and I ordred a new one. Thank you for your advice! Victor

You are welcome Victor.

Make sure there is no water in the washer prior to replace the switch. Keep us posted.
