If your Maytag washer has a fuse along with the lid switch and a small cherry switch, you can get  it as a complete assembly, 2 switches and fuse on the plate or just the larger switch. We recommend replacing the entire assembly

Note: We Recommend checking and cleaning the screens in the ends of the hoses.

We DO NOT recommend cleaning the ones inside of the water inlet valve as they can be damaged, not put back in properly, or while messing with the screens you may disrupt mineral build up and cause it to get down inside of the water inlet valve and cause it to stick in the open position. For no more than these valves cost just replace the thing!

  • Check the tub bearing / Seal - Note: Special - Tub nut removal wrench may be required to remove nut and seal.

If not replaced as a set you may have further problems.
My Washer won't stop filling with water
Turn the washer on and let it start to fill. If you can reach over and unplug the washer from the wall and it will stop filling , check the pressure switch and the air dome.

If unplugging it has no effect and it still continues to fill, and the only way to shut it off is to turn off the faucets, then replace the water inlet valve.
