Maytag Atlantis Overfills On Every Fifth or So Load
« on: February 04, 2011, 06:04:36 AM »
Atlantis Washer overfills just keeps filling without stopping but only does is it once out of every four or five.  Is this the pressure switch and tube?  If not could it be board related? Help, this machine is in great shape and I want to save it.

Model MAV6451AWW

Most likely a water valve failure. The internal spring and diaphragm will fail, sometimes intermittently.

Well after opening it up and looking...the fingertip faucet does not work.  And if you set it to lowest water lever setting after it fills, it drips cold water.  It does sound like the valve assembly.  However would that cause the fingertip faucet not to work as well?

"Fingertip faucet" is a fancy-schmancy term* for "Power to Cold Valve"...

If the tub is already full, the pressure switch may not allow  you to  draw more water. The drip means a bad valve anyhow.



*much like Heavy Duty.

Update
After several loads, on Regular cycle it sits on Rinse and fills and does not stop even when you push the knob in to turn it off.  On Delicate it does just fine and on quick wash just fine.  Timer?  And again the fingertip faucet does not work on any cycle when on mini or any level setting.

When it does this take your meter and see if power is still going to the valve when the power is turned off.

Just wanted to update after two weeks of testing, it was the water valve, I replaced it and so far so good.  Thanks to all.
