I have a friend that has a Maytag stackable washer. A new Timer and a
new Fill valve were purchased and I installed them. It still will not
fill with water in ANY cycle. No water at all. The washer will spin and
drain and that is it. Someone please help, I have worked on these
several times over the years and I am stumped on this one. Thank you.
There is something called overfill sensor. Maybe it's stuck?
Bring out a meter and looking at the schematics, trouble-shoot.
I wonder why your friend got new timer and valve? Shot gun method
can waste time and money.
Thanks for the reply, I looked at the fuse in the front of the machine
and that was good as well. I also took the hose of the water level
diaphram unit and lighty blew into it and the washer took off and
started to function (spin & drain) so that appears to be good. The
friend just bought the parts I guess and had them put in and when that
didn't work I got called. I looked over the entire inside and didn't
find any broken or grounded wires. I also put a meter on the fill valve
leads and was only able to get like 5v on one side and 18v or so on the
otherside and that is with a new timer and fill valve with coils.

Maytag (now owned by Whirlpool) has a number of designs that you might
call stackable. A laundry system has a top load washer on the bottom,
dryer on top, and the it can't be "unstacked." The Neptune Superstack
is a front load washer on bottom, dryer on top, and while they may come
into your house unstacked, they can't be operated unstacked. Finally,
some Maytag front load washers can have a dryer put on top, but they
can be operated side by side as well.
So, which do you have?
Hello, the washer is top loading with the dryer above it. It appears to
be several years old. I was able to undo the side floor brackets and
slide the washer forward from the rackmount. The washer timer mounts in
the bottom face of the dryer.
Hello, the washer is a top load and the dryer is above it. I was able
to undo the floor side brackets and slide the washer forward from the
rackmount to do some work on it. I am hoping this is something simple
and a quick fix due to it now having a new timer and fillvalve.
Go to this link.....this may help.....good advise here.
Also, if this is a solenoid type valve......when solenoid should be
open(energized) you should be able to put a small screwdriver over the
top of it, on the metal post, and should feel some magnetism present.
If not there, then either the voltage or/return is not present, or the
solenoid is defective.
Have you tried both a only cold wash cycle and only a hot wash cycle,
I'm thinking I need to locate the Overfill Switch? Maybe that is
tripped if it has one. If it has one does anyone know off hand where it
may be located? I know where the water level switch is but is there a
seperate Over fill Switch as well?
