Customer Question

maytag model mah8700aww code is "OE" flashing and hot water not stopping

OE just means that it's detecting too much water in the tub. If you turn the power off to the machine will the water stop coming in? Or do you need to turn it off at your house?

ok well your problem is going to be your electronic water valve on the back of your machine. This is the part that the hoses connect to on the back of the machine. The machine wants to shut off power that's why it's giving you the error code but for some reason no matter what it's trying the water is still coming in. This means your valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Here is the valve for the hot water.
