Customer Question

My 10 year old Maytag clothes washer keeps filling up with water in the detergent dispenser. What could be wrong?
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: It's been happening for a number of months. The dispenser is sometimes almost full of water at end of the cycle.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I don't know what is entailed in a possible fix. Not sure I can take it apart to find the problem and fix it.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: If it's somewhere inside the washer, I don't think I can fix it.
