Maytag Bravo washer problem: I choose to do a normal load,

Customer Question

Maytag Bravo washer problem: I choose to do a normal load, hit starts, goes into sensing and does it's spin period during sensing, after about 3 minutes it begins to fill with water and stays in sensing mode while spinning every 10 seconds as if still sensing. Water continues to fill until the washer is all the way full with water regardless of what load size I choose it fills all the way up. Once full the washer clicks, stops sensing(and doing the sensing spins), the cycle time goes from about 44 to 10, and then begins to drain. Once draining is complete the washer clicks and acts as if it's done but the light above "wash" is illuminated. What could the problem be? I've already recalibrated the washer.

Sir, I just viewed your response after fixing the washer. The "certified" technician who replaced the control board did not plug the water level sensor hose into the back of the new board, causing the washer to not know how much water to fill. Ran it through a whole cycle after that little hose got connected and it's working flawlessly...

I was not aware anyone worked on it nor what they did glad you got it resolved.

I listed in my description to you that a technician had replaced the control board when it was still under warranty and that we have already had the actuator and capciator replaced.
