Maytag Washer Model A25CS keeps over filling with water

45 posts in this topic

The correct Model number is A25CS Serial 124799

I tested the pressure switch, I put the leads on the one end of the 3 terminals the yellow and gray, hooked a seperate hose to the pressure switch and blew and the meter read zero, meaning the switch is good, also i heard the diagram work.

I took the entire hose from the side of the tub and made sure no water and anything was blocking it , it was good and reconnected it. Not sure what else I can do, I did turn it on , hooked a seperate hose to water level switch the machine stopped filling but never started to agitate. any ideas?

You might have a bad timer. I couldn't get your model number to come up in the parts look ups. Is this a coin op machine?

yes its a coin op. What would the timer have to do with the machine overfilling with water??

Regus Is it possible that the pressure switch is blocked or faulty? I don't know a lot about the coin op or commercial machines, so I was wondering.

I guess I should read better...

I tested the switch and it read 0. When I hooked a seperate hose to the pressure switch it stopped the flow of water but did not agitate.

I have to solve two problems, water over filling and machine not starting to agitate/

both point to a bad Pressure Switch... (if it's wired correctly)

Did this Washer work OK for you up till now ?

it was working fine before. What I can understand is when I hooked up a clear hose directly to the switch and blew the water stopped so doesnt that mean the switch is working?

... depends on how much pressure that is compared to what the actual water level pressure would be...

Also, when the Switch "toggles" it should then Agitate

ok, this time when I hooked up a seperate hose and blew through it the machine started to agitate. I can blow thru the hose and hear bubbles, I also took the hose off the tub and blew thru it , it seems fine. Not sure why enough air is not going thur hose to shut switch off??

also, Tub has to be empty when hose is re-attached

I did re attach with it empty. I also just top my pressure hose to blow thru tubing to clear out and bubble come out the tub just fine. Not sure why pressure switch is not triggering. It works when I blow thru it with another hose.

I also took the entire tubing thats attched to the tub, no obstructions I can feel the air blowing thru and no holes in it.

may be bad diaphragm inside pressure Switch

but the switch works when I blow into with a clear tube that I attach

You are most likely blowing more pressure in it than it produces on it's own when filled with water. Either that or you have a hole in the hose from the switch to the tub. I would guess hole in the hose.

I took the hose off entirely, blocked on end and blew on the other, i detected no leak at all in the house.

it's calibrated to different pressures (Water levels)

i guess I will buy a new pressure switch even thought ohms meter says its fine.

are you monitoring the pressure when you blow into it ?

Is the internal diaphragm damaged at all ?

Does the OHM meter show the Switch is "closed" when it's at the correct Water level ?

how would i monitor the pressure when I blow into it??

How would I be able to tell if the diaphram is damaged??

The ohm meter just shows continuity when I blow into it.

I ordered a new hose and will start with that, if not then I will buy a new pressure switch unless someone else has a better idea.

the entire tubing thats attched to the tub,

How about the dome on the tub in which the tube connects to - blockage ?
