Question about Maytag Centennial 3.2 cu. ft. SuperSize Plus Top Load Washer
We had the same problem with our Maytag Centenial Washer. I simply removed the Auto Fill Sensor, cleaned the contacts with Deoxit contact cleaner and problem solved. All was done in less than 20 minutes.

My Maytag washer had this same problem After about two years it suddenly started agitating as soon as water began to run into the tub. I changed out a few parts without success. Then I noticed a clear tube which was filled with water that I believe connects to the autoload sensing switch. I pulled the tube off, blew out the excess water then reconnected it. This fixed the problem and it worked like new again.Best of all no new parts needed and no cost to repair. I suspect the tube got air locked which prevented it from draining the water completely and then made the load sensor switch think the tub was full of water. This same problem happened a few more times over the next 6 years and this fix always resolved it. Not sure why no one else has mentioned this fix unless they just want to sell you parts that are not needed. I sure hope this fix helps you too.

It seems that this is a common problem with this machine. I bought a new water sensor from topapplainceparts.com. It fixed it right up. Was only $52. part # w10248240 switch sensor.

We had the same problem with our Centennial Washer with auto fill sensor. Called the Maytag repairman and it cost us $184 for him to replace the ATC module on the left top side of the control panel. It took him less than 2 minutes to switch out the module with a replacement. Module contains a small chip board to run the different settings. The part can be purchased on Amazon for $66 plus S&H.
