My year old maytag centennial washer has recently been having problems.Regardless of the selected cycle,when I pull out the start knob to begin,washer starts agitating immediately,even before water fills.In addition,even though drum spins during spin cycle-(I have checked),clothes are sopping wet because at theVERY END of the spin cycle,washer begins to add water.

After scouring the net I found a similar problem where the fix was-"reseating the timer connector in the timer".I have the control panel tilted back and can't figure out how to do this as this may be a first step
.
Any thoughts?Other possible causes?

Thanks so much

Oh sublime master,I understand that the Auto Load Sensing Switch or"dection"fills this washer with miniscule amounts of h2o and agitates for 10 secs before proudly reassessing the situation and making a ruling on releasing more water,depending on his mood,but as of late he has decided to become agitated the INSTANT the timer knob is pulled out to begin.Are you tacitly suggesting that the auto 'dection' switch is the cause of the 2 previously stated problems and needs to be replaced?
I kneel and await your reply

RegUS_PatOff,
part number W10248240 was incorrect. The part I needed was W10292584 (substitute for W10177795)

My fault as the model number of my washer has a"0" at the end.

A "1" would have needed the part you indicated.

Just a heads up for future posters who neglect to follow the Clearly stated guidlines here: http://applianceguru.com/forum2/8.html

The auto-load detector has convinced your machine that its already got water in it...which is why it goes straight into a-git-tatin' instead of fillin'.

I seem to remember SOMEONE telling us that computers were gonna make our lives soooo much easier!
