Washer ran all over the floor after filling up and
Well, there are two main possibilities: Inlet valves and pressure sensor system. to test the inlet valves, turn off the machine, do they stop? Dirt can keep them open.
If power off stops the water, I suspect the pressure system. There is a component outside at the bottom of the drum that measures the water volume, using pressure. This collector component sometimes gets clogged with detergent. If it is open, test the transducer at the other end of the plastic hose. The system is designed to stop the power to the inlet valves when the pressure builds.

My mav-35 will fill with water but when i turn it
This is most likely a problem with your drain line. Check to make sure it's not filling with water and that there is a gap around the line in the drain hole to prevent vacuum lock. Give the hose a good shake and see if that dislodges any stuck water.
You could also have something caught in the valve which is preventing it from opening and closing properly.

Washer gets out of balance
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France
I mostly answer front load problems but ' out of balance' is a common problem with both!
So- I don't know your particular machine but the initial cure is the same.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine, even when empty, has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine (sorry about my UK spelling!) and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.
If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal drum suspension is malfunctioning but I've not had any feedback of this nature.
