La maleta is feminine, so why not use toda to agree with it

Hola Kaz

In this sentence:

 

La maleta era muy pequeña y no pude poner todo en ella.

The suitcase was very small and I couldn't put everything in it.

Todo here is detached from the noun maleta; it's not modifying that noun. Here todo refers to "everything". There is a bullet point in the lesson by the end that talks about "todo" referring to "everything" (referring to an idea or a group of things seen as a unit). 

Saludos
