It seemed to be the water level control so I purchased and installed a new one.
Condition persisted.
Finally figured out that it was the water control valve. If I throttled back on the shut off valve the water control valve operated fine as this reduced the pressure on that valve.
However, by this time the wife had enough so we bought a new machine.
Existing machine continued to operate okay with the shut off valve partially closed until replaced by the new one.
