installed water level pressure switch and hose easily but the symptoms were unchanged. Ordered and changed dual water inlet valve--also with no improvement. Checked belt and clutch operation and both were intact. Then I noticed that the reservoir on the outside of the drum on which the pressure hose attached seemed clogged. I used a wire to insert and open the clog. The washer now works like new. Recommendation: check for clogging in the semi-transparent reservoir before ordering a bunch of parts. Funny, this was never mentioned in the instruction videos.
