CustomerEDGAR from MIRAMAR FL

The water level was totaly undercontrol.

I removed the front panel, disconect the Level Pressure Switch and conect the new one, the only thing that took me most of the tima was calibrate the instrument.
whene you disconct the hose that goes in th side of the L P S. to replace it for the new one you have to be care full. FIrst install the new part, then before you conect the hose let the machine fill up with water up to the firt level ( small load), to do this,calculate the water amount, then blow the hose to leave the hose free off air to create, a vacume then install it on the original position.

CustomerScott from Old Bridge NJ

Washer overflowing

I removed the 4 screws from rear of top control panel, tilted it forward. Found the fill valve and water fill pressure switch right there. Removed a few screws and changed both items in less than 10 min. Parts cost about $75, probably saved me over $200 to have repair man in.

Washer overflowed, water would not stop filling

Replaced the water level pressure switch. Just a couple of screws to do this. Initially the washer did not appear to be fixed, but I disconnected and re-attached the electrical connectors and then it worked.
