When I would set my washer to a specific setting, it would skip the water fill cycle and go directly to the agitate cycle. Would not get water at all, hot, cold, or warm. I removed the control panel with a torx (star) bit in which the screws were on top behind the panel. The pressure switch was on the left side of the panel. The switch actually twists out. There are no screws or other hardware holding it in place. Very convenient. All there was to the switch was 2 wires and a vaccuum hose line. Very simple repair. Washer works great.
Unplugged the appliance. Removed 4 star screws using a #2 star bit and screwdriver. I turned the old switch dial to its furthest counterclockwise setting which was my marker for installing the new one. Folded the dial cover over, accessed the pressure switch and removed the two wires making note of the position for each. Removed the pressure switch by inserting a flathead screwdriver in between the clip and metal frame. Installed the new one. Note: if your tub begins aggitation and you can hear the water level pressure switch engage chances are its still good and the dual water inlet valve is the issue. Since my appliance is over 5 years old I replaced both. Washer is functioning properly now.
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.Oops.
