This part fixes the following symptoms:
I removed the screws holding the control board in place. Removed the knob on the front of the panel and then disconected the wires to the control. Then I took the old control off the board and inserted the new control. I attached the wire connectors to the new control and put the control panel back in place and fastened it with the screws. Last task was to replace the knob. The new control worked wonderfully with the first load of laundry. Piece of cake. Done in 5 minutes or less.

Before I start, I should clarify that before I replaced the water level pressure switch I replaced the water inlet valve (aka solenoid). Past experience had taught me that the solenoid was a likely cause, I never thought about the water level swtich. Replacing the solenoid was 75% of the time involved, only because I had to disconnect hoses and figure out how to get to the solenoid. When that didn't solve the problem the likely culprit was the water level swtich so I didn't even test it I just changed it. I'm not sorry I replaced both parts. The gunk that had blocked the filters to the solenoid would have caused problems soon anyway. Replacing the water level switch took 15 minutes or less because it was so easy to access. Washer loads fine now!
There was a hole in the tube that connects to the water level pressure switch...so we could have just bought a new tube but we replaced the whole thing anyways. This job was easy up until we had to take the hose out and we had to remove the back cover. But works great now =-)
Tried replacing the water valve first (85% - this is the problem... from the website)... It did not fix the problem. Ordered the water level switch (10% - this is the problem... from the website).. It works like new. The website had lots of information, videos, specs, etc. It really helped a lot...!! Feels good to fix a washer that did not work... Thanks partselct.com...!!! -Eddie Campbell, Charlotte, NC
The replacement switch arrived exactly on the number of days I was advised when I ordered it. After opening the lid of the washer, the old water level switch was turned 1/4 turn, and it pulled right out (after unplugging the electical wires from the switch). I replaced the rubber water tube ann plugged it into the new water level switch. Then installe the switch, and closed up the washer. Not hard at all.
Was not aware that the pointer on the dial could get way off the slot it was supposedly pointing to. It has taken numerous run throughs of the wash cycle to get it close. It would point to rinse but actually it was on OFF or on wash when it was really on spin. I am not certain how this could be remedied since this timer was new and set on who knows what when it was installed.
