Washer overflowing

Repair was easy enough by just unlocking the tab and twisting the switch out from under the control panel. For me though, this did not fix my overflowing issue. After more research I found the inlet valve needed to be cleaned out.
I respect that electrical parts are non-returnable as I am in the auto parts business.

Customerkeith from Bellaire TX

Washer would no longer fill to proper height--just low

removed top controls panel (not obvious),then released old switch by rotating 90 degrees (after disconnecting wires and pressure sensor tubing), then reinstalled new switch (new switch has only 3 positions, not 5 as old switch had) and reinstalled everything else.

A 'gotcha' is the plastic 'strap' on the back that anchors switch compartment to the back steel sheet. It is EASY to dislodge that plastic strap from the bakc panel and it drops down inside the panel--maybe to the floor, maybe not--requiring difficult retrieval. Suggest TAPING the plastic strap in place on the back steel sheet so it will not fall out.
