Washer was over flowing
Removed the knob from water level switch. Removed 4 screws holding the control panel cover on and leaned it out. Made sure the washer was unplugged and removed the three wires and removed the water level hose and the switch. Installed the new switch and hose plugged the wires back in and put things back together. Washer works fine now.

Washer was not filling up larger than medium
Unplugged washer. Removed four screws on the top panel, unplugged and removed old water level pressure switch (which was visually broken), replaced with new part, put the top panel back on, re-connected power, and tested to make sure that the washer would now fill to Extra-Large. Worked!

washer was overflowing-- not registering that the tub was full
I replaced both the tube and the pressure switch and still no luck. turns out that i didn't need either part. the little box that the tube hooks on to at the bottom left of the tub had a clog in it. we disconnected the tube from the switch and just blew through it. the clog broke loose and my washer works again!! decided that i was leaving the new parts on the machine. one less thing to worry about in the future.... ????

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.

Water would not shut off when filling
I removed four hex screws from the top of the washer. I found the water level pressure switch and removed the dial. I turned it to remove it from the holding bracket. I removed both wires one at a time and placed them in the new switch one at a time so I wouldn't get them mixed up. I put the new switch in place and put the top back on using the hex screws. The dial was replaced. When I tested the dial I found that the dial did not match up to the water settings. They didn't even come close. Although the numbers were close on the switches, they were different. I had to remove the new switch and put the old one back on until I can locate the correct switch for my washer.

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.

Where can i find the control circuit board diagram on the internet? A copy was inside the cabinet but was non readable. It has the number 175d2750g22 on the sheet it has also sht 533. On the back it has some repair directions but nothing showing the fill valve, or water fill control valve. Can you help?
For model number WHRE5260E1CC
PartSelect logo
Hi George, Thank you for your question. Your control board is underneath your Controls & Backsplash diagram. It is part 35. Your dual water inlet valve is also located in that diagram and is part number 805. It is on the back of your machine. We have an installation video on how that valve is installed: https://youtu.be/hjiKQ9Ye58Q . I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The water level knob has loosened and can’t be tightened. Should i replace it or is there a way to tighten it?
For model number WPRE6100G1WT
PartSelect logo
Hello Debbie, Thank you for the question. You may need to check the back of the knob where the shaft of the switch fits into. If it is damaged or stripped, you will need to replace the knob. If the shaft is loose or damaged, then the switch will need to be replaced. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

I replaced the pressure switch (WH12X10065) on my GE washer per your instructions in the video. When everything is reassembled, the knob no longer aligns with the graphics on the front. I can turn the knob to 4 positions, but none of the positions aligns with the text on the front panel of the washer (small, large, super). Is there a way to fix this? Also, the new switch seems to have 4 positions and my washer only has 3. Is that right?
For model number GE S3700E4WW

Hi Jen, Thank you for your question. Based on your model number, this should be the correct water level pressure switch for your washer. Here is a link to one of our YouTube videos that you may reference on how to install the water level pressure switch, https://www.youtube.com/watchv=t_3WfRff41E&t=1s. The washer in the video may appear different from yours, but it will give you a general idea on how to install the part. We hope this helps! Good luck with the repair!

Why would the hot (and maybe also the cold) water solenoid open & close 20-30 times during the fill cycle?
For model number GTWN4250D1WS
PartSelect logo
Hi Bruce, Thank you for the question. It sounds like it could be a defective water valve.I suggest trying to fill the appliance with just cold water to see if it does the same thing. If it works normal the Pressure switch will be fine. Hope this helps!

Washes ok starts to sinp & kicks out pump still runs runs ok on small load most time just wont sin
For model number wjsr2070b2ww
PartSelect logo
Hello John, thank you for your inquiry. We would suggest inspecting the belt to determine if this part is worn and not operating correctly. If your belt appears to be in good condition, you may want to check the agitator coupling kit, as this may be causing this symptom to arise. We hope this helps.

It spins when nothing is in it but doesnt spin when a load is in it
For model number WBSR3140D5WW
PartSelect logo
Hi Lisa, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the V-Style Drive Belt first,make sure it is not wore out and not allowing it to grip the pulley and spin the drum in the spin cycle.If the belt is not lose or wore out. If it is not spinning or agitating with a load of laundry you may need to replace the Transmission and Brake Assembly.Hope this helps!

I just replaced the water level pressure switch (id # ps269790 part # wh12x10065) that i ordered from you and the hot water still will not turn off when full. What do i do next ?
For model number S2100G2WW
PartSelect logo
Hello Theresa, Thank you for the question. The next part would be the Water Valve, Part Number: PS1482390. The hot water port may not be closing and allowing water to flow through into the drum. Hope this helps!

During spin cycle washer adds small amount of water and spins. Keeps repeating without completely filling and then spinning water out.
For model number ge gtwn4250m1ws
PartSelect logo
Hello Charles, thank you for contacting us. The issue is probably related to the water inlet valve, part number PS2354072, and/or the pressure switch, part number PS2354068. The valve supplies water to the washer and the switch senses and controls the water level in the washer. Please reach out to customer service if you need help placing an order. Glad to be of help!
