For GE Pressure Switch (Part Number: AP2045898)

So here's the deal. I have pretty much run exclusively full loads in the washer. Lately the washer overflows onto the flow underneath. Initially I thought it was likely the water inlet valve. But my wife tells me that if she dials back the load size to ~3/4 of a full load everything is fine. With that info, I was advised by who ever I talked to on this site to replace the pressure switch. (part # AP2045898) so I did. But that didn't fix it. I tacked down the other end of the hose that goes into this switch. I connects to a rectangular protrusion on the wash tub. While the washer was filling I disconnected this hose and blew into it. Water shuts off. when I stop blowing into the tube, filling continues. This further suggests the pressure switch is fine, and there is some other culprit. Can anyone provide me with some clues? Thanks, Karl

ANSWER Hello Karl. Check and see if the unit is leaking during the spin cycle. If so, and the unit does not leak filling, you need to order and replace the flood gasket WH1X2729 in the unit. If it leaks during the fill cycle, you may have a bad pressure switch WH12X10069 and it needs to be replaced.
