For Whirlpool Switch, Pressure (Part Number: AP3182693)

Answer or Comment

I just replaced the Motor/Sump Assembly and I now have a leak that appears to be coming from the soil sensor pressure switch. Is it common for the "O" ring inside the switch assembly to fail causing this leak? I cleaned debris from inside the switch and around the "O" ring and checked the drain and water inlet connections.

Mike for Model Number 665.17264400

ANSWER Mike, Like any fluid carrying system, when disturbed a gasket or seal, can and may leak, due to disturbing the "set" in the seal. Replace the "O" ring seal/gasket, and you should be fine. Good Luck and Thanks
