My water won't stop filling up, so I pulled the water level selector out, but how do I check to see if it works? I blew into the switch but air does not go through it.
ANSWER Hello Scott,
You are supposed to blow through the hose back towards the tub. This clears any lint and soap build-up that could clog the hose to the pressure switch. If you blew very hard, I would be very reluctant to trust it as too much pressure will damage the water level switch.
Now to troubleshoot your issue, reassemble the unit and start it filling with water. While it's filling, unplug the unit from the wall receptacle. If the water doesn't stop until you turn off the faucet, the water inlet valve is bad. If it turns the water off when you unplug it from the wall receptacle and the unit is full, you have a bad pressure switch.
