For Whirlpool Water Level Pressure Switch Hose (Part Number: AP3098609)

Hello. My roommate and I recently acquired this washer from a friend who was moving. It worked fine until the fifth load when the water would not stop filling and flooded the apartment. After some research, I determined that the problem was most likely the pressure switch. I ordered the part from your website and replaced the switch. I ran an empty load and everything worked great. On the next load, however, my roommate experienced a second flood when the long hose from the tub to the hole that goes to the secondary pressure switch hose became disconnected. We tried the cheap fix and ductaped the hose back on only to have the apartment flood even worse. Can this problem be fixed with a new hose (the long one from the tub to the hole to the pressure switch?) Or, should we try a hose clamp? Is it possible that the hose became disconnected from some sort of clip on the side of the tub? Thanks!

ANSWER Hello Jess. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the pressure switch hose 353244 is bad and will need to be replaced. Also make sure the air dome assembly is good on the side of the outer tub where it hooks up. Hope this helps.
