I've been told I need to replace my pressure switch. Before I do, I would like to make sure the hose is not clogged. Could you tell me how I would make sure its not? Thank you!
Answer Hello Mike,
Access the pressure switch and remove the hose from the switch itself. Blow into it back toward the tub. If it is clogged, you will feel the pressure build before it lets go all of a sudden. If it isn't clogged, you will be able to blow freely through it and hear the air coming out in the tub.
i recently changed the pressure switch on a frigidaire washer. Im' just curious. There are two adjusting screws on the back of the pressure switch. One controls the sensitivity of the switch. In other words it controls the water level. What does the other adjusting screw control?
Answer Hello Steve,
Both of the screws adjust sensitivity. One for making contact and the other for breaking contact. Neither screw should ever be turned as they are computer calibrated from the manufacturer. If you should ever turn either of them, the paint applied at the factory is broken and this relieves the manufacturer from liability in case of flood damage from the unit.
