The highest water level too high. It is about 2 inches above the top of the agitator. The water splashes out. There are two adjustment screws in the switch. Can anyone explain how to lower highest water level setting?
Answer Hello Robeert,
You need to remove the hose from the pressure switch and blow through it back to the tub to make sure it isn't clogged with lint or detergent residue. If it is clear, replace the pressure switch WH12X10378. The screws are calibrated at the factory. If the screws need adjustment, the switch is failing and will not be dependable. The possibly of overfilling into the floor will be greatly increased.
Hi! My washer wont stop filling as well, and as recommended in the Q & A I ran the test to find out if is the pressure switch or the valve. In my case is the switch and I want to buy it and replace it my self. My question is: Is replacing the switch something I should take to an expert or is something easy that I can do my self? Thanks!
Answer Hi. Depending on the model, remove the top or the back control panel. Remove the pressure switch hose and make sure it does not fall down into the chassis during the pressure switch part # WH12X10378 change. Unclasp the electrical connector. Unlatch the switch holder tab and turn the switch approx. 30 ° to remove it. Replace it and make sure the pressure switch holder tab is locked in place against the inner frame. After replacement fill the unit in a small wash. Advance the unit into a final spin and let it run itself out of time to "reset" the pressure switch. Thank You.
Put in new pressure switch. Water get's to high and goes out the overflow tube and goes all over the floor.
Answer Hello Lonzo. If the only time it leaks is during the spin cycle, you will need to order and replace the flood gasket WH1X2729 in the unit.
