If the water level switch goes bad, would the water level keep rising & keep the washer from beginning the wash cycle? My washer just fills up & does not stop, did not know if it is the water level switch or the timer? The washer will drain & spin but will not aggitate the clothes.
Answer Hi Tommy. If you can stop the water from flowing in the washer by turning off the timer. The pressure switch WH12X10065 will more likely be faulty. If you disconnect the washer from the power outlet and water continues to flow in you will have a bad water valve WH13X10025. Hope this helps!

When starting the washer it just starts to agitate without putting any water in. Could this be the water level switch?
Answer Joe, Yes It could be the WH12X10065 water level switch or the WH41X365 air tube. Here's a way to check, remove power to the washer access the controls inside the console, disconnect the air hose from the water level switch, wait a few seconds then start the washer. If the washer starts to fill, replace the water level switch and tube. If the washer agitates and doesn't fill replace the timer WH12X1022 one of the timer contacts is stuck closed.
