My water level selector switch is getting difficult to turn. Can you add a lubricant to the switch or is it going bad and going to need replaced?
Answer Hello Sheila! You will have to replace the water level switch with part number W10337781. Unfortunately you cannot just add a lubricant to the shaft, thanks!
CANT SEEM TO GET THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH OFF... WATCHED A VIDEO THAT SAYS I HAVE A LITTLE HINDGE CANT FIND...HELP
There is no hinge on the water valve. This water valve would just twist off. There may be a tab that you have to lift up on but once it is lifted if you just turn counterclockwise it should come off. Make sure that the knob is off.
Switch w-i (12 on your diagram). I am loockong only fol the plastic part that works the nob. Thanks.
Answer Joseph, the shaft on the water level switch is not available separate from the switch itself, part number W10337781. Sorry about that!
Our washing machine fills completely full no matter what water level setting you select. The water level sensor seems to work properly mechanically. What else could be causing the problem?
Answer Jeff, The water level switch W10337781 , could still be at fault, But before you replace it, disconnect the air tube from the switch and blow in the end of the tube, this may clear any debris or deposits that may have formed in the tube and would cause the washer to overfill.
Why does a new hose come with switch? Can't we use the existing hose?
Answer Hello Suzy,
The manufacturer had some issues with the old hoses. It is highly recommended to use the new hose. The manufacturer is not going to include a part that cost them money to produce and ship if it is not a necessary part of the repair.
