Not sure what switch you are talking about.
Problems with water pressure are quite often caused by calcium and lime buildup inside of the faucet/machine. CLR can help. If it's a faucet, try removing the end of the spout and replacing the small metal screen at the end of it.
If you're talking about a washing machine, try removing the hose and seeing if there is a blockage. I'm not sure how to answer this question, as you haven't mentioned what you are actually having problems with.

Our whirlpool Duet fills with water when not in use.It gets do full we have to run a cycle before we can open the door. It also seems to be an intermitent problem. Thanks for any advice


This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve leaking by or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the water inlet valve can clog with sediment, rust, or calcified deposits over time and cause the valve not to close properly. This can cause leak by when not in use.

The pressure switch has a small air hose attached that, if it has any holes in it, will cause the pressure switch to malfunction. This can also result in a washer that fills when not in use, but will also cause the washer to overfill in most cases.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I have included parts resources and procedures on how to replace each part in the link. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

GLET1041AS1 WASHER INTERMITENTLY OVERFILLS AND FLOODS THE FLOOR. CHANGED BOTH INLET VALVES. NO HELP. WHAT CAN PROBLEM BE?


if it is an intermitent problem you more then likely have a vac hose that is stretched out. inside the control panel there is a rubber hose that connects your water level pressure switch to the bell housing on the side of the washer tub. if you pull the hose off the switch and cut the hose back 1/4 to 1/2 inch and reconnect it this should saolve your problem. Make sure your hose is long enough to easily reach the switch once it's been cut. on some washers there is just enough hose to reach and if you cut it, it won't be long enough or can pull off while the machine is washing

The hot water will not come on intermitently. I


if your on a private well, it sounds as though your loosing enough water pressure to shut the heater off,.(which is right before the water pump comes on),....tankless heaters turn on by sensing water flow, and of course off when flo stops,......water pressure tanks often need to be re-charged with air for pressure to stay even,....does your water pressure fluctuate?

My Karcher high pressure sprayer is delivering intermitant pressure.Every 15 seconds or so it developes high pressure for only about two seconds. Why is it not delivering a constant high pressure stream?


Check that the water supply is constant , it sounds like the pump might be pushing out more water than can be delivered , or it could be a dirty inlet filter
