How do I replace the water level switch in my washing machine

I have a 16 year old front loading White Westinghouse washer. Sometimes the water fills way too high, even though the water level is set for a small load. I assume I need a new switch.

You either need a new pressure switch or the pipe leading up to it via the air bell is blocked with a soapy jelly.

You can remove the back and then take off the plastic or rubber pipe leading down from pressure switch (It looks like a small flying saucer with several leads onto its plastic side and a small inlet pipe where the plastic pipe fits onto.

The other end will fit on top of a small chamber attached to the near the bottom of the main drum , this may be made of a translucent plastic which should allow you to see if there is any blockages.

If not it is a case of removing it making sure it is clean and if need be glueing it back into place with a good silicone sealer or instant gasket.

If that is clean and the machine still gets the levels wrong you need a new part

set the washer to fill. open the lid and depress the lid switch. might be in the rear of the cover or on the side. watch to see where the water level comes to. once the tub is filled, the water height switch operates the timer motor for the different cycles.

Washer fills with water , then shuts off , doesn't move to another cycle


Since you know about the lid and check switches, they are located under the splash (control)panel. unplug the machine and remove the screws holding the panel on. Using a meter check the switches for continuity and replace if they've gone bad.
