The water pressure level switch is a pressure activated switch that is used to determine the correct water level in the tub. This part is normally located behind the control panel and will have a hose or air dome tube that connects it to the tub. On washers that use an electronic control, this switch may be located at the sump area below the tub. As the water fills in the tub it will compress the air in the tube and push against a diaphragm inside the switch. The switch will control the water inlet valve and turn the valve off at the correct water level. If the tube has a leak, not enough pressure may be created to activate the switch and the washer may overfill. If the switch is defective it may also cause the machine to overfill. To determine if the switch is bad, you should first eliminate the air dome hose as a problem. Look for signs of cracks or worn areas on the hose. Remove the hose and submerge in water. Seal one end and blow air into the other end and look for bubbles. Check for an obstruction in the hose as well. If the air dome hose appears to be ok, then the water level switch may be defective.

You can test it with a meter and with a manual test? ( first locate it in the panel, it has a plastic clear tube hose going into it, remove that tube from its connection, now put another small tube or hose into the slot where it was and have the machine set to wash cycle with water in it. Blow into the other end of the tube.
If the machine starts to wash. the pressure switch is more than likely good
( No wash- then THE DIAPHRAGM IS BAD AND SWITCH HAS TO BE REPLACED).

The other item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

Buba, check the lid switch for proper operation, on a lot of models if the lid switch is bad, no spin, no drain. You said you had the pump checked out. Im assuming that it was removed to check for a sock or other garment lodged in the pump. Other things you can check would be the hose from the pump to the tub, make sure it's clear and the drain hose where it exits the washer. Hope this solves the issue..

SOURCE: frigidaire FWS1339AC1 won't spin or

if the lidswitch is not showing proper volt then its faulty and it needsreplacement.
If it doesn'tpump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed asfollows:
If the motoris running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pumpbelt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotatethe pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen orstiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replaceit--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motorisn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machinecan't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washingmachine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open thetop or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective,you need to replace it.
It pumps, but doesn't spin
If yourwasher pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
The lidswitch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switchis inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you haveto raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch.If it's defective, you need to replace it.
The motorcoupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small,relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mountedto the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.
A belt may bebroken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken orbadly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer.(Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not foundin automotive belts.)The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may usea clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it mayprevent the unit from spinning well or at all.
If the clutchis worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire aqualified appliance repair technician.The drive motor may be defective. Manywasher brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in onedirection, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor toburn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If thishappens, you need to replace the entire motor.
Thetransmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool®have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomeseven partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is acomplex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire aqualified appliance repair technician to repair it.The spin bearing or basketdrive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spinfreely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loudsound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.
It spins only with the lid closed
For safety,washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lidswitch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.
if not familiar with doing this then you canget it checked by local appliance repair technician familiar with this brandand model.
Youcan get required parts from www.repairclinic.com
Thiswill help. Thanks please keep updated.please do ratethe solution positively .thank you for using fixya

# Test procedures to follow

* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Set the timer dial on regular and pull the knob to turn the timer push-pull switch on
* Set the temperature switch to the cold/cold setting
* Open the controls panel to gain access to the water mixing valve solenoids
* Touch the 2 terminals on the cold water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Make sure that your body don't touch the washer cabinet, this eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock.
* Have someone plug the washer cord for you while you check the voltage
* The reading should be 120 volts
* Disconnect the washer from the wall outlet
* Touch the 2 terminals on the hot water solenoid with your volt meter test proves. Remember, to keep your body from touching the washer cabinet to eliminate the chance of getting an electrical shock

#
2
Have your helper plug in the washer cord again so you could check the voltage at the hot water solenoid

The reading should be 120 volts. If you get 120 volts, this tells you that the wall outlet, the timer, the water temperature switch cold and hot water settings are working ok.
3
If the washer is not filling, the problem should be on the water valve, the screen filters or the water supply
4
If one of the solenoids is bad you will need to replace the complete water mixing valve assembly YOU SHOULD ALSO GET AN OHMS READING OR SHOW CONTINUITY WHEN TESTED UNPLUGGED ON BOTH SELINOIDS HOT AND COLD

To check the water valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.
If you still don't have good water pressure, the problem is in your house plumbing and you need to call a plumber. If you had good water pressure the first time you performed the test, the water valve is bad and needs replacing.

Washer overflows


Washer fills with water and overflows:

The water pressure level switch is a pressure activated switch that is used to determine the correct water level in the tub. This part is normally located behind the control panel and will have a hose or air dome tube that connects it to the tub. On washers that use an electronic control, this switch may be located at the sump area below the tub. As the water fills in the tub it will compress the air in the tube and push against a diaphragm inside the switch. The switch will control the water inlet valve and turn the valve off at the correct water level. If the tube has a leak, not enough pressure may be created to activate the switch and the washer may overfill. If the switch is defective it may also cause the machine to overfill. To determine if the switch is bad, you should first eliminate the air dome hose as a problem. Look for signs of cracks or worn areas on the hose. Remove the hose and submerge in water. Seal one end and blow air into the other end and look for bubbles. Check for an obstruction in the hose as well. If the air dome hose appears to be ok, then the water level switch may be defective.

You can test it with a meter and with a manual test? ( first locate it in the panel, it has a plastic clear tube hose going into it, remove that tube from its connection, now put another small tube or hose into the slot where it was and have the machine set to wash cycle with water in it. Blow into the other end of the tube.
If the machine starts to wash. the pressure switch is more than likely good
( No wash- then THE DIAPHRAGM IS BAD AND SWITCH HAS TO BE REPLACED).

The other item to check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board.

Frigdaire heavy duty washer 13 cycles 2 speed motor. Washer no longer detects the water level. if you have it on small just continues to fill with water and never stops.. Washer flooded gargage. Any...


This can be due to failure of the pressure sensor within the washer which should output to the processor to cut off the inlet valve when the set water level has reached.
You can test this out by blowing into the tubing and testing the continuity of the switch to confirm if the diaphragm is intact.
