The water level is controlled by a pressure switch that is located behind the load level selector knob in the operator console. The pressure switch has electrical connections and an air hose that runs to the bottom of the wash tub. In many cases the air hose comes loose from the pressure switch. The following link explains:

Read through the link and let me know if you have any questions. If this isn't a simple matter of a loose air hose, verify your electrical contacts are clean. If all these preliminary checks fail, replace your pressure switch. I hope this helps you.

GE profile washer wont fill all the way with water. Can only wash 2 pants and 2 shirts and its set on extra large load.


A lid switch doesn't regulate water capacity and if the lid switch fails, the machine will not execute a complete wash cycle. If the washer functions but only at partial water fill for the selected load level... then the problem is likely a clogged pressure switch tube or a malfunctioned pressure switch. Got mine used online - fixed the very same issue.

Hotpoint hswp1000m washer cycle fills with water for large capacity but when it goes to rinse it won't fill anymore than low capacity of water?


It can be due to a faulty water level sensor which evidently is a pressure switch. If the diaphragm is damaged it will require a larger water level to achieve the said pressure to shut the inlet valve in all the cycles.

The water fills very slowly on rinse


You probably have a cold inlet valve with restricted flow, either because the filter on the inlet valve is clogged or because the cold valve is failing......If you wash on "warm" you have both hot and cold water mixed. On rinse there is probably only cold water used....Check water flow for HOT and COLD settings and you'll probably see the difference...Good luck...Nomess
