Is the level switch positional, i.e. lo- medium- hi, or is it variable type switch? does it fill to the point of flowing over the top? You may have a blocked vacuum hose to the pressure switch, or it may be a level switch itself is faulty. You can test the switch for continuity if you can access it and have an ohm meter/ multi meter.

Whirlpool GSQ9669LW1 washer. Originally Load Size was set to small. After water was filled to that level and machine started to work, wanted to add more water. Turned the Load Size knob to Medium, nothing...


You would have to start the wash cycle all over in order to get enough water for the med load size. Once the washer starts it cycle you have to cancel that cycle to start a new one. Hope this is a help to your question

The load size knob just spins and doesnt select size of load large medium or small i think its set at medium so i can't set it at large or small


Pull the knob off and look at it. You will probably find that the knob is bad.Hope this fixed your problem.If not the knob then the switch is bad.

Washing Machine wont recoginze the load amount to fill with water, ex..small, med, it justs keep filling up to the brim??


Sounds like your problem is one of three things. Most common is that you have to "reset" the water level. This is done by turning the water level knob passed the large load size, and then down to small. Any time you want to go to a smaller sized load, you have to do this. Another possibility is that the pressure switch is bad, this is an easy fix (although not as easy as the reset) The switch can be purchased thru a local parts supply house. And the last thing could be a bad water valve. This will leak and continue to fill the washer after it is already full, this however is usually followed with water all over the floor. If it is not the reset, write me back and I'll walk you thru the other repairs. Hope this helps!

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.
