Yes and no

It is more probable that there is a jelly made of soap in the tube that supplies the pressure to that switch.

The switch relies on air pressure from a small chamber on the bottom of the outer drum this pressure is transferred to the pressure switch

If there is soap in the pipe the pressure is not sufficient to change the switch over.

Would suggest that you check and clean that before you turn the set screw in the pressure switch as that will both alter the high and low water intake

Users manual for admiral atw4475xq


ATW4475XQ - Admirial Water Saver washer - Adjust Rinse cycle water level
The rinse cycle water level can be adjusted. Unplug the machines power.
You can youtube a video on how to remove the top control panel, its just 2 screws on the back of it,
phillips head. Swing the control panel up, and find something to support it so you have both hands free.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYn0_qCFdec)
You'll see a clear plastic tube coming up from the back rear like 3/8 in diameter, to a "T"
connection. The one that goes to the left, thats the wash water level switch it connects to. The one you
can adjust, large, medium, small, from the front of the panel . The other off the T goes to the rinse
water level switch. There is not a knob to adjust it. But if you look at the bottom of the lever
mechanism/cam pickups of both switchs, you will see that they are the same. Rotate the wash load size
(knob on outside of control panel) from small to large, back to small, notice how the mechanism changes?
The rinse water level swtich acts the same way, although it is only a 2 position switch, small and
large. Once you watch the wash level mechanism move from rotating it back and forth a few times, you
should be able to see how to rotate that same mechanism on the rinse switch 1 click. It will click into
place, there are only 2 positions as I said and from the factory its in small, so once it "clicks in"
dont go any further. I did mine with a very small screw driver without removing the rinse switch.
Once you get that hidden switch turned to the other position, put it back together, fire it up and now
your rinse is the large level, all the time.
NOTE: There is a white plunger out of the end of each switch with a screw located in place. Dont mess
with the screw or that plunger. As you adjust the lever mechanism/cam this adjusts the amount of that
plunger sticking out, which changes the pressure pickup for water level.

GE WJRR4170 washer comes out of overflow tube on super load. It does not on Large load size. I have the front off and can see a large difference in water level from large to super size. Is this adjustable?


I have a 2005 model GE washer that would overfill only on SUPER size load. After looking around on the web, then inside the machine, I checked the tube from the tub to the switch, no problem there. Then I found an adjustment screw on the load size selector / pressure switch (all one piece). I moved it one turn clockwise, then ran a test cycle. I got lucky on the first try... no more overflow, the water comes up just above the top holes in the tub. I hope this will help others.

Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load


remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling

My kenmore top load washer wont stop filling....it flooded the house


Continious filling is usually 1 of 3 problems. 1 - a bad water level switch. or 2 - a bad water valve or 3 - your drain hose is pushed too far down into the wall (it should only go in about 6 " so it doesn't siphon the water right back out). The easiest way to tell which it is is to start filling the washer and then unplug it. If the water continous to flow, bad valve. If it stops a bad water level switch. Kenmore have 3 main ways to get to the water level switch. 1 - there are 2 plastic caps on either end on the front of the console (the parts where all the knobs and dials are) Pop these off and there are 2 phillips screws underneath. 2 - On the back of the console where it meets the top of the machine are 2 phillips screws. 3 - there are 2 clips under the console. Insert a putty knife between the console and the top of the washer in the front to pop the clips.

Kenmore 90 series top loader washer water level.


There are easy checks before you replace the level selector body

remove the trim plates at both ends of the control panel to expose Phillips head screws 1 at each end. remove the screws
lift and swing the control panel up and over the back, it is hinged at the top.
The washer can be operated in this condition for testing

1 Rremove the air hose, and blow it out.
often water remains in the tube after changing levels, the water is not compressible so a small change in water level in the tank, makes too much difference in the sensor.
reconnect the tube and try a cycle ~1/3 chance of fixing it

If fail,
2 The spring inside Kenmore water level sensors that reacts to air pressure in the tube is not up to the job and stretches, not noticeable till changing water level settings moves the anchor point of the spring.
pull off water level knob from control panel front, from control panel back depress lock tab at right of level selector body rotate counter clockwise 45 deg and remove
adjacent to selector knob shaft is 1/8inch nut, turn clockwise to raise water level counter-clockwise to lower water level, test, adjust, test adjust ~1/2chance of fixing it

If fail
replace level selector body

Washer will not fill all the way.


you may have to adjust/replace the water level switch. it is located behind the control panel. the water level knob is attached to it. it does have a screw adjustment.

Short water flow time


If it's new you should call for service. Ask the technician to turn the water level switch set screw so it will stop filling at a higher setpoint rather than stopping at the edge of the gray cylinder baffels.You are aware the factory water level switch is pre set for low level because of water restriction regulations for manufacturers.But that means nothing for me if my laundry is comming out still dirty.. Much later and after much research i turned the water level switch set screw under the lid clockwise a half turn to have my WM0642HW fill up to the lower door seal to tumble in some water.How it was set before resulted in terrible wash performance especially with full loads! Forget it! It was WICK washing instead of tumbling in some water.Since i made the adjustment on the water level sensor the washer is 100% better than before.Trust Me!
