Question about Washing Machines
I have a whirlpool stylemaster that won't shut off the water level and start the wash cycle. It will overflow if I don't manually turn it off. Is this problem always a faulty switch? I checked and the little hose going to the switch is on tight.
What's up with it?
Some of the pressure switches have adjustments on them, some don't. The switch also has electrical connectors that can oxidize (corrode) and not make good contact. You can check the electrical connection to make sure you don't have a loose or corroded plug. The air hose could also have an air leak somewhere, causing the air to escape as the tub fills. This will cause low or no pressure to shut the switch off. Inspect the hose from the switch all the way to where it connects to the tub. Test pull on the hose to see if it is nice and snug on either end. Usually if it is loose on the end connected to the tub, it will leak slightly. If you don't find anything wrong with the air hose, the last choice is the pressure switch. They don't cost that much. If you wish to replace it, post back with your model number and I can give you a part number and instructions on how to replace it.
