The water level switch (also known as a pressure switch) can be accessed by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.

2. Remove the top panel of the washer by locating and removing the three screws holding it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

3. With the top panel removed, the pressure switch will be located on the RIGHT-HAND side towards the rear. The switch is usually brown or gray in color and will be mounted to the side of the washer cabinet.

You can reference helpful exploded view parts diagrams at searspartsdirect.com. The pressure switch is referenced as item number 20 (part number W10156252). There is a substitution part number from the manufacturer available as well - W10312527.

NOTE: You can use the following websites as well:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If your model number does not cross reference to some of these websites, use the part number(s) for your search criteria. The model numbers may not always be available on every site, but the part numbers usually will cross reference.

FYI: BEFORE assuming the switch to be defective, double check to ensure the plastic air hose leading to the switch is still attached and not ripped or torn anywhere. If the air hose has come loose, or if it has any leaks, the pressure switch will not function properly and the washer will continue to fill and not shut off.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

On the inside of right-hand side panel of the body of the washer, along the top and toward the back of the machine, you'll find a rectangular box (approx 4 inches square) and right behind that is a small plastic part with a small hose plugged into the bottom of it. That small plastic box is the water level sensor, but the hose needs to be securely connected on both ends for it to operate properly.

Whirlpool Duet 9150.. should I be able to see water in the tub when it is washing? There is no visible water level. The clothes are wet but how do they get clean?


water is drawn THROUGH the clothes. There is a BIT of water in the drum - however the water sprays on the clothes during the wash cycle and draws the dirt/water/detergent THROUGH the clothes.

Same problem but model WFW9600TA00


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Is there a way to increase the water level on a whirlpool front load Duet washer model GHW-9150


If the machine is underfilling, check the water level switch. This diaphragm like device has a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to advance to the appropriate cycle. Make sure the plastic tube has no damage or obstruction. An obstruction can cause the switch to be activated too early.The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity would indicate a faulty switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.
