Question about Roper Washing Machines
All new washing machines in the US, as of 2011, must comply with Govt energy regulations. Save water & Destroy your clothes! This model has 2 pressure switches. The main one (on the left) controls the wash water level, and the rinse level switch (unseen, mounted to the right, controls the rinse water level. BOTH ARE ADJUSTABLE ! First - UNPLUG THE WASHER ! Tilt the control panel back. You will see the two pressure switches. In the center of each is a silver adjustment screw going into a white plastic plunger. Using a 3/16" socket or nut driver, turn the screw on the RIGHT SIDE pressure switch clockwise until it is almost all the way in to the white plastic plunger. The next step is a little trickier. Being careful not to touch any wires, Plug the washer in, Set the water level to HIGH, and start the washer . Raise the Lid, and observe the incoming water. It will stop when the pressure switch is satisfied - but the water level will be rediculously low. As you did with the Right side switch, adjust the LEFT side switch the same way - only 3-4 turns at a time. After each adjustment, push the white plunger in and it will begin to fill again. When it stops filling, check the water level - you may have to repeat this step 3 or four times, until the water level is 3 - 4" below the white plastic guard on the tub. That's it, Unplug the washer again, tilt the control panel back down & lock it in place. Plug the washer back in, lower the lid & let it run through the cycle. This repair will probably void your warranty, and is not recommended to ANYONE who is not familiar with tools, machinery and electricity. To those who can, **** the torpedoes and full speed ahead ! To those who can't, show this to your repairman. The advantages are 1- Cleaner clothes 2- Less damage to clothes 3- Less wear & tear on the machine, as it doesn't have to work as hard moving the load in too little water.

That sounds like there might be something inside the tube that runs from the (outside) tub to the level switch. The switch has a very small hole where the hose connects; corrosion can partially block that little hole and prevent free air movement.
