The pressure sensor is inside the control panel, the panel is screwed closed from the rear
you initially check that the plastic air line is attached at top and bottom
top is easy
to reach the bottom
the top of the washer must be removed, unlock the two metal clips at the front ~3 inches from the edges by sliding a putty knife or other blunt blade between the front panel and the top
tilt up the top
visully inspect the air line running from the top left to the bottom of the drum/tank

usually the top comes off
test that first,
because if the bottom is off, there would be water running all over the floor as the pressure sensor attaches below water line

if both hose ends are attached remove the top end and blowe down it, any water in the line messes up pressure readings

the water level sensor is adjustable
remove the water level sensor body from the control panel, there is a lock clip on the right side of the control body
there is a 1/8th nut next to the shaft the knob sits on
clockwise to raise water level
counterclockwise to lower water level
if turning the adjuster has no effect, the spring inside has broken, not weakened, and the control body should be replaced.
water level control bodies are common to many models and makes, the local parts store will have a suitable one, even if labelled ge or kenmore instead of maytag

Hi I have a lg fuzzy logic wf-1022tp top loader. When I switch it on it says PE pings whole time please HELP


PRESSURE SENSOR ERROR // Water level pressure switch error
The manufacturer has assigned this error or fault code to indicate that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch.

The washing machine is overfilling the water?


A defect in the water-inlet valve .The water inlet valve is the device which allows the water in the machine when the machine is turned on.but if the valve is faulty then it will not stop water to the machine even when its turned off.so the washing machine overfills with water.
The valve is located at the back of the washer, and it will have water hoses hooked up to the back of it. Shut off the supply of water to your washer. Disconnect both hoses at the back of the washer. Before removing or checking the valve.you need to replace the valve if its faulty. If the water -inlet valve is checked OK.Then the other possibility to check out is the Water-level switch.The Water-level switch is the part that senses the water in the tub.if the water reaches to its required level.it command the water supply to stop.But if the switch is faulty then it will not sense the water and water keeps on filling and at last water overfills due to Water-level switch not working properly. The Water-level switch is located at the bottom of the outer tub in the washing machine. This will help.Thanks.

The PE or pressure sensor error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked.

Water control level


This is not adjustable. When full, the water level should be: between the very bottom of glass and about 2" up from bottom of glass. Anywhere around that level is fine. If water overfills, your pressure sensor may be bad, or its little hose could be clogged. To check for clog: Remove top (Two 1.5mm Torx screws in rear) ; On right side, see 3" round (brick red) plastic gadget (that's the pressure sensor - that determines water depth) with a few wires connected to it ; Unplug the power cord - for safety ; pull small black tube off pressure sensor and blow into it. If it's not clogged you'll hear bubbling (if there's water in machine) or just hear air going into drum. Pressure sensors very rarely go bad.

Washer overfills


This is caused by either a washer fill level sensor tube being blocked or the pressure switch it acts on being defective, the water level switch is next to the timer control on the top of the washer panel.

As it takes on water it overfills and leaks out of the drawer. An earlier answer suggests it is the pressure system. What is this and how do i fix it?


The pressure system you refer to, is the water level switch and pressure chamber, the small hose leading to the pressure switch can get blocked and cause the washer to overfill.
To check the hose, remove the lower rear panel of washer, at the bottom right you will see a large black hose, attached to this is the pressure chamber hose leading to the pressure switch.
Remove the small plastic hose and check for blockage here and in the black hose where the small hose is fastened too.
If it still overfills, then could be a faulty water level switch..

OVERFILLED AND FLOODED HOUSE


1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

Occasionally it will overfill


The water level switch is your problem.
Open the control panel and remove the plastic hose from the level switch and blow through it.
Soap and dirt clog the bottom end and prevents the switch from stopping. The water continues to flow because of this blockage.
After you reattach the plastic hose , set the washer to spin and turn it on to reset the switch.
