Question and Answers

Q:

My washing machine does not fill with water, starts to agitate when I turn it on

A:

Thank you for your question.

If the washer starts out agitating without filling, I suspect the water level switch is stuck. If the contacts in the switch are fused, the washer will never fill. I recommend unplugging the washer and access the pressure switch. To open the console you need to loosen the screws bottom of the console on the left and right sides. Once loose, rotate the console forward. Make sure the washer is empty then remove the small hose from the switch and blow through it. If the hose is clear, the problem is most likely water level switch. The part number for the switch is 3362987. If you need to order the switch please click on this link. Water level switch .

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
