110.20922990 Washer agitates while it fills and fills while it spins

4 posts in this topic

110.20922990 Washer agitates on high speed while it fills, then goes back to slower speed (if selected) once pressure switch is satisfied. Also, it will fill throughout the entire drain/spin cycle.

Customer (a friend) was complaining that it would not complete cycles properly.

As I was testing, I switched the speed selector from Normal (slow/fast) to Delicate (slow/slow) then back again while it was spinning/filling, and the problem disappeared and would not happen again.

Timer? Speed selector? Hobgoblins?

Check the pressure switch contacts to make sure they're not stuck just to cover the bases. You can actuate it by gently blowing in the tube with jut enough pressure to switch the internal contacts in the switch. You'll hear a click when it switches.

You can do a similar test on the speed selector switch contacts, although you'd actuate it in a slightly different way. :sillytongue:

If the switches checks out okay, then you need to replace the timer ==> http://www.repaircli.../3953248/547857

Pressure switch test is good. Changing the speed selector switch does what it is supposed to on each selection without hesitation. Is there any other test for this switch?

... Is there any other test for this switch?

disconnect the Tan wire from the Water Level (Pressure) Switch and run the Washer again.

If now it doesn't Agitate while filling, bad Water Level Pressure Switch

If it continues to Agitate while filling... bad Timer
