  Open the control panel and on the load sense switch, unplug the pressure hose and the two wiring harness connectors and plug them back in again. Blow into the pressure hose first to make sure it is not clogged. If this does not fix the problem, replace the switch. It is a high failure item on this washer.

Is there anything on these washers that aren't?  :whistling:

  I don't know of any other part on this Whirlpool direct drive washer that has a failure rate anywhere near the rate of the load sense switch. There was a lawsuit against them because of these switch failures. Many people had to have it replaced multiple times. I don't know what ever happened with that, but if you complain to Whirlpool, you may get lucky and get some kind of compensation.

Oops! I read the model# completely wrong! Here I though it was the newer belt drive toploader. My bad
