Does the machine agitate as soon as the cycle starts. I have changed many of those sensors.

Pull the hose off of the ATC and blow through it to make sure it's clear and not leaking.  If that checks out, replace ATC.

If it does is this a bad ATC?  The one I am working on is doing this.  I thought it was maybe a new way of doing things, help get clothes balanced in washer..

Does it fill with water at the same time as agitating?

Do you have the exact same model number?

Could also be timer

Yes it's the exact model number, is adgitating at fill, is spraying at end.  I just found another post, called soggy clothes. I linked it to my post.

 

You had reponded to it.  The guy there replaced the atc, that fixed it.  I see timer can be a problem, and then there is the blow in the hose fix.  The post I just linked to mine,    one person put some tape on something, tube to seal it I assume.  was talking about hot water getting on the ATC.  I dont have a hot water problem.  It's cold where I am working.

The problem at the beginning of the cycle sounds like an atc problem. The wet clothes problem sounds like a possible timer problem but that could as well be the atc. Is the pressure tube clear? Does it do it in the rinse cycle too?
