check the drain hose installation for siphoning issues, if these washers go into a "long fill" failure the switch faults out and stops the filling, unfortunately there is not way to reset the switch

I agree.  A siphoning washer will tear up an ATC switch.

I never knew that, good to know!  I'm adding that to my notes of things to check when changing an ATC switch.  Could save a call back.  Thanks mucho!

The drain hose empties into a utility sink 33 inches above the unfinished floor. Hose ends 8 inches above the bottom of the sink. I have not seen the water level in the sink get up to the bottom of the drain hose. We do have a lint trap attached to the drain hose but it is not clogged. Water should be able to easily get out of it. Is there any of this I need to change?
