I can blow in the vinyl tube and the switch works, but it doesn't when
hooked to the tub on a kenmore washer. Tube seems clear and I don't
think there is anything to "fix" on the tub end. I cut some of the tube
off for a fresh connection, but the washer still over fills.
The switch may have a slow leak, I would replace it vs. a flooded wash
space. To test connect a tube to it and form the tube into a U shape. Pour
enough water into the open end of tube for the water to rise to within a
few inches of the switch, the water in the switch side of the U should be
lower due to the air above it being compressed. Wait and see if the level
Parts man at Bells says I should be able to blow in the pressure tube
from the switch end. I can't so now its remove the inner
basket....should be interesting.
any advice would be appreciated, thanks for the info so far.
Steve. If there is a blockage , you may be able to get to it by pushing a
piece of coat hanger wire though one of the holes in the inner tub ( if this
is an older model built this way) and check at the large opening of the hose
mounted on outer tube that the small plastic hose connects to. Or remove
plastic hose from it and fish down to see if you can dislodge anything. Hope
this helps. Warren
