I am not with the washer right now you have any other suggestions before I go back. Is there any way that I can bypass the switch in the mean time to disqualify the pressure switch.

  • The pressure switch has one common terminal and connects to either the full or empty terminals.
  • Remove the clear plastic hose from the switch and blow into the switch to make it click from the empty connection to the full connection.
  • Also blow through the clear plastic hose (goes to the water level near the bottom of the tub) to check that it is not clogged.

  • If you have a meter you can check the voltage in either position.

 

-----

  • If you don't have a meter, the follow the hot wire from the power cord to the common terminal on the pressure switch.
  • Mark the wires connected to the other 2 terminals on the pressure switch.
  • When the washer is in the spin mode, disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet to remove the other 2 wires from the pressure switch and cover the ends with insulation to prevent short-circuits.
  • Keep the common wire connected to its terminal.
  • Then jumper the common terminal to one of the free wires to see if it spins.
  • Apply power and test.
  • If not, disconnect power, remove that free wire and try the other free wire.
