Hello, thanks for letting us answer your questions. We appreciate your business!
I have run across this number of times, with exactly the same symptoms you are describing.
You need to replace the water level control switch on the console
Click here for purchase
That looks like part number W10177795. Is this correct?.
no clickclick on the link i gave you above
oops! i didnt see the link
I got it, I was looking at an old diagram. The link you sent me is a manufacturer replacement part. If this does not fix the issue, what would be my next step? Timer?
The switch is call the load control switch and it integrated in controlling the amount of water based on the amount of clothes you put in the machine.
It will fix it
One more piece of nonsense required by the government for saving 3 gallons of water :(
Other times on that control you will not even get water
Did you have any other questions?
on the part description from the link, it says it is the Automatic temperature control sensing switch. I have an appliance part store here in town, and I just want to double check before I go there on monday. They usually do not allow returns.
I understand what you are saying, the part description is misleading. It does much more than just control the temp. You see all those connections on the back. You would not need that many connections for just a temp control. You also see the water level sense tube connects to it.
If you are concerned about it possibly not fixing your problem, order the part from the link I gave you. Repair Clinic will allow returns for 365day regardless of whether you install it or not. That is a very liberal return policy that even I don;t offer to my customers.
It may take a couple of days to get the part depending on where you live, but it would be a comfort to know you can return it if you needed to.
Thank you. I may just do that.

Hi, I just had another question about the issue I was having with my washer. I have not put on the new sensor switch yet because I wanted to make certain that there is not a timer issue. I don't know for sure, but it seems like its off by a cycle. It will spin the load at the end, and then fill back up a little with water. If I set it to the "second rinse" cycle this does not happen. Is this something that could be fixed by the sensor switch?
Yes, MattIf you are concerned about whether replacing the sensor will solve your problem, I would advise you to purchase the part from here. They offer a 365day money back return policy even for electrical parts. This is a very liberal return policy that I have not seen ,but on a couple of websites and certainly not from any local store you will deal withclick here for purchaseThat way you will have the peace of mind to know you can get your money back if for a unlikely event that the sensor is not the problem.
