Thanks. I will order that part and try it BUT how do we know that it is nt the punp and/or the intake valve as well, please? Ben
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.
the pump has nothing to do with water coming into the washer .and if it is a water valve the only way you will get the water to stop filling is to turn the water supply off .You did not say you could not get it to stop filling ,is that your issue?Or does it just overflow ,you turn the timer off and the water stops?

Cannot get it to stop filling so it overflows. The timer appears to be finished with the cycle yet continues to fill and overflow. Ben

The link for the pressure switch that you gave me shows that the part is BACKORDERED. Can you suggest another source, please? Thanks, Ben
