Customer Question

I have a GE washer with a Bosch water level sensor. The tank never fills adequately. I notice on the sensor there are 6 Philip type screws. Is there one of these adjustments that I can turn to increase the water level?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: About 4 years old. Model GTWN4250M1WS
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes, I am very handy mechanically
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No

The switches are not designed to be adjusted. If you wanted to try to adjust them you'd turn all the plastic philips screws the same amount counter-clockwise to increase the water level 1/4 turn at a time. Other than that you really should just replace the switch because you can result in a flood if the switch isn't working properly. The part number for the switch is WH12X10412 for your model.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
