I have a GE Washer, Model #WHDSR109J5WW. Water wont stop

Resolved Question:

I have a GE Washer, Model #WHDSR109J5WW. Water won't stop running when the tub
is filling up. We have replaced the water level switch, and the pressure tube is clear.
We have only had the washer for 6 months. What else can be wrong?

The water did not stop by blowing into the tube.

Then the water level switch is bad.

We just put a new water level switch on it last night. This the switch that I turn

depending on how much water I need.

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 8 years ago.

As long as it is hooked up right it is bad.It is not the first time this has happened i can't count how many times this has happened to me.
