could it be anything else?
Expert:  repairman4734 replied 6 years ago.
No, this switch is pressure filled. Tube runs down to bottom of tub from water level switch.
Depending on which level you set it at, water enters tube and pushed air against the switch. The switch corresponds to how you set it. When its satisfied, then it switches to the wash cycle. Thanks.

Another thot and just wondering? When you are not washing and the machine sits idle, or you come back next day, do you find water in the bottom of the tub or is it dry?
