Default Water level switch arcs when turning timer on.
Model Number: WWP1180GAWAD   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years

When I pull the timer knob out to start the washer a bright flash (arc) comes from the water level switch and the breaker trips. I removed the wires from the water level switch and pulled the timer knob out and this time there was no arc. Could the problem be a bad water level switch or is it the timer? Your expert answers are greatly appreciated.
