PLEASE HELP my washer over fills the water doesn't stop , but what i found was that when i dissconect the pressure hose that goes to the water sensor and i blow into it it does work fine it starts the agitation but if i let go it will keep on filling with water, could it be the sensor or is it that there is not enough pressure going into the hose from the tumbler?

I cannot find any info on the given model number, please check it.

Below is my standard blurb about this problem.

As the water rises, the air pressure in the tube increases until it reaches the switch's set point then the switch activates turning off the water and starting the agitate.

Possible problems.
1. Gunk blocking water from entering the tube. Remove the tube at the switch and blow into it to clear the plug.
2. Cracks or holes in the tube allowing the air to escape. Inspect the tube. Also check that it is tight on the switch, if not, cut off half an inch and re-seat it.
3. The switch is toast. Get a piece of tubing with the same internal diameter and attach this to the switch. Start a fill, then blow into the tube. You should be able to stop the water flow without blowing very hard.
If you cannot stop it the switch is toast.

Note: That you may be able to stop it by blowing into then tubing and it may still be no good as it needs too much pressure to activate the switch.
So if the tubing is OK replace the switch.
