Overflowed and replace water level switch 3 months ago. Made sure tube was clear and ran vinegar thru cycle. Worked fine until yesterday, when it overfilled. Any suggestions?

did you check to see if the clear hose going to the water level/pressure switch was still attached? check it at the tub end aswell

When you replaced the switch did you cut half an inch off the end of the tubing? This ensures a good seal as long as the tubing is still nice and flexible.

Probably best to replace the tubing.

Also sometimes crud can be trapped at the bottom of the tub and every once in a while it blocks the tubing. This depends on how your tubing is coonected at the tub.

Thanx Beenthereagain, The tube was very clean, but I blew vinager thru tube and cleaned both ends with a Q-tip. I guess I'll just have to watch it during filling. Any chance the water solenoid could be sticking?

yes it very well could, but usually if they do , you will notice water being added to washer when its off.
