Major Appliances/Washer water level problem, and won't spin



My washer would not sense the water level correctly.  I have to manual make sure it is at the right level before starting (closing the lid).  And recently it just won't work, it would wash ok, but during spin cycle, it would only drain the water but would not get to spin, but after a night of rest I tried to turn on spin cycle, it would work.

I getting a feeling that the water sensor might think that there is still water in the tub, and would not let it spin.

QUESTION: yes, i know how to use a multimeter, where is the water pressure switch, and what kind of reading am i expecting?


before testing anything.......make sure all the hoses are on snuggly and the connections are snug.  THe water level control is in the control panel at the top.  It is the control that has rubber hoses....  

I think at this point you really need to know exactly....what is working or not working so I can look at the big picture.  Your unit is very complicated and complex.  Not know what you are doing could actually cost you more money than correcting the original problem.  Everything comes apart easily.  Pry NOTHING....  IF you are considering repairing this yourself....locate the service tech sheet in the control panel and it will give you some guide line for troubleshooting.       Good Luck, Eric
