Check to be sure the air tube to the pressure switch is clear before replacing the switch.

Other Causes and Conditions

Low Water Pressure from House Supply

If the washer is overflowing the water pressure to the water inlet valve might be too low. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to shut off properly. If the pressure is lower, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. This results in the valve leaking water into the washer and causing it to overflow.
