Over flow problem solved - thanks to you
« on: October 10, 2007, 02:36:10 PM »
Sorry for the long delay in answering you.  I want you to know that because of your help the problem has been absolutely fixed.  

The problem was the machine would overflow and none of the standard repair answers would fix it.

The problem was caused by the small hole ( about the size of a pencil ) in the outer tub being clogged with lint and lime deposit.  This is the hole which allows the water to build pressure in the rubber tube which runs up to the water level control switch.  Now the tub fills correctly with no overflow problem.  I had to remove the inner and outer tubs but it was no real problem.

Thank you for the help.  This time I had no need to purchase any parts from you so there was "nothing in it" for you, but there will be a "next time" I am sure.  When the next problem develops on any appliance we have, I will be back.  The other repair sites are history.
 :)
