The water level switch (aka pressure switch) senses the water level in the wash tub. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube.
If the washer fills partially, the problem is likely with the temperature selector switch or water-level pressure switch. If the washer agitates without filling, then the pressure switch is likely broken because it’s detecting the full tub of water when the tub is empty.
