i am hoping that the fine folks can answer the question i have

I took the back off to see if i could put a different drain hose on
I do not think that can be done as the drain port on the pump is very small compared to other washers

But the dilemma I have is when i looked inside and saw 2 pressure stitched and hoses

one pressure switch hose goes from the tub to a y fitting with 3 port
another pressure hose goes from one port on thy fitting up thru the machine up into the control panel where the pressure switch that controls the water level with the water level knob

But one pressure hose goes from one port up to the right hand side of the machine where there is another what looks like a pressure switch

This pressure switch has a screw on it

I have tried to research it but cannot find anything on documentation to see what this is

I'll pause this for now

I guess I should have left well enough alone in my curiosity

the blasted thing will not drain

agitates in low and high

timer is advancing

going to have to do the backup of draining it by gravity

see if it spins or not

well i got it to operate

BUT and this is a big but

I had to jury-rig the safety system

I put a rubber washer used in washer hoses to seal them in the lid switch mechanism

this makes the safety lid switch engaged all the time

so the lid switch mechanism may not stop the washer if the load is unbalanced

i hope the fine members can add to this thread

going to do more test to see if it will spin if the tub is not empty

that will prove if that strange pressure switch is like in my Haier front loaders

that auxiliary pressure switch is like in my Haier front loader washer

It prevents spin until the tub is drained

I put in the spin portion of the cycle

It sat and drained the water until the tub was almost empty of water

It spun with a little bit of water still in the tub
