Kelly's Korner - Whirlpool Water Level Switch Change

Hey, all,

Last week I talked about some of the reasons why part numbers change.  This week I am going to talk about just one instance.


Several years ago (2011 actually) Whirlpool had to change the water level switch (pressure switch) in some washers to meet DOE (Department of Energy) requirements.  I won't go into all the wording in the Service Memo, but suffice it to say that they had to make changes.  Whirlpool provided us with a list of model numbers affected so we could get you the correct new switch.

If the water level switch on the Whirlpool/Maytag/Kenmore washer comes up as a W10156252 it will not sub to another part number.  You need to call us to get the correct one because it all depends on what that particular model number is.  There are two different replacements for this so please do not assume you know which of the two are needed.  Please call us here at W L May and we will get you the correct one.

We strive to get you the most up to date information from the manufacturers and the correct parts all the time.  Not to say that we aren't human at times and make mistakes, but our success rate is second to none.  Please use our over 200 years of experience! (yeah, we've only been in business for 91 but most of our parts experts are into double digits in years here!)

Have a great week!
