Our Maytag Centenial washer would start agitating before it even filled up with water and would leave the clothes wet at the end of the cycle. After a little research on the web I found that the ATC-Auto Load Sensing switch was responsible for this. I also found a video on Youtube that shows how to open the control panel and access the switch. Instead of replacing the switch I decided to remove it and clean the electrical contacts with a product called Deoxit D5 (available on Amazon). I then re-installed the switch and the problem was all gone. It has been almost a month and the washing machine is working good as new.

I had the same issue as Felix Pimentel described in his review. Rather than removing the entire switch, I just unplugged the hose and blew into it. My washer went back to functioning properly, and lasted for another month or two. Each time the sensor fails I just blow into the hose again, and it works.

After my Maytag MVW C6ESWW1 started to fill the washer to the top on every load, I knew it was the water sensor. After looking up the part and reading the other reviews, I did what the other folks did and simply took apart the washer and blew directly into the sensor where the hose was attached. I looked at the contacts and everything looked good so I put everything back to see what would happen. Low and behold, the water level now fills to the appropriate level! I am not sure how long this fix will last, but its been about a month so far with no more problems. So, instead of blowing the money, first take off the hose, blow into the sensor and check everything out. Reattached and do a test run with a low level load to see how much it fills. If everything looks good. Congrats on saving money!

10/25/2012 UPDATE - The fix is still working as of today !

I have had to replace this part so many times that I don't even call for a service person. I order and DIY. The problem is that this part is such a piece of crap it breaks again and again.

As a DIY person this worked well using the U-tube video to replace it. The other suggestions to make the old one work did not work for me.

Our Maytag Centennial washer suddenly quit filling with water, both hot and cold. Applying power directly to the solenoid valves got water, so I knew that wasn't the problem. The wiring diagram, that was stashed in the control area, indicated where power was coming into this sensing switch and where it should be coming out at the appropriate times. There wasn't any power coming out, so I knew the old switch was the culprit. WARNING: TO PERFORM THESE TESTS, IT IS NECESSARY TO BE WORKING WITH HOT WIRES. IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO TAKE APPROPRIATE PRECAUTIONS, GET A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN. Swapping out the switch itself is a 5 minute job. Access the control area using a plastic putty knife to release the front corner latches. The replacement part is Revision G. My original part was Revision C, so there have been multiple changes. We still don't appreciate the load sensing feature of this model, as it seems to not use enough water, but lifting the lid after starting will override it. This switch controls multiple functions, so various malfunctions can be traced back to it. My problems were probably the result of a voltage spike that zapped the circuit board inside it. This replacement part might very well deserve 5 stars, but who knows how long it will last?

Washing machine agitates upon filling and leaves a significant amount of water after the spin cycle. I have had to replace the load sensing switch 3 times in 3 years. Fortunately, I bought an extended warranty. I will never buy another Whirpool product nor should you.

YEA!!! Whirlpool is now selling a product made in the usa (formerly made in CHINA) to replace the defective product they put in originally...oh they know all about it; thats why WOW its a new manufacturer who makes it. HMMM and no recall and no coverage for it, you the consumer get stuck and they dont care. Google the part # and you will see the countless references to this issue.

NEVER TRUST WHIRLPOOL.
