Neptune Front Load Washer leaking water


My washer is leaking water heavily from the front door (over filling). Model Number MAH6500AWW. I had to turn off the water and wet vac out the water. Is this a switch problem?

Most likely clogged water pressure switch line. Crap builds up on the drum + blocks off the line.

Could also be failed pressure switch or failed water inlet valve.

on top of the pump is the water level switch, remove it and check for gunk build up blocking the little pressure hole. FYI, it may be easier for you to remove the pump and switch as an assembly
