    What is the white sensor like piece under the tub? Looks like it should plug to the bottom of the tub.

    Doesn't looks like a thermostat as this unit has 2 of those.
    Does look kinda look like the over flow sensor ( #16 )...

      Thanks Jeff. According to Repairclinic.com, it is the temperature sensor. I thought it might be. I just couldn’t find it on the site I went to until I saw I was looking at the wrong diagram that had this part.
      Now I need to tilt it to see where it plugs in. I think it plugs vertically into a socket at the bottom of the outer basket.

        The thermostats that I saw looked different.

        411 and 350.

          Yeah, that does look different. It calls for two screws. This one does not have anywhere to put screws. The only place close enough for it to reach is a round part right along the bottom of the cabinet. No idea how that might work.
          I will take another look at the diagram I saw.
          On second thought, I do see how it could work as an overflow sensor where I attached it.
          If the tub overflows, the sensor will get wet where it is located and stop the water flow I guess. Kind of opposite of moisture sensor bars inside a dryer.
          I think we got it figured out old buddy!

            That makes pennies to me

              Lol! Yep I totally agree.
              Sorry about the later response, just had three bypasses. Wish I was talking about lid switches.
