I have a duet washer. The add a garment light stays on constantly

Customer Question

I have a duet washer. The "add a garment" light stays on constantly and won't transfer to "wash." I have tried unplugging it for awhile and then plugging it back in.

if the unit continues to say "add a garment" and won't advance, it means that your pressure switch isn't detecting that any clothes are soaking up water. If you in face have clothes in your washer and it still gives this same message, then your pressure switch is bad because it's not recognizing that water is being absorbed.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
This makes no sense to me as no water has yet entered the machine, so obviously nothing is being absorbed.Not at all a satisfactory answer.
