Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.

Secondly I do not know whether you are male/female, age or skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating


If the drain pump has been changed and is all clear an that issue is happening that is either a clogged pressure tube/port or a bad pressure switch typically on the unit Double check that the pressure tube to the pressure switch is all clear and if it is I would replace the pressure switch on it.
