It is just the "balance switch" got jammed with the scum. Give a good clean, it will pop-out,and work again!
The "balance switch" is located behind the panel. You can find it connects to a white plastic lever hinging down next to the dum.

If the balance switch is corroded. - parts around New Zealand $15, and takes about 5 - 10 mins to change.
