When you say it is stuck on quick wash but all other cycles work I am not sure what you mean? Can you explain that a little more thanks!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
First the machine works on all cycles , normal ,towels, rinse and spin, delicates, but in quick wash cycle starts which the duration is 36 minutes, when it reaches 33 minutes mark ,the drum goes back then forward for about 5 seconds and keep on doing the same for 5 minutes more or less. after that displays and error of not enough pressure on water valve.

Ok check the water inlet screens, likely the cold water valve is plugged up causing this. You may want to change out the valve.

but works on all the other cycles. I have no problem check or doing so. I know you are the expert don't you think is a board or sensor in a board that is not working?

It could be but check to see how it fills with COLD water and HOT water only on a cycle...often the cold water for rinse causes this issue. Check it out and see.
