Ok, I don't understand why. I have never seen that specific issue when replacing the valve. I will opt out so another expert that may have seen this issue can help you.

I don't know if this will work on your valve but on some you can swap the components from one valve body to another. The solenoids can be levered off and swapped and the centre of the valve which opens and closes to let the water pass can be unscrewed. Hopefully this could work for you.

There’s no pressure switch like that on this machine
Appliance Technician: Gavin, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 month ago

Some of them are located on the circuit board themselves. The diagram is not very clear and I've not worked on your specific model
