Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The pressure switch probably senses that there is water in the tub that needs to be pumped out if the pump keeps running. It may be that the tube from the tub to the pump is plugged. The pressure switch is in the timer console and will have a very small hose attached to it. If you remove that hose and blow through it (the hose), does air easily pass?
