F27 is a pressure switch fault.

Has it stopped full of water?



Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No, it stops normaly (except from not releasing/opening the lid), no water inside.
I did actually check that it was empty by opening the pump and filter, there was almost no water, max a deciliter drained from the drain hose.



Ok try this and see what happens.


Take the top off the washer and from there on the right you should see the pressure switch. It will have a few wires going to it and a thin tube.


Remove this tube from it and blow hard through it.

Then check the wires going to the switch and make sure its all ok.


Then refit the hose and retry the washer and see how it goes from there. But if still the same then its possiley either the pressure switch itself at fault or the control board im afraid.


But try the pressure hose first as this may cure it.
