Hi Kenneth

KevinWhiteJA :

Welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is it ?

JACUSTOMER-pl1gbp8q- :

5 years old

KevinWhiteJA :

Have you tried to clean the drain pump filter assembly located inside the bottom front of the unit ? Does it flash any error code ?

JACUSTOMER-pl1gbp8q- :

Yes I took the filter out and rinsed it and then fitted it back in, there is no error code it just switches itself off

KevinWhiteJA :

how did this problem start ? did it overfill ?

JACUSTOMER-pl1gbp8q- :

just started all of a sudden in the last few days, sorry that is all I know

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, can you do few things...first pull the unit out and then take the lid off the unit...there is pressure switch , take the hose connected to it and make sure it is clean

KevinWhiteJA :

after this you will have to clean the drain pump assembly

KevinWhiteJA :

sometimes if something is stuck in there it will cause these kind of issues...

JACUSTOMER-pl1gbp8q- :

what does the pressure unit look like ? where is it situated ?

KevinWhiteJA :

if the problem returns after doing all this unfortunately you will have to replace the electronic control

KevinWhiteJA :

also when the lid is off inspect the control for any burns

JACUSTOMER-pl1gbp8q- :

ok will call repair guy......

KevinWhiteJA :

pressure switch is located towards the right when you open the lid

KevinWhiteJA :

there is a thin hose attached to this pressure switch

KevinWhiteJA :
