Hi Peter did you receive my last reply about the heater and pressure switch?
Do you have a multi meter for testing?
You will need that.
Thank you

Thanks Peter,
for the heater you simply unplug it from its harness, and see if you have any resistance when you attach the probes to each side of the heater element.
As for the pressure sensor that is really difficult to test, but you can remove the plastic line and blow into it to see it will reset. But a word of caution! When that part starts to fail you could end up with a major flood, so its best to simply replace that while your doing the main board;-)
Thank you
