this machine is 2 years old. the door locks ok and it will run fine if you set a spin cycle. it only has a problem if you set a wash cycle. it pumps out for a min and then stops and does nothing. i am not sure the interlock is the problem

If you have already cleaned the drain pump located at the bottom and also the black hose attached to it then take off the top and you will see a pressure switch located towards the right... clean the thin hose attached to it and make sure it is not clogged ... reattach everything and it should now work...let me know how it goes.

hi there. would the pressure switch be still faulty if the machine does the spin cycle ok.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 1 year ago.
I am not saying it is faulty...I am asking you to clean it .. it keeps on pumping water out so it can be due to pressure switch
