Hi This is unfortunately a man board problem.

I wish they sold components for that one, but they only sell the board complete.

Its kind of expensive here in the states.

But if you want to replace that board I can locate a good source for you.

Also I will advise you on the installation if you need me:-)

Since this question will go on for some time, (until you have the board) if you will rate me as good service or better, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you so your question wont time out or end. And in that way, you can get in touch with me anytime no matter how long this takes and it wont cost you anything more for the questions and answers:-)

Thank you

Tech Michael

Relist: Inaccurate answer.
The answer given was incorrect.

It's always easy to blame the main board when replacing it costs more than the value of the machine - so will never be tested

I located the fault which was in fact a blocked capilliary tube to the fill sensor which was then causing a time out.
