Has your machine stopped full or empty of water?

If you select a new wash, what exactly happens?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It has stopped empty of water. If i select a new wash, it seems to work for a while (the majority of the wash) but then starts to flash the F27 again.

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
OK, that's strange as F27 is a pressure system fault.

Unplug the appliance.
Take the top off.
Locate the pressure switch.
It has a thin tube attached that runs down to the bottom of the machine.
Take the tube off of the pressure switch and blow down it as hard and as long as you can.

Refit the tube and try again.
