Pressure switch hose

When machine leaks people say new pressure switch.Cost a bit before so you pay out check the hose attatched first, mine had a hole in at bottom.I ordered part 7 pound and have replaced(small hands needed and bit fiddly) but have just did my first wash and all great. prior to fixing I checked all other hoses putting water in as sometimes they get loose or bent.

Error Code F33 after new bellow put in. How can I fix it?

Just fixed my F33 error code for GHW9400. This code is for the pressure switch HOSE. Mine had a small pin hole. Cost:: the dealer gave me a free new hose. Remove the top and back. In the top right hand corner (at the back of machine) you will see a small hose attached to the pressure switch box. It is small black& 3/8" and about 2 1/2 ft long coming out of the bottom.. Mine was not attached with anything. Pull off at the top and bottom. Look for even the tiniest hole. Hose probably can't cost a couple of dollers.
Replace and just finished my first error free load. It may be causing your leak too.

water fill does not shut off

problem caan be the pressure switch. to test it, put on a length of hose, set machine going and use your mouth to pressurize the hose and water should stop. if it doesn't then pressure switch is faulty.
also the pressure switch hose goes to an air chamber and this can be clogged with gunge

F-04 flashing on my Hotpoint WT960 washing machine

F04 is an error code for the pressure switch not sensing the water level.

This may be a faulty switch, or more likely cause is a damaged rubber pipe connecting it to the drum area.

To have a look, Turn off and unplug machine, turn off water inlet.
Move the machine out to ge access to the back.
Remove the top rear screws, and slide the top off.
The pressure switch will be connected to one of the small hoses. Check all the hoses for condition and chafing, and that they are still attatched. The pressure sensor woll be a small unit plugged into the end of one, with a hose going straight down past the normal water level - possibly down to the bottom pump area. It usually is connected to a small inverted empty canister.

If the connections and hose seem fine, you can test the switch by blowing hard into the end of the attatched hose (you have to take it off to test with hose attatched)

I can find replacement parts dealers for you if you specify your main town.

Thanks for using Fixya! - if this provides a solution, please take a moment to rate it as such. Thank you.

Machine leaks

Leaking water usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn't drain water from a backed-up standpipe (see HERE for information on clearing clogged drains). NOTE: To prevent serious flood damage that can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install "no-burst" stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown in the illustration. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. 1) Check the fittings where hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if necessary, or replace hoses altogether (be sure to turn the water off before removing hoses and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them). 2) Determine whether machine is over-sudsing during wash loads-- this can cause the entire washing machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring a mixture of 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1 quart water into the washer. Then switch to less detergent or use a low-sudsing variety. 3) Call a repairperson. The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced.
