Re: wi 101 INDEST
You might have a pressure switch problem due to a blockage in the sump , but more likely the fault is down to tracking on your control board. You might be lucky and find that if you take the board out and clean it around the the botttom of the printed side it might just work, failing that I suggest you call an engineer

The pressure switch, also called the water level switch, is what control the amount of water goes in the machine, If your machine is constantly filling to the overflow point, then that is your problem. Now, if water is going in and the level is staying the same then your machine drain line is lower than the pump and your siphoning out the water as it goes in. Pull the drain up a little a that should fix the problem.
your drain hose is installed incorrectly. it rise at least 36" or so (preferably higher) before it enters the stand pipe (drain pipe connected to the houses plumbing), and there has to be an air break (i.e., not sealed off where the drain hose enters the stand pipe). hope this helps.
more than likely the pump needs replacing, first of all remove the outlet drain hose from the the place it discharges and lower it into a bucket,this should allow it to syphon away,you may need to empyt the bucket a few times once the machine is empty you should be able to put it on its spin cycle once it has spun locate and remove the filter to remove any objects or lint, fill machine with warm water and try to drain and spin via the programme,if this do not work fit a new pump
it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Hi You need to higher your outlet pipe on the back of the machine there is usually a clip to hold the pipe in place 3/4 of the way up the machine so it looks like a u upside down its should stop the machine from emptying straight away
Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.
