problem was caused by lever mechinism under lid ,which pushes down safety lever inside top box behind electronic control pad. when lid is closed. Adjusted to suit , now machine is working fine.

Testimonial: "very helpful, spot on !"
Does machine stop filling if you discnnect from power? If it does, the problem lies with timer/control unit, or fault in pressure switch/ tube. Check pressure tube (thin rubber pipe that goes from water level selctor switch to side of outer bowl) for holes- replace if faulty. You can test pressure switch by remove pressure tube from outer bowl and blowing thru tube- you should hear the water level switch click when you blow, and then click again when you release pressure. If it keeps filling even with power off, you have a faulty inlet valve. If you remove top panel (3 screws along top rear-power off first!!), you will see the inlet valves- one for hot, one for cold. The valve is the thing the inlet hoses screw onto. New valves availble from any good spare parts supplier, relatively inexpensive part. Good luck!!

Hi mark just read your posting.Now what country do you live in.If you live in Australia then I can give you some phone numbers.Regarding your machine it does sound like the control board.Probably the power supply section of the board is faulting.Please reply with additional information and I can help you further.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question !!!!

Try running the washer through rinse/spin cycle,then normal cycle without any detergent.
SF is suds failure,or too much detergent or wrong type of detergent.You need to use H E type detergent.
This should clear the machine out.
