The problem can be found if you can check if the pressure switch contact is working and sends the signal back to the controller unit. If not there is fault in the wiring as you have replaced the switch.
Also if the switch works then the controller unit is at fault and is not reacting to the input from the water level sensor.

Water keeps filling but will not start cycle.


The top load washer utilizes a pressure switch attached to a clear plastic hose. If the water fills the tub but will not stop filling you will need to remove the top panel and inspect the hose for obstructions. You may need to disconnect the tube flush it clean and make sure no foreign debris are in the connector on the pressure switch. If the tub will over fill, you may need to replace the pressure switch. If the water will not fill the tub and the water continues to run you need to check the drain pump. Is water exiting through the drain hose? If so the drain pump could be the problem.

Water wont stop filling on wash or rinse cycle , complete flood


take out the two screws that hold the top console down,flip the console up and on the left side you'll see the water level switch,make sure the clear hose is connected to it,if that's off the water will keep filling into the washer,if it is on take it off and blow gently into the pressure switch or the water level switch and listen for a clicking sound,if it doesn't click you could have a bad water level switch,next,unplug the washer,disconnect the lid switch harness and with a screw driver pop the two metal clips holding the back panel to the top of frame,pull the frame backwards to you and remove the frame off of washer,have someone blow into the clear line and check for any pin holes in the clear line or see if it popped off the bottom plastic piece that it goes to.if it looks ok change out the pressure switch but if there's a hole in the clear line that switch won't work it can't hold pressure and the water will just keep filling up the washer and won't stop like it's doing now,send the model number and i'll look up your part for you,or call your parts store and give them the model number and order the pressure switch or water level switch,it's the same thing,let me know what you find

My washer will not stop filling - it overflowed the tub, and will not drain.


If you can hear water running into the machine when the power is off then the fill valve has failed

If the water switches on and off when you switch the machine power supply on and off then it is either the pressure switch or the pipe supplying the pressure to the pressure switch

Easy test is to remove the pressure switch pipe at the base of the outer container and start the washer filling , blow lightly into the pipe and you should hear a click and the water should turn off

If it does not then the switch is faulty, if it does then check for congealed soap in the small plastic fitting from which you removed the pipe in the first place

DISHWASHER IS ONLY FILLING WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER


The water level detector pipe could be obstructed / blocked. This thin plastic pipe is at the bottom of the washer and as it fills to the correct level of water the pressure in the pipe activates a water level switch in the washer. Sometimes the air pressure pipe becomes blocked / obstructed or the contacts of the pressure switch become burnt. You can disconnect the pipe and blow through it and the pressure switch is normally factory set and does not need adjusting. Replace it if necessary.

Washer Dryer overfills and pours out through front door


The pressure switch tube is only about 5mm in diameter so is easy to find, to be certain it is not blocked you need to remove it and check to see it is clear, and that the lower end where it is fixed is also clear, also make sure it is not punctured as this will result in loss of air pressure and stop the switch from working..
I assume it stops filling when you turn m/c off.
If it does not then you have a sticking water inlet valve.
plz rate my solution. Thanks.

Will not Fill


BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THOSE TWO ITEMS THAT WERE REPLACED SHOULD HAVE RECTIFIED THE PROBLEM.ONE NEEDS TO KNOW IF THE BOARD THAT IT WAS TESTED WAS IN EFFECT A NEW ONE OR NOT. IF IT WAS I WOULD SUGGEST DISCONNECTING ONE HEATER WIRE (IF HEATER IS USED) THEN PULLING THE PR.SWITCH PIPE OFF FROM THE TUB AND SUCKING A VACUME ON THE PIPE. THIS WILL INDICATE A LOW LEVEL CONDITION AND ASK FOR MORE WATER.IF FILLING TIME IS THEN RUNS FOR A LONGER PERIOD, THEN THE PROBLEM IS WITH A DEFECTIVE PR.SWITCH. HOPE I HELPED?
