Washing machine overflows and doesn't run through cycle - fault 39
Have a IW810AU F&P top loading machine. When using, the machine over fills and then stops and readout says "Fault 39". I have spoke with a technician and he suggested a pressure sensor problem. I made sure the clear tube from the bottom of bowl to control panel wasn't blocked. What else can I do and am I looking at the right problem?

Possible that the water level sensor is faulty as it tends to indicate before the level has reached thereby starting the rinse cycle. Usually this can be due to faulty level settings or fault in the pressure switch as it can be acting too fast. It will be best to clean the inlet valve and check the flow , test the water level sensor and see if this works by blowing into the diaphragm.
There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.
