Having a few problems with the old girl today - and even worse, my F&P washing machine is giving me grief as well!

Had an inital problem where the machine wouldn't drain. After reading the forums, I tried freeing up the impeller blades which cured that problem. However, I am now in the situation where the machine is overfilling and causing minor floods. I suspect that this might have something to do with me having a little sneaky peak under the control panel earlier and undoing the plastic pressure tube. This tube was reconncted but I am wondering if I have screwed up the pressure settings and this is why the machine is overfilling?

Any thoughts?

Yep you got it in one...............ya stuffed up the system when you disconnected the pressure tube. Good news is its a simple fix. Make sure the machine is empty of water, disconnect the tube at the console again and blow through it. You will clear any water that has got into the tube. Refit it and test the levels again. Make sure when you test it you have selected a level. Don't use the auto-level as this does not rely on the pressure transducer.

Good luck

Remember the simple things.
