Have a three year old F&P Smartdrive 5.5 Australian model. Recently replaced the OOB sensor as it was corroded, now it looks like there is a problem with the water level sensor, but i don't know what to check. The machine completed its wash cycle, then during the rinse cycle just kept filling up and overflowed before eventually stopping in fault state. Turning off and back on, then running a rinse cycle didn't work, the pump ran to drain the drum, but the machine never started the rinse cycle.

Diagnostic codes when the drum is empty are ..

0 - 0000 0000
1 - 0000 0000
2 - 0000 0000
3 - 0000 0000
4 - 0000 0100
5 - 1101 1110
6 - 0000 0011
7 - 0000 0111
8 - 0000 0000
9 - 1101 1110
10 - 0000 0011
11 - 1111 1111
12 - 0000 0000
13 - 0011 0100
14 - 0010 1101
15 - 0100 0111

After leaving the power off and trying another wash cycle, the drum filled to the top even with water level set to medium. At this point i stopped the machine, and checked the diagnostics again. Value 11 changed to 1100 1011, plus I also got 4 additional values :

0000 0000
0000 0010
0000 0000
0000 0000

The OOB and lid switch are fine, the pump is working fine, and I have removed the clear plastic pipe which goes from the control board to the drum at both ends and re-attached. I did blow down the pipe from the control board end and there was little resistance - I was able to blow fairly easily - is this normal?

Any ideas would be great

Thanks

Nick
