Hi,

I just returned home from vacation to find washer won't start, lights up , door locks , start light flashes but machine seems to time out. I also would add that I recently replaced main control board drain pump and door switch, because of issue with no spin cycle. this was 2 weeks ago and have used the machine at least a dozen times since repair.

Check the air chamber on the right side, funny looking gizmo  with a tube running up to the pressure switch............Look for a worn spot on the pressure hose or a chewed area on the pressure hose ( rodent )..........You can test the pressure switch by removing the hose from the pressure switch and attaching another hose ...at the start of a  cycle  while it is filling,  blow gently into the hose you just installed onto the pressure switch..........What happens????........

I did inspect the parts and hose to pressure switch. everything looked good. I then tried blowing into switch after starting machine . I could hear switch make contact but still no water and machine faults out.
