Fellow appliance tech here with a problem. Got an SE1000 that will fill up and wash properly when set to small load. When it is set to medium or large, it will overfill. Sounds like a pressure switch or hose, so I cleaned the hose and then replaced the switch. Now, small works fine as before but now medium and large fills up and then shuts off the water valve just below the top level of the tub without overfilling, but it never starts washing. The display just sits there with 10 minutes on it and it never counts down or starts agitating. It only agitates on small. I seem to remember that I think the pressure switch has an overfill setting and it seems like it may be tripping on that, but I can't remember exactly how it is set up internally. I think it's a DC voltage circuit on the pressure switch. Plus, a previous tech took the service manual and it's been 15 years or longer since I last worked on the control circuits in one of these so I have no idea what values of what or where I need to check on the board.
I cleaned the pressure tube and checked connections on both ends of the pressure switch harness and all seem ok. I'm thinking its the board but wanted to see if anybody has any words of wisdom. Also, the speaker emits a soft buzzing like sound when the machine is sitting there after it fills up when it is not washing. It's a very faint sound but I can't recall if that is a normal condition of the board. Any help is appreciated.
Duct tape and bailing wire! And yes, I DO mind if you clean behind that while I have it out!!
