There is a clear plastic hose that runs from the  base of the tub to the top console. It provides air pressure to the water level switch. If you opened the top console to remove the cabinet, the hose may have become dislodged or pinched between the cabinet and rear panel during reassembly. Either way, the pressure switch can't see the water level.

I put a new discharge hose on(a wire coiled one that won't kink) and hooked up
the clear tube to the water level switch that I had neglected to do upon re-assembly. That was it. I'm glad I didn't use the sledge hammer, this was cheaper!!  Thanks again.
