f-53 suds error, whirlpool duet steam
« on: July 20, 2014, 05:28:45 PM »

I replaced pressure switch, which I have ran across this before.  But still get an f-53 code, I blew out pressure tube hose, seems clear.  It start code right after start up.  The technical sheet, says that the steam control board has detected an error, or pressure switch.  The owner never uses the stem feature. Anyone ever ran across this?  I was thing that the steam feature control board may ne defective?  Thanks :thanks:

If you still get an F35 after replacing the pressure sensor, and the drain pump is clear, you have a bad main control board. Not the steamer board.
