Pressure Sensor
(Dishwasher)
The high pressure sensor is located between the wash motor and lower spray arm. It senses the alteration in water pressure via a membrane which is connected to a micro switch. The thinking behind it is that if the water pressure drops below a certain level then the machine will not be able to wash properly. Therefore if the pressure does drop, a series of rectifying procedures take place with the aim of removing the cause of the reduced water pressure.
Associated Faults
