There is a valve for the door lock if this goes it thinks the door is open and shuts down thinking the door has been opened if the feed pipe become blocked the water pressure sends air pressure to the switch when water is added. spin/drain setting it don't use this sensor switch, but on filling up it will. its usual down to a blocked pipe , or a leak in the line. sometimes it can be the switch, the pipe is located at the bottom around 2 inches from the bottom and the feed wire goes to a sensor , take the pipe off and blow down it best to have some water in the bottom of the drum, so suck and blow on the pipe to loosen anything blocking the pipe. switch don't blow or suck on this as it can damage the sensor. if the sensor is at fault you can only replace it as the valve inside for the switch if you use anything it will pierce the valve , hope this helps you.
