Within a few minutes of me describing the symptoms and he observing them he diagnosed a split hose on the main wash pump. He knew this without even inspecting the machine because every single person that had this machine had experienced the same problem!. Sure enough when he got the pump out there was a split about 2 " long around the rubber hose (explains why water was going where it shouldn't!).
Furthermore, he claims it's a "known" design fault as the hose is not manufactured to a high enough spec and can't handle the load put on it. He claimed that Whirlpool are fully aware of this problem but are chossing not to do anything about their manufacturing process!
He reckoned the part would be around £150 ( the hose cannot just be detached and replaced because it is an integral part of the pump) but recommended I complain direct to Whirlpool on the grounds of "not fit for purpose".
I will let you know how I get on.

It has information on fixing an oversensitive pressure sensor, which will cause a seemingly unnecessary F4 fault.
