Hi mate

I had the same problem replaced the board still no go. In my case it turned out to be the drain pump. Nothing wrong with it but a small bit of grit that although difficult to see was impeding the impeller

Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

Fisher and Paykel Washing Machine model mw512


this sounds like the motor controller cant start the motor. I would be looking at the motor controller itself.
when it's filling with water, does the bowl go around slowly?

That is fault code 43
Here is the info for 43
43. (00101011) Phase 1 to 6 - OOB Switch Fault
The Motor Controller module has found that the signal returning from the out of
balance switch indicates that the switch is permanently on or the harness to it is
disconnected.
Primary Source: Mechanical.
Action:
1) Check that the out of balance switch is free to move.
2) Check that no harnesses are blocking switch movement.
3) Check that the switch operates correctly when activated. Replace the switch
if suspect.
4) If the out of balance micro switch shows signs of corrosion, replace the
switch and switch harness, and fit a condensation kit to the console area if
not incorporated in the top deck.
5) Check the level of the machine and also the bias spring.
Secondary Source: Wiring.
Action:
Check the harness to the switch is connected correctly. The terminals should be
connected to the normally closed position. If the harness terminals show signs of
corrosion, then fit a new harness.

Fisher and Paykel MW 512 AU is not running. The first and the last lights(long wash and spin leds) on the displays stays ON in red and keeps on beeping. I appreciate any help in resolving this issue


This(130) is the only code that comes close to that,
There is no code for 129.
130. (10000010) Single Rotor Position Sensor Error
The Motor Control Module has found an error in the pattern received from the Rotor
Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad connection on the harness between
the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor Control Module, or a faulty Rotor Position Sensor.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check for corrosion on the RAST connector of the Rotor Position
Sensor and the Motor Control Module connector.
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Action: Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S. tester. Replace if
faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.
Quaternary Source: Rotor
Action: Ensure the correct rotor for this phase of machine has been fitted

Our FnP GW611 while filling the water stops and starts and after a short time it stops and beeps and the long wash and spin lights come on orange. Any ideas? Thanks


The problem can be determined through the Wash Progress LEDs. The specific lit LEDs combination indicates an specific error code that tells what generally the problem is. But the exact positions of the lit LEDs are necessary in determining the exact code. Refer to the illustration below and post back the code or the exact positions of the lit LEDs. You may Google for the error code once you determine it, like "Fisher and Paykel Fault Code 37".

My fisher & paykel smart drive excellence 7.5 washing machine squirts water in a few times and then stops and beeps and displays 3 lights red orange and (short wash) green as well as low and med speed...


Although slightly unclear these are the only possible error combinations for the leds on the machine as you look at it with red always on the end right hand side.

(11) 1011 (Green - nil - Orange - Red) - pressure problems perhaps a blockage in the tube to bowl.
(13) 1101 (Green-Orange-nil-Red) - pump is faulty
(15) 1111 (all lights on) - display module is faulty

I do not recall that the leds across the spin speed actually means something.

Good luck

Fisher and paykel washing machine GW603 (14 years old) will not power up. When the power is turned on from the power point all the LEDs light up, the machine beeps and then all the LEDs turn off within 1...


What you describe is normal for the power on cycle. If if will not work after this, then you have a problem. If it will not turn on by pressing the power button, try one of the wash type buttons. If it responds to the power button or the wash type buttons and beeps with the start/pause button and the lid is closed, then the lid switch is faulty, if it does not beep and the lid is closed, then the button is faulty and can be replaced on it's own by anyone with some soldering ability.

Press "end of cycle" for 5 seconds or more to clear the screen. Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
