How do I reset my Fisher Washing machine size?

I have replaced the control panel, the motor panel, and the water pump but it still flashes the last wash cycle light and spin cycle light when I press the lid lock and when I press it a second time it turns the machine off.

To set the size switch, turn the power on at the power point and off at the console. Press and hold
WASH TEMPERATURE UP then press POWER. EcoSmart will give 4 short beeps
and the pattern of LEDs will change.
To lock the size into memory.
 Press SPIN SPEED UP, the SPIN HOLD LED is on for 7.5 / 8.0kg (650mm wide).
 Press POWER to confirm the setting and also exit this mode.

SOURCE: Washing Machine stopped through cycle and now will not turn on

Unplug!!! NOW! I drained the water using a common garden hose, fill the hose with water and have some device turning it off like a trigger nozzle on the low end. Detach from the supply and put the supply end in the center of the tub under the softener dispenser. take the trigger nozzle off and watch the water drain without cups and buckets. Then wring out the clothes and put them aside, use the hose trick again for remaining water. Now get under the washer and detach and reattach the brown and white lead input to the rinse cycle motor. She is made in France so be gentle. Plug the machine in and set the machine down and turn it on. Push the >> button until you reach the spin cycle if it starts you have fixed it!! Put the clothes back in open a bottle of wine and try again.

SOURCE: F&P washer lights on and beeps

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

SOURCE: My Aquasmart WL80T65D washing machine,

Hi just read your fault.Now from the information in your posting the lights that are on when the machine is beeping are the 3,4 and 8th lights.Now these lights are in a row of 8 lights and you started from the left.So from left to right the lights that are lit when the machine is beeping are 3,4,and 8.Is this correct?If it is correct then the fault on your machine is called COLD VALVE FAULT.The 3 reasons why this fault occurs is, 1st the wiring to the water valves is faulty,the 2nd is the cold water valve is faulty, or 3rd the control module is faulty.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter so I can help you narrow down which is causing the fault.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

I have a Fisher and Paykel IW811 Intuitive Eco washing machine on which I have recently replaced the pump motor and motor control board. I have reset the size for 650mm.


Switch power off at wall & unplug machine for a couple of minutes. Plug it back in and power on. See if it resets it, If not then you may have a faulty main board or it has been damaged somehow during fitting.

12. (00001100) Phase 1 to 6 - Flood Protection Error
The Motor Controller module has found the water level to be above the flood level
and tried to pump the excess water out. (Under extremely high flow rate conditions
the machine may overfill during the "top-up" routine in agitate.) After pumping for
30 seconds, it has been unable to lower the water level below the flood level. Either
the water valves have stuck on and are letting water in at a flow rate that is higher
than the pump can handle, or the pump is blocked and can't remove the excess
water.
Primary Source: Water Valves.
Action:
If the water valves are on continuously, check that the water valves turn off
mechanically (remove power from machine).
Secondary Source: .Pump system
Action:
Check pump for blockage and drain hose for correct height and kinking
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module. (Display Module Phase 1)
Action:
If water valves are being driven on electrically, replace Motor Controller
module. (Display Module Phase 1)
