Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
Have removed cover and looked at valves for fault code 49. Looks brand new in there. Cannot enter diagnostic mode. Machine entered fault code 49 at time of incident and have not been able to reprogram because cannot enter diagnostic mode.

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.

Hi just read your posting.Now from the information in your posting the lights that are lit,starting from left to right are the 3rd, the 6th and the 8th,is this correct.If it is correct then the fault on machine is called PUMP BLOCK ERROR.Now 1st thing to do is to bail some of the water by hand with a small pot or bucket, enough to lean the machine back so you can look under the machine.When you are able to look under the machine look to the front right and you should see a black fan.This is your pump.Turn the fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to loosen the pump.The fan should turn freely.Then put the machine back upright and select a spin cycle.The machine should start draining.Please reply back on how you went or if you have the newer style of pump or if the machine stills does not drain.

The 3 LEDs (3,4, and 8 from left to right) lit indicates fault code 49 which means the motor controller module detected a fault in the cold water proportional valve. Raise the console up and make sure the wire connection between the cold water proportional valve is intact. Reseat the connection several times to ensure a snug fit connection. Replace the valve if the connection is intact and snug fit.

That's a water valve fault. Check and make sure that you have plugged the hot and cold water valve connectors from the controller all the way in tight on the water valves. Sometimes people break off the little lock tabs on the valves when installing a control and this will cause a poor connection.
