Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Any ideas what to do with this one? "Pressure Tube Fault" it says--I've checked all the tubes I can see under the machine and behind the console (although...which one is the pressure tube?) and nothing seems to be "blocked, crushed or fallen off".
The reason I ran the diagnostic is because when the machine went to drain, the pump would run for about 10 seconds, then shut off. A 'hot burn' smell would occur...never a good thing, I'm guessing! The same thing happens when I run the "drain pump test", so I'm guessing...a pump problem (but how does that correspond with a 'pressure tube fault'?)
I've taken off the pump to check for any junk blockages in the tubes...nada. Thus...I'm hitting my (admittedly short) wall of knowledge.
Any ideas out there for me before I spring for a repair job? If a new part is needed, might it be something I can install myself?
I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere on this site...I've looked through the forum and can't find mention of this code.

Code 40 - is Bowl Fault
The electronics has sensed that the bowl is not engaged.
Check the following - Mechanical.
1. Check that there are no foreign objects causing the bowl to malfunction. As it fills up the inner bowl will disengage from the outer bowl. It will sort of freewheel as so to speak.
2. If empty of water, carry out a clutch disassembly procedure and check spline drive. - removed center of agitator, unscrew middle of the agitator a screw, remove the screws on the top pf the inner bowl to separate, will need to remove the top though to do this, usally two rubber bungs on the front screws under and the rear is normally plastic clipped/lock setup.
3. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked. - check the clear tube by blwing into the bowl as you remove the top electronics cover (2) screws top rear - do not blow into transducer on the controller module.
Electronics - if all else fails - Replace Motor Control Module.
