Hi,

The fuse blowing is significant. If you could possible post back the rating of the fuse, then possibly we can narrow down the suspects. The idea being, it the Amps of the fuse is rated high, then It signifies that there is a short in the circuitry big enough to draw excessive current such as the electrical components and blow that fuse. If however the fuse rating is rather low, then the short is on a lower load such as the electronics.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on the rating of the fuse that blows, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Check for short circuit like bridging foriegn metals to the other parts,or faulty wirings.Check the diode for short circuit in the power supply this is the common caused of short circuit and also check the capacitor for short circuit also.

hope it may may help you ;

Any obvious burnt components and the round can type capacitors .... do any feel rounded on the top... make sure the power is OFF first

Hi Norm33,

The often found cause of this problem is the door interlock. There is a safety feature to stop any operation while the door is open. If this becomes faulty, the washer may still not work even when the door is closed. Check that when closing the door, the catch is activating the switch. To test the switch, first make sure the WASHER IS NOT PLUGGED IN, then use an electrician's meter to test the resistance across the switch. You should put the two electrodes on the contacts at the back of the switch. When the door is closed, the resistance reading should read a very low value.

Another possible cause for this is a fault on the timer. You should inspect the connecting wires for any sign of burnt plastic or charring on the spade connectors. You will need to replace the timer if this is the problem. Please dont forget to rank me.

Regards
ELLIN

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

Most of the faults are pump related.
check the Ohms reading on pump should be 33- 35
If readings are less change your pump.

I have a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 9 - 6.5kg top load washing machine...model# GW609AU. Will not fill at startup, only short bursts, then shuts down. Can this model be reset?


Can only be reset by unplugging... Sounds like a bad controller or poor connection. Try different water temps, it same problem will need to call a Technician. F/P can tell you who is authorized to fix it. 888.936.7872
