Hi there. FC 49 has a few possiblities
1. the wiring connection to the cold water valve has been disconnected
2.the cold valve has failed, compare resistance with hot valve (they should be the same)
3 the motor controller has failed

I hope this helps

Hi i have a fisher & Paykal IW812 Intuitive Eco washing machine it gets to the rinse drains a little water then nothing happens time still counts down but nothing happening gets to the spin cycle then...

Hi just read your posting.Unless the machine shows an error code the diagnostic mode will not help.Does the machine agitate in the wash cycle?Does the machine drain the water completely?Does the machine spin the clothes dry.Please reply with additional information on the questions I have posted and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Error Code 49 Fisher and Paykel Washing Machine

the code error (49) is telling you that the inlet valve is not working make sure the hoses are not blocked. if you have fitted the valve and is still not working then i would try using the unit on cold if it still does not work then there must be a short in the p.c.b control board.

hope this helps a little more

Error Code 49 on Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco

Fault 49 usually points to the cold inlet valve, either open circuit or not connected correctly. I often come across machines that the motor controller is the problem too.
