Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
Hi, I have one of these machines which is playing up. It is failing to fill (Fills intermittently for a minute then stops with error code) then if manually advanced does nothing. The lights which come on for the fault code are one and five, which appears to relate to the motor. I have rotated the agitator and drum by hand, it almost seems to get going sometimes but doesn't. What is my most likely problem and what will it cost to fix it? Thanks!
136. (10001000) Phase 1 to 6 - Motor Stall
The Motor Controller has been unable to start the motor. Possible causes of this
fault are: Faulty motor harness, faulty or jammed motor, seized bearings or seals,
faulty Motor Controller module, faulty Rotor Position Sensor or harness.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Measure / check the motor harness, connectors and motor for discontinuity. This
can be done by taking a resistance measurement between phases of the motor
harness at the Motor Controller module end. Nominal resistance should be around
12.2 ohm for Phase 2,3 & Phase 4. For Phase 5 and 6 onwards the nominal
resistance should be around 32 ohms.
Secondary Source: Motor.
1) Check free rotation of the agitator and basket by rotating by hand. Bearings
and seals may be seized.
2) Check the Rotor Position Sensor and associated harness for water,
mechanical damage or corrosion.
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
If the primary and secondary checks pass inspection then replace the Motor
