Fisher Paykel Washer IWL 12 error codes 130 & 240

Please help. My washer keeps stopping with beeping and the error 130 on screen. I pull the plug and leave off for at least 1 - 2 hours and even over night. Washer works okay for a load then the error code again. Last time it gave error code 240.

What do these mean and what do I have to do to fix it?

Thanks Nancy

    Hi. I have the same problem, but error code 240 hasn't popped up yet. I just switch the machine off and skip ahead to the next cycle and it seems to work. Doesn't fix the problem in the long term though.

Had the same problem cleaned the terminals worked for a bit and came back. The problem is that the little circit board that the plug goes onto that sits between the winding of the motor the copper tracks are so small and they corrode. If you are handly with a solding iron you can replace the tracks with small wire, its mainly on one leg of each of the transistors that are all parrelled up. You can tell because it goes black. Or the easy way just take off the motor unpluging the sense plug then the three main power connectors Yellow, blue and red making sure you mark the correct order to put them back on. The sensor board just pulls out of the windings with a little arrow to but it back in the right place and buy the small board it has the part number on it to find it on the web. I only has three bits on it can't be expensive. Soldered mine up works a treat make sur you clean up the plug aswell, it mainly played up in humid weather.

Our washer did the same but it was after I took the excess drain hose and pushed it into the drain in the wall. I thought it looked "more tidy" In doing so I created a siphon effect. Once I pulled the excess hose back out it was fine.

Fisher paykel gwl10us wont fill

Both of you most likely are getting a "RPS Sensor Fault"
On a GWL10, when the motor rotor position sensor fails, it will act exactly like you describe. Many techs incorrectly replace the machine control or the water inlet valve(s). The RPS sensor is much cheaper. If you consult the tech sheet located under the control panel, you will see the fault code for RPS failure and I would bet the farm that the sequence of LEDs displayed when your washer faults out matches exactly with the RPS fault code.

The RPS sensor for GWL10 and GWL11 models is a part # 420296P and canbe purchased direct from Fisher Paykel Parts:

The procedure to replace it is a little involved but a handy person can do it. It would be best to consult the factory service manual and again, that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct here:

The first thing to do is to check if the water valve is good - probably burnt /stuck open.
