Re: HELP!! fisher and paykel intuitive clothes washer:...

Schmotty, An error code "36" means Water leak fault: The Motor Control Module has needed to top up the water level more than 4 times during agitate. This is excessive, as normally only one or two top ups are required to replace the air that has escaped from a full load during agitate. The most likely cause is that the machine is siphoning. The other alternative is that the machine has developed a leak.Thats what you have to do: Primary Source: Pump System. Action 1) Check the height of the drain hose outlet. Minimum 33.46in / 850mm, maximum 47.24in / 1200mm. 2) Check that the hose guide is fitted and check that the hose does not protrude more than .78in / 20mm beyond the guide. Secondary Source: Mechanical. Action: 1) Check the pressure tube connections on the outer basket and Motor Control Module. 2) Check that the drive shaft seal and the pump housing seal have not developed a leak. Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module. Action: Replace Motor Control Module. it

Code 37 -


To my knowledge, Error Code 37 on a Fisher & Paykel machine refers to "drain fault" which could either mean that the drain valve will not open or that the drain pump will not run. The easiest user intervention that could be performed is to check for any blockage/clog at the drain filter, drain pipe, drain pump impeller and drain valve.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Error code 56 is mostly the motor controller, SD11 & SD12 brown boards, 3 x 332k resistors near the small transformer go low & need replacing with a 1 meg Ohm resistor will fix the problem.

Your pressure value switch is malfunction. First thing you can try that is cheap to fix is to try clean the hose that connects to the outer tub. A lot of times there is algae develops after years of washing.

Intuitive eco fisher & paykel washing machine

this is a pretty clear cut fault (66). It is a problem with the pressure transducer (water level). The only cure is to replace the motor controller (which is the lower of the 2 modules in the console)
