SOURCE: Washer won't start. Power is on, pressed

Hi - if that red led light comes on as you press start - then the display module is faulty - however it's not always the case - often its the motor controller module thats faulty..

Your call - display module first and hope it works or controller.

The manufacturers recommended procedure is to replace the display module (primary) if it still doesnt work then replace the control module (secondary).

Cheers

Hello Scott, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a GW712 Fisher & Paykel washer where "after filling, the hot and cold water temp lights flash", correct ?

According to Fisher & Paykel this can mean one of these scenarios is at the root of the error...

1) The taps have not been turned on.

2) Inlet hose screens may be blocked.

3) The hoses may be kinked.

4) The drain hose is too low or the drain hose is pushed into the standpipe too far and the water is siphoning out of the machine.

5) The flow rate of the supply water is too slow.



To address this, and as long as water is indeed entering the unit here`s what I find is most common (when dealing with the symptom you`ve describe) the hose screens at the water valve have become obstructed or partially at least, thus you still get through a cycle...even if having to attempt twice or up until the rinse when it needs "cold' water again...I would focus on the cold water line.

In my experience the other scenarios are less likely as well as more obvious when they occur. I would suggest you turn the water off and check and clean the screens at either end of the hoses (if applicable to your hoses...some only have screens in the valve) as shown in this example...

Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there, but please let me know. Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry . Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

The "clean" light blinks


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

How to set time for aquastar N0 4095


When looking at the face, you have 4 pushers. Top left is for regatta function countdown. Top right is regatta function start-stop-reset. Bottom left is Hours-Minutes and Nite Lite. Bottom right is regatta function "catch up". Assuming that you want to set Hours and Minutes, press and hold the bottom left for 3 seconds...Hours will start blinking, press the pusher successively until the desired hour is reached. Then wait until it stops blinking. To set minutes, press and hold for 3 seconds, the hours will again begin to blink, then release and re-press for an additional 3 seconds and the minutes will blink, Then press successively until desired minutes have been reached. Stop pressing and wait until the blinking has stopped. Once it has stopped blinking your time has been successfully registered. Good Luck. Hope this helps!

Stopped working during a wash


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Machine won't start and the START light keeps blinking


A flashing start button shows that the filter is dirty. Remove the filter assembly from the machine. The "tube" can be split into 2 sections fairly simply - do so, and wash each piece under the tap to clean it.
Once the assembly is cleaned properly, select the program that you desire, and press and HOLD the start button for 2 seconds. The wash cycle should begin.
