I had same problem and followed starcee's advice on howtomendit.com

I unscrewed top cover, then unscrewed and lifted up the grey computer cover. The balance switch is underneath on the right with a yellow and white wire coming off.

I removed switch from clip and then removed the wires/clips from contacts. There was definitely corrosion on the contacts. I soaked switch overnight in vinegar. Then rinsed with water. Then dried switch out for day.

Put it all back together and am now on second load of washing.

Error 43 ( lights 3,5,7 & 8 and some beeping)

(Make sure all power is unplugged)
I popped off the two screws holding down the controls. Then undid the screw holding down the grey box with the main control board. Under this in the right hand corner is the out of balance switch. The small microswitch can be eased out.This is part# 30 in the manual (see link below). My one had corrosion and the switch was gummy.

I then bypassed switched to check, all good. Now I need to fix switch (vinegar method) or buy new....around $30.00

Thanks for the posts

Code 43 is an out of balance switch problem, i found mine was just sticking, if you pull it out (under the electronic control unit, under the top panel) you may be able to find out if its stuck or if it needs a new one, you could possibly find one from another model. hope this helps

The vinegar solution works! Even though I was sure my machine was really out of balance due to washing one brand new towel in it, I tried this trick and now my machine works perfectly. I've done three loads since then.

A great way I found to dry the switch is to seal it in an airtight container with a lot of those silica dessicant sachets you get in bottles of pills or new bags.

Intuitive Iw509nw fault code 9 what's it mean


the size of the machine needs to be set. if you recently replaced a board the first thing you need to do is 'size set' the machine and instructions should come with the board. holding wash temp up/down and pressing power should get you into the menu, though it's too much to explain here.

What is code 43


Code 43 is Out Of Balance fault. Most probably because the OOB switch has failed (not uncommon) or the trigger arm has become jammed over the bowl.
The OOB mechanism is under the main motor controller module.
To access the controller and the OOB switch you have to remove the 2 screws at the rear of the facia. Fold the display panel forward and remove the larger screw which secures the controller. At this point you may be able to fold the controller to the rear without removing many (or any) of the connecting wires. This will expose the OOB switch. These switch contacts can become oxidised. If the switch won't 'click' it should be replaced. Test switch continuity with a multitester.
Make sure the replacement switch has the same function mode as the one you remove. (Some switch to 'ON' and some to 'OFF' )
I have described the most common cure for a code 43, but remember there are other reasons for the fault to be detected..
Good luck...Nomess

Washing machine stopped filling up and an error 43 or 43 came up on screen


Hi just read your posting.Now Error code 43 means you have an OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH FAULT.The switch is located under the control module which is located under the top panel.Would you like me to guide you throe the testing and possible replacement of the Switch?The secondary source of this error code is your Motor Controller.But we must test the switch 1st as the switch is the most likely component that is faulty.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch.It would make it easier to test the switch with the tester but there are ways around this.Please reply for further assistance and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

FP fault 43


Hi,

code 43 is an out of balance switch problem.Once replaced, would fix the issue.

One trick that might work ;-

I unscrewed top cover, then unscrewed and lifted up the grey computer cover. The balance switch is underneath on the right with a yellow and white wire coming off.

I removed switch from clip and then removed the wires/clips from contacts. There was definitely corrosion on the contacts. I soaked switch overnight in vinegar. Then rinsed with water. Then dried switch out for day.

Put it all back together and am now on second load of washing.

Thanks.

Code 49 and Manual Book


Fault 49 usually points to the cold inlet valve. I have come across many with this fault that the valve tests ok and it needs the motor controller replaced.
