Error Code 49 on Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco

I have googled error 49 and it said it could be the hot or cold water valve. The hot water valve was swollen so I replaced it and my washing machine still comes up with the same error code.

Is there anything else I can do to fix the problem and I do not have an instruction manual either?

Thanks

    i have the same problem now. the original problem started with the main board buggered and machine not turning on. once i replaced the main board and set it up, the machine run sweet for two washes then went out on a fault 49 and i have not been able to get around this. the coils tested up to the correct resistance so i swapped them to see if the fault number changed...and it did not so i am now wondering if there is a way to clear all faults and start from scratch. does any one know how to clear faults on a IW712 Fisher Paylel ???

Fault 49 usually points to the cold inlet valve, either open circuit or not connected correctly. I often come across machines that the motor controller is the problem too.

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.

Intuitive Eco - code 49. What does that mean?


http://ths.gardenweb.com/discussions/2437709/fisher-and-paykel-wl26cw1-error-code-49

Here is a long quote from a repair man:

If the valve solenoids are reading 62 OHMS, and the contacts/connection at the main controller are in fact good, then all it can be after that is a faulty main controller Im afraid..

Here is the fault code and diagnosis for fault code 49, from the service manual, which also has a process of elimination,,

49. (00110001) Phase 2 to 6 - Cold Valve Faulty
The Motor Controller module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic
circuit that indicates the cold valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve
harness has not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit. See fault 48
for service procedure.

Now we go to fault code 48*

48. (00110000) Phase 2 to 6 - Hot and Cold Valve Faulty
The Motor Controller module has measured voltages from the valve diagnostic
circuit that indicate both the hot and cold valves are faulty. The most likely cause is
that the valve harnesses have not been connected correctly or the valve is open
circuit.

Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves or the pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action:
Check the valve coils are not faulty (open circuit).
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Action: Replace the Motor Controller module.

If all other avenues have failed, then it is the motor controller unfortunately**

Error Code 49 Fisher and Paykel Washing Machine


the code error (49) is telling you that the inlet valve is not working make sure the hoses are not blocked. if you have fitted the valve and is still not working then i would try using the unit on cold if it still does not work then there must be a short in the p.c.b control board.

hope this helps a little more

Intuitive Eco 701 ... error code 50. I'm sure it's to do with the fill solenoids. It is filling very slowly.


Yes. Whichever is filling slow. Hot or cold. It is a code for the fill valve. Just replaced the cold fill valve on my unit which seems to be the one that most commonly goes out. Easy repair. 2 screws and 1 Plug...If you unscrew the top by taking out two phillips screws in the back, you will find some paperwork about trouble codes, repairs etc...Right next to the fill valves.

Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco code 49....


code 49 is a faulty cold water valve fault code. If you replaced both the valves, the wires and plugs to them are ok and it's still not working then you need to replace the Main Motor Controller module, there's no way to reset this fault sorry.

PLEASE "rate my solution" thank you.
