Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
I have a Fisher and Paykel 7.5 KG smart drive washer. It refuses to do anything but beep with 3 lights on. After searching the net the lights that are on; 3, 4 and 8, apparently indicate error 49? I have swapped over the hot and cold water inlets and the wires that were connecting to them as well but this has done nothing. I have removed the top and checked and nothing looks burnt out in the brown box. In the machine the bowl looks fine and I have removed the pump off the underneath to check for blockages. Is there anything else I can check before I have to get someone to come and look at it? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
Your water valves are 24volt,
should read 60 to 64 Ohms on a multimeter.
Your error code 49 is Cold valve faulty in your machine.
1 amp fuse and 1 of the Mosfets on the board are blown.
You need to get a Technician to replace the parts.

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.
