Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher & Paykel Washer
Worked fine then started beeping when in SPIN
- unplugged and reconnected after a while (twice) as recommended in troubleshooting
guide of booklet. No error code will show. Will start SPIN with the usual DRAIN but the water
drains back into the tub. I was able to confirm that the drum is attached, rigged container inside drum to drain most of remaining water and now it progresses with SPIN but since the water drains into the tub it won't complete. I believe it is a plugged up drain, not sure how to get to that part best.
Is there a way to get a schematic for this type of washer since it is a belt-free design not your usual standard machine?
Hi. I work on these machines every day.
The problem with your model 10 is that the diverter valve is not in the DRAIN position, so when the pump runs, it is sending the water right back into the tub. The issue is one of two things-
Either the tab on the diverter valve has physically broken off and the machine needs a new diverter valve, or there is a short in the machine's controller and it is sending a constant signal to that valve, causing it to never be in the DRAIN position. When the diverter is NOT energized, the flap is at rest and the water will go out the drain. When the valve IS energized, the water is supposed to go thru the recirculation hose.
You want to check that diverter valve first and formost. That's going to tell you what you need to know. Look closely at it and you'll see if the little tab that goes from the wax motor to the flapper lever is broken off. The diverter valve is located down underneath the tub in the right rear, it has three hoses attached to it and two wires. It's grey in color and the little wax motor is brown.
