Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15

1 Answer

Fisher & Paykel GW612 beeps before spin.

I suspect I have an error code 42 (not the meaning of life).

The control panel has a group of 5 wash lights and three spin lights.

The pattern is 0x000 0x0 (Where x is on).

The machine got to this point and stopped - switching power off for a while does nothing - when powered on it just goes into the beep cycle. Pushing any button silences the beep but that is all. Tried to hold power down for > 60 seconds but this did not fix it.

If I push the pause button the lights go out - and the lid locked light comes on - but no lid lock noise.

I have a feeling it may be the lid solenoid but can anyone advise?

You have fault code 66 (01000010) Phase 6- Pressure Transducer (Ptx) Error - Frequency >90kHZ. In simple terms you need to replace the main "Motor Control Module" Cheers

F & P Washer GW612 Wont drain fully unless you repeat spin a couple of times and then wont rotate have taken motor to be tested was (low?)Have replaced no improvement First and fourth light flash and...

Kate - firstly the windings of the stator when measured is 32 Ohms, earlier models was a lot lower between B-Y-R.

The washer will pump - rest pump (Cycles) during the spin cycle, if however it overheats then water will not be fully pumped out. A possibilty is the hose into the drain or sink is too high, or blocked somewhere.

In most cases the washer will indicate an error code.

The LEDS 1st & 4th from the right im assumming 10010000 = Fault code 144 - either you have a loose connection under the display/push buttons panel or you have a faulty motor control module

Check the pipes actually work first. Is there a hidden drain filter that is partially blocked? Dissasemble the pump and check it works and the blades inside are clean.
