Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi - I have a Fisher & Paykel GW512 washing machine. it keeps giving an error showing these light on the cycle progress 01000010 (code 66)? I pulled the top off and if I disconnect the display module from the motor control module and then put it back together I will run again but for maybe only one complete cycle before the same error returns, idea or solutions?

I can't remember what fault 66 is off hand, but I can check tomorrow.
fault 130 (which has one extra 0) is a common fault, and will do what you say. it is an intermittant RPS fault. RPS is a small chip on the side of the motor, and they are a little touchy at times. easy enough to replace by removing motor cover, loosening the motor and removing the RPS from it's harness.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel washer GW712 won't spin

There is an issue with your drainage area. Best to remove the pump and check for the obstruction in the line or at the impellar.(If the water is not completely drained, the pressure switch wont send a low level to the timer to allow a spin).

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

Hi my fisher and paykel washing machine is stuck up. When i turn it on it will stay on this mode-hold and the buttons won't work and won't even start. Can you help me solve this problem? Thanks

This is an old post I know

The wash progress lights are giving an error code. With zero meaning OFF and 1 meaning ON your picture shows an error code of 01000000
Switch machine off at the wall for a good 5 minutes. Turn on again and see if the same error again I am afraid this is what the service manual says::

64. (01000000) - Pressure Transducer Error - Frequency < 66 kHz
The Motor Control Module has received signals from the water level
sensor (Ptx) below normal frequency values.
Cause: Faulty Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.

The motor control module is found under the buttons panel. Undo the 2 screws at the back behind the buttons and the controller is underneath. You may have to pull the main lid off first to get the buttons panel off. Motor Controllers are not cheap sorry. They can be found on Ebay
MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT MOTOR CONTROLLER PART NUMBER ON THE STICKER. They may look the same but they are all different.
Unplugging the controller may seem daunting but count how many things you unplug and then you know how many to put back on. The plugs can only fit in their own sockets so you can not mix them up.
Hope this is of some help
Good luck

Your rotor position sensor could be faulty,
your error code should be on the wash cycle progress lights.
