Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer
When I was trying to use the washing mchine today, it wouldnt start its cycle. When I first got it, it worked fine. Then it had to go into storage for 3 months. When i plugged it back in it wouldnt work full stop, no lights, no beeps, no nothing. I replaced the top bit with the lights and the computer part of it and it worked fine, except sometimes it would work with the lid open through the whole cycle. Now it wont work at all. It turns on and the lights come on and it beeps and everything but when I press start nothing happens - even if it is advanced forward to the spin or wash part of the cycle it just doesnt move. I suspect perhaps there is a sensor connected to the lid so it wont go when the lid is open? But i have absolutly no idea what to do. Any ideas?? It is a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 053. Well, that's what it says on the top of it.
The problem is definitely in the lid switch. Your machine has a reed switch which is located under the hob on the right side of the tub. There is a magnet built into the lid which activates the reed switch when the lid is closed. You will need to replace the reed switch and harness.
