Fisher Error Codes lights 5 & 8

We bought the control panel & top from an operational machine identical to ours (their shaft had seized). We replaced it on our faulty machine. Now lights 5 & 8 are permanently up. Any suggestions? Have tried holding down power button for 60sec.

SOURCE: push start button on control panel - machine does not start

only 2 things can cause this.
1 the control is set to lock out mode. just hold the lock button for 5 seconds and it should go back to normal mode.
or 2 the controls user interface has an internal failure. its the part that has the switches and tells the computer what to do. either way call whirlpool and see if its still covered by their warranty.
of yeah and the 3rd thing is you have no power to unit. make sure the outlet is good by trying something else in the same outlet, like a light or hairdryer.

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

Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

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.

Nick

My Fisher and Paykel washing machine's lights are flashing. Fault code 65. When I opened the control panel, there was water in there. What do I do?


Grabbing the agitator would not cause error 65. Yes that error can only be solved by replacing the control module. Water can only have come from the filling valves & chamber on the left hand side inside the panel. Completely dry all areas inside the panel, especially around the filling valves & chamber. Put machine on wash cycle & start. While filling, have the control panel open & watch for any water appearing from anywhere. Fix the leak then replace the control board.

Need to know the error code to help you. When it beeps, take note of the top row of lights & count from right to left. Tell me exactly which lights are on & which are off. Also, tell me if any other lights are blinking. The only thing the tiler would of disconnected are the inlet water hoses. Check that the hose from the cold tap is on the cold inlet & hot tap is on the hot inlet. Marked C & H on back of panel.

Fisher and paykel led lights 1 and 5 washing machine error


That is fault code 136
136. (10001000) Motor Stall
The Motor Control Module has been unable to start the motor. Possible causes of this fault
are: Faulty motor harness, faulty or jammed motor, seized bearings or seals, faulty Motor
Control Module, faulty Rotor Position Sensor or harness.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Measure/check the motor harness, connectors and motor for
discontinuity. This can be done by taking a resistance measurement
between phases of the motor harness at the Motor Control Module
end. Nominal resistance should be around 32 Ohms.
Secondary Source: Motor.
Action: 1) Check free rotation of the agitator and basket by rotating by hand.
Bearings and seals may be seized.
2) Check the Rotor Position Sensor and associated harness for
water, mechanical damage or corrosion.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: If the primary and secondary checks pass inspection, then replace
the Motor Control Module.

Machine goes through normal wash until final spin and then beeps error lights 1 and 7


This is the diagnostic code menu for the fisher and paykel if you were to scroll down to number 130 it would tell you that the error message that you are receiving is due to the rps sensor in the unit and the solution would be to check your rps sensor with an rps sensor and replace if necessary. The rps sensor is the control located near the stator that controls the stator speed in the unit otherwise known as the motor and your motor speed. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks again and here is the link to the codes http://www.docstoc.com/docs/25379715/Fisher-_-Paykel-Washer-Diagnostic-Fault-Codes I await your reply if you have any further questions and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again Rick

Top loader.recently had sesor replaced after machine went off balance. has gone off balance again, now water pumps for a second then stops and sarts then light sequence comes on.


David, exactly what combination of lights come on, top row. There are 8 leds 5 green, 2 orange, 1 red. Show the code with an X for led on & 0 for light off. EG:
0000X00X
This will indicate F9, sizing issue. (Code is actually read Right - L)
Also is model # GW711 What is product code. Both available on back panel or behind control panel.
