Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine not turning on at all. power point is active [verified with dryer].

No fault occurred during its last wash cycle. Next morning went to put a load on and found that it would not turn on.. So its seems the washing machine is broken! this i know.. Im just wondering if this is likely to be a repairable problem [and worth repairing i.e. cost of electronics?motherboard? something?] or not basically. Any feedback much appreciated.

Without seeing the machine it would be impossible to say, but if you're handy you could try to trace to see if power is getting to the timer whether it be mechanical or electronic. On some mechanical timers there are contacts which are engaged when the control knob is pulled out. Bending these very carefully can sometimes restore machine operation. I'm afraid I don't know much about electronic timers.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash - Wash Cycle not holding water

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

SOURCE: LE fault code for LG WD-1019bd washer

Usually it is the stator at fault with an LE error. I would make sure the cable between the stators windings and hall sensor are ok back to the main control board also give the wires a good tug sometimes the copper breaks inside the wiring insulation at the white connection blocks. Check to make sure theres nothing got trapped inbetween the drum and tub this can lock the drum up and give the fault. After checking all the above i would think it would either be a faulty stator or the main control board has failed. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin

Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.

Possible that the main power has failed , the power supply of the unit had packed up or there is a serious fault in the controller unit. You need to open the control panel unit to trace this case specially using a multimeter, check for the AC power to the unit and check for the DC to the circuit. If not the panel is a suspect.

Washer won't drain


DIAGNOSTIC MODE
To enter diagnostic mode follow the steps below.
1. Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine.
2. Press and hold WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN and then press POWER until the
machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up.
3. Release the buttons after the beeps as the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.
4.1 Last Fault Data
When in diagnostic mode the last fault can be found by pressing the SPIN SPEED UP or DOWN
buttons until the HOLD and SLOW lights are illuminated. Binary can then be read from the wash
progress lights.
4.2 Drain Pump Test
MW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press SMART TOUCH CYCLES to activate the drain pump. To
deactivate the pump, press SMART TOUCH CYCLES again.
GW Washer
When in diagnostic mode press REGULAR to activate the drain pump. To deactivate the pump,
press REGULAR again.

4.3 Water Valve Test
The water valves can be activated in diagnostic mode by pushing WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING UP to activate the Hot Valve and WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN to activate
the Cold valve as with previous models.
Pressing each button once will activate the valve. To de-activate valve press the same button
again. This is also good to use when installing machines as it takes the shock out of the fittings
and seals and allows checking for leaks on the inlet hoses, both machine end and tap or super-tub
end.
Caution: Do not leave the machine unattended when either or both valves are operating

If the power is not reaching the m/c., switch off plug outlet remove the plug.

DISHWASHER


faults not related i would think is there a low humming noise when supposed to be wsahing? if so this is the motor capacitor faulty in all probability. this is a cheap part and easy to replace. otherwise, check if power to pump. if no power then points to a module fault. if there is power, points to a motor fault
