Fisher Paykel Smartdrive MW058K diagnostic mode query

I have learned how to test the valves and water pump in diag. mode.

Is there a method of forcing the spin cycle in this mode? Even it means standing by the machine for spin duration.

All wash cycles have completed OK then error 37 x'25' (00100101). Got this far with a scavenged pressure transducer. Do not wish to address transducer issues to solve this problem.

    My clothes are clean but wet. Everything but the pressure transducer is working perfectly. I just want to know how to force the actual spin!!! I assume there is a diagnostic facility, possibly unpublished, that does this.

  • goldentotara May 28, 2009

    I will repeat a simple technical question. In diagnostic mode, for example, user can operate/test pumps and valves by manual control. So can the spin be operated/tested also?

  • goldentotara May 28, 2009

    Diagnostic level 4 let me test lid, balance, pump, valves etc. No problem.

    Diagnostic level 11 shows current motor speed. This implies hidden software window to force spin to occur. If I can't find it i will have to buy a new board or keep swapping transducers until I get lucky.

    I will close the problem. But someone out there probably knows the answer!

Hi

I hope you are following this diagnostic procedure--
Hold "Wash Temp Down", then press "Power". Wait for the two short "beeps". Toggle the "Spin" buttons until "Hold" and "Slow Spin" lamps are lit. You are in Diagnostic mode and diagnostic lights will light up. Write down the LED's which are lit across the top row of progress LED's(start at the right and note which lamps are lit.)
Unfortunately the spin teset is not covered under the diagnostic mode. It can only be tested physically. However, i'll suggest you to check the lid lock assembly which is the usual problem with F&P wasing machines. The lid lock assembly has a solenoid which when dis-engaged doesn't let the spin cycle to start as the machine thinks the lid is open. Lubricting the solenoid can help. You can check out the lid lock assembly by clicking on the link below--

Hi,

Place the machine into diagnostic mode so you can read the bibary fault code. To enter diagnostic mode:

1. Have the machine plugged in and turn it off at the control panel.


2. Perss and hold the WASH TEMP DOWN the press the POWER button. The machine will give two short beeps.

3. Using the SPIN SPEED UP or the SPIN SPEED DOWN buttons you can get different information.

When you press the SPIN SPEED UP button until the HOLD and SLOW SPIN LED's are on, the WASH PROGRESS LED's will display the fault code. Interpret them using the tech sheet inside the control panel -- pray to pot-bellied, one-eyed, fish-smelly Buddha that you repairguy didn't "borrow" it.

Sounds like you you probably have a bad diverter valve.

fault code is #37, blocked pump error
Thank You

Fisher and paykel intuitive washer what is a code 50 please


50. (00110010) Phase 2 to 5 - Hot Valve Fault
The Motor Controller has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that indicates
that the hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not been
connected correctly.
Primary Source - Wiring
Action - Check valve harnesses are correctly fastened to valves.
Secondary Source - Water Valves
Action - Check valve coils are not faulty ( open circuit ). If either of these valves are low
impedance it is likely that the Motor Control output has also failed, in which case replace Motor
Controller and valve(s).
NB. Phase 5 can give fault code 50 when Smartdrive powers off while spinning. In this case
there will be no fault.
