Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
40. (00101000) Phase 1 to 5 - Bowl Dis-Engaged Fault
While carrying out a bowl check,
the Display module has found that the bowl is not engaged
even though the pressure sensor indicates that the bowl is empty.
The Motor Controller continues to check for 2 minutes after which time the display this fault.
If restart is on this fault can take up to 4 hours to diagnose.
The first two areas to check are the clutch and the pressure tube.
If these two appear correct,
then the fault could be in the pressure transducer
in the Motor Controller.
Primary Source - Suds
Action - Too many suds, too much detergent has been used.
Restart product when suds have disappeared,
or select a deep rinse option.
Secondary Source - Mechanical
1. Check that there are no clothes or other foreign objects preventing the clutch from reengaging.
2. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked.

I've had my washer for about 8 years. I experienced the same problem - pump stopped draining the machine. I called F&P and "Patrick" told me that I need to 1) unplug the machine, 2) tilt up the front of the machine, 3) spin the pump (plastic blades) until they turn freely (usually counter clockwise) but I turn it both ways till it turns freely, 4) plug the machine back in and press the buttons to get it back where it was - this has worked every time to get the machine going again. I do a lot of "dog laundry" and I'm sure the rugs/dog hair cause the problem. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: washer will not drain
90% chance that is the pump is pumping water at all, there is blockage between the tub and the drain pump. If there is no water coming out of the drain line. either extremely clogged(odd) or pump motor is bad, and windings are not allowing rotation.

Set the machine on its side and started taking it apart til the problem was obvious. Called Fisher for the parts. A big black seal is out and a bearing above the impellor that cools the motor, we ordered a pump assembly that is on the bottom side of the motor. I am still going to replace the water pump in the drain side, that is a no brainer. Will update on the repair when the parts arrive
