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.

Hi just read your posting.The fault on your machine is called Single Rotor Position Sensor Error.The rotor sensor is attached to your motor which is located underneath the machine.Now the Error Code will come up on your machine because 1--The wiring to the Rotor Sensor is faulty. 2-- The rotor sensor itself is faulty or 3--- The motor controller, 'which is located under the top panel is faulty.Unfortunately to test the rotor sensor you need an RPS tester .This device will also check the wiring to the rotor sensor.If you have an electrical test meter I can guide you throe the testing of the wires to the rotor sensor but without the RPS tester you cant accurately test the rotor sensor.Some service techs I know just change the rotor sensor to see if that rectifies the fault but in your case you dont have a rotor sensor so even if you do purchase one and change it, the fault could be your Motor Controller.My best advice to you would be to borrow an electrical test meter if you do not have one and reply back and I can help you eliminate the Wiring as the cause of the fault,and then contact a service tech to find out if the fault is with the Rotor Sensor or the Motor Controller.But if the fault is with the wiring then I can guide you throe step by step to repair it.I hope this helps and please reply on how you got on or if you need further assistance.Good luck.

How do you resolve Fisher Paykel fault code 249


From Service Manual for 249 error

249. (11111001) SmartPump Timeout Fault (No change in the water level)
While draining, the water level reading from the pressure sensor has not changed for 3 minutes.
This fault will generally be caused by a problem in the pump system, from either a blockage, or restriction in the pump system. This fault will also flag if the machine is 'By-Passing'.
Primary Source: Pump System
Action: 1) Check that the drain hose has not been kinked.
2) Check the length of the drain hose. A 1-meter extension
hose of the same diameter fitted to the existing drain hose is
the maximum allowable length.
3) Check that the machine is not pumping to a head that
exceeds the pumps limits (2.4metres is the maximum head
height).
4) Remove the inner bowl and check that the pump hood hasn't
been fitted around the wrong way.
5) Check for lint streaming from the pump hood that may be
blocking the pump cap inlet.
6) Remove the pump hood and cap, check for lint, grit and
debris.
7) Check for free movement of the impeller and that the impeller
hasn't come off the rotor.
8) Check for free movement of the flapper (replace if broken or
damaged).
9) Check for lint and foreign object in the ports of the pump
housing.

I didn't know the codes went this high! it will be a motor controller fault I would suggest, as all other faults above 140 are motor controller.

refer to the AquaSmart service manual.
Secondary Source: Pump System.
Action: Follow procedures as for Fault Code 249.

I have a fisher & paykel aqua smart WL26CW1. I just replaced the module. I am now getting an error code of 9. What does that mean?


Hi dear.That's related to size error.When you replace the motor control module you need to set the machine wash capacity like:5Kg or 7.5Kg.To do that please follow the steps: Phase 1 to 6 Size Switch Error
The Display size switch setting does not match that stored in the memory.IW machines, Phase 5 and 6
To access Size Setting Mode. Push and hold the Fabric care button and then press the Power button to enter Size Setting mode. Select the correct size on the display by pushing the White button next to the correct size (phase 5) or using the Adjust button to highlight the right size (phase 6). Size setting is then achieved by pressing the Power button. Powering off will set the size into the memory. Check the size is set before starting a cycle.
I hope that helps.Thanks.
