SOURCE: fault code 37 on an iwl16 machine? can't find a

Code 37 means the pump is not pumping the water out. This may be the result of several things. For instance ask yourself what did I just wash. In our case, we had just attempted to wash a bath mat with crumbling rubber backing. Apparently the pump picked up the little pieces of rubber and they became impacted in the valve underneath. I was a lead aircraft mechanic for United Airlines and have dealt with some of the most sophisticated machines on the planet. I have always been impressed with our Fisher Paykel IWL16, the salesman sold us on the functions of this machine. He also told us about the technology incorporated into it. The elimination of the transmission and other moving parts and that FP had incorporated the philosophy of the minimum moving parts throughout the machine. So, I might have been a little intimidated about working on it because it appears to be very sophisticated. That is until I laid it over on its side and took a look underneath. My mouth dropped open There are 4 moving parts. The motor assembly that is connected to the drum and agitator. The water pump which siphons the water off the bottom of the tank and a 2 way valve that directs the water back into the tub or overboard. There is probably a fill valve in there somewhere that is at the top of the tub. Anyway I decided to try the 2 way valve first. Make sure the you have fully disconnected the machine before trying any of this. First I disconnected the two orange wires off of the 2 way valve and pay attention to which wire goes where (mark one with a marking pen). Then Squeeze the clamps on the three hose connections to the valve and back them up the hoses. Take one more look at how the valve is installed because you could put it in backwards. There is a screw and clamp holding the valve to the bottom of the tub. Remove the screw. Take the hoses off the valve and remove the Valve. Look inside and you will probably see what ever is blocking the Valve. Don't go digging around in there since there are O'ring seals on the flapper door that could get damaged. I used the eraser end of a pencil to clear the junk out of it. I then rinsed the valve out of the rest of the junk (take care not to get the electrical motor and contacts wet. They are covered with a clear plastic cover for a reason. Make sure the ends of the hoses are also clear and then reinstall the valve, hoses (3) and the (3) hoses clamps, Clamp and screw to the whole assembly to the bottom of the tub. Connect the two Orange wires to their respective connections and wha-laa... your done. Flip the washer back up and connect it up to the hoses and plug it in... Run the Machine through the tub cleaning cycle and that should do the trick... If this sounds like it might be difficult, it isn't. Tip over your machine and look at it before you call the serviceman and you might save a couple of hundred. The water pump also looked similarly easy to replace... a new pump is 98 dollars. I love my Fisher Paykel

What does fault code 30 mean on a Fisher and Paykel washing machine Model GWL15/IWL16?

it means that the two electronic boards in your machine are out of sync and need to be reset. just turn the machine off at the wall for a minute and then back on. if this doesn't fix the problem, you will need to replace one of the boards, which one is unknown until you try.

The drain pump on my F&P IWL16 is leaking water. I've had the pump replaced 3 times, during which, the new control board with fuse bypass was installed to prevent the board from blowing again

The pump may not be seating tight against the bucket,
There are four bolts on the gal plate you can tighten to make pump seat tighter on the bucket.

What is error 240 on a Fisher & Paykel IntuitiveEco IWL16 Top Load Washer

240. (11110000) Phase 6 - Hall Out of Order. RPS Fault
Same as previous Hall Error faults, just an extra fault code for Phase
6. See fault codes 130 and 131 for directions.
130. (10000010) Phase 1 to 6 - Single Rotor Position
Sensor Error
The Motor Control Module has found an error in the pattern received
from the Rotor Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad
connection on the harness between the Rotor Position Sensor and the
Motor Control Module, or a faulty Rotor Position Sensor.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: 1. Check for corrosion on the edge connector of
the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor
Control Module connector.
2. Check the contacts on the rotor positional
sensor end of the hall harness to see if any
have been damaged. (Each set of contacts in
the socket has two wipers. If the distance
between these wipers varies between
different contacts, replace the rotor positional
sensor harness.)
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Action: Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S.
tester. Replace if faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.
131. (10000011) Phase 1 to 6 - Repetitive Rotor Position
Sensor Error
This fault is similar to fault number 130 above but differs slightly in that
it is a continuous condition.
