Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

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.

Nick

Yep it sounds like another electronics panel has failed.
We never had this much trouble in the old days with the old electric timer machines.

Most likely something stuck in the pump, you need to look underneath to get to it, the pump turns anti clockwise to remove it.

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.

We have dirty marks deposited upon completion of washing using a Fisher And paykel washimg machine.Any suggestions how to fix?


Take the inner spin bowl out & scrub it and the outer bowl clean of any soap scrud build up. Stop using softener if you use it as that and too much cold water washing is the main cause of the build up.

Hi, My Fisher & Paykel GW612 washing machine is not spinning, just thumping back & forward, error code 40 on the lights tells Me to carry out a clutch disassembly procedure any help please !!!


Inner spin bowl rises up when water level is high & disengages a clutch gear. When water drains out bowl settles back down and gear engages. Error 40 is saying that the gear has not locked in place and engaged. Remove lid, take out agitator. Under agitator is a cap held in place with 4 screws. Take out screws (do not drop them down through the slots in the bowl) Take off cap & gear underneath will slide up & off the shaft (gear will be tight to pull up due to soap build up.) Inspect gear for damage & clean out any dirt or obstruction. Re assemble and try wash cycle. If you still get the same fault you may have a faulty control board.

I have a 5.5kg Top Load Fisher & Paykel Washing Machine MW512. The clothes seem to come out with alot of dust particles on them. Is there somewhere in the washing machine where it is collecting this...


Hi - are these particles kinda ash grey black in colour? if they are then the bellows have sprung a leak.. unfortunartely the only way is to replace the inner stainless drum.

Inspect the top of the bowl for any signs of structural damage along the grey plastic housing as it contains very fine sand used to counter balance the inner bowl.. on rare ocassions these leaks and give you the particle effect similar to what you've described..

FISHER PAYKEL WASHING MACHINE FAULT CODE 56 DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT IT MEANS


Error code 56 is mostly the motor controller, SD11 & SD12 brown boards, 3 x 332k resistors near the small transformer go low & need replacing with a 1 meg Ohm resistor will fix the problem.
