That error code lights along the top should be 00101011 (OFF OFF ON OFF ON OFF ON ON)



The OUT OF BALANCE (OOB) switch either has a fault or is not connected. Push the whole bowl towards the back right of the machine, listen carefully and you should hear a small click, then another small click when you release it.

If you DON\'T hear a click - look for a plastic lever hanging down behind the bowl at the back right. Sometimes they can flip over to the top and need bending back down into position. You will need to put your head right down into the machine to see the lever



If you DO hear a click - the switch maybe rusty and needs replacing. ......Unplug the machine and lift the lid and pull it straight up and it will lift off

Undo the two screws at the back of the machine and lift off the buttons panel. Unplug all the plugs on the brown control module (This may seem daunting but all plugs are different sizes and can only go back into where they came from) It is best to count every plug or tube you pull out and then you will know how many to put back on

Pull off the clear tube on the right and pull out the brown control module. The switch is on the right underneath and should have black and red wires going to it. Check the wires are connected, if they are get somebody to test the switch with a multimeter when you push the bowl backwards.

If it is faulty they can be purchased at any electronic shop such as Dick Smiths



IT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO PUSH THE CLEAR TUBE BACK ON WHEN YOU PUT IT BACK TOGETHER OTHERWISE THE MACHINE WILL OVERFLOW AND FLOOD YOUR LAUNDRY



That\'s the best I can suggest

Good luck

Error Code 43 on Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco Model IW810AU is 'Out-Of-Balance' (OOB) switch fail.
The terminals or internal contacts are probably corroded.
It is a standard microswitch, with these specs: 100mA, 'Normally Closed' contacts.
If you can, get a waterproof one, and solder the wires to it, doing away with the plug(s).

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!

If none of these tasks remedy the problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OF

I had the same problem, code 43 is an out of balance switch problem, i found mine was just sticky, if you pull it out (under the electronic control unit, under the top panel) you may be able to find out if its stuck or if it needs a new one, you could possibly find one from another model. hope this helps

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer is squealing

You need to pull out the washer, TURN OFF THE WATER, then take the water hoses off the back of the washer. Check the screens inside the water inlets for debris. If that doesn't fix the problem you may need to ask fisher paykel if it's safe to put a chemical like limeaway in those holes to remove hard water deposits that have built up inside the valves.

Hi - this is a strange one - I could be wrong here but I think that theres two likely possibilities for you - first is the motor controller board could be faulty - it may have a short on the switch ic for the drain pump - the other is there maybe an air lock or blockage to the pressure tube - remove the display panel to access the clear tube - unclip it & blow into towards the bowl to see if theres a blockage.

You say as soon as the start switch is pushed the pump runs continously? or does it come on as soon as the power button is pushed? either way I think the controller maybe faulty - haven't come across aything like this one before...

Cheers

Hi just read your posting.Unless the machine shows an error code the diagnostic mode will not help.Does the machine agitate in the wash cycle?Does the machine drain the water completely?Does the machine spin the clothes dry.Please reply with additional information on the questions I have posted and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco switching itself off during cycle.


Could be a bad drain pump or controller or rotor position sensor. You will need a Tech to take a look. Unfortunately with these machines there can be many reasons for a failure. Call F/P to get a certified technician out there.
