Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
FP Intuitive Washer shows a fault 43 -call for service. Anyone out there able to assist please??
code 43 is an out of balance switch problem.Once replaced, would fix the issue.
One trick that might work ;-
I unscrewed top cover, then unscrewed and lifted up the grey computer cover. The balance switch is underneath on the right with a yellow and white wire coming off.
I removed switch from clip and then removed the wires/clips from contacts. There was definitely corrosion on the contacts. I soaked switch overnight in vinegar. Then rinsed with water. Then dried switch out for day.
Put it all back together and am now on second load of washing.

Thanks Taran, this method worked for me. Yours is the only one on this site that did actually work. I still don't know what the dogs are that someone said I should check without any further explanation. I'm not a washing machine tech, I'm a scientist and a girl.
Another little tip: to dry the switch I put it into an airtight container with lots of those little silica dessicant sachets you get in pill bottles and new handbags.
