Fisher & Paykel washer IW712: fault code 105

Our washer (Eco Intuitive) switched on by itself one day and could only turn off at the wall. We replaced the motherboard, then got fault code 105 so replaced the pump, but still got fault code 105. Have now replaced pump motor control board and still getting same fault code. The display screen module seems to be working fine so we have not replaced that. What else could it be?

I ran the diagnostic on my fisher and paykel gwl 11 and it has a fault code 51. Is that more than just a diverter value?

This is error code 51
51. (00110011) Phase 5 and 6 Eco - Diverter Valve Fault
Primary: The motor controller has registered a drop in water level in the
recirculation phase of the wash cycle, water is being drained instead of recirculated.
Or water has been sprayed onto the Valve from an external source and caused the
solenoid to blow.
Turn the power off at the machine but leave the power on at the wall, then measure
the voltage across the terminals of the wax actuator, if a reading of 230V is
achieved the motor controller has failed due to the valve and both will need to be
Secondary: Check for blockage in the valve itself or a broken hinge mechanism.

Washing Machine Intuitive Eco model number IW811 won't power on?

Possible Cause Solution The power switch is not turned on at the wall. Unplug the machine from the wall. Wait 60 seconds, plug back in and turn the power back on again. The household power supply is at fault. Try plugging another electrical appliance into the power slot.

My Fisher and Paykel IW810AU has stopped mid wash full of water and just beeps constantly and flashes message I need Service Fault 105. Have turned it on and off at the wall with no change. Please help.

Hi, the faults 105 is reported when the Display Module detects an error in the communications between the Display Module and the Motor Control Module.

The primary source of the problem is the Pump and you have to measure resistance of pump. If resistance is less than 33 ohms, replace pump.

What is code 105

Error code 105 means you have a Comms. Error Time out. This means there is a communications error between the display module and the motor controller.Now have you replaced a part in the machine recently?Just looked in my manual and it also says, to rectify this fault you might need to replace the rotor sensor on the motor.Please reply and tell me if the machine became faulty or a part was changed for another fault and then Error 105 started appearing in the display.Hope to hear from you soon.

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.

Fisher&Paykel Intuitive eco IWL 16 Auto washer Fault code 51

Our washer did the same but it was after I took the excess drain hose and pushed it into the drain in the wall. I thought it looked "more tidy" In doing so I created a siphon effect. Once I pulled the excess hose back out it was fine.

Code 49 and Manual Book

Fault 49 usually points to the cold inlet valve. I have come across many with this fault that the valve tests ok and it needs the motor controller replaced.
