Everytime I start the washer it pauses halfway through the cycle why is that


If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design. Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly
If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design. Water Inlet Valve
If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.
Main Control Board
If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.
Timer
If the washer stops mid cycle the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer

Fault 49 pops up on the screen


If your washer is a Fisher Paykel Top-Load Washer Error Codes = 49 I found this online by typing "Washing Machine Fault 49" into a google search engine...

Error Fault Condition - Water Inlet Valve Fault.
Repair or Check - Unplug the washer from power. Reconnect any non secure wires on the water inlet valve. Replace the wire harness if it is found to be damaged. If the wiring is okay then measure the resistance of the water inlet valves using an ohm meter. If the resistance of each water inlet valve solenoid is not 60 to 62 ohms then replace the complete water inlet valve assembly.
Parts for Replacement - Water Inlet Valve Assembly or Wire Harness.

Whats the difference between e10 and e11 error codes on frigidaire afinity f/l washers?


Thank you for your post, greg aguilar!
Both error codes "E10" and "E11" stand for fill time is too long on your Frigidaire washer. This could be an issue with the water pressure coming into your washer the psi must be above 30 psi. If it is not you may need to correct the pressure issue. If it is check to assure that the hose is not kinked or blocked. You may need to replace the water inlet valve, pressure sensor, or control panel. I would recommend having a professional technician come out to provide a proper diagnosis for repair. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Dishwasher has fault code ie


IE fault indicates water fill problem. Check inlet hose not kinked or blocked. Check no water in base activated flood switch. Otherwise, problem will be a faulty inlet valve(can test with Ohm meter), faulty flow meter (measures water intake- cannot test with meter), or faulty control board. Flow meter located on Left hand side of machine- accessed by removing side panel. It has a sensor with 3 wires(red,white,black) which goes up to control board. If inlet valve tests OK (about 4K ohms), and there is no water in base, I would try replacing flow meter assy (comes with housing and sensor complete)
