The wiring plugs for the controller box are all different sizes and will only go in one place. Each plug location is written next to it on the plastic casing if you look close i.e. RPS, Display, Lid/OOB, Motor, Drain pump etc. The plug on the power lead will go in the place right next to it and just to the right of that is where the earth wires go (green)

If you are not sure of the wiring contact an electrician!

Connect each wire to the correct terminal. Slacken the screw and push the bare wire into the hole. Re-tighten the screw. Make sure the terminals are tight and that there is no bare wires or loose strands of wire showing. It is often easier to push the pins up slightly when connecting the wires.

SOURCE: fisher & paykel washing machine fault codes

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

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.

No spinning action on my MW511 Fisher and Paykell Wash Machine. Drains water ok. Then shows small beginning of back/ forth agitation - but not progressing to full spin mode. Warning lights showing...


Hi just read your posting.Now with the error code you have shown it tells me you have an out of balance fault.To find out if the fault is with the out of balance switch or the motor controller you will need an electrical test meter. the reason for this is to test the switch for conductivity,not to test for power or anything dangerous.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch?please reply and I can guide you throe the repair of this fault.
