Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
Cold wash. Switched to Hot wash and still didn't work - so doesn't appear to be Cold solenoid. Played with safety switch after taking off lid - seems to not be the problem. Checked water level sensor - is not bent - seems to not be the problem either. I'm guessing it's the computer board. Any suggestions?
No. It's a water inlet valve problem.

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

Testimonial: "Very helpful, as I was completely ignorant about the workings of a washing machine. Replied promptly and had a good sense of humour - important in a crisis!"
when they beep the main p.c.b bord has detected an error on the f/p series the main fault we have found with this is the small icb sensor that runs along side the capstan drive drum try cleaning it if this does not work try replacing the head control p.c.b bord

There are several possible causes. To track down the problem, first shut off the water supply valve feeding the washing machine, then remove the hot water hose from the machine and direct it into a bucket. Turn on the water supply valve. Does water come out? Is it hot? If you only get cold water, then you need to insulate the pipe between the water heater and the supply valve so you get hot water faster (assuming the water heater is working!)
If you have a supply of hot water, then check the inlet screen where the hose connects to the washing machine. Perhaps it is clogged with lime or sediment. If it is clear, then you have a fault in the hot water solenoid valve or water temperature selector switch.

Fisher and Paykel, EcoSmart with lid lock. After initial fill, all wash lights go out, advances to rinse, then beeps continuously. Have to shut machine off and start over. Continues to wash, but leaks out of top panel under lid. Machine is level. Any Suggestions?
