Hello Tony;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

At the two terminals at the solenoid valve (no power) you should have your meter set at the lowest Ohms. The reading should be '0' if the solenoid is good. Any other reading it is bad.

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.

  • The Water Pressure is very low.(below 10 psi)
  • Inlet Valve is OK?
  • The filter of Inlet Valve is clogged by impure water.

The ice maker isn't working


Hello there,
You should first try to see if water is getting into the ice maker that is to be used to make ice. That is controlled by the water inlet vale. Also check if the tube that passes water into the ice maker is not clogged with dirt.
You need to run a check on your water inlet valve and the defrost thermostat.
Your icemaker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simply thaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer. An icemaker's water inlet valve has a filtering screen to block minerals and other debris from entering into your ice cubes. It is possible that the water inlet valve's screen is blocked, and not allowing any water through to make ice. Clean out any built up debris you find. You should be able to pop the screen out of place with a screwdriver and then put it back in place with the screwdriver again once it is cleaned. Alternatively, the water inlet valve itself may have become defective. You will have to test it. If the test proves the valve is defective, replace it. .Before you begin to test your icemaker's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply.
  1. Locate your icemaker's water inlet valve, it is typically located behind a refrigerator. Gently pull your refrigerator away from the wall. You may want to place scraps of carpet, of some other soft material below the fridge to prevent damage to the floor. Turn of the water valve's water supply by closing the shut-off valve in the waterline leading to the water valve. Remove the lower access panel on the back of the refrigerator using a screwdriver or a nut driver.
  2. Place a container under the valve to catch any water that may spill from the water valve and its fill tube. Remove the water valve's fill tubing. Loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting that is found on the inlet side of the water valve. You can use a wrench to loosen the flare nut.
  3. Your water inlet valve is held in place on your refrigerator by means of a metal bracket. Use a screwdriver or a nut driver to remove the screw that holds the water valve's bracket to the refrigerator cabinet. Gently pull the water valve out of the cabinet, and remove the tube from the outlet port.
  4. There are two wires connecting to the terminals of your water inlet valve. If yours is a double solenoid water valve, it will have four wires. Be sure to label each wire so that you know where to reconnect them later. Firmly grasp the metal connector of the wires in order to remove the wires. You may need to use a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Do not pull on the wires themselves.
  5. Set your multi-tester to the R X 1 ohms setting to test for continuity. Place each of the multi-tester's leads on a terminal. Your multi-tester should display a reading between 200 and 500 ohms. Closely examine your water inlet valve. The exact ohm resistance rating you should test for may be marked on the valve.
If the test you conduct with your icemaker water inlet valve does not produce these results, then you should replace the component.
To test you defrost thermostat http://www.fixya.com/support/r10513592-test_defrost_thermostat To replace it: http://www.fixya.com/support/r10513650-replace_defrost_thermostat
If both have been tested and you found out the problem is not from either of them, then i will advice you replace the ice maker mechanism.

Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp
