Hi Alan,

You need to size the machine correctly, it would normally have instructions with the new replacement controls. I cannot help you without a model number, there are 3-5 various methods pending on the model.

SOURCE: i have just changed the brown control board and

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

You did not provide a make and model number so here is my best model to problem guess....

Your new control board is missing the size information.

AQUASMART-SIZE-SETTING. Size information must be programmed when a Motor Control Module or Display Module has been replaced. If the size is not set, the display will show fault code 9, or the water levels and wash actions will be incorrect. If the machine displays fault code 9, the machine must be switched off at the wall and then back on again before it can be sized.

Setting the size:

Unplug at the wall and then re-plug it in.

Press and hold Temp Up, then press Power. Wait for the 4 beeps, then set your machine size as follows to YOUR machine size:

5/5.5kg machines - press Temp Up. Cold led should light.
6/6.5kg machines - press Water Up. Low water led should light.
7/7.5kg machines - press Spin Speed up. Spin hold led should light.

Power off, try a programme.
Thanks for using FixYa!


From the Tech Sheet:

IWL12 and GWL 11 are different models. One of the two procedures will work for your machine.

The machine size must be set into the machine
memory if a Motor Controller or Display Module has
been changed.

To set the size:
1. Turn the power on at the power point and off
at the console.

2. IWL12 - Press and hold the FABRIC CARE
button, then press the POWER button. This
will present a set of options in the LCD
screen. The LCD screen has within it a
number of options. Push the Adjust button to
highlight the 650mm (L) machine size.
Pushing the POWER button will lock the size
into the module’s memory.

GWL11 – Press and hold the WASH TEMP
UP button then press the POWER button.
Press the SPIN SPEED UP button (the HOLD
LED should be on.)
3. Press the POWER button to return to normal

Intuitive Iw509nw fault code 9 what's it mean

the size of the machine needs to be set. if you recently replaced a board the first thing you need to do is 'size set' the machine and instructions should come with the board. holding wash temp up/down and pressing power should get you into the menu, though it's too much to explain here.

Changed board fault 9 comes up

The error code #9 is a machine size error code. The error code can come up if the board was recently replaced. Programing the washers control board wrong could also cause this error.

F9 fault. I replaced the main control panel, with the led display. Still F9 fault after 9 sec. Also get a high pitch humming sound at times. Heats most of the time & F9 does not always come up when...

That sounds like a problem on the invertor board. Unfortunately there is not a lot to be done on the board without a service manual and the needed experience.
Hope that helps.

"Time for service" light comes on after the car

Your mechanic may have forgotten to reset the light. Also if the time for service light is your check engine light a fault code may be stored in the vehicles on board computer. Have the codes pulled to determine if a fault code is present or not. If there are non you can have the light reset, however if there is a fault code and you just reset it the light will keep coming on until the problem is corrected.

Led with number 9 displayed is flashing

LED 9 flashing can mean many things. Here is the list of "flashing codes" for the vostro 1510.

Keep in mind a flashing led is going to blink 3 times. for example,

number one would look like this:

On (solid lit). Blink, blink,blink (paused off) blink, blink, blink... (paused off), (then repeat)

1. ON-FLASH-FLASH = No Ram or ram not seen
2. ON-FLASH-ON = Ram has a problem
3. FLASH-FLASH-FLASH = Motherboard failure (replace board)
4. FLASH-ON-ON = CPU Fault/failure
5. FLASH-ON-FLASH = LCD detect failure/fault
6. ON-ON-FLASH = MINI pci card (controller) failure/fault
7. FLASH-FLASH-OFF = Keyboard fault/failure
9. FLASH-FLASH-ON = Video BIOS or BIOS issue
10. ON-FLASH-FLASH = Modem issue

Depending on the blinking code, you might just need to re-seat or replace your RAM or your CPU. But then again, you could have a more severe motherboard issue.

I have a xerox 7750, error code 9-913

This problem occurs when you buy the wrong image unit.
The contact chip that is located at the bottom of the orange plastic is not for the machine. Replace it with 7750 image unit and that should fix your problem. Black is fault 9-910 cyan fault : 9-911 magenta fault: 9-912 yellor 9-913.

Not coming on-tries 9 times Then stops

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic chargesaccumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by themain chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protectioncircuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occurr are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing statebecause of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.
