Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
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.

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!
