Oeinnz,
According to the manual that I have, which is for different models so it might not be the same problem, it says something about a Pressure transducer frequency out of range(>90kHz). The primary source is the motor controller and the action listed is to replace the motor control module. I did find another updated manual and it has the same info, so it looks like you need to replace the motor control module.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Nick

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.This fault code indicates you have a COLD WATER VALVE FAULT.The lights you marked with --x-- are the ones that are lit.Is this correct?What you need to do is to test the valve coil for OHMS resistance.It should be around 60 to 63 ohms.The water valves are located under the top panel.Please reply to tell me how you got on or if you need further assistance.

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.
