My fisher & paykel smartdrive MW095AU wont spin, it gets to the end of the rinse and becomes very slow for around 25 minutes then eventually just stars beeping.... The error or diagnostic code is 00101000 Any suggestions or should i just get a new one.
Thanks for your help.
F & P Smart drive GW 051 washes and rinses and empties OK. At the end it will not spin, but agitates slowly for 15 or 20 minutes then stops, bleeping.
Error code as far as I can work out, is 00101000
This is copied from service manual::::::
40. (00101000) Phase 1 to 5 - Bowl Dis-Engaged Fault
While carrying out a bowl check, the Display module has found that the bowl is not engaged
even though the pressure sensor indicates that the bowl is empty. The Motor Controller continues to check for 2 minutes after which time the display this fault. If restart is on this fault can take up to 4 hours to diagnose. The first two areas to check are the clutch and the
pressure tube. If these two appear correct, then the fault could be in the pressure transducer in
the Motor Controller.
Primary Source - Suds
Action - Too many suds, too much detergent has been used. Restart product when suds have
disappeared, or select a deep rinse option.
Secondary Source - Mechanical
1. Check that there are no clothes or other foreign objects preventing the clutch from reengaging.
2. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked.
Tertiary Source - Motor Controller. (Display Module Phase 1).
Action - Replace Motor Controller (Display Module Phase 1), if the above check out without

Check the belt to the water pump, remove the inspection place on the right hand bottom corner of the machine with the power off, remove belt, examine it, replace if worn. Turn the water pump pulley by hand to see if there is any friction of sorts. there might be an obstruction in the pump.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped.
