Washing machine.Fisher and Paykell Kelvinator

Fisher and Pykel Kelvinator (058) 5.5kg Machine wont run.powers up but wont start. even when advance button or pause used. Wont go no matter which temperature/spin configurations selected. Machine is half full of water which it wont pump out either.machine is ten years old. last year it stopped working on hot or warm (stopped and alarm sounded. I put in some warm water from the tap before programming and switching on this time and it has not gone since. Any ideas thanks. Cant really afford a new machine so hoping its an easy glitch. Paul

    Thanks a lot for your help greendude. I thought  I'd sorted the problem when I over-rode the lid switch. Machine now starts but stops between the wash and rinses and spin wont engage for more than 1/4 turn! I wonder if the machine sends a test to the lid switch between functions? Not sure if I should get a replacement switch part. dont want to give up after my earlier (short lived) success. No corrosion on the board which appears fine.

Check the lid switch under the lower board they rust and the fault is normally not starting,or the display board can rust inside near the start/pause button if so try and unsolder a button you dont use and replace the start button.

Error 49 on a Fisher and Pykel washing machine, what can i do to resolve this?? Thankyou.


Your cold valve is faulty. The rubber membrance inside the valve can damaged after certain period of time. The problem may be inside the controller if replcement valve can't fix the problem. There is a resistor on the current path to the valve. It is on the control board. Some timems it can go open. Good luck with the repair

Spin the fan on water pump (you can acess with difficulty from bottom of washer) if it has a little sand in it, it may clear. It is possible to remove water pump if mechanically minded and see if something small eg staple or 5c coin is stuck in it if this dosn't work or you may find you need to replace water pump.

Have you checked the lid micro switch under the motor controller which activates when you close the lid to start the machine?
