The flashing of the Rinse LED, third LED from right of the Wash Progress LEDs, indicates error code 04 which means the Motor Controller Module has difficulty communicating with the Display Module. Unplug the machine then remove the 2 screws from the rear of the console then raise the console for access to the connection between the Motor Controller Module and the Display Module.

Check the connection between the two and make sure the connectors are corrosion free and sit snugly on the terminals. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connectors and terminals. The Motor Controller Module needs replacing if the connectors are clean and snugly connected to the terminals but the issue keeps on recurring.

    I opened the console and every looks to be ok all very clean ,How do I reseat the connections?

    Also how much would a new motor controller Module cost if it needs replacing?

    Reseating is simply disconnecting the connectors and reconnecting them several times. The Motor Controller Module cost about $180 to $200 and you can purchase it here.

    Let me put it straight, the Motor Controller Module needs replacing if the connectors are clean
    and snugly connected to the terminals but the issue keeps on recurring. That is, replace the Motor Controller Module if the problem is not addressed after all the suggested actions has been done.

not familliar with that exact model number ( we dont have that over here in the US) we have simalair f&p gwl10- gwl11) that problem sounds as if either the pump is bad and overheating before pumping all the water or a diverter valve is not fully closing allowing water to remain in tub.

It is either the inlet valve or the pump. If the pump is fine you need to replace the inlet valve. Here you can find parts.

SOURCE: fisher & paykel fill up with water then

Yep it sounds like another electronics panel has failed.
We never had this much trouble in the old days with the old electric timer machines.

Possible that the program controller is faulty and is not executing the output when the wash cycle and the drain is done. So the program must advance further to the next stage to drive the motor to spin after the water is pumped off and the water level sensor is reset.
Have the conttroller checked to confirm the fault, look for loose joints in the connections.
If not the controller can be a suspect.

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

The lights come on, but the machine doesn't start


do you hear a beep when the start button is pushed? if u do hear a beep then it could be your lid switch is faulty, if you dont hear a beep then your keypad is faulty. is the plastic covering the buttons cracked?the keypads fault sometimes because water goes thru the cracks into the electronics causing it to corrode. please reply with answers 4 more help.
