Even though the resistance of the valve is normal, doesn't mean that it cannot be faulty. Try swapping the valves around and see if you still get cold water coming in through that valve. If not, then the valve is faulty. Don't forget to put the cold valve back where it belongs. There is a difference between the hot and cold valves( cold valve is a proportional valve) but for testing purposes they can be swapped around. To set the size you have to switch the machine off at the wall. Switch it back on again. Wait for all led's to go out. Press & hold the start/pause button while you push the power button. Switch off again and it should be o.k.

Would suggest doing a full hot empty load, using bleach according to bottle instructions. It sounds like a build up of scum from washing powder, fibre from clothing etc. Can also be caused by overuse of fabric conditioner.

I have the same problem , was told that it is the RPS rotary positioning system, cost about $200 to get someone out to fix it.
Although I did reboot it and it went through the wash ok.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven from the flow into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Water will not flow constantly into machine

Check the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine and turn off the water. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Fisher&Paykel Intuitive eco IWL 16 Auto washer Fault code 51

Our washer did the same but it was after I took the excess drain hose and pushed it into the drain in the wall. I thought it looked "more tidy" In doing so I created a siphon effect. Once I pulled the excess hose back out it was fine.

Error Code 49 on Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco

Fault 49 usually points to the cold inlet valve, either open circuit or not connected correctly. I often come across machines that the motor controller is the problem too.

Intuitive eco fisher & paykel washing machine

this is a pretty clear cut fault (66). It is a problem with the pressure transducer (water level). The only cure is to replace the motor controller (which is the lower of the 2 modules in the console)
