Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
The fault code 130 is for Rotary Position Sensor fault. RPS is an electronic component which is neccessary for the motor to turn. It may have failed because of water leaking through the shaft seal. In this case water will have spun out onto the insides of the cabinet. This situation is probably a message to replace the machine.
If the inside of the cabinet is clean and the RPS is the only problem you would be well advised to call a serviceman. The RPS is a little tricky to get in properly and a serviceman will warranty his work.
It is not a big job for an experience tech. Get quotes.

Hi Mark just read your posting.Now the lights that have lit up are in a row of 8 lights and starting from the left to right the 1st and 7th lights are lit when it is beeping.Is this correct?If the information is correct then the fault you have is called SINGLE ROTOR POSITION SENSOR ERROR.The rotor sensor is located underneath your machine attached to your motor.The other 2 reasons why this fault appears is the wiring to the rotor sensor is faulty or the control module is faulty.Unfortunately to test the rotor sensor you need a device called a RPS TESTER.Also to test the wiring to the rotor sensor you will need an electrical test meter to test for conductivity of the wires.If you have or can borrow an electrical test meter I can help you test the wiring but I am sorry I cant help you test the rotor sensor without an RPS tester.Please reply to let me know how you would like to proceed and I will help you as much as I can.Looking forward to your reply.
