Fault code #49 is 'faulty cold inlet valve' You need to replace it with another COLD valve as F&P says they are different to the hot valve.These valves do not use mains voltage and must be replaced with the F&P part. Access via the 2 screws at the rear of the facia.
Remove the inlet valve retainer via the 2 screws between the inlet valves.
TIP.... I cut away the top of the valve slot so that the valve can be lifted straight up and out, without having to move the mixer box or spill any panni.
Don't forget to swap the seal from the old valve to the new one.
Once the valve is replaced the retainer makes everything secure again.
Good luck....Nomess

Testimonial: "Subsequently a local technician checked the machine.He checked the output voltage of PCB,which is hardy @3 volts.The cold inlet valve rating is 12v.He interchanged input wires to cold valve with hot water valve.Then also it didnot work.I told him the hot water valve will receive supply only when it comes in cycle of hot water requirement.I think he is not convinced.He said there is some fault with PCB.He fills that some tracks of PCB are broken.He repaired thesuspected tracks nicely.The problem still persists."

Fisher paykel aquasmart fault 49


Fault code 49 is water valves, But the Aqua-Smart board is outputting the wrong code here, The Smart pump has blown the water valves fuse, A common thing in Aqua-Smart Machines.
The Smart pump has jammed with lint and caused over current to the board and taken out parts on the board that drive the pump.

What is error code 136 on a fisher & paykel IW709AU top load washer


136 fault is 'motor stall'...Quite often this is a broken wire to the motor. However it could also be a Motor fault, or Rotary Position Sensor problem. Water damage can cause this fault as well. After a visual check for broken wires or water damage, and if your machine is in good condition, you should consider a tech....Good luck...Nomess

Machine won't start


Hi there
i'm not sure if the fisher and paykel machines are any different in new zealand compared to where you live, but the only thing i can think of if it isn't displaying a fault code is if this machine is fitted with a reed switch(these make sure the machine stops if the lid is opened during operation) this may be faulty and staying open causing the machine to stop when the lid is closed. Hope this helps.

Hello you can get the parts from any New Zealand F & P service center( $50-80nz). You need a special F & P tool kit (you can buy for around $100nz from F & P also) to remove the seal and bearings and to insert the new. unless you know an appliance tech or have a service manual it could be a tricky one. cheers
