Fault 130 in a Fisher & Paykel washer indicates a faulty Rotaty Position Sensor, or a faulty Motor Controller board.
F&P machines are quite technical and a seviceman should be called so that all components can be tested which interact with the faulty part.
This way you won't be replacing parts which might fail again, and a techs work will be covered by a warranty.
Probably not what you wanted to hear, but the best way to go in the long run.
TIP..... Before you call a tech you should look under the machine and check if there are rusty stains (or even clear water) on the bottom of the flywheel and/or of there are stains on the inside of the cabinet. These are caused by water leaking through the seals being flung from the flywheel onto the inner cabinet. If this is the case you'll need to add new bearings/seals and maybe a shaft to the bill..
Good luck....Nomess

130 is a sensor fault on the main drive motor. I'm not sure if you can purchase this or if you have to get the complete motor.

Did you look up your manual to help with the problem?

AquaSmart2 8kg - this is a link to download your manual

The good thing is that if you got Fisher & Paykel to come out, they offer a warranty on their service - so call them again and tell them the situation - they should come out for free....

Washing machine doesnt wash


Fault code 130 means the RPS (rotor position sensor) is not sending correct signals to the control board. The RPS is a small electronic device mounted on top of the motor copper stator. Either the wiring plug attached to the RPS has corroded the contacts or the RPS needs replacing. You will have to lie the machine down on front face to access the motor. Unscrew the centre bolt and remove the outer rotor bowl, then loosen the 4 hex. head bolts holding the stator about half way. Pull stator down so you can remove the wiring plug from RPS. Check for corrosion. If no corrosion then remove & replace the RPS.

RPS fault. this part can easily be replaced. the rotor part of the motor needs to be removed (5/8 socket) then you will see the RPS on the side of the stator. loosen the 4 bolts (3/8), pop it off, replace.
