F&P machines are capable of self-diagnosis, but you have to have the codes and the fault numbers to interpret the binary display.
This is a very simple and quick job for a F&P tech, who will also check any other component which may have caused a secondary fault.
It's risky to just install parts without doing the recommended checks because F&P machines can have component failures which cause other problems elswhere.
An experienced tech will check and replace the parts required and should offer a warranty which you won't get if you do the work yourself.
Probably not what you wanted to hear, but cheaper than ruining electronic parts with no recourse.
Good luck....Nomess

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

Most of the faults are pump related.

If readings are less change your pump.

FISHER & Paykel 6.5 Smart Drive - No display lights


You need to get hold of a multi-meterand check the resistance of the pump, It should be 33ohms or close to it, the pump is part of the power circuit and the machine will appear dead if it has blown or is unplugged, If the machine was running without the earth wire to the pump connected and the pump had a fault/blockage there is a very good chance that it has blown the motor controller module. It requires the earth to provide a fault path to earth.

My Fisher and Paykel IW810AU has stopped mid wash full of water and just beeps constantly and flashes message I need Service Fault 105. Have turned it on and off at the wall with no change. Please help.


Hi, the faults 105 is reported when the Display Module detects an error in the communications between the Display Module and the Motor Control Module.

The primary source of the problem is the Pump and you have to measure resistance of pump. If resistance is less than 33 ohms, replace pump.

Fisher & paykel waterpump / Burnt smell clothing


ok, have you checked for power at the power point? if you have power to the machine and the display doesn't light up after you have turned the power point on then your control module is faulty. only the phase 5 models don't power up if the pump is faulty, your machine is a phase 2 with a blue control module. by the way, what part of the machine did you pull apart? i think your pump was faulty which made the control module faulty. check the pump for a burning smell. if it is burnt then i"m sure your module is too. please reply if you need more help to fix this problem.please turn off the power b4 you work on it, don"t want any accidents . good luck.
