SOURCE: beeping

Thanks! I found this online, which shows how to run tests on the washer to see what might be wrong, which helped, too. Now if i can just find a few muscly people to help me move the dryer from atop the washer.

I believe there is a setting where you can turn the beeping alarm off completely. Read the manual and you should find it.

Sounds like error 49.
A water solenoid. I bought mine for $40 on ebay. FP didn't want to help. I still had the same problem after so I did a bit of chasing. I wasn't going to pay $350 for a controller, they must cost about $30 to make!

If you look closely at the solenoids you may see a bulge or burning.



I replaced the solenoid but still had binary 49 LED code. I chased the circuit through the Motor Controller (brown one in Australia) GW712.

It was a couple of FETS or Qs in a H drive. The get fed their +v from the main power rectifier. There is a funny looking round component called F^ which is a quick blow 1.6 A fuse. Because my solenoid had a shorted turn on it (bubling to outside packaging) it had blown this.

I didn't have one instock so I substituted an ordinary glass 2AG 2.0amp fast blow. You need to remove the old fuse and solder 2 wires into the holes left these are inturn soldered to the fuse ends. I used hot glue to hold the fuse clear of any other components.

You can get slow blow fuses almost anywhere. In my experience ordinary fuses are the same they always fail after the components are lost anyhow!

If you are desperately dirty you could just jump the 2 holes with tinned copper but this could represent a fire hazard if a solenoid goes again.

We amke microcontrollers. It is a simple fix and saved me $350. A fuse is 10c or maybe $1 if you buy them one at a time. Make sure you test the plugs before you start up. My GW712 read:

1. Each motor winding ~ 35 ohms to any other
2. The lid solenoid ~ 70 ohms
3. Each water solenoid ~ 60 ohms
4.The thermistor ~ 10K ohms


# When this fault exists you can empty the water by removing the tube to the Pressure Xducer and using a tube from your mouth to blow into it HARD!!! The pump will start and pump it out for you.

To calculate the error code (for what use that is when you can find out)


LEDS indicating wash cycle

X X X X X X X X

128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1

Add the values for each light LED

SOURCE: i have a fisher and paykel washing machine top

the control board is starting play up but you knew that the main reason we see this on the f/p is the sensor that controls the capstan motor its located below the base of the motor you need to unscrew the big white plastic lug that holds the base of the motor take all the dust out clean it well then take the tiny sensor out it has a small lead running to it be careful its delicate clean all dust from its ir leds then replace all parts and it will work like a dream


best of luck

The error code is displayed when its beeping.
I don't know the error code, so It can only be three things,
Out of balance switch,Lid magnetic reed switch,Or Rotor position sensor,Your error code would help me work out witch one of these are faulty. to work out your error code look at picture below.
Add up the lights that are on.

No power? Let's see if we can solve this problem.
  1. Unplug then plug back again.
  2. Start the program.
  • If beeping send for repair/replacement.
  • If not beeping be happy to continue using your washing machine.
