Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Have a F&P Eco IW810 that is not sensing the water level and so is overfilling to the point of flooding. I am an Electronics Engineer and so have the knowledge and tools, tho without a service manual am flying blind.. Have checked the air tube and is not blocked or kinked. When supplying a light vacuum then positive pressure, I can hear a slight click within the pressure sensor. Any help with any of the above greatly appreciated!

Let the machine fills until it overflows and while filling, keep an ear on the pressure sensor to verify if you can hear that clicking sound. If the pressure sensor doesn't click, check the pressure hose and connections for leaks. If you can hear the click, the motor controller module, where the pressure sensor is an integral part, is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My Lg problem is FE?What Ihave to do?


zjlimited_1817.jpg

Turn the water taps clockwise to close them and unplug the washer if "FE" or "PE" appears on the display. The "FE" error means the water valve is faulty and the washer is overfilling. "PE" means the water level sensor is faulty.

Hope helps.

Dishlex Global 300 Dishwasher - ECO Light flashing - Manual indicates incorrect fill level - Manual suggests hold ECO button for 10 Seconds. No success. Have tried pressing and holding buttons - no...


eco light sometimes indicates that water has got into the bottom panel of the machine. A float switch is underneath to protect the machine ( and your kitchen floor from being flooded. ( Either from overfilling or a leak) If you tilt the machine backwards see if any water runs out. If the machine restarts , then you will have sourced the problem. Should the flashing start again later, you may have a water leak underneath. Also check the lower door gasket to make sure its clean. If the gasket is dirty, sometimes water builds up behind the gasket and drips over the front of the tub into the bottom panel underneath causing this symptom. When cleaning the gasket, be very carefull!! The edges of the door at the bottom are razor sharp..

Your pressure value switch is malfunction. First thing you can try that is cheap to fix is to try clean the hose that connects to the outer tub. A lot of times there is algae develops after years of washing.

After commencing a programme my Hotpoint BF71 dishwasher takes in water but overfills, filling the whole of the tub nearly to door level. The waste pump starts for a short burst and then more water comes...


Check for a float switch that senses the water level. It may have two level sense of filled and overfill the latter would trigger the waste pump to avoid a flood. If the filled switch has failed, that could cause the problem. The waste pump MAY also be triggered on the basis of the filling taking too much time before the filled switch actuates... if it has failed, the time would be exceeded.

I have a fisher & paykel IW810 washing machine that will not fill the bowl with water. While filling, it is also pumping the water out, in the autowater level sensing mode. I have gone into the command...


hi, reading your posting it tells me that the machine will fill on traditional wash but on auto fill mode it pumps the water out at the same time it is filling. i"m pretty sure it is your diverter . on auto fill mode it fills a little bit then the pump comes on and recirculates your water by pumping the water from the bottom of the bowl to the top of the bowl over the clothes. on auto fill mode it also activates the diverter to pump the water back to the bowl. on your machine the diverter is stuck in the drain out position so when it trys to recirculate the water it drains out the water instead . the problem could be a faulty diverter, control module or a broken wire.hope this helps, please reply if you need more help. good luck.

Dishwasher fdb4315lfc stuck with eco wash led and a pump running


Sounds like the Anti-flood switch has been triggered - possibly due to overfilling. Check seal of water level pipe at each end.

FL code on a Calypso Whirlpool washer


FL= Flood Condition
FL flashes if any overfill condition

occurs. This condition occurs when

excessive water in the tub causes the

overfill switch to trip. The control must

realize that the trio was due to an

overfill condition instead of a suds lock

condition in order for FL to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper

repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no

time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode

for 30 secondson 30 seconds off untill the

overfill switch resets or power is

discontinued to the unit.

Note: Press STOP/CANCEL to clear display on all error codes

Causes of flood condition. Inlet valves

stuck on, Sediment in water level pressure

tube.

Other codes:
PF power failure
Er control lost settings during PF
LF Long fill Clogged inlet screens
CE Com error between motor and control
Ld Long drain Clogged/slow drain/pump
CA/CI Motor amping up
ob off balance load
Sr relay failure no control to motor
LS Lid switch no signal from lid switch, error occurs if the motor and control disagree as to the position of the lid switch. Usually means corosion is buit up in the switch and the motor knows the lid is shut but the control does not. Cose appears when start button is pressed.
open lid= flashing display time If the lid is opened time remaining flashes in display. Close lid and press start to continue.
SL Suds Lock Current draw on motor is sensed by motor control and a suds lock is declared The control trys 3 times to fix this by doing a mini cycle, SL is displayed if the unit was unable to correct the problem. This problem is caused by:
Bad pump
Extra heavy load
Excessive detergent
or Excessive suds/wrong stuff

OVERFILLED AND FLOODED HOUSE


1 of two problems happened.
1) either the water level sensor went bad. Which tells the water inlet valve when to shut off and the machine to start operating.
2) The water inlet valve has failed. This comes from the water hose and fills the washing machine.

Flooding and overfilling


Hi

If your washer is overfilling, check these:
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.


Please accept the solution and revert for any further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee
