Fisher and Paykel Pride 5.5

Is the diverter valve something that a housewife can repair?

Posted by on

  • holmoak Jul 05, 2008

    My Smart Pride 5.5 will not pump out and beeps after each cycle. Nor will it spin when put on the spin cycle. I was told it might need a module pump RPS. What is a module pump and is it something that I can replace myself?



    Thanks

What does error 52 mean


52. (00110100) Phase 5 and 6 Eco - Diverter Top-up Fault
More than 6 attempts to top-up the water level in the bowl, this then signifies the
valve has not closed and is diverting to drain, or the top-up was not increasing quick
enough suggesting the valve has a blockage and is also draining.
Primary Source: Diverter valve
Action: Remove the diverter valve and check for blockages or broken hinge
mechanism.
Secondary Source: Wax Solenoid
Action:
Check the resistance of the wax solenoid, also look for corrosion on the terminals
(greenie deposit) resistance range will be between 0.7k? and 2.5k?. Values are
dependant on ambient temp and when the valve was last actuated. Anything
outside of these values should be automatically replaced.

Pumps out instead of recirculating


Is the valve installed the right way.
When diverter valve is powered will pump water over bowl.
Your motor controller board may be faulty,
And need diverter driver parts replaced.
Set you machine to Traditional wash only to bypass
Eco active filling that users diverter valve.

I ran the diagnostic on my fisher and paykel gwl 11 and it has a fault code 51. Is that more than just a diverter value?


This is error code 51
51. (00110011) Phase 5 and 6 Eco - Diverter Valve Fault
Primary: The motor controller has registered a drop in water level in the
recirculation phase of the wash cycle, water is being drained instead of recirculated.
Or water has been sprayed onto the Valve from an external source and caused the
solenoid to blow.
Action:
Turn the power off at the machine but leave the power on at the wall, then measure
the voltage across the terminals of the wax actuator, if a reading of 230V is
achieved the motor controller has failed due to the valve and both will need to be
replaced.
Secondary: Check for blockage in the valve itself or a broken hinge mechanism.

Fisher paykel gwl15 won't pump out water


My F & P Model GWL15 did the same thing. I purchased a new pump but that was not the problem. Tip the machine back and look under. There is a valve diverter that I removed and checked. There was a dime and lots of lint stuck in the valve so it wouldn't move back and forth anymore. I downloaded a parts manual, page 10 and item # 23 is the valve diverter. Once I unclogged it and put it back together, it worked great. I noticed it works better than it has for a long time. I'm a 60 yr old woman so anyone can do this. Good luck.

Fisher & Paykel GW611 Excellence does not pump water out. All lights are on and when it is suppose to pump, you can hear the noise, but no water coming out of the hose!


It sounds like the drain pump or the diverter valve is restricted. Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear then disconnect power and lay the machine's front on a padded surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve at the bottom of the tub. Remove the pump's inlet and outlet hoses then check and clear from any debris that may prevent water from draining out. Check the impeller for any damage or restriction.

Check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. T
he diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure the valve is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

My Fisher Paykey will not hold water, when it is filling it is pumping back out into the drain, as well there is water on the floor under the washer. what is the problem?


Hi just read your posting.Now on the Intuitive model when it fills it also recirculates the water throe a diverter valve.When the machine is in the drain cycle the diverter valve shifts position and the water drains.The problem with your machine is the diverter is in the drain position when the machine is trying to fill.Now there are 2 types of diverters .Please look underneath the machine to the front right.You should see a pump with a red or black fan attached.Can you please confirm this as then I can guide you throe the testing and repairing of the machine.Looking forward to your reply.

Fisher paykel empties as it fills (similiar to recent entry)


Check your drain hose behind the machine. This should be approx 3 feet from ground level; then into the wall standpipe. The fix behind should not be air-tight. Your pump pumps the water 'over' this height. This may be silly.....but just check.

& rate if helped pl....................or 'thanks for trying' & your prob will be back here on the net for further solutions by anyone else.
