Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher & Paykel Washer
Hi, check the reed switch under the lid,and the out of balance switch under the lower board they may be rusty so the machine thinks the lid is open causing this fault
3,5,7,8 code lights indicate an "out of balance fault" Fault 43 according to F&P, It is not a hard job to fix, you will need a new/second hand micro-switch and possibly 2 female spade electrical connectors,a pair of crimping pliers, a star/philips head screwdriver,and a flat blade screwdriver.
Firstly you need to electrically isolate the machine, ie. pull the plug from the power outlet. Then remove the 2 screws at the back of the control panel, lift from the back and it unclips at the front, lay it on its face. We need to get access to the out of balance switch which it to the right of and under the electrionic control box. Remove the single screw holding the electonics box(black box) and move wires so as to allow the box to be lifted up just enough out of the way to access the switch. Use a flat blade srewdriver or strong fingers to unclip and remove the microswitch, replace the switch but inspect the spade terminals for corrosion, replace if corroded. There is a waterproof upgrade for this problem from your dealer. Or you can do what I did and get some spare switches from other electronic devices, they are quite common. The part number for the switches I used was 120727C.
