I have the same problem , was told that it is the RPS rotary positioning system, cost about $200 to get someone out to fix it.
Although I did reboot it and it went through the wash ok.

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT!!! WE WIN!

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!

If none of these tasks remedy the problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Fault code 130 appears on my fisher and paykel intuitive eco washing machine, do I require a technician to fix this?


130. (10000010) Phase 1 to 6 - Single Rotor Position
Sensor Error
The Motor Control Module has found an error in the pattern received
from the Rotor Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad
connection on the harness between the Rotor Position Sensor and the
Motor Control Module, or a faulty Rotor Position Sensor.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: 1. Check for corrosion on the edge connector of
the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor
Control Module connector.
2. Check the contacts on the rotor positional
sensor end of the hall harness to see if any
have been damaged. (Each set of contacts in
the socket has two wipers. If the distance
between these wipers varies between
different contacts, replace the rotor positional
sensor harness.)
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Action: Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S.
tester. Replace if faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.

Washing Machine Intuitive Eco model number IW811 won't power on?


Possible Cause Solution The power switch is not turned on at the wall. Unplug the machine from the wall. Wait 60 seconds, plug back in and turn the power back on again. The household power supply is at fault. Try plugging another electrical appliance into the power slot.

Intuitive ECO Model IW811 display error codes 240 and 130. what does this mean?


The fault codes 130 and 240 are pertaining to a Rotor Position Sensor problem. It is the part located wedged into the motor stator and it's sole function is the detection of motor functions particularly the rotor as the name suggests. The problem can be a simple loose wire harness or a damaged Rotor Position Sensor.

Unplug the machine. Tape the lid closed then lay the machine's front on a padded floor. Remove the single bolt holding the "plate-like" rotor to the shaft to access the Rotor Position Sensor. Once the rotor is off, check the contacts on the Rotor Position Sensor end of the wire harness to see if any have been damaged. Each set of contacts in the socket has two wipers. If the distance between these wipers varies between different contacts, replace the Rotor Position Sensor harness. Consider replacing the Rotor Position Sensor if no issue is found with the harness and the connectors.

Fisher@paykel Intuitive eco comes up with code 130 what is it or how do we fix it


rotary position sensor fault. underneath the machine. Unbolt plastic cover with 16mm socket all of the plastic will come off. Undo four 10mm bolts around shaft. Pull off the big round thingy with cooper wire on it carefully. The purple wire is connected to the sensor which looks like a computer card and fits between the copper things ,pull up the sensor carefully and unpug the connection clean off the blue stuff on contacts,use electrical spray cleaner. Put back together in reverse.
Comments: Aug 03, 2009 - if it still doesnt work reset the machine by turning it off at the wall and waiting 2mins and start again. If that doesnt work the sensor may need replacing.
