Fault code 234 means the motor controller module, the machine's "brain", detected that the lid lock circuit is open. Either the wire harness and connecting the lid lock and the motor controller module is cut open or the connectors are soiled or loose but it is most likely that the lid lock fails to activate.

Lift the lid and the console open and check the continuity of the connecting wire harness and connectors. Make sure the wire harness is intact and the connectors are clean, snug, and tight. Reseat the connections several times to ensure a snug fit connection. Replace the wire harness if deemed necessary or the lid lock assembly (part number 420700/420700P) if no issue is found with the wire harness and connectors.

Let us know if you need further advice. Please accept the solution should you find it helpful or informative. Accepting the solution will not stop you from communicating with the expert. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.

Fisher & Paykel WL26CW1 - Error Code 49! can i swap the hot and cold valves to make it work and disconect the hot valve?? and love this site very informative, Thanx Guys..


The most common problem with AquaSmart is the pump
not the water valves
The pump has gone bad and blown some parts in the motor controller board and the fuse to the water valves.
Some AquaSmart machines display the wrong Error code (49)
witch is not the correct code for this problem.
Pump and motor controller board need replacing.
Maybe cheaper to buy a good secondhand machine.
