I had the same problem, code 43 is an out of balance switch problem, i found mine was just sticky, if you pull it out (under the electronic control unit, under the top panel) you may be able to find out if its stuck or if it needs a new one, you could possibly find one from another model. hope this helps

    Very helpful just undo the 2 screws at the back of the control panel at the top of machine then undo 1 screw in the centre that holds the control board pull it back MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF and you will see the switch on the right side under power board 1 you can take the 2 wires off and somehow join them together for a temp fix or permanent but you will have no out of balance and it is only low voltage so you can join wires or stick a little piece of steel into both of them so they touch each other until you get a new one it is a limit switch when buying I joined wires and is working well 6 months on.

SOURCE: HELP!! fisher and paykel intuitive clothes washer: error code 36

schmotty, An error code "36" means Water leak fault: The Motor Control Module has needed to top up the water level more than 4 times during agitate. This is excessive, as normally only one or two top ups are required to replace the air that has escaped from a full load during agitate. The most likely cause is that the machine is siphoning. The other alternative is that the machine has developed a leak.Thats what you have to do: Primary Source: Pump System. Action 1) Check the height of the drain hose outlet. Minimum 33.46in / 850mm, maximum 47.24in / 1200mm. 2) Check that the hose guide is fitted and check that the hose does not protrude more than .78in / 20mm beyond the guide. Secondary Source: Mechanical. Action: 1) Check the pressure tube connections on the outer basket and Motor Control Module. 2) Check that the drive shaft seal and the pump housing seal have not developed a leak. Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module. Action: Replace Motor Control Module. Gendos...post it

SOURCE: Whats a code 43 on

That's an 'out of balance' switch problem. Typically caused by a crook microswitch that lives under the main processor housing. Can replace with a generic switch from Jaycar or similar if needed.

Washing machine stopped filling up and an error 43 or 43 came up on screen


Hi just read your posting.Now Error code 43 means you have an OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH FAULT.The switch is located under the control module which is located under the top panel.Would you like me to guide you throe the testing and possible replacement of the Switch?The secondary source of this error code is your Motor Controller.But we must test the switch 1st as the switch is the most likely component that is faulty.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch.It would make it easier to test the switch with the tester but there are ways around this.Please reply for further assistance and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Have an eco washer gwl 10. worked fine for years today stopped wokring. tried all trouble shooting and diagnostics. always coming up error code 43. replaced switch and no different. any idea?


Hi there

Try bridging the switch out(join the wires together) and if that doesnt work you may have to replace your motor controller module.

I hope this helps.
