Fitting new module

I have just replaced the control module on our washing machine. But I have had problems programming it, I have followed the instructions but it didn't seem to work. Now the machine as got some sort of programme but it doesn't seem to match what it should be, so it seems to be doing whatever it wants. I need to know how to cancel the programme and try to start the programming again. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks Andrew

Do bcm need to be reprogramed

Has to be programmed ,yes .
Body Control Module (BCM) Replacement
If the BCM is replaced, the following procedures must be performed in the subsequent order:
• BCM Reprogramming--Refer to Body Control Module (BCM) Programming/RPO Configuration in Computer/Integrating Systems for replacement, setup, and programming.
• Theft Learn--Refer to Programming Theft Deterrent System Components in Theft Deterrent.

A new body control module (BCM) must be programmed with the proper regular production option (RPO) configurations. The BCM stores the information regarding the vehicle options and if the BCM is not properly configured with the correct RPO codes, the BCM will not control all of the features properly. The Tech 2 software will automatically prompt you with the RPO available for the vehicle. Ensure that the following conditions exist in order to prepare for BCM programming:
• The battery is fully charged.
• The ignition switch is in the ON position.
• The data link connector (DLC) is accessible.
• All disconnected modules and devices are reconnected before programming.
To setup a new BCM, access the Vehicle Control Systems in Computer/Integrating Systems menu on the scan tool to program the BCM. Select Module Replacement/Setup and follow the instructions on the scan tool.
If the BCM fails to accept the program, perform the following steps:
• Inspect all BCM connections.
• Verify that the scan tool has the latest software version.

I hsve a 2008 saturn sky base 2.4L. The dealer says I need a new body control module. My question does the new BCM require reprogramming? If it doesn't then I will replace myself. Thanks

Body Control Module (BCM) Replacement and Reprogramming
If the BCM is replaced or requires reprogramming, the following procedures must be performed in the specified order:
BCM Setup -- Using a scan tool, go to Vehicle Control Systems » Computer/Integrating Systems » Module Setup » Body Control Module. Select Setup BCM and follow the on-screen instructions, making sure to select the proper RPOs and input the VIN correctly.
BPP Sensor Calibration--Refer to Brake Pedal Position Sensor Calibration
Program Key Fobs--Refer to Transmitter Programming
Setup SDM Part Number in BCM -- Using a scan tool, go to Vehicle Control Systems » Computer/Integrating Systems » Module Setup » Body Control Module. Select Setup SDM Part Number in BCM and follow the on-screen instructions.

it is best left to indesit to program parts will cost more then they can do it for

How do I program the module in an Indesit IWDC6125

indesit washing machines are only made to last just outside the guarentee period these days as the drums are sealed to stop you replacing the drum bearings. much better to buy a reconditioned Hotpoint wm62 they also wash much quicker than any new machine

Fisher Paykel Washer (GWL10) is not powering up

yes motor controller module blew, check pump windings for and discolouation before fitting new module the pump can blow you module,
PS always switch off at wall when not in use

Washer won't spin correctly after fitting new bearings

there are no others sensors in the drum, the module (a circuit board) controls the actions of the timer, it may be one or so wires were disturbed at the time of repair, check all connections, any out of balance sensors would only work with a heavy loaded drum? You did not comment as to the motor / drum action when washing from the start of the cycle?

Fisher&Paykel Washing M/C: Fixed Bearings & then Error 136. This concerns my 25 year old Fisher&Paykel washing machine Model LW035 (Phase 4) In summary, I changed the bearings and completed one entire washing cycle. On the second run, the motor became very sluggish and ultimately I received error code #136, Motor Stall. Poor connections around the stator seemed a likely cause, since I had attached and reattached them. - I cleaned all of the connections to the stator coils - I cleaned the link between the three windings - I checked continuity from the motor control box down to the stator Was a winding damaged? I measured each winding to be 6.2 ohms and no sign of damage A likely culprit was the position sensor. This had failed a few months back and I had repaired one of the rails. However, at the control board I tested the output of the three sensors and each went from 0.5V to 4.9V and back again when I rotated the drum very slightly. When the rotor is not attached, the drum rotates freely and there is no sign that the bearings are improperly installed. However during my latest test, I discovered to my surprise that the rotor was rubbing against the stator! I have cleaned up the stator and slightly rotated it but there is definitely some rubbing still going on. I used a lot of force to remove the shaft tn order to change the bearings. The pump is working properly. In the most recent test, the water valve opened in short bursts, and then finally the machine gave up with Error Code #136. I get the same error if I start at Rinse. All and any help will be much appreciated.
