Question about Washing Machines
I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU Smartdrive Excellence 6.5 Washing Machine that would start then stop then start then stop a few more times before eventually beeping.
I fixed it by bypassing(joined the white and yellow wire) the trip out switch which is located under the control module(one screw to remove).Now it Works.

37 is drain error..There could be electronic reasons, but the most common problem is that there is a clogged pump or something is jammed in the pump impeller... Empty the machine of water and lean back against the wall so you can get access to pump, which is clipped to the bottom of the drum..Try turning the fan and see if the pump is blocked'/jammed.....Disconnect the wires and rotate the pump motor anticlockwise...It will be prevented from turning by a small plastic latch. Unlatch and remove pump motor...Remove any detritus and refit pump motor....If the motor resistance is less than 33 ohms (230volt) or 7ohms (110volt)..the pump motor itself might be the cause of the fault code, and should be replaced......This is a very simple job for a tech...Good luck....Nomess

on these ovens the f-3 can sometime be incorporated with the f-4 error code also so here is the code and the things to look for both ok ?
F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor. Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control. · Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace.
If all above is ok replace control.

Hi, although the fault code 249 does not exist in the repair manual and in all Fisher and Paykel washer series.
But i have come across different people who had the same fault code 249 on this same washer but the code was associated with different problem on the washer. While the code was associated with spinning problems on some, it was associated with draining problem on others while some complained about not working at all.
So you need to get a repair tech around to check the washer out and determine the main problem with it before proceeding to repair. You just have to ignore the non-existent 249 fault code
