SOURCE: fisher & paykel washing machine fault codes

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.

SOURCE: iw712 fisher and paykel washer has fault code 37 w...

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

SOURCE: F3 fault code on fisher & paykel wall oven.

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.

SOURCE: fisher and paykel model WL26CW1 what is fault code

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

How do you resolve Fisher Paykel fault code 249

From Service Manual for 249 error

249. (11111001) SmartPump Timeout Fault (No change in the water level)
While draining, the water level reading from the pressure sensor has not changed for 3 minutes.
This fault will generally be caused by a problem in the pump system, from either a blockage, or restriction in the pump system. This fault will also flag if the machine is 'By-Passing'.
Primary Source: Pump System
Action: 1) Check that the drain hose has not been kinked.
2) Check the length of the drain hose. A 1-meter extension
hose of the same diameter fitted to the existing drain hose is
the maximum allowable length.
3) Check that the machine is not pumping to a head that
exceeds the pumps limits (2.4metres is the maximum head
4) Remove the inner bowl and check that the pump hood hasn't
been fitted around the wrong way.
5) Check for lint streaming from the pump hood that may be
blocking the pump cap inlet.
6) Remove the pump hood and cap, check for lint, grit and
7) Check for free movement of the impeller and that the impeller
hasn't come off the rotor.
8) Check for free movement of the flapper (replace if broken or
9) Check for lint and foreign object in the ports of the pump

I have a fault code 249 from my Fisher and Paykel 8kg washing machine. What does this mean?

I didn't know the codes went this high! it will be a motor controller fault I would suggest, as all other faults above 140 are motor controller.

This fault is normally as a result of the pump not starting. This fault is usually caused by an
object that has gotten into the pump, and is either under or on top of the impeller, which is
causing the motor to stall when it is trying to start.
Primary Source: Pump Stator Windings Open Circuit.
Action: Measure the resistances of the pump stator. For more information
refer to the AquaSmart service manual.
Secondary Source: Pump System.
Action: Follow procedures as for Fault Code 249.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.

What is error code 136 on a fisher & paykel IW709AU top load washer

136 fault is 'motor stall'...Quite often this is a broken wire to the motor. However it could also be a Motor fault, or Rotary Position Sensor problem. Water damage can cause this fault as well. After a visual check for broken wires or water damage, and if your machine is in good condition, you should consider a tech....Good luck...Nomess
