Question about Fisher Paykel Eco IWL16
We have error code 43 on F &P washing machine - does anyone know how o fix this? Thanks
The micro switch or the lever that activates it seems to have been the cause of the Error Code 43. Have re-seated the switch in its holder and ensured the activating (out of balance) lever is moving freely. The switch appears to be OK and now it is all re-assembled, the Error Code 43 is gone. Machine is operating normally again.
Out of Balance Switch was located below the right hand side of the computer board (module).

F & P Intuitive Eco Washing Machine Code 43. I followed the instructions from of an entry on this site to look at the out-of-balance switch behind the computer board. (I can't find this advice again to add my findings.) One of the two connection points into the switch was badly corroded. I cleaned the terminal with an automotive points file then sprayed both parts of the connection with WD40.
The machine is now working OK and the code 43 message has gone.

The out of balance switch is playing up which is located under the right hand side of the computer board. This can be bypassed by joining the two wires togeather which will get it going straight away without swapping parts, but it will not stop when out of balance so you will have to manually stop it after that. Best solution is to replace the micro switch.

Who can replace micro switch and how much it cost?

Carefully remove control console, then control board. Take note of which connector came from which terminal! Balance sensor is located under control board. Remove with care. Check that little button (size of pen top or pencil lead) is moving in & out freely. It is spring loaded. If it sticks, replace it. Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
F17 indicates no water coming into the condensing chamber during drying.
Unplug the appliance.
Take the top off.
Check to see if the condensing chamber below the heating chamber is blocked.
