G'day

We have an 8 year old Fisher and Paykel GW608U, when you switch it on to do a wash, the lights on the panel illuminate normally for 10 seconds or so then it switches itself off.  Is this worth repairing ( IE cost of replacement parts) or are we better off to cut our losses and seek a new machine? 

Thanks folks

jbk

Do you start the wash, then it switches off?  Or does it not start the wash and then switch off?  And does it make any noises  before it switches off?

Hi

The machine is switched at the power switch - normal flickering of lights and series of beeps.  Once a wash is selected - ( any wash we've tried all combinations - hot, cold, short, long, spin) it starts the cycle for a few seconds then it loses all power, and switches itself off.

 

Thanks

jbk

It sound like the motor controller is faulty, but 2 things to check if you have a multimeter, unplug th w/m, remove the switch panel by removing the 2 screws on the back and check the inlet valves( around 65 ohms each) and remove the 5 wire, red, yellow, blue, brown, white plug from the controller.  Across any sequence of the r, y, b wires it should read the same.  If neither of these is a problem then it is probably the controller.  Check with local parts agent on price, F&P p/n 426204p, or  you can possibly get rebuilt one for less than the price of a F&P. Good luck!!:)
