Fisher Paykel basket disengage error

2 posts in this topic

Hi there - a while back i (stupidly) gunked up my fisher and paykel GWL 10 washer drain and was helped  out on this site - the drain is ungunked now (i took the machine apart per instruction here and ungunked myself) and everything is fine EXCEPT  now i'm getting an error #40 - basket disengage fault, at the finish of the rinse cycle; my code manual states i need to check the clutch or the pressure tube to make sure it isn't blocked or crushed also....could you instruct me on how to do this?  


thanks again,    cheryl

Remove the washer tub and make sure the driven spine is attached to the drive spline with the three retaining screws.  Did you remove this in your last exploratory surgery?  If so, make sure you put it back in the right way.
