G'day oh knowledgeable ones,

I have run into the RPS error code and know that I need to check out the rotor position sensor wiring and the sensor itself. My questions are:

1. Does the whole machine need to be disassembled (basked out, tub out, invert tub, etc) or can I get access by just tipping up the machine to go at it from underneath?

2. Does the rotor have to be removed to get access to the RPS, or can it be removed with the rotor in place?

3. The FP_GWL03US Service states the following on page 57:

13. Unscrew the rotor by using a 5/8 “ (16mm) socket.
Lift the rotor clear, and place in a plastic bag.
What is it that I am unscrewing with the 5/8" socket exactly? The plastic-appearing "nut" at the center of the rotor? And do I just hold the rotor still by hand while I am doing this?

This is the first Fisher-Paykel that I have worked on, so please be gentle....

Thanks,
Tink :tinkerbell:
