Fisher and Paykel GW609 Washing Machine NO POWER

4 posts in this topic

Washing Machine GW609 (Phase 5) does not POWER On.

1) Both 'Motor Controller Board' and 'Display Module' have been checked in another Machine and are OK.

2) PUMP has been checked at 35 ohms and tryed another PUMP (also 35 ohms) made no difference.

3) Check 'Water Valves' both 65 ohms.

4) Checked Earth, OK.

5) Checked LID Switch for continuity, OK.

6) Checked POWER getting to machine, Power is rec'd at 'Motor Controller Board'.

7) Ohms reading at 'Brown and White' PUMP Wires at 'Motor Controller Board' is 5-6 Ohms. Is this OK ???

HISTORY

This machine originally blew an 'IC' on the old 'Motor Controller Board' and has been outside for a while covered but

not off the ground. Had been perfectly ok prior to this failure.

Appreciate Your Assistance.

no this is not ok

it should be 35ohms same as the pump as those wires go directly to the pump

you obviously have a short in the wiring harnes which is rather unusual and the likely reason it blew up originally

it is likely that the new board has blown as well

Thank You

You are CORRECT, there was damage to the BROWN(Live) wire at the base just as it turns to go up against the Outer Bowl.

It was damaged and corroded.

This was corrected and the Machine now powers up. (NO Damage to the 'Motor Controller Board'.)

Unfortunately the machine FILLS continously and does not register on ANY Water level setting or AUTO, to the point where it would

have overflowed if I had not stopped it.

This 'Motor Controller Board' was doing the same thing on another machine,prior to trying it in this one, can only assume the 'PRESSURE SENSOR' is faulty.

good to hear

yes you are right the pressure switch ( transducer) is faulty

maybe you can solder the pressure switch from the old board
