Thanks for the site; what a great idea. Hope it works for me. Is it alright if I stick to Aus beer while viewing this site?

I have a Fisher and Paykel Washing Machine Smartdrive GW703-U.

Twice I've done “Hot”, “High” loads and burnt out my motor controller. Must be the steam/condensation and I wont be doing that again.

This time I’ve put the new controller in and set the size.

When I power up all the lights come up and the control panel is fully functional. Press the start button and the first light flashes as expected, press it again and it stops. Everything looks perfect but nothing happens. I’ve tried different settings, all hot, all cold and I’ve advanced it to “Spin” and still nothing.

I have no knowledge of how to start, read and interpret self diagnostics, what should I do?

It has a magnetic switch which is activated when the lid is shut, and it sounds like the switch has failed.  The start/pause button is going as the light stops flashung on the panel. P/N in NZ is 426457p, probably the same in OZ.  To replace, you need to remove the main control board as the switch is attached to the same harness as the out of balance switch connections( it might pay to get a new oob switch kit P/N 420313p if it is avaliable as the oob switch will possibly be corroded), remove the 2 bungs on the front edge of the top deck, and lift up.  On the rh side you will see a small white cover with two wires running to it, TA DA, this is the switch.  Just remove the screw and the old switch + harness and fit the new one, making sure that the wires are tightly fitted all the way up the side of the top deck as if the wires fall out and rub through on the cabinet, BANG!!!, one :poison: control board.  As always, if you can see a wire or connection make sure the appliance is turned off.;)

Thanks Kiwi wants to work in Canada (How about Australia' its no too bad here).
The door open switch hasn't worked for years so your analysis sounds very good. Is there any way to bypass the door switch....I like to watch!
