F&P GW603 Aussie Model Washer

27 August 2012 - 10:29 PM

Can't enter Diagnostic Mode, can someone please help with this issue...

When I try entering Diag Mode by turning the machine on at the wall but off at the machine, hold down the Wash Temp Down button and press the Power button. All the lights come on and after a few seconds (about 5 seconds) all the lights go off, except the Water Level High & Low lights, they are on...

This happens everytime I try to enter Diag Mode.

I have completed a short cycle to make sure it's not stuck in a cycle and then tried entering Diag Mode again, but the same thing keeps hapening..


Thanks in advanced..


CPAP Machine repairs

24 February 2010 - 09:17 AM

Hi Guys, does anyone know of any Forums that deal with repairing CPAP machines? Or maybe someone knows where I can get hold of a Service Manual so I can repair it myself?

I live in Sydney, Australia and have a Fisher & Paykel (HC234AEA) CPAP Machine that needs to be fixed. I took it to my local repairer and was told that as it's 5 years old now, they are not worth repairing.. It costs over $1500.00 for a new one and being a pensioner that sort of money is impossible to come up with...

So I thought of you guys and that's why I am asking for your help here...



F & P GW603 Washer won't go into Diag Mode

26 November 2009 - 08:54 PM

This problem has been here for a few weeks and I'm still looking for help in sorting it out and solving it..

When I try and go into Diagnostic Mode (as per manual) all the lights come on and stay on for 3-4 seconds then we are left with 2 lights lit up - Water Level - High & Low. No beeps, no sounds at all and nothing else lit up.

The problem I'm trying to solve is, the machine won't complete a cycle (any cycle) without human intervention. It gets to the rinse cycle light and stops. It beeps (but not on all instances of this problem) and leaves us with the following lights lit up:

Rinse off - yellow light on - Spin light on and Red

Hot on and flashing
Warm on
Cold on and Flashing

To get it to complete the cycle (any cycle) we have to manually advance it to the Spin cycle. Then it completes the wash cycle.

Does anyone have any ideas as to the cause and the solution???



F&P GW603 is not beeping at all and stops during rinse cycle

05 November 2009 - 10:45 AM

Hi Guys, our F&P Washer - GW603 has developed a problem. It works OK until it gets to the rinse cycle where it stops working. To get around this all we have to do is press the Advance button once to move it to the next step in it's cycle and it works OK again.

When I try to enter Diagnostic Mode all the lights flash and after about 5 seconds they all go out and leave the High & Low Water level lights on. No beeps at all are heard.

Any ideas, I'm thinking the Motor Controller board, as that's where the Beeps come from right?



Fisher & Paykel GW508U - diagnostic codes required

30 September 2009 - 09:51 PM

My sister has a F&P GW508U and it had blown a yellow motor controller board. I purchased a replacement board adn fitted it as per instructions to set it to the right size machine. After running a short cycle to make sure all is well, I turned it off and tried to run another short cycle to make extra sure it was all working as it should.

This time I get the following LED code when I enter diagnostic mode:


I haven't come across this one before and need to know what it means...

Can anyone please help out here
