In Topic: Fisher & Paykel GWL10 - Need Controller Board Schematics and/or Parts List

Thanks both for the replies. The pump looks fine, and resistance measured fine. Unfortunately I can't tell what these blown components drive, but the Diverter terminals are not shorted so I think the Diverter is fine.

If I truly have to replace the board, any suggestions on where to buy from? Again, it really hurts to spend $200 on a 10-year old machine. If I can't find it for less, I may have to just abandon this thing...

Here's a picture of the two damaged components.

Ok, I checked all of the other components (valves, pump motor, etc.), and all resistance measurements checked ok. So, I decided to open up the controller module. Sure enough, I can see two components that got smoked. Once is clearly a MOSFET, and although the part number is pretty much blown away, I think there's enough there for me to tell that it is the same as a nearby part, which is STD2NC60.

I googled this part and found that it is obsolete, but I think i can find a suitable replacement.

But the other part is not so easy. It looks like it could be a transistor, with 2 pins on one side and 1 on the other. I think I can make out "XG..." on it, which doesn't match up with any other 3-pin device on the board. So, I'm stuck.

Does anyone have a schematic or parts list for the controller board?

Thanks!

Thanks DADoESTX. I did exactly what you described and found that the diverter is not diverting. Here's what I did exactly:
  • Got into Diagnostics mode.
  • Pushed the Temp Down button to get some water in the tub.
  • Pushed the Delicate button to turn the diverter ON, at which point the Delicate light went ON and stayed ON.
  • Waited a couple of minutes.
  • Pushed the Regular button to turn the pump ON, at which point water was pumped to the DRAIN (not recirculated).
  • Pushed the Delicate button again to turn the diverter OFF, at which point the Delicate light went OFF.
  • Waited 4-5 minutes.
  • Pushed the Regular button to turn the pump ON, at which point water was pumped to the DRAIN (not recirculated) again.
Sooooo...I suppose I could double-check my earlier voltage measurement at the Diverter terminals. What do you think?
