GWL 10 is off but pluged in, water hooked up every thing fine. Then all of the sudden It starts BEEPING and the second led (64) and the second from the last led (2) on the wash process display light up. My service Summary pamflet does not list this as a code. I have pushed power and it clears but it will come back again and again after a few minutes or an hour or tomarrow untill I unplug it then it stops. I have tryed to retreive the code and nothing comes up, unless I am doing it wrong, other than that it decided to overflow friday not just a splash either, durring a wash cycle. help!:shock:

Open the control panel and you'll find the tech sheet inside. It has code deciphering as well as instructions on putting the washer into diagnostic mode.

Been there done that. "My service Summary pamflet does not list this as a code." I have also run the diagnostics and came up with nothing, no codes in the code retrievel mode.

Lyle,  on the reference material I have on this model, it states that the code you are showing indicates that the motor controller has detected a problem with the pressure transducer.   Primary source of the  problem is the motor controller and the solution is to replace the motor control module.  Now this is based on the code you posted. (01000010).  Hope this helps you out....Ron

Ok Thanks Ron, I Thought it might be something like that. the wierd thing is it is intermitten. Like ihave gone through 3 loads without a problem. But befor it would also stop in a load and wouldn't re start until you unpluged it. Do you know how much a motor control module runs?

Help!  I'm having the same problem as this with my GWL10.  When I open the top control panel, I DON't have any diagnostic sheets to help understand codes.  I downloaded your pdf of the diagnostic mode (from another thread) but it doesn't list any codes either.  Can you post them?

Hi Guys,

just confirming Ron's explanation for fc66. Definitely the motor controller and only solution is to replace it . Fault code has been added since the controllers were released.

One of the things about the diagnostics in these machines is that if they do any subsequent cycles without a problem they move the fault record back a stage so it can only be accessed by a download to a laptop. Also they record any user warnings but these also can only be accessed by download.

You can differentiate between a user warning and a fault by the type of beeps. A user warning gives the ascending ripple of beeps while a fault just gives a constant monotone beep.
