Hi guys thanks for this forum, very handy

I have a problem with my f&p washing machine in that if I push the power button to start it every light

on the board comes on for a couple of seconds and then just the top row starts to disco up and back, no other buttons do anything.I tried turning  the power off and this fixed the problem for 1 wash then it does the same thing I replaced the display board a short time ago and the parts guy asked me if I had set the board to the right model I 've pulled it back out but cant see any switches or anything that looks adjustable

Any help would be appreciated

Call Fisher Paykel and verify the correct part number of the control board for your model.  I'm not aware of setting any jumpers based on model number; there, however, different control boards for different models.

Its not the display board that needs to be set to the machine. It is the motor control module, which is behind the display board. Its a relatively simple procedure that takes only a few buttin inputs to match the controller to the size machine you have. Have you been able to put it into diagnostics to read out any error codes? These machines really are sublime, and fairly easy to maintain. I consider it a pleasure to service them.

Both boards for the series 2 smart drives are blue. To size set (in NZ, unsure if same there) press and hold start/pause down, while holding down, press power, and release both.  This will automatically size, then press power to store(will turn off).  This will eliminate size setting as the fault, it could be one of the other buttons is jammed on and forcing it into 'shop display" mode. Check the location of the board in the housing.  Or the display board could be faulty.  If it hasn't already been fixed, I hope this helps.
