Our neighbour has that brand today. Theirphilba wrote: I had the bad misfortune to buy a fisher-paykel washer. Their controllers burn out if the motor jams.
I'm giving up on the FP.
By the way. never ever buy an FP product. what a nightmare. There are similar stories to mine all over the internet.
previous washer failed immediately after road
work on our street, apparently the water pressure
surged and blew out a hose that flooded the
electronics. (Insurance paid out).
They have also had an FP motor controller fail, I
did some technology gazing on the PCB, which
is water cooled! Had sone sort of low R wire
wound resistor with heatsink and many (six to nine)
TO-220 devices on a rail (FETs?).
I don't recall what they did to get a spare - my
neighbour is quite capable of module level
trouble shooting and repair. He did source other
parts at a local (third party) parts emporium,
not sure if those parts were for the FP or it's
predecessor (a US brand).
Had I been offered the defective PCB I'd have
enjoyed reverse engineering and trouble shooting it.
OTOH, I'm glad I wasn't distracted from my other
