I have a fisher paykel washer that wont go into diagnostic

Customer Question

I have a fisher paykel washer that wont go into diagnostic mode. Last time I used it it worked fine. I put a load in it, it wouldn;t start. Now it beeps when I plug it in till i hit start and the lid lock button lights but nothing happens. If I unplug and plug it back in after some time has passed it just beeps, I cant put it in diagnostic mode because I can't power it off

Unfortunately your control board has just shorted if it starts beeping from the time you plug the washer in. That is why it won't go into diagnostics and you'll need to replace the control board in order to fix the issue I'm sorry to say.

any idea how much
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.

It depends on the model number but it's usually about $200-300 for the part.

I don't know how to rate the answer as I don't know if it's accurate. I have been charged $37. I have ordered a new control board. if it turns out to be the issue, you will get and excellent rating.
