49. (00110001) Cold Valve or Cold Valve & Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the cold valve or both the cold and hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is
that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve(s) is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves and
the motor control module or the pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Measure the resistance of the cold and hot valve coils.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control module.
Action: Replace the Motor Control module.

Fault code 40 info
40. (00101000) Bowl Dis-engage Fault
While carrying out a bowl check, the Motor Control Module has found that the bowl is not
engaged even though the pressure sensor indicates that the bowl is empty. The Motor
Control Module continues to check for 2 minutes, after which time it displays this fault. The
first two areas to check are the clutch and the pressure tube. If these two appear correct,
then the fault could be in the pressure sensor in the Motor Control Module.
Primary Source: Mechanical.
Action: 1) Check that there are no clothes or other foreign objects preventing
the clutch from re-engaging. Excessive suds can stop the bowl
rotating.
2) If the machine is empty of water, carry out a clutch disassembly
procedure and check the spline drive.
3) Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is
not kinked.
Secondary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.

247. (11110111) SmartPump Flapper Fault
The Motor Control Module has registered a drop in the water level during the recirculation
phase of the wash cycle. Water is being drained instead of recirculated. The most likely
cause is that the flapper is stuck in the drain position.
Primary Source: Flapper valve.
Action: Check for free movement of the flapper (replace if broken or
damaged).

Here is info on 248 fault code.
248. (11111000) SmartPump Top Up Fault
More than 6 attempts have been made to top-up the water level in the bowl during
recirc. This then signifies that the flapper valve has not closed full and some water
is diverting to drain.
Primary Source: Poor Flapper Seal.
Action: 1) Clean any foreign objects out of the pump, concentrating especially
on the flapper and drain/recirc port areas.
2) Remove the flapper to ensure no foreign objects exists below and
around the flapper.
3) Check for flapper damage, especially the lip seals. If damaged,
replace.
Secondary Source: Cap not tight, warped, damaged (worn).
Action: 1) Check that the hood/cap are tight. If loose and screws are difficult
to tighten, foreign objects could be in screw boss. Remove pump
fully and inspect/replace if in doubt.
2) Check the cap is not warped or it is not excessively worn in the
area where it contacts the flapper. Replace the cap if warped or
worn.
Tertiary Source: Damaged Pump Housing Port
Action: Check there is no excessive wear to the pump housing port caused
by foreign objects. Replace pump if necessary.
Quaternary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.

Fault code 49 is water valves, But the Aqua-Smart board is outputting the wrong code here, The Smart pump has blown the water valves fuse, A common thing in Aqua-Smart Machines.
The Smart pump has jammed with lint and caused over current to the board and taken out parts on the board that drive the pump.
Best to get a new/recondition board for your machine.

Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading SmartDrive can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for
the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension.
Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the
fabrics attracting lint.

Try to get a Rotor position sensor as they are cheaper.
105. (01101001) Comms Error Time Out
These faults are reported when the Display Module detects an error in the communications
between the Display Module and the Motor Control Module.
Primary Source: Display Module.
Action: Replace Display Module.
Secondary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: Replace Motor Control Module.
Tertiary Source: Rotor Position Sensor
Action: Replace Rotor position Sensor. If this corrects the fault refit the
original Display Module and/or Motor Control Module.

WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
12.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading SmartDrive or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet
clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
12.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash
water. Cold water below 20oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature according
to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat and oil
based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash
better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent than
soft water.
12.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading SmartDrive can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for
the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension.
Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the
fabrics attracting lint.
12.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading SmartDrive can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the
fabrics. If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check
the instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times
may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent.
Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white
specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
12.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is
recommended that SmartDrive is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher
powder and left to soak.
12.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that SmartDrive is periodically filled with hot water, plus
detergent and left to soak.
12.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colourfast clothes separately. Non colourfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
12.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load SmartDrive by wrapping clothes around the agitator.
