RPS (Rotor position sender) fault. The RPS is an electronic sender unit mounted on top of the motor winding. It tells the main control board what position motor is at for it to start properly and also if motor is actually running. Replace the RPS.

The fuse is built onto the control board. It is not designed to be replaced. My 3 year old machine lost the water pump and blew the fuse. About $375 to fix. I am buying the new pump and will attempt to replace the fuse on the board. I hope there are no other bad components.

You need to be more specific. There are 5 wash lights and two rinse lights. Each have a different number value when working out the error code. Count from left and say what number light is on. Spin being the 8th light from the left.

Error code 40
40. (00101000) Inner Basket Disengage Fault
While carrying out a basket check, the Motor Control Module has found that the basket is
not engaged even though the pressure sensor indicates that the tub 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 basket
2) If the machine is empty of water, carry out a clutch disassembly
procedure (Refer to section8.14) 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.

8.14 Removal of Clutch Mechanism (Spline Drive / Spline
(a) Follow the procedure for removal of Inner
Basket. (Refer to Section 8.13).
(b) Remove the 3 screws securing the spline
driven to the inner basket.
Refit in the reverse manner. Ensure that the
screws are tightened sufficiently with out over

Blockage in drain pump. You will have to empty water out with a jug. Then get machine outside and remove drain pump so last of water comes out. Check for any rubbish in pump, then put pump back and test it.

Sometimes things can get out of sync. Try unplugging the machine for a few hours to rest the code on the board.
