Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Taking longer and longer to wash

I am not sure what is going on. My wash cycles are taking longer and longer to wash. It is going through extra wash and rinse cycles. My clothes are not any dirtier or any heavier loads. I have cleaned the filter on the bottom. Is there something else I can check?

most washers on a full wash cycle take about 60 minutes. It will take longer if you use a soak cycle with extra minutes because if you have a soak cycle and you set it for 30 minutes the total wash time will be around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

F1247td is taking much longer than suggested wash time, over double in some cases


Sounds like a heater issue, holding up the timer due to not getting to temperature. Could also be timer, or even pressure switch. Difficult to diagnose without testing individual wash cycles.

The washing machine is taking longer time


You can check that pump filter which is behind the base plinth, also check that the water entering the machine is at a reasonable pressure. If the machine is taking a longer time to wash and both inlet and the outlet of water is ok, it is more than likely a wash side heater fault. Basically, you set, for example. a 40 degree cycle, the heater does not operate and the water never reaches the required temp, the machine ventually times out on the heat phase and then moves on to the rinses or aborts to the end of the cycle.

Towell cycle taking longer than before


The washer only uses a tiny amount of water to do them clothes. If you use more than a teaspoon of HE low sudsing detergent that washer will detect suds and take extra steps to rid the suds. This causes motor problems.

WHY IS CYCLE TAKIN LONGER THAN IT SHOULD? 55MINS CYCLE IS TAKING AN EXTRA 40 MINS.


Could be due too one of several reasons.
The time is subject to various factors including, low water pressure, thus taking lomger to fill, poor drainage, temp of incoming water, temp of programme selected.
The time is based upon premium operating conditions.
Hope this helps.

Which is better a top loader or front loader washing machine?


Front Loading Washing Machine: Fully automatic.
1. Better washing than toploading as technologically proofed.
2. No extra effort except putting cloths and detergent inside.
3. No need to observe in between while washing. Start and forgot. You can go market and come back.
4. No issue if electricity or water went out during washing.
4. Take more water compare to toploading semi-automatic.
5. You can not open it once it started.

Top Loading Washing Machine: Semi
1. Save water and detergent.
2. Need extra effort to put the cloth from one box to another.

Washer has timing issue, says it will wash for 45 minutes and wash for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The cycle says 50 minutes but it ends up taking 75 minutes.


This is really not uncommon. The more and more sophistocated the machines become, the more small decisions they make on their own. I have seen a one hour load take up to 2.5 hours.

If a load is off balanced, it will change the time. If the spin cycle doesn't spin enough water out, it will increase the time, and may still be too wet. (In that case you need to clean out the lint/drain trap.)

If you really want more control and quicker washes, there will be a setting like "Quick wash " or "Fast wash." Theis setting is quite basic and does exactly what you tell it to do, and you can always add and extra rinse, or higher speed cycles.

Kenmores and GEs are the highest reported rate of longer times. Relax. The more you add, ie, delicate, two rinses, light spin, medium dry, the longer it will take. It's just trying to do its job! :)
