Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Fischer and Paykel EcoSmart top load washing machine

I start the machine, put it on cold/cold option, the water runs in, swishes around, drains, the first green "wash" light goes out, water starts running in from the HOT hose and the machine shuts down and starts beeping. If I press start/pause the red light on the lid lock comes on, and if I press the start/pause again nothing happens. I have to press the power on/off switch and the machine shuts down and comes back on with all three green wash lights on. I manually move it to the second wash button with my arrow button and it starts washing again and finishes all cycles without further problems. Anyone have any idea what is wrong? This is a relatively new machine. I got it about a year ago and I have been happy with it so far, but this is driving me crazy.

Thanks!

SOURCE: washer will not spin

I'm having a little trouble understanding the question because of the spelling, but this sounds like a typical lid switch not making contact either by the depressor on the lit itself or the switch is broken. try depressing the switch with a screwdriver and see what happens. The lid switch will be in a little slot in the top inside where the lid closes.

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel Ecosmart washing machine spills water.

sometimes too much detergent, or extra cleaners like oxy clean) will cause lots of foam which will cause the water level sensor to misread, or foam over the top of the drum. if this is not the problem, you will have to tilt the machine on its side and look for loose or damaged hoses. the play in the tub will not cause leaking

SOURCE: I have a fisher & paykel ecosmart washer no water

Please make sure that your water supply lines are properly connected and turned on. Also, there are typically small filters at the end of the hoses where they connect to the washer. Check those and clean them if necessary. Since the hoses will be disconnected at that time, flush the lines by running the water into a nearby drain or bucket.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

SOURCE: washing machine errors

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I only have a hose attached to the cold water tap and inlet valve of my Fischer & Paykel top loader washing machine as I only do cold washes, this hadn't been a problem until recently, when th


it could be that the water level got to high and came out of the valve you could try putting a cap on the valve and see if that works and if it does not then it might be a bigger issue.

I put heavy wool items in my ecosmart Fisher & Paykel washing machine (approx 9 yrs old) and after it filled with water and drained the water, it beeped unbalance so i added something else to balance...


You should not continue to run the machine until you rectify the issue with the pump. Check the resistance of the pump's coil. It should be 7 ohms for the model GWL15. If the resistance is different, there is a problem with the pump electrically and it needs to be replaced.

My Fisher and Paykel EcoSmart top load washing machine is slowly filling with water. Help!


I am assuming that you have already made sure that your hot and cold water taps are fully open.
If not, then check those first.
Otherwise try this.
First, turn off the hot and cold water.
Remove the hoses from the back of the machine.
Turn the machine to face you and do a visual inspection of the screens on both the hot and cold water valves.
If there are no screens, your valves may have lime and hard water deposits, or they are simply too weak to fully open. Generic, as well as OEM water valves are available on-line to replace them.

Have you checked the lid micro switch under the motor controller which activates when you close the lid to start the machine?

The lid switch is bad on your washer. Either replace it or bypass it.
