Fisher pakel washer taking too long to wash clothes

I have a Fisher Pakel washer that is taking too long to wash the clothes. It takes 2 hours to 2 hours and 10 minutes to complete a cycle. My water pressure is fine going into the washer, I have cleaned the screens on the water lines and changed out the water lines to the washer. I have checked the black drain pipe to make sure it is only 3/4 of an inch past the u-shaped holder so that it is not siphoning off like the manual says. I called the company and they state it should take about 1 hour to complete the cycle.
Can you help?

    The same thing is happening to us. We've checked that the settings are for a normal wash load and the water flow is okay. The loads are taking 2 hours plus to complete a full cycle with a full load. I tried a small load to see if it helped, with the washer less than half full it took 1 hour and 32 minutes to complete. Is it time for a new washer?

My Fisher& Paykel GWL 10US was take way to long to washer 2+ hrs. The Solution was CLEANING SCREENS to hot and cold water valve. Don't get mad at the washer for something as easy as clogged screens. Over 10 years of almost perfect service!! (Change those Hoses once in awhile and save your self some grief)

How long does it take to fill the tub? if the water, on warm stteting, isn't blasting out fast or if, when set to cold, it's trickling out, your cold water valve is shot. I can help with this problem 'cause I had the same experiences you listed.

I have a Fisher Pakel washer GWL11 and it has developed a small leak under the washer. The cycle stops at rense and just quits. Any suggestions on what needs replacing?


Sounds like it could be overfilling Just a little and while it is agitating it will be splashing over, To fix this you will need to replace the MCU,

Fisher Pakel dish drawer sends F1 alarm flashing. It usually happens when there is a drop or change in water pressure. Have had 3 repairs on this disappointing product. Only repair person for Fisher...


F1 is a flood fault ir happens when the machine detects water on the base of the unit, to clear this fault you can remove the bottom draw and use a towel to clean up the water this should clear the fault, But usually there is only water on the base if the lid is not closing properly, this can happen due to you putting long utensils in and the lid cannot pull down or you have faulty lid actuators witch is probably the case and they wont pull the lid down correctly, So if the lid wont come down properly water splashes over the top and floods the base. :)

When the washer is pumping water in it makes a noise like the pump is starving for water. I have checked water flow through the lines and the inlet filters ar not stoped up.


The only thing I've ever had to replace on that model washer is the pump, and they go out all the time. You have to order it from fischer and pakel directly, and it is extremely easy to replace (can do it with no tools at all) Remove the wires from the pump. Ther is a plastic tab that releases it so you can turn it. Turn it 1/4 turn and it will come out. To get a pump call 888-936-7872 (fischer and pakel customer care)

Fisher pakel washing machine is not draining or spinning what should I do?


The valve is stuck or dirt is in it. To fix blow in the drain hose of the washer about 3-7 psi enough to hear the air bubbles in the bottom of the tank, it might take more then one shot you can blow with the mouth but not with a air hose at 50 psi the valve and hose will not like it. It has always fixed mine, good luck. To check run in spin the last led red the water should run out.

Fisher pakel water saver washer stopped early in cycle and is non stop beeping


www.ths.gardenweb.com/forum/laundry

try this website. I found answers to my questions on it that i did not find here.

repairman who came to my house yesterday said manuals are only available on dvd, not in paper anymore.

saw on the other website that you can order FP parts through Sears. have not tried, so don't know if that is reliable. maybe you can order a FP manual through Sears to tell you how to fix your issue.
