Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
In every cycle, the water fills and will not shut off causing potential overflow. We have checked the drain pump to make sure it is clean. We have also checked the air hose to the water level sensor for any cracks or holes and that appears ok. Could the problem be the diverter valve or the water senser? Thanks.
Or maybe there is a hole or leak in the air chamber. After checking that blowing into a pipe attached to the pressure sensor does shut off the water I decided to blow down the other tube going to the air chamber. And I could hear air coming out inside down at the bottom. With an air leak here there is no way the pressure transducer will shut off the water hence the overflow. It may be the air pipe way down the bottom or the chamber and I am off to investigate now.

Problem caan be the pressure switch. to test it, put on a length of hose, set machine going and use your mouth to pressurize the hose and water should stop. if it doesn't then pressure switch is faulty.
also the pressure switch hose goes to an air chamber and this can be clogged with gunge

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
•If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
•Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
•Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and
Central Control Unit (CCU)
•Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
•Check Drain Pump
•Check the Pressure Switch
