Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Open Question

Fisher and Paykel GLW11 washing machine will not fill with water.

Hi. I have a Fisher and Paykel GLW11 washing machine that will not fill with water. I had an out of balance load that caused the washer to move about 1 foot. I redistributed the load and there was about 1/4" of water remaining in the tub. I tuned it on and it seemed to work fine until later it began beeping. It appeared to have the same 1/4" of water in the bottom of the tub. I redistributed the load again (although it looked fine) but then I could not get any water. The hoses are hooked up and turned on. I cycled the start/pause button a few times and the water began coming out so I decided to start the wash cycle over from the beginning. The tub rotated fine as it should at the beginning of the wash cycle but there was no water. I tried cycling the start/pause button, the power switch, and I unplugged it hoping it would reset but nothing worked. All the lights appear to function normally I just have no water.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel Out of Balance

I agree. Told repair shop that i wished i had a duet front loader. have not liked the FP from day one and the price--OUCH! I have a Duet front loader washer and dryer in my 2nd home and love them. daughter in laws have them too and love them.

FP--doesn't hold much. Not supposed to wrap anything around the agitator--how do you wash sheets or blankets or anything large? i take my large comforters to the laundromat. I end up manually choosing high water setting and Heavy Duty on FP to get clothes clean.

Hate this product and would not recommend to anyone.

Neighbor has new FP double oven. She has it repaired so many times that FP is giving her a new one--repairman is tired of fixing and says it is a lemon.

SOURCE: out of balance during wash

Ok you need to check your machine is level- if not adjust feet. You aslo need to check the Bias spring is still attached if not get a new one or re-attach it. The Bias spring is a little spring that connects from the top of the front left suspention rod to the top of the plastic bowl cover (this spring is meant to help stop it going out of balance so easy. Cheers

Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

The counter balance fluid in the top of the spin bowl may have leaked ,Also don,t use auto set your own water level.If you have your original booklet it will show you how to increase the auto water level.Hope this helps Cheers.

We have a fisher and paykel gw711 washing machine that continues to fill with water while it is in the rinse and spin cycle


Hi Robbie just read your posting.Now just a couple of questions.Does the machine keep filling and flood?Can you manually select the amount of water for the wash --eg-- low, medium,or high?Or does the machine drain and fill at the same time?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can rectify this fault for you.

A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

hi, reading your posting it tells me that the machine will fill on traditional wash but on auto fill mode it pumps the water out at the same time it is filling. i"m pretty sure it is your diverter . on auto fill mode it fills a little bit then the pump comes on and recirculates your water by pumping the water from the bottom of the bowl to the top of the bowl over the clothes. on auto fill mode it also activates the diverter to pump the water back to the bowl. on your machine the diverter is stuck in the drain out position so when it trys to recirculate the water it drains out the water instead . the problem could be a faulty diverter, control module or a broken wire.hope this helps, please reply if you need more help. good luck.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...


If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.
