My fisher and paykel washing machine drum is very off balance

I can see one only small spring attached to the top of the drum and the inside of the washing machine and the whole drum is sitting too far to the back right corner of the machine.

Without your model number I can't answer for sure, but for most models of f/p washers, this is the easiest way. First lift the lid and once it is straight up, pull it towards the cealing, it should slide straight up. On the right and left hand sides there are generally 2 "half moon" shaped peices of rubber. Pry these up with a small flat head screw driver. Underneath are phillips screws. Once these are out, the top of the washer should lift up from the front and let you get to the tub (and springs) underneath. If you are still having trouble. Drop me a note back.

SOURCE: Blocked filter in Fisher & Paykel washing machine top loader

Fisher & Paykel washers do not have lint filters inside the tubs as they are designed to drain away any debris from the wash during the drain cycle.

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:

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Nick

Small red clip appeared on rim after being off balance. spring attached.


There is a small red clip that holds a stabilizing spring (notice items 7 & 8 in the graphic) which attaches to the top of the tub cover at the front, left side. You might be able to push the tub assembly to the back, right corner to better see this, but it is easiest to reinstall with the top of the machine removed. If the clip is broken or the spring stretched they will need to be replaced. The unit can work without these parts, but is more likely to experience out of balance problems.

Hi Craig
Was the drum was banging with no load in it.
It can be two things suspension rods or the bowl is faulty.
All the water has leaked out of the ballast rings on the bowl,
causing it to go out of balance.

Small spring is hanging red clip on floor tub dose not look level water coming out around sides an top when it spins


this is one of several drum balancing spring clips and it broke or popped-off. This will for sure make the spin cycle shake the drum very much and spill water. Nedd to open the machine housing and replace/repair the spring.

Gw708u spin cycle wont work


There are 3 common causes of this, 1: OOB (out of balance)switch is faulty - to get to this you must remove the display console cover and the main control module and it is underneath in (common microswitch, test with a multimeter) 2. Lid Reed Switch has failed (Bridge out red and black wires in 4 wire plug on right side of motor controller module to test- machine will spin when you select spin cycle when this is bridged if this is the issue) 3. Broken Balance spring (simple but common - left front corner of machine attached to neck ring on top of drum and to the suspension strut: you can bend the end of a broken spring to re-attach)

I hope you can make sense of these instructions. i am better at doing than telling

GWL10U2 tends to get out of balance no matter how big or small the load is.


i would have a look inside of it as there are some springs that hold the drum in the right place if one of the springs has broken or fell of this is the reson its jumping round the room on spin out of balance,,,its an easy fix if you can do the job yourself,

Spring detatched from somewhere , water leakage and no spin


The spring is one of the balancers that keeps the motor and drum assembly from moving around too much. It can easily be replaced if you look underneath the machine.
