Fisher & Paykel ecosmart GWL11 fill problem

I have a Fisher & Paykel ecosmart GWL11. Several weeks ago, the following problem appeared. During the initial fill cycle (Phase 1, Eco Active Wash), the clothes become saturated with water, and then during the recirculation phase, there is insufficient water for the pump to recirculate the water without cavitation of the pump. Water is recirculated in spurts, and the pump sound changes (every few seconds). This continues for about 4 minutes, and then the fill continues to a normal fill level to Phase 2. I'm afraid this will ultimately damage the pump. What is your recommendation?

Your diverter valve is cloged with lint and not fully closed and is letting wash water go down the drain.

Hi Alan.. usually if there is a problem where the diverter valve is not sensed by the machine control, it will throw a fault code and beep and not complete the cycle. There should be a tech sheet under the control panel. Did you make sure you properly re-connected the two orange wires on your new diverter valve?
I certainly have encountered several over the years where the control stops puting voltage to the diverter in recirculate mode.

If you want to be able to use all the cycles on the machine, then you need a new control board. That is part #420094USP and can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct;
http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=111&productid=26

If you need to do laundry in the meantime, use the PERMA PRESS wash cycle, it should work for you, as that cycle does not use the diverter valve.

Also inspect your water pump and make sure it isnot wet or leaky, as this can cause the machine control to either short out altogether or lose functionality on some cycls such as you are experiencing.

I hope this info is helpful to you.

SOURCE: Fisher Paykel gwl11 washer leaking and squealing

Set the machine on its side and started taking it apart til the problem was obvious. Called Fisher for the parts. A big black seal is out and a bearing above the impellor that cools the motor, we ordered a pump assembly that is on the bottom side of the motor. I am still going to replace the water pump in the drain side, that is a no brainer. Will update on the repair when the parts arrive

I have a GWL 11. Bought the washer and dryer and the same time in Feb. 2006. Dryer fell apart Feb 2009. 3 weeks ago the washers diverter valve failed, I ordered a new one and recieved it, washed one load of clothes and the drain pump failed, order it and have been waiting 2 weeks for the drain pump. They still do not have it in stock, Fisher Paykel or Sears. Tomorrow I go buy a Kenmore or Whirlpool.

Our gwl11 fisher paykel washer will start to fill for about 5 seconds then stops


This is either your lid switch not working or your out of balance switch the latter being located under the large motor controller board under the controll panel.That should fix it.Kind Regards Stefan.
