Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

Washing machine makes buzzing noise

Our Fisher & Paykel washing machine has started making an intermittent loud, low, buzzing noise. It often happens during the spin cycle, but can also happen when the washer is not spinning and the door is unlocked. It usually only lasts for a few seconds, but happens frequently. It might be happening when the washer fills, but I'm not sure

    Is the water pump accessible for me to check? I had this prolem and today the whole unit stopped draining or spinning. The error lights i get on my GWL11 US are numbers 3, 6, and 8, all blinking and the continuous beeping.

    Is something like this covered by most warranties? I am having this problem (occurs during drain and fill). My unit is only 3 months old. Could issue be that we use well water?? My unit is a frigidaire FTF2140FS1 front loader

Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

It won't spin until all the water is drained out. The drain pump may be blocked or faulty. Fix the drain pump fault first then deal with the filling issue. They will not be related.

the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

My Fisher & Paykel GW709 Top Loader has stopped working. It stopped mid cycle. I turned it off and back on but it won't even light up now. Ii makes a short buzzing noise when you hit the power button but...


you need to check your pump and motor for shorts to earth, or low resistance readings across windings. the motor controller board will need replacing also most likely.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Fisher and Paykel top load gas dryer makes very loud noises.


You may have something stuck in the blower wheel, or more unlikely something stuck in the bearing(s). Will need a Tech to come out.

It makes buzzing noise and doesnt work


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Noise during spin cycles


GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.
