Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Start up Fault

My Fisher and Paykel (Model:MW511) flashes and beeps when I turn it on. It won't start a cycle and none of the functions can be programed. When I push the start button the beeping and flashing stops, but nothing else happens.
The spin light (red) and two of the lights to the left are the ones flashing.

Thanks
John

    I can't find a trouble shooter in the console to determine what the blinking lights are telling me what the problem is. Could you tell me where I can find the sheet or a manual.

    Thanks

    Why does everyone assume it's the board? In 99% of these problems, its due to a loose sensor connection, a blocked pump or something equally simple. Go for the first options first and save yerself $350. Roddy

There should be a trouble shooter in the console the blinking lights will tell you what the problem is and the common issues are listed on that paper.

Fisher and paykel start button does not actuate. The panel works, but just won't start the cycle


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Size setting
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size.
The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg.
The low water level LED identifies 6kg.
The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg.
If the product has not been setup before all 3 LEDs will be on.
To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button.
To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button.
This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.
