Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Balance Issues Recently we move houses including our Fisher Paykel Washer. Since the move, the washer sounds the "out of balance" alarm almost every time. We have to move the items in the washer (during the cycle) as many as 10 different times before we get the cycle finished. Ideas

Depending on the model you have the gwl 10 and 11 have a bal sw located under the console the sw may be engaging causing your problem. ( maybe corroded or shorted ) Or in later and current models they also have bal/shock struts on each side, one of the four maybe worn causing your unit to go out of bal.

Have Fisher & Paykel GWL11 and can't get the washer to spin


Is it pumping out? Make sure the machine is evenly balanced, if it is out of balance it wont spin up. :)

Machine seems to have balance off with every load and beeps.


Make sure that the washer is completely level. If it is not, adjust the foot screws.

Washer constantly goes out of balance


1 option is to wind the back feet out so the washer drum will sit more to the front so as it less likly to hit the OOB switch, other thing is that the OOB switch might have corrosion on the inside of it and in this case if it gets moisture inside it during a wash it is more likely to go OOB, so try replacing it this should fix issue, if not replace Motor Control Unit. :)

Sounds like you could need a new out of balance switch or bracket, also try to make the clothes evenly spread in washing machine on rinse if they clump up on one side of the bowl they will cause out of balance :)

Stops mid cycle


It may be a out of balance alarm during a spin cycle. Re-balance the clothes and hit start.

F & P GW712 - bowl spins, but won't fill.


Read your user manual - but I would suggest that you may not have setup the balance properly. Check the level of the machine and adjust to be as square as possible by adjusting the feet at the bottom. If the water isnt coming in on both hot and cold sounds like a common problem - perhaps the water level sensor is playing up or something else has been knocked during transportation of the machine when you moved house. Check your user manual for troubleshooting. Sounds dumb, but check that 'delay start' isnt selected also. check both hoses filters are not blocked.
