Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Just put in a new diverter valve. machine will not recirculate the water during wash cycle it just sends the water out through the discharge tube. the diverter is not shifting between recirc and discharge. could the control panel be bad?
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;
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.
