Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Fills slowly and does not max spin

I am actually enquiring about the GW 703. It appears to function but for the fact that it fills very slowly. I can ocasionally detect that it BEGINS to fill normally but within a short time it reverts to slow fill. And it also spins below the max speed. The filters have all been checked and are clear. There is a setting somehow attained by presssing various buttons in particular sequences that resets the machine's micro-processor. I have used that in the past but now lost the sequence.

Re: fills slowly and does not max spin

We found that there was a controlling switch "thingamebit" that sets the water coming into the machine, and a part was just replaced. The part cost $40 but the service cost $90.

Cut back your detergent. Too much can mess with your pressure sensor and causr incomplete spins. Never fill to thr max line.

There is always water in the drum even after a laod but after it sits empty the tub fills with more water

This might be a problem with your locking mechanism which is preventing the washer from actually performing a complete spin cycle. It will drain and appear to function but the high speed spin never actually takes place.

Water is not filling up.

turn off water
disconnect fill hose from tap
examine screen inside hose end for 'muck' blockage
clean screen
reconnect hose
test washer
if no fill
replace water solenoid valve

note: cold water valve fails first, it gets most use,
if only using cold water, you can simply swap the hot and cold hoses at the tap, and swap the hot and cold electrical connectors on the solenoid valves, the hot solenoid is no the cold one and the washer can be used, cold only, for about as long as it has operated thus far..
