Fisher and Paykel Ecosmart GW15 replace the water sensor?

From reading posts, It looks like I need to replace the water sensor in my clothes washer.

Description: I start the washer, it filled with water (once), and then it shuts down within about 3 minutes. Then it beeps over and over until I hit the power button to turn it off. So I do. Then, I turn the power back on, and start it again, (even making the spin cycle slow or any variation doesn't help) and it starts to spin, but not correctly I think, lid open or closed... And then it shuts off again within 3 minutes. This happened sooo many times. So, then it doesn't drain either... I took the clothes out and scooped out all of the water. 1) Is it the water sensor? 2) How do I fix this?

my warranty is up. it's probably from about 2005-ish, maybe 2004?

I appreciate this forum sooo much, thank you guru's and everyone else!

There is not enough water in my machine?

On mine, it does not swim clothes in water, but certain parts of the cycle, you do see water in the machine.

1) are the clothes damp at the end of the wash?
2) more importantly, are the clothes clean?
3) do you see / hear water enter on cycle start?

My suggestions:

1) loosen / remove the fill hose and verify you have water pressure in the fill hose.
2) read on this forum for test cycle proceedure. Run tests.
3) if it truly had no water, I am sure there would be an error code. Look that code up.
4) Download the manual, and follow their test / fix steps.

Note: the test proceedure, error codes and manual are mentioned by helpers in posts where I have had questions. See if you can look up my previous posts.

Why does my maytag yop loading centennial washer sometimes spin and sometimes not?I can move the washer cycle knob to different cycles and I will still have the same problem

I had the same problem kinda. Does it start to agitate before it fills with water? Its supposed to fill with water, agitate, sense the amount of the load, then fill with the correct amount of water. If it agitates right away then you need a water level/ temperature control sensor. I replaced mine and no longer have the problem of wet clothes at the end of the cycle. The part number is w10248240. Look on you tube for a video on how to replace. The one I saw showed how to diagnose the sensor. The part cost about $90 and it took longer for me to get out my tools than replacing the part. This part goes bad by starting the machine then adding more clothes after it starts. You can also try blowing air down the tube from the back of the sensor. It didn't work for me but was suggested and blowing the air didn't cost anything.

Ecosmart washer won't drain it filled with water, washed and nowwon't drain the water.

you need to vacume out all the water so you make it light, then dolly out the washer to some place you can drain it. now take off the front of the washer and locate your water pump, its attached to your drain line. take off drain line to water pump and see if anything is clogged in the pump. This is most likely what is wrong if it wont drain. hope this helps.

About a week ago I noticed a puddle by the front of my washer. Now it is happening with every load, any size. It seems like the water is splashing up over the bucket and running down the inside of the...

In my opinion
This would be the water level sensor as the water should not get that high were it goes over the top the sensor should cut in and shut the water off at the level you set.
The problem can create more and can be dangerous as water and electricity not good best get it looked at.
