Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

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!

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.

Fisher Paykel washer GWL15

I have noticed this same problem and wonder if it because my FP washer wasn't draining properly and dirty water couldn't get out. See my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". I found one of my husband's socks when I removed the black motor/white plastic housing on bottom of washer. tip washer back and you'll see this electric motor. My post tells how to remove it. then you can look into that small space and see if there is something plugging it.

I am waiting on my replacemt motor, and hoping all the dirty streaks are gone. the water I drained out after i removed the sock was really grimy and gritty with dirt. I'm sure the sock has been holding a lot of junk in the bottom of the tub and it would end up on clothes during spin cycle. My issue has been going on for a few weeks and then the motor finally smoked which led to the sock discovery!

Fisher and Paykel Washer Leaking

For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.

don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.

i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!
