Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
During a load on the "Favorite" cycle (full load/hot water) the washer stopped. I went in to get clothing and there were suds and water on the ground. I unplugged the washer and cleaned up all the water. When I was done, the washer would not turn on. No power at all. My husband checked the power at the outlet and to the power module and those are both fine.
Hi and welcome to FixYA!
Sandy you might have a blown control board, but it may have been caused by a leaky pump. With the machine empty and unplugged, have your hubby tip the washer back and look up underneath the machine and check the water pump for signs of leakage. It is an electric pump and sometimes if the leak is bad enough, it will short out the coil in the pump and that can cause the control to shut down too. Sometimes all that is needed is to replace the pump but oftentimes the control board is taken out along with the pump.
That wahswer has a 2-year parts and labor warranty. If it's over 2 years old, you can get a service manual and any parts you may need here:
I hope this helps you and good luck in getting this issue with your washer resolved.
