Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Cold water problem

My GW511 will no longer pass cold water during the cycle, and beeps if cold or warm washes are selected. Hot water washes can be chosen, and hot water comes through okay. The hoses are connected, but the machine was unhooked two weeks ago to repair some tiles behind. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Cath

Re: Cold water problem

More than likely that your inlet valve is faulty it needs replacing thats the more common fault for water not going into the machine

There is a hot water valve & a cold water valve on the Dexter T300 machines but it is a 2 coil valve. does the hot water valve supply only hot water or does one side provide water to perhaps the...

supplies hot water when needed, cold water when needed. and then warm water when needed. so the second coil is for warm water. it basically mixes the hot and cold water.

When going to wash with my GW11 it stops during the was cycle and the cold and hot water light blink and the machine beeps

Hi just read your posting.Now, when the hot and cold lights flash at the same time it means that you are not getting enough or no hot or cold water.Remove the cold and hot inlet hoses from the machine end and put the ends into a bucket.Now turn the taps on to see if you have water coming out the hot and cold hose and if the water pressure is adequate.Try a cold fill on the wash cycle and see how it goes.please reply and let me know if there is water coming out of the hoses at a good pressure and also what water temp do you select on the wash cycle.Looking forward to your reply.

WPXH214A Water Temp: Any selection that has Warm

The cold side of the water valve is either clogged or not opening. Take the cold water hose off of the machine and see if the screen is clogged. If clean you may need to replace the water valve.

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse

while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

Hot water goes into cold water washes

It is normal for the machine to cycle between hot and cold water when filling even if selecting a cold cycle. The reason for this is because even a cold cycle requires the water temperature to be 78F for the soap to break up efficiently.

During the cold months the water in your pipes is probably less than 78F so the machine will need to add some hot water to bring it up to this temperature. Basically, it is adding cold and then hot water to maintain a temperature in the tub of 78F for cold water cycles.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Need to set the washing machine for hot cycle, cold rinse

In owner's manual, go to Machine Information/Care and Cleaning/Cleaning the Inside of Your Ecosmart for a total hot water wash fill:

Press POWER button
Press and hold Favorite button for a few seconds until you hear two quick beeps.
Select Permanent Press cycle.
Select HOT wash. (Yes, you can do this in this mode.)
Press Favorite again to store the selections.

It really works!

Water temperature

It sounds like your water inlet valve (also known as a Mixing Valve on some washers) HOT solenoid is sticking open. When you select either a hot or cold wash cycle, separate solenoids open or close to allow only cold water to enter the washer on the cold wash cycles and hot water to enter on the hot cycles. If the hot solenoid stays open, you will have hot water mixing with your cold water during the cold cycles. The result is warm water. I would recommend you replace the water inlet valve. This is a job the average DIYer can do. Please post back with your model number and I can assist you with locating a part number and/or give you specifics on how to access the valve to replace it.
