That is fault code 136
136.
(10001000) Motor Stall
The Motor Control Module has been unable to start the motor. Possible causes of this fault
are: Faulty motor harness, faulty or jammed motor, seized bearings or seals, faulty Motor
Control Module, faulty Rotor Position Sensor or harness.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Measure/check the motor harness, connectors and motor for
discontinuity. This can be done by taking a resistance measurement
between phases of the motor harness at the Motor Control Module
end. If an incorrect reading is obtained the reading should be taken
directly from the stator.
Secondary Source: Motor.
Action: 1) Check free rotation of the agitator and bowl by rotating by hand.
Bearings and seals may be seized.
2) Check the Rotor Position Sensor and associated harness for
water, mechanical damage or corrosion.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control Module.
Action: If the primary and secondary checks pass inspection, then replace
the Motor Control Module.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel GWL11 Top-Load Washer troubleshooting

I've had my washer for about 8 years. I experienced the same problem - pump stopped draining the machine. I called F&P and "Patrick" told me that I need to 1) unplug the machine, 2) tilt up the front of the machine, 3) spin the pump (plastic blades) until they turn freely (usually counter clockwise) but I turn it both ways till it turns freely, 4) plug the machine back in and press the buttons to get it back where it was - this has worked every time to get the machine going again. I do a lot of "dog laundry" and I'm sure the rugs/dog hair cause the problem. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: washer will not drain

90% chance that is the pump is pumping water at all, there is blockage between the tub and the drain pump. If there is no water coming out of the drain line. either extremely clogged(odd) or pump motor is bad, and windings are not allowing rotation.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel washer GW712 won't spin

There is an issue with your drainage area. Best to remove the pump and check for the obstruction in the line or at the impellar.(If the water is not completely drained, the pressure switch wont send a low level to the timer to allow a spin).

Lights 3, 4 and 8 come on and washer won't function


GWL11 (Phase 6 model)
(Lights 3.4.& 8 = 00110001) Phase 2 to 6 - Cold Valve Fault
The Motor Controller has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that indicates the
cold valve is faulty. The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not been connected correctly. OR the 24 volt cold valve internal winding has open circuited. Check resistance of 64 ohms across terminals

The third, fifth & seventh light come on when the washer is trying to fill with water at start of wash cycle.


Hi just read your posting.Sorry to ask you this but could you confirm the lights that are lit.Starting from the left of the machine to the right which ones are lit when the machine is beeping.Is it the 2nd and 4th or the 5th and 7th ---etc---?The reason I am after this information is there is no fault code with that number.Looking forward to your reply.

MW511 top loader washing machine. 3rd & 4th LED lights are lit and beeping sound is heard. When Start/Pause id pressed, the above lights go out and Lid Locked lamp comes on. When Power button is...


The third and fourth lights from the left indicate a failed motor controller (error code 48) If this is the correct fault code you will have to replace the motor controller. However before that is done all the electrical components which can effect the controller must be checked as well...Best to call a tech...Good luck Nomess
