Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
Hi Please help! I have a Fisher and Paykel MW511. The tub doesn't seem to fill with water at the start of the wash, although there is clearly water coming through the hoses. It would seem that the water is simply draining straight out as though someone's forgotten to plug the outlet. The machine would then stop filling altogether and beeps intermittently until I push "start" again. It is then a lottery whether the machine will fill properly or not. It is an intermittent problem, occurring maybe once every 3-4 times I use it. Anyone has any suggestions?
Check your drain hose to make sure you have not sealed the top of the standpipe (drain line), or shoved your drain hose too far down in the pipe. If you do not allow for an air gap, your washer will fill and begin to siphon through the drain line. It is common for folks to seal the standpipe or shove the drain hose down in the line too far in the belief that it will prevent overflows, or get rid of that nasty drain smell. This can be bad because it does not allow for the proper air gap to keep the water from being siphoned right out of the machine. You may have a tight fitting that doesn't siphon every time which may explain why the problem doesn't occur all the time. Double check to make sure. Hope this helps.
