Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Will not advance from fill cycle

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?

    In the middle of a load, washer started beeping every second. Tub filled with water but could not get it to advance to spin cycle.
    Tub seems to have dropped to bottom of machine.

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.

Fisher and Paaykel Smart Drive 708 not working once filled with water.


You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller
OOB switch Is where the grey plate is on this picture.

Size setting
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size.
The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg.
The low water level LED identifies 6kg.
The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg.
If the product has not been setup before all 3 LEDs will be on.
To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button.
To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button.
This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...


If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.
