Fisher and Paykel washer won't start

Our washing machine works perfectly once you can get it to start. Thats the problem - when you press the start button, it beeps but nothing happens.. sometimes if you open and close the lid a few times it will work... any ideas how to fix this?

    I brought the GW711 from a second hand store, tells me he had put a new pump in it, worked good one the first load. I turned it all on ok, & set the delay start for 9 hours, I got home from work & the machine had no lights on, the wash hadn't been done & now I can't even get it to turn on, totally dead!!!! Not happy.

    Ours is F&P Excellence GW609 (6.5 kg). When you press the start button it just won't fill water. Had same problems a few months back and managed to get it to work by touching the nozzles that dispense water in the bowl. Today, it just won't do anything.

The problem is definitely in the lid switch. Your machine has a reed switch which is located under the hob on the right side of the tub. There is a magnet built into the lid which activates the reed switch when the lid is closed. You will need to replace the reed switch and harness.

Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU washing machine


keep it simple, make sure water is on to both hot and cold hoses. Trip switches for door (and sometimes soap draws) can prevent machine working. Try asking a few logical questions. Has the machine been moved recently? If its out of level this could be a problem. Check solenoids are working (these are electrical taps at the back of machine which hoses hock up to), to do this try both hot and cold settings. Even try changing water level settings to further attempt to deduct were problem might lie. hope this helps and let us know how u go

Washer won't start. Power is on, pressed power, then pressed permanent press, then water temp, then start. There is a red light on spin cycle and it just beeps and doesn't start.


Hi - if that red led light comes on as you press start - then the display module is faulty - however it's not always the case - often its the motor controller module thats faulty..

Your call - display module first and hope it works or controller.

The manufacturers recommended procedure is to replace the display module (primary) if it still doesnt work then replace the control module (secondary).

Cheers
