Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
Have had washer for going on two years and have this reaccuring problem from the beginning that the machine will become unbalanced no matter how balanced we make the load. Have found the right rear support rod stuck compressed after loads and had to manually unstick. Have verified with service tech on two occasions that system is level. Have instructed service tech to order new spring rods and problem went away for 6 month's and then returned. rotated rods and problem went away for a few weeks. Have not put another call due to it now being out of warranty and the techs in this area have very little knowledge of this unit and I am the one leading the troubleshooting when they get here.
At the very top of the bowl is a fluid filled balance ring, I would say that all the fliud has leeked out into your wash over time and now you fluid level is low or dry , what i did is drilled two 8mm holes one on each side of the balance ring then pumped it full with 5 tubes of cheap and nasty grey plumbers silicon (only inject in one side to avoid air bubbles in bal ring keep pumping until the whole ring is full let half a tube or so squirt out the other side to get rid or air bubbles , let it dry for 48 hours cut the silcon flush with a sharp knife then all sweet as bro .
