Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Floor furnace pilot won't stay on.

Pilot went out. While attempting to re-light it, it stayed on as long as the shaft was depressed (more than two minutes). When the depression was relaxed, the pilot went out...tried it three times. Is the pilot too low? It did not seem low. Can the strength of the flame be increased? It's two feet below floor level.

Change the flame sensor (Thermocouple) Then go ahead and fire it up. If the flame sensor is not sensing the flame you will be able to light the pilot then everything will shut off. There is a way to agjust the pilot but 99.9% of the time the adjustment is ok, Specially with a floor furnace so change the thermocouple and you will be ok. You can get one at Ace, Home Depot Lowes, or a local appliance store

Pilot light not coming on just an occasional clicking sound.Very difficult to hold the button down.

You have a gas washing machine? If you are talking about a dryer, shut off gas valve, get a vaccuum and clean burner area well, then make sure connections are tight and the line to pilot light is not crimped, and hold match near pilot light while turning on gas.

I purchased a Whirlpool gas water heater model ND40T62-403 from Lowes in July 2013. The pilot light has gone out on 3 occasions since Thanksgiving. It is out right now. I have everything unplugged and...

Go back to Lowe's with all receipts including the your purchase receipt, the plumber's bills and whatever records you have while speaking to the Whirlpool technician, and raise hell. What water heater is unsuited for your home?? Is Whirlpool crazy? Lowe's would not sell you an inappropriate water heater. You should have done this 3 months ago.

My LG 8050F gets power only to the power unit. But the power does not spread to other parts. No pilot lights showing. Cannot start. There is no evidence of any blown up part. Can anyone help?

This might be dumb but I have heard if water gets on the bottom floor of the washer it shuts down for fear of a leak and flooding the house. Look on the floor and remove the water if any.

Oven Not Heating Up

if the pilot light is working it must be the thermal bulb is not sensing the heat, you can try and use a long nosed lighter and try to heat the bulb up and turn the gas on and the added heat might help it kick on. Give it a try.

My lennox furnace kicks on, then it shuts off

It should have a diagnostic set of leds on the board, with the code list on the door and the control board itself. If it get to the pilot stage and the shuts down its most likely the gas valve. You can check for continuity from mv to c on valve, you should have it. Then with a valtage test from mv to a ground or common as you here the next click of a relay on the board after the pilot has had a few seconds.

Where is the pilot light on the Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Dryer?

Hello gigiknoll
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

This model should be electronic ignition and does not use a pilot light.
The igniter may be faulty.or the gas module may be faulty.
Pilots are a thing of the past!
This requires a tech to test it with equipment.
