Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water temperature is inconsistent

My top loading machine is 3 years old. I have problems with the water temperature. I put it on hot, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't, mostly isn't. Hot water will enter machine for a few seconds, then switch to cold, and this is when it's on a warm to a hot setting. Put it on cold, sometimes temp is warm. I have disconnected the hot water hose and there is plenty of hot water. What else could be the problem?

    pain in the behind!



    any ideas???



    Thank you

    I'm trying to get ALL hot water for a knitting/felting project - and it just isn't hot enough. I've never had this problem with my old machine. Any ideas of what to do? Thanks.

Hey there sounds like your hot falve is faulty, if it is faulty they tend to either switch off and not open to let water in, or not open at all, get a service tech to look at you hot valve.

Check the solenoid valves. If it's connected to hard water, the minerals build up inside and won't let the internal plunger move.

Maytag washer/hot and cold water


Some whirlpool washers have had A similar problem. They had a intermittent water temperature switch issue. Sometimes they put hot water in when cold was selected. This is probably the same problem as yours. I would replace the water temp switch.
