    Power button will not work after we cleaned the drain line of a Fisher and Paykel  EcoSmart GWL15. We have power to the outlet but it is not working.

Tilt the machine to get to the bottom and there is an electric pump that you can remove with no tools, you twist if out. after that is removed you should see what has clogged your pump.. I spent 4 hours disassembling my entire machine , cleaning it, trying to find out what was wrong. And the fix could of just taken me 1 minute.. Next time... But at least I know how to take everything apart now, very easy and simple machine to work on.

You can look here at a video someone made showing exactly how to clean the pump which is a common problem but not hard to do.
There is a service summary tucked under the control panel that tells you how to diagnose the problems. We had to clean ours today & sure enough, the service summary was there. Good luck.

How do I see what is causing my Fisher & Paykel EcoSmart washer to leak water?


If it is leaking when draining this would point to the main seal of the WATER PUMP. (Quite common for older machines.)
The pump can be easily removed by leaning the machine backwards, remove wires and see picture. NOTE: about half a litre of water will gush out so it is best to take machine outdoors. Go to a recycling centre or online auction for a replacement. They can be fiddly to replace.

Also check the clear pressure tube for blockages,
Blow air down the pressure tube to remove any blockages
that would prevent water level from changing.

Pump squeals when emptying water at start of rinse cycle


Possible there is dirt in the drain which seems to clog on the drain pump /valve and so when the drain cycle is activated the pressure makes the noise on the pump.
Check for tips to remove the Pump;

I put heavy wool items in my ecosmart Fisher & Paykel washing machine (approx 9 yrs old) and after it filled with water and drained the water, it beeped unbalance so i added something else to balance...


You should not continue to run the machine until you rectify the issue with the pump. Check the resistance of the pump's coil. It should be 7 ohms for the model GWL15. If the resistance is different, there is a problem with the pump electrically and it needs to be replaced.

My washer goes through the 3 wash cycles but starts beeping and the water won't empty as it reaches the rinse cycle. what can i do?


Possible that the drain is clogged or the drain valve/pump is struck or is not activated by the program controller. If on checking there is voltage on the valve/pump without action then this can be faulty.
remove and check

Fisher & Paykel GWL15 washer won't drain. A latex backed rug was washed in it and I think the drain pump is clogged. How to remove drain pump and unclog it?


Hi There,You could bail out as much water as possible,Then If you lean the machine back against the wall,(with machine unplugged) you could remove the bottom plate (if fitted) and you will see the pump with a fan attached,Try turning the fan back & forth it may loosen the obstruction and you could then pump the water out before removing the pump for a service,A the front of the pump you will see a small plastic locking clip that needs to be held out while you turn the pump anti-clockwise for removel.Note treat everthing to be live on this machine if plugged in.(unplug machine before attemting any procedure) Best Regards.
