Question about Fisher and Paykel (IWL12)

1 Answer

Gw612 The cold water keeps running into the machine even after the machine finished the cycle. I turned he machine off and on and it helped the first time, but problem came back and turning off and on doesn't help. Can't hear that typical click that it used to make when water was turning on or off.

Your cold water valve has failed and needs replacing, quite an easy fix. To get to it first unplug from wall, next remove water hoses from the machine, next lift the lid up and then just pull it off, next remove the two Phillips head screws at the of the rear of display console, lift off then unplug from motor controller, valves are now visible and are the parts which the water hoses where removed from, if they are blue in colour you will need to replace both hot and cold valves as the blue ones are a single unit but if they are white in colour you can replace the one that is not working as they are separate units. When removing the valves it will pay to cover the brown motor controller computer with a towel so as not to accidently get any water in it when removing as they do tend to hold a little abit inside. You can source parts from fisher & paykel you will need to quote the model number which is GW612 and the serial number aswell with that model as there can possibly be two types of valve available for that model, so keep them numbers handy when ringing them. Make sure you have display console fitted first aswell when putting it back together before fitting the water hoses just to make sure you don't accidently get any water on main computer board as this will kill it completely.

I had the same problem.... It would stop on the rinse cycle and beep.  Check to make sure you can hear the water pump running or if you can just hear an electrical hum and then it quits, it may be a problem with the water pump.The water pump can be accessed by removing the tub, reach down the center of the agitator and remove plastic bolt, remove the stailess steel tub and then remove the plastic oval shaped cover at the bottom of the main tub to access the pump impellor.  Make sure the impellor turns freely, if it does not you may have a problem with the pump motor.  We had a gold chain go missing and it showed up wrapped around the pump shaft causing it to bind at times.  It took me two tries to fix it but now it runs 100%.

The small leak may have been enough to blow the fuse under the control panel.
I had the same trouble with my F&P smartdrive 701.
Take off the control panel by undoing 2 screws and you will see the blue plastic control box in the tray on the machine (not the other blue circuit board box under the push buttons). Open the control box (1 screw and click open) to see an ordinary fuse. Hopefully this is blown and the new fuse, a clean up of leaking water, and some plumber's thread tape on the hose connector to stop future leaks, and you should be up and running.
Good luck.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Nick

My F&P GW601 stops during final rinse, and beeps an error condition.


  • I just fixed a F&P GW612. There was a darning needle stuck in the drain motor pump stopping the propeller from spinning around. I fixed it for my mum by watching a couple of You Tube videos. Easy job to do. Took me about 1.5 hours including drawing out the water from the drum with a bucket & jug first. Lay the machine on a soft mat, remove the motor pump from underneath, clean it out. (You could find a foreign object such as a coin, cloth, rubber band etc.)
    Put it back together & test if it's pumping out water at the rince cycle by doing a low water wash cycle. So happy, job done & I saved my mum some money!!

Cold water won't stop before rinse cycle


if it fails to stop running only at the rinse part of the cycle it is probably in the timer as the solenoid valve has to cut the water off when the washer fills for the wash cycle too. fills for wash cycle and cuts off water, washes and drains, refills for rinse cycle and water just keeps running? does this every time you run it? that's in the timer. bad solenoid (water inlet valve) would keep running even on wash fill up. hope this helps.

This sounds like your water fill valve is bad and will need to be replaced.

Cold water constantly runs even when the knob is pushed in to turn washer off.


If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing. The cold side can fail independently of the hot side.

Cold water runs continuously at end of cycle


If yo9u were to unplug the machine at that point and the water continues to run in you have a bad water valve. If it stops when yoou unplug it, it may be the timer. Would have to test to see if voltage is present at the valve in the second scenario,. Water valve part# is WH13x10024 @ $51.00

Our washer dryer is leaking water after the drying cycle. Everything seems to be fine just after the cycle has finished but in the morning the floor is covered in water. It seems to be coming from the...


Hi. I take it that the machine is of the condenser - dryer type?

In these machines, during the drying cycle, warm air is circulated inside the drum and a cold plate is either splashed with cold water or has cold water running through it, causing moisture from the clothes to condense on the cold plate - just like moisture in a room condenses on a cold window pane on cold days.

If your machine is continuing to fill up slowly with water after it has been switched off, then I would suspect the cold water inlet valve isn't closing properly. This is likely due to a build up of grit inside the valve.

If you turn off the cold water supply you will be able to remove the cold supply pipe from the machine and - hopefully - see some of the grit on the filter gauze. The grit possibly causing your problem is already inside the elcetically controlled inlet valve, so it may need to be removed and cleaned or replaced.

You should be able to check if this is the problem by just turning off the cold water supply to the machine. No supply means no water can get into the machine, so it shouldn't fill up overnight.

Before removing the filter down at the bottom of the machine you could turn the machine on to a spin or pump out cycle - that way you shouldn't need wellington boots when you removed the filter :-)
Hope this helps a bit. If not, add a comment and I will try to help you further. D.

Cold water continues to run during entire wash cycle


Adrea, sounds like you need a new valve. When it's doing this leaking, unplug the washer. If it's still leaking you know for sure it's the valve. Part number for the model posted is 22002360. Catriver..post back.
