Question about Fisher and Paykel Aquasmart wl80t65c
30 secs in to a spin cycle the bowl becomes very off balance to the point of hitting the internal shell of the machine. This stops the cycle and asks for the load to be re-adjusted. As it only happens with in 30 secs its doesnt allow the cycle ever to finish and i dont believe it has anything to do with the load. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Unless there's damage to the machine it is the load. Make sure you aren't washing to small of a load. People do not realize how fast washers spin to extract. Just like they use tiny weights to balance your car tire, it only takes a little bit of weight to unbalance it.

I had the same problem. I unplugged the machine for a while (overnight) and it then worked properly when I plugged it back in. Probably just a circuit board issue that was cleared with the power removed.

Read your user manual - but I would suggest that you may not have setup the balance properly. Check the level of the machine and adjust to be as square as possible by adjusting the feet at the bottom. If the water isnt coming in on both hot and cold sounds like a common problem - perhaps the water level sensor is playing up or something else has been knocked during transportation of the machine when you moved house. Check your user manual for troubleshooting. Sounds dumb, but check that 'delay start' isnt selected also. check both hoses filters are not blocked.

sure- hopefully you have a bit of room to move your appliance a bit. lay down on the floor, if able. use a flashlight. you should see 4 nylon or metal feet that the washer sits on. they'll have threaded bolts that lead into the bottom 4 corners of the washer. don't know how old your machine is, but if things look rusty, a little wd40 sprayed on them will help!
have someone help you lift the end of the washer opposite the way the axis of the drum is tilted. jiggle the drum a little and observe whether it becomes more centered. if you can, stick a piece of 2x4 , or 2x2 under that edge and turn the pads in a 'lefty-loosey' direction. this will raise one edge. take out the wood or spacer, and check the centering. you may need to mess with all 4 'feet', to get it right.
make sure your floor/platform the washer is on is solid!! if it's rotting out, check that your water connections are not leaking, and your drain hose is properly seated! good luck.

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

i think that 1 or more suspension rods r faulty. lift the lid and at the front of the machine u will see 2 plastic covers, remove the covers and undo the screws underneath. now lift the front of the hob up gently and u will see the suspension rods. they r easliy replaced. but first see if they havent just popped out. if they have just popped out look at the other 3 and refit to how the others are.if u need more help or u find another problem reply back and i will help u more.good luck
