F&P EcoSmart-Circuit board problems

When you hit the start buttons, it just starts beeping. It worked fine and then the other day just started doing this. The lights stay on a few seconds after unplugging it. Then when you plug it back in and hit start again, it just does the same thing. Is there anything I can do myself to fix this problem, or am I going to have to get a new circuit board?

I think it is circuit. It's just blank nothing comes up to start. The control button is just out. and cannot start machine without it. This started acting funny a few days ago the screen was dim and it...

There is water and electricy involved here and so, while it does sound like a circuit board, it probably worth getting a washing machine repair person to look at it. Getting a 240v shock is not much fun....

What do you mean by 'out' (as in the 'control button' and 'pane'l)?

Fisher and Paykel EcoSmart GWL15 Machine won't agitate or spin - two yellow lights come on, and machine beeps every second or so. This happens even with the power off.

It sounds like you need to re programme the machine.
With the machine plugged into the wall and turned on and the headset turned off this is what you do.
Push and hold down the start button, while doing that you need to then push and hold down the power button.
Hold them down for about 5 seconds, during which time you may a series of up to 3 beeps.
Then release the buttons.
Turn the machine off and then on again followed by the start button. Allow the machine to then run the complete cycle.
This should correct your problem, if this doesn't then you may need to then look at replacing the computer panels.

Fisher Paykel ecosmart purchased 3-4 years ago.

I too am having this problem.  I am checking out if anyone has a solution.  Somewhere someone said to change the "Fill switch"  I don't know what that is or where it is.  Does this help?  If you have found anything let me know.

Lots of beeps

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Problem with frigidaire washing machine

I've read in a product review that Frigidaire put out a service bulletin regarding the electronic timer circuit board in these machines. Apparently enough of these boards failed to prompt a factory response. With this in mind, you should call an appliance repair center and ask them if they're aware of this Factory Service Bulletin. In many cases like this, where a part is manufactured defective, the repair could be free to you.
