Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Fisher and Paykel Smart Drive washing machine is cantankerous. Sometimes the wash programme will advance (after waiting a good while) and sometimes it will wait until beeping makes me try again. Pulling plug out sometimes works. Filling with water is usually no problem, but the agitator then doesn't begin. Also stops after agitating, no spin. Takes all day to do a few loads of washing.

    No, the water doesn't heat up, the machine is attached to the hot water tap. Water goes in and out properly, the same as always, no change. How do you check the control board?

    The control panel cover has been taken off and everything appeared normal - clean and dry. What next?

This sounds like it is a hardware issue with the machine. I would recommend calling the Fisher and Paykel support and having them look at it.

Check if water is flowing in regularly, if it is self heating check if element is working.
If this happen only on hot water cycle check the above and temperature sensor.

If is not related to heating , and inlet and drain system work, test the control board.

You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for

Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller

Fisher Paykel washing machine Smartdrive 703 Advance, Power and Start buttons are non responsive when pushed. Is there a part that can fix this. Does the control panel have to be replaced?


Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive beeps and stops during rinse cycle. If I hit pause and wait and restart it eventually continues. It seems like it has problems detecting water level.

usually it is the Motor bearing that goes, but not always, Smart drives are notorious, for these motor problems. But sometimes, it can be something caught, in the drum.
