Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

No cold water regardless of setting

I moved my washing machine for a few days to do some work on the basement and after hooking it back up, the washer temperature sensor (?) seems to be off as it only will use hot water regardless of the setting. I checked the hook up and confirmed that the cold water is on and hooked up properly. Any idea what this could be? Thanks!

    When the temp of the washer is set on cold the water only comes out either warm or hot.

Can I hook the wash and rinse to cold water hose?


Not sure what you are asking. If you want to wash and rinse you clothes in cold water only, there should be a water temp selection switch to allow you to do that. If you are asking if you can hook cold water hose to both ports on the washer back the answer is yes but it is easier to just cap off the hot side of the water valve on the back of the machine. Most machine water inlet valves are a 3/4 thread garden hose connection. Go to a hardware store or a Lowes/ Homedepot and ask for a screw on cap. They come in both plastic and brass. If you do cap the hot side of the inlet valve, make sure your washer has a cold only setting for wash and rinse and keep it set there. If it gets moved to hot nothing will fill or run.

Can neighbor use washer using cold water hook-up only?


Good day,
Yes if cold wash and rinse are used only. If the selector is set to warm accidentally, water would fly out of the hot water port when filling. Be careful, or hook up another cold water supply to the hot inlet.

Washer was working fine! Moved washer to new house, and now it will run but only with hot water. put washer on Auto controll, and cold cold or warm cold setting, and it wont even turn on.


Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!
