Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Fisher & Paykel GWL11 With fault code 56.

F&P customer service says it is a "check bowl" code. Any suggestions? Will not go through the rinse cycle and when I manually move to next one it jumps to spin and still keeps draining.

Had this code come up on mine, couldn't figure out exactly what it was but when I did the diagnostics for the hot and cold valves and the drain valve the hot water water valve would humm but wouldn't do anything. For the time being I have been running mine on cold water only and it has been working fine. Hope this helps a little. Also, the service manual is located under the control panel it will you a lot.

Error 40 Fisher Paykel washer gwl11


40. (00101000) Phase 1 to 5 - Bowl Dis-Engaged Fault
While carrying out a bowl check,
the Display module has found that the bowl is not engaged
even though the pressure sensor indicates that the bowl is empty.
The Motor Controller continues to check for 2 minutes after which time the display this fault.
If restart is on this fault can take up to 4 hours to diagnose.
The first two areas to check are the clutch and the pressure tube.
If these two appear correct,
then the fault could be in the pressure transducer
in the Motor Controller.
Primary Source - Suds
Action - Too many suds, too much detergent has been used.
Restart product when suds have disappeared,
or select a deep rinse option.
Secondary Source - Mechanical
Action
1. Check that there are no clothes or other foreign objects preventing the clutch from reengaging.
2. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked.

It is stuck on the first rinse cycle and no spin.
Do you get an error code 56.
Error code 56 is mostly common problem with these the motor controllers, SD11 & SD12 brown boards, 3 x 332k resistors near the small transformer go low & need replacing with a 1 meg Ohm resistor will fix the problem. get a qualified technician to replace these parts.

Beeping sound when it reaches rinse


Does It just shake bowl left & right, it will soon give you fault code 56.
Well its a board problem you will need to get technician to fix this board, three resistors(R129,R130,R131) need to be changed for a 1MegOhm resistor.

GWL11 fisher & paykel with error code 56 (lights 3,4,&5) what does this mean?


This code usually relates to the bowl not disengaging proper to agitate - few things to check - is there enuff water in the machine? - is the clothes packed to one side kinda? - remove the display cover to check if you don't have a kink or the tube for the water level controller hasn't come off - remove the tube & blow into the "bowl end only" attach & try it out - you haven't lost a sock lately or something, it could be stuck between the two bowls? - machine not syphoning? - if none of these work then the RPS is gonna be the most likely problem.

Fisher paykel washer


Sounds like you could need a new out of balance switch or bracket, also try to make the clothes evenly spread in washing machine on rinse if they clump up on one side of the bowl they will cause out of balance :)
