Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Won't Power On

I lucked out today (or so I thought) and found a brand new Fisher & Paykel GWL11 on clearance today at Lowe's.  Usually $599, it had been marked down to $125 because it had been repaired.  (I've gotten these type of repaired-new appliances before there and have never had any trouble.)

The ticket noted that the washer had been delivered to a customer and would not power on.  As a result, is was returned to the store and the repairman changed out the control board (420094USP) and touch control board (421098P).  The store said the problem had been fixed.

As luck would have it, the delivery men delivered and installed it today at my house, and together we discovered it still doesn't power on.  I'm trying to get the situation resolved with Lowe's and the repair company, but things are moving slow.  Any ideas?

    Thanks, but I've tried that several times.  I was finally able to reach the repair service that worked on it at Lowe's.  Not much help, though.  They got the repair man on the other line who said it worked fine after he fixed it (yeah, right) and all I had to do was program the control panel.  I've reviewed the manual, called F&P, and searched the web, but can't find anything on programming the control panel.  I'm thinking that's not the answer.

Water sometimes leaks in the pump motor and shorts out the control board. Lean it back against the wall an see if the pump shows signs of leakage. If he replaced the control with out the pump it could to took out the control again.

Unplug it for 30 seconds then plug it back in - that seems to work

Fisher paykel GWL11 will not power on (yes the circuit is on)


Check the water pump under the machine. These pumps fail, but are easy to replace. Ours was short circuited and actually sparked when the power button was pushed. Same no lights, no power. We had a GWL10 model, but I'm sure the GWL11 is similar.
