Re: Fisher & Paykel Washine Machine is filling up hot...
As nice as these machines are, I've read bad things about Fisher & Paykel reliability. It sounds to me like you have a bad solenoid.
FYI, you should leave the water lines on (both hot and cold) all the time, no need to shut them off unless you're unhooking the machine to move it or work on it. The machine should control the temperature itself.

keep it simple, make sure water is on to both hot and cold hoses. Trip switches for door (and sometimes soap draws) can prevent machine working. Try asking a few logical questions. Has the machine been moved recently? If its out of level this could be a problem. Check solenoids are working (these are electrical taps at the back of machine which hoses hock up to), to do this try both hot and cold settings. Even try changing water level settings to further attempt to deduct were problem might lie.
hope this helps and let us know how u go
It sounds like the fill hoses are inverted. Most of the Fisher washers only fill with cold water after the initial fill. So if the hose are inverted then it will only fill with hot. Beyond this I'm at a loss. Good luck
Check your fill lines going into the washer, my guess is the hot line is filled with junk. They have screens inside the end of the fill lines that get loaded with gunk, clean off the screen & your good to go
Hi just read your posting.Did you remove any wires to the control module which is located under the top panel when you replaced the bearings.Now did you put the cold inlet hose to the water valve marked with the letter C and the hot to H ?These letters are next to the valves.Have you got the Efficiency option button?Can you select a manual water level instead of just an auto fill?Have you tried to put the machine throe a spin cycle?Do you hear any water coming into the machine at all?Please with additional information to these questions and I am sure we can rectify this problem for you.
could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.
WHEN I CALLED FISHER AND PAYKEL PARTS CENTER WITH THE SAME PROBLEM . THIS IS THE REPY I RECEIVED. "THE HOT WATER FILLS IN FOR A SHORT TIME, THEN THE DIRVERTER RECIRCULATES FOR A FEW MORE MINUTES, THEN FILLS THE REMAINING WATER LEVEL YOU HAVE SELECTED WITH COLD WATER. THE REASON BEING: (GET THIS) FISHER PAYKEL SAYS THAT THE AMOUNT OF HOT WATER AT THE BEGINING OF THE
CYCLE IS SUFFICIENT TO DISOLVE THE DETERGENT. AFTER THE DEVERTER CYCLE (THE SIDE RINSE AS YOU CALLED IT) THE REMAINING WILL BE COLD WATER FILL".
HE ALSO STATED MANY PEOPLE CALL HIM ON THIS AND HE SAID IN THE MANUAL IT IS EXPLAINED THAT THIS IS THE WAY THE MACHINE WORKS. SO MUCH FOR ECOSMART
turn off water
disconnect fill hose from tap
examine screen inside hose end for 'muck' blockage
if no fill
replace water solenoid valve
note: cold water valve fails first, it gets most use,
if only using cold water, you can simply swap the hot and cold hoses at the tap, and swap the hot and cold electrical connectors on the solenoid valves, the hot solenoid is no the cold one and the washer can be used, cold only, for about as long as it has operated thus far..
