Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Power switch does not activate

When I press the power switch nothing happens. There is power to the outlet. The washer is plugged in. The switch appears to be broken. Does this mean I should replace the washer control panel or the washer display board?

    Out of balance switch, reach in between the body and the bowl at right rear and you will find a plastic arm hanging down GENTLY wriggle the arm back and forth then try your machine again.

    The power switch does not engage. Is that somehow connected to the "out of balance" switch?

    If absolutely nothing happens when power button is pushed usually means the main fuse inside the motor control module has popped for some reason. Ususally requires the replacement of the motor control module. GWL11 is called a "Phase 6" type module which is brown in colour. Before fitting the module you must check the pump and stator resistance readings by somebody who knows how to use a multimeter. Hope this helps.

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

Crosley CAWC529PQ1 won't turn on.


First, you'll need to make sure you have the proper voltage at the outlet, and the power cord terminals fit tightly into the outlet slots. Based on your post, you most likely have a faulty electronic control board.
Here is the board to order.

I has a Crosley Washing Machine Top Loader. Fill light comes on lid locks then NOthing!


seethis causes and fix it. God bless you
User Control and Display Board If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.
Timer If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this time
Line Fuse If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.
Thermal Fuse If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.
Line Fuse and Holder If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.
Main Control Board If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Incoming Power Problem If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the hom
Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.

Will not turn on


# 1 reason for service call is the machine is not plugged in. Make sure outlet has power and washer really is plugged in. If not, then something inside is bad and needs to be taken apart. If absolutely nothing happens, then switch is bad.

Washer will not turn on. The knob moves but nothing happens when I turn it on. I've checked the breaker, the water, the plug/outlet, and hoses. Everything looks fine. But nothing happens.


If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. 

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Got a hoover washer /dryer wdm 1300 , it wouldnt empty properly, watched the impellor on the pump and some times it would run and then stop , a quick flick with a screw driver and away it went again ,also...


HI CHECK THESE....
Step 1: Make sure the washer is receiving power. Check the cord, the plug, and the outlet. If a wall switch controls the outlet, make sure the switch is working. Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel. If the unit is receiving power and still won't run, press the reset button on the control panel (if the washer has one).

Look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel. If the unit is receiving power and still won't run, press the reset button on the control panel (if the washer has one).
Step 3: Make sure that both water faucets are turned on and that the drain and soap-saver return hoses are properly extended, without kinks. If the washer has a water-saver button, make sure the button is depressed; water may not circulate through the filter nozzle if the basket is not full and the button is not depressed.
Step 4: To make sure the water is the proper temperature, check the temperature selector switches on the control panel to make sure they're properly set. Also check the water heater temperature control. It should be set no lower than 120 degrees F.
