    Thank you for your help. The controller apparently WAS getting a constant "open" command. I unplugged the washer for a few seconds and when restarted it still malfunctioned. I unplugged it and walked away. Came back, plugged it in and it has been working flawlessly ever since. Thanks again...

If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.

Fisher and Paykel top loader washing machine, won't stop filling up with cold water


The pressure switch usually has air in the feed pipe which sometimes gets water into it which then fails to notify the system when to switch off water supply which then prevents the relay to the motor to start.check the feed pipe so it is empty of any water.this will allow the pressure switch to work properly.if the switch has failed you can get replacement part from eBay.

Ok - your code is 50 indictes a faulty hot water valve - question - have connected the hoses correctly - as per your descriptions - it should always be cold 1st then hot water- cold - then hot etc until it fills.

Pays to check this as the fault code is totally opposite to what your saying..

My washer no longer produces cold water, only hot, except for the start of the cycle. The machine will tell me that it's not getting cold water. It doesn't matter whether I set the water temperature at...


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

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling


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.

Fisher & Paykel Washine Machine is filling up hot and not cold?


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.

Wont stop filling


If when you press pause while filling and it keeps filling then you have a faulty valve. If the filling stops then valve is ok.
If you filling keeps going until overfilling the machine which is what i understand is your problem, then most likely that you have a small pinhole in your pressure tube.
