Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Unplug the machine have someone tilt the machine back and look under the machine for a little fan on a motor give it a turn to see if it spins it might just be sticky or it may need replacing.

My fisher and paykel washing machine will not finish its cycle with a minute to go,


Can you tell me if the w/m is pumping the water out.The washing machine will not spin until all the water is out.
I would need more information ? If you tilt the washer back on a 45degree angle,you will see the pump,looks like a black fan blade on your right side.the windings should look shiny' copper' not burnt looking or white,which indicates a water mark.See if you can move the black impeller and remember to up PLUG the washing machine?

I have a Fisher & Paykel GW609AU washing machine


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

Fault code 00XX000X on GW612 washer


Hi just read your posting.This fault code indicates you have a COLD WATER VALVE FAULT.The lights you marked with --x-- are the ones that are lit.Is this correct?What you need to do is to test the valve coil for OHMS resistance.It should be around 60 to 63 ohms.The water valves are located under the top panel.Please reply to tell me how you got on or if you need further assistance.

I've got a fisher paykel gwl10 top load washing machine


Check the pipes leading to water pump for wetness also the door seal,If all pipes are dry and look ok then it could be due to the water seal and bearings braking down.
