Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

JUST BOUGHT THIS UNIT and it will not wash

The unit fills and then starts to wash but then beeps and the second wash light, first rinse, second rinse, and spin lights are on. If I advance the cycle to rinse it will finish the cycle. Can someone help me figure out what we did wrong in set up?

Re: JUST BOUGHT THIS UNIT and it will not wash

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

WTW4850XQ spins for a few seconds, then quits

Place the unit in diagnostic to do this make sure machine is off turn control knob to the left at least 3 times to clear now turn knob 3 clicks to the right 1 left 1 right all lights should light up do this within 6 seconds if you don't get lights repeat process I do this everyday so be patience once all lights are lit turn to the right until done light is lit press start button you will now see lights flash in varying sequence the way to read this the lit fill/sense light is the f code, wash light =8, rinse =4, spin=2, done=l when fill/sense light is not lit this is the second halve of the code example F7E1 you would have fill/sense lit, rinse=4, spin=2,done=1 F7 code, non lit fill/sense done=1 okay you may have more than 1 code it will continue to read the same code until you turn the knob once to the right the control will hold up to 4 codes at a time once you find the codes we'll go from there

Haier HLP21E Top Load washer keeps beeping & blinking after water intake. It will rinse out the water when 'rinse' pressed. However it does not 'spin' but instead all three orange lights start blinking &...

No spin with alarm means the unit is out of balance.
The troubleshooting manual reads:
"The safety switch acts. The
spinning cannot work (The
indicator flash and alarm goes
off every 10 seconds). If
trouble cannot be solved after
alarming, it will alarm again
every few minutes."

To solve this the load must be balanced:

Make sure to level the machine on a solid floor. Also you may have to redistribute the clothing in the tub for even weight distribution.

Washer will fill and drain but won't wash and rinse

Check for a modular unit in the machine that controls the wash action of the machine. If it has malfuctioned there will be no power for the motor. Check with the spares departtment if your machine has this unit

Getting stuck on rinse light and beeps second by second

Mrs Vargas, if you wash on 'warm' you're using both hot and cold water mixed together. If the cold inlet valve is faulty (not uncommon) the machine will fill with hot water alone. When the machine gets to rinse, it can't advance because F&P machines rinse only with cold water. If the valve is faulty it can't fill. So it stops!...Not a big job for a tech....Good luck....Nomess
