Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

How do I reset my Fisher Washing machine size?

I have replaced the control panel, the motor panel, and the water pump but it still flashes the last wash cycle light and spin cycle light when I press the lid lock and when I press it a second time it turns the machine off.

To set the size switch, turn the power on at the power point and off at the console. Press and hold
WASH TEMPERATURE UP then press POWER. EcoSmart will give 4 short beeps
and the pattern of LEDs will change.
To lock the size into memory.
 Press SPIN SPEED UP, the SPIN HOLD LED is on for 7.5 / 8.0kg (650mm wide).
 Press POWER to confirm the setting and also exit this mode.

SOURCE: Washing Machine stopped through cycle and now will not turn on

Unplug!!! NOW! I drained the water using a common garden hose, fill the hose with water and have some device turning it off like a trigger nozzle on the low end. Detach from the supply and put the supply end in the center of the tub under the softener dispenser. take the trigger nozzle off and watch the water drain without cups and buckets. Then wring out the clothes and put them aside, use the hose trick again for remaining water. Now get under the washer and detach and reattach the brown and white lead input to the rinse cycle motor. She is made in France so be gentle. Plug the machine in and set the machine down and turn it on. Push the >> button until you reach the spin cycle if it starts you have fixed it!! Put the clothes back in open a bottle of wine and try again.

SOURCE: F&P washer lights on and beeps

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

SOURCE: My Aquasmart WL80T65D washing machine,

Hi just read your fault.Now from the information in your posting the lights that are on when the machine is beeping are the 3,4 and 8th lights.Now these lights are in a row of 8 lights and you started from the left.So from left to right the lights that are lit when the machine is beeping are 3,4,and 8.Is this correct?If it is correct then the fault on your machine is called COLD VALVE FAULT.The 3 reasons why this fault occurs is, 1st the wiring to the water valves is faulty,the 2nd is the cold water valve is faulty, or 3rd the control module is faulty.Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter so I can help you narrow down which is causing the fault.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

My wf310 1100 spin will not do a high speed spin


hi, there may be not enough water draining out on the last cycle before it spins so i'd give the pump a good luck over also check the filter if it has 1, and check the drain hose. the other fault could be the module control board this controls the motor speed hope it helps

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into.

Machine runs wash cycle but fails to drain and spin. When door unlocks I remove and replace wet washing then switch on rinse and spin cycle. This seems to work but is no long term answer.


Hi, The washer will fail to spin if there is too much water in the machine, check the filter on the machine is not clogged or blocked if it's not then the pump could be suspect, normally you can hear it running on the spin cycle. it could also be the motor brushes are worn.

if its none of the above I would suggest that it maybe the pressure switch or pressure switch tube blocked other than that the last resort is the programmer or motor control panel.

Hope this helps.

Assuming your pump is now ok could be the motor or brushes more to the point that is making it not spin too well. Brushes on this will last about 5 years after that well worn......

Frigidaire front loader not going into spin cycle


If I am reading this correctly the problem you had was a noisy spin. Then you changed the water pump and the struts. After that you get a flashing code 43.

Lets back up a bit before changing parts. There are balance switches on the struts that need to be checked out. They all should read the same in a static condition.

I would also start checking connectors to see if they were loose or cross connected.

It just seems odd that you did some needed maintenence then all of the sudden you need a control board. I don't believe it yet.

Go back and look at the connections and check the balance switches on the strut(s) that you changed.

I think your fix is going to be an easy one.
