Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher & Paykel Washer

1 Answer

Machine won't start

I have a Fisher & Paykel GWL03 (or 08 as it it known in the USA) the machine powers up as normal but will not start any wash cycle. Checked all switches and in diagnostic mode, ( I can manage to get in there at least but I have no codes) I can get the pump and the solenoid, both hot and cold, to work. After switching the machine out of diagnostic mode all the wash cycle lights light up.

    The lid switch was not making, as a result the cycle would not start. Remove the panel housing, two screws at the back. Facing the machine find the plug with a black and blue wires, trace this back to make sure it is the switch wires, this runs toward the front of the machine down the right side ( assuming you facing the machine ) cut the wires near the plug end, join and insulate. That solved my problem at least, and I hope it saves you lots of dollars. I love my Fisher&Paykel.

Hi there
i'm not sure if the fisher and paykel machines are any different in new zealand compared to where you live, but the only thing i can think of if it isn't displaying a fault code is if this machine is fitted with a reed switch(these make sure the machine stops if the lid is opened during operation) this may be faulty and staying open causing the machine to stop when the lid is closed. Hope this helps.

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

No problem really but our charity has been given a fisher paykel eco washing machine with no instructions. Great really but what we want is a simple operation sheet that we can attach near the machine so...


Pretty much just turn it on & it will do most everything automatically.It will auto sense the water level for you & pretty much do everything itself based on the weight of the clothes..Press (Power Button)..Then press (Start button)..& Bobs your aunties live in lover! Sorry humour.
