Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

My 8 year old Fisher and Paykel gets to the drain cycle and stops. I let it go for a few minutes and was able to get it powered back up for a minute or two before it shut down again. When I flipped the machine on it's front side, I noticed some green wax on the floor. I'm wondering if the green wax on the floor is the issue. Please advise. Jeff in Orlando

Prob a jammed pump or need the pump replaced.
Try turning the pump under machine (with plug pulled from wall), see if it gets unstuck.

Fisher and Paykel 7.5 washing machine keeps powering off during rinse and spin cycles


The pump has a thermal safety cut out on it.
If the pump gets too hot it cut out.
Just put a new pump in and your all going again.

F4 message on the top drawer, fisher paykel. I clean the filters and arm every week or two.


There 2 possibilities with this error:
1)
  • Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)
  • Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault
2)--4 Flashes--Draining failure. Drain pump, control board OWI or water indicator defect

God bless you

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Fisher & paykel fill up with water then


Yep it sounds like another electronics panel has failed.
We never had this much trouble in the old days with the old electric timer machines.

The machine stops at wash cycle every minute or so


Firstly, the model 708 is way more than 9 years old. More like 18 - 19 years old. There is 2 types of errors on a smartdrive. One is signalled by a single beep every second & the top row of lights will change. The 2nd is a rippling musical sound (like when you turn the power on at the wall) and some lights will be blinking. You need to tell us what sound it is and which lights are blinking or which of the top row lights are on (exactly, count from the right to left and which number is on & which is off) There is no such thing as a reset to do. Once I know the fault I can advise you what to do about it.
