Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have had a FP washing machine for 3-4 years.It would periodically stop after filling for the rinse cycle. It is now happening each 3-4 washes. Sometimes if i switch off for 1/2 hour it will complete a cycle all the way through.I can move it on to empty but the clothes have not rinsed or spun dry. Then it will keep trying to drain and not stop. Is this a computer problem? i live Western Suburbs Brisbane , if a tecnician is requred can you recommend one and wwhat do I tell him so he can fix it with one visit? THanks

When the washing machine does not rinse, or the cycle get stuck before rinse, that oftem means that you have a problem related to water filling / water level control.

To start, when the machine fills for rinse, it uses only cold water, and normally takes more to reach the water level.
If cold water hose has low pressure or is kinked the machine may take a long time to advance to rinse.
Check the water hose at the back.

If the water supply is OK, then the inlet valve must be tested, checking that cold and hot inlet solenoids are opening and closing the valve.

If inlet is OK, test the water level switch.

If the cycle can manually advance to rinse and complete the cycle I would exclude faults to timer board or motor controller.

Regards.

    My 5 year old Roper washing machine fills up, washes/agitates the cloths, drains them when the washer get to the rinse line to start the rinse cycle it stops, and all I hear is a humming. The machine will...


    I'm not familiar with roper washing machines so I'll ask the question does it have two fill hoses. Most European machines now only have one fill. If it has two then it sound like the machine takes the initial water from the one fill and the rinse cycle water from another. The humming sounds like the valve for the other fill needs replacing. These are quite inexpensive and easy to fit. Power off.. remove lid ....switch of water...take out valve when you establish which one is affected and replace

    Washer stop in middle of rinse cycle


    All content © 2000 © 2009 Washerhelp
    > Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
    Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

    The wash cycle runs and runs.


    Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.

    The whole process uses about 2 gallons of water.

    Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


    while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

    Good luck!

    My Whirlpool washing machine is not stopping after completion of wash cycle instead it is repeating the cycle again. It is not consistent, but out of 3 washes 1 wash is happening that way...we are manually stopping machine by gaurding carefully when timer shows nearer to completion.

    Washer Won't Rinse (Hotpoint)


    Suggestion: Try cleaning your outlet filter. This needs periodic cleaning, according to your usage. Refer to user's manual re. the cleaning. When it is the rinse problem it usually is the filter block.
