Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Fisheer & paykel smart drive LO8

I washed my car mats (overloaded?). It kept stopping. I took them out and did not do the spin cycle. since then did 3 loads. 4th load, stopped the machine to answer a phone call @ the spin cycle; could not re-start the machine do the final spin. unplugged, re-powered, unit would not power-on at all. Is there a fuse or circuit-breaker? How do I open the panel to check? is there a re-set switch?

This one sounds like a simple one. Try the following in this order:

  1. Close the lid and start.
  2. Advance the timer. (Rotate the dial forward a bit)
If none of these work, let me know and I will give you some other things to check, however I bet this will get you going.

Good Luck!

My fisher paykel eco smart is GWL11 not GWL15

Press "end of cycle" for 5 seconds or more to clear the screen. 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.

Water wont empty

We had the same problem with ours. I took out the steel tub and found there was a lot of lint blocking the pump (at the bottom of the plastic tub). There is a screw holding the pump cover. Once you remove this you can check it properly for blockages.
