    just put a load in to wash and noticed the odor yet again and came here to do a search to find others. I would really like to hear of anyone's solution.



    thanks,

    when I open the top after clothes have been sitting for half an hour after wash cycle it smells like sewer. We've had the drains checked and the vent lines checked.... is it possible that there's mold/funk or standing water in the machine?

    I had my hubby remove the tubs to check for mold. A little brown "gunk" was at the bottom of the outer and around the pump. We cleaned the areas out. Pump area always retains water. Our water does not have an odor. We have a front loader upstairs without an odor.
    So far I have tried bleach, baking soda/vinegar combo, Tide Washing Machine Cleaner (3 separate packs), and dishwasher crystals in hot water wash. The smell still remains, albeit faintly, around the tub area. The door is left open. I use HE detergent 2 tbs and no softener. What more can I do??

Try running a hot wash with no clothes in the machine add a little washing powder with it. Make sure it does a full cycle

What does fault code 30 mean on a Fisher and Paykel washing machine Model GWL15/IWL16?


it means that the two electronic boards in your machine are out of sync and need to be reset. just turn the machine off at the wall for a minute and then back on. if this doesn't fix the problem, you will need to replace one of the boards, which one is unknown until you try.

Intuitive ECO Washer IWL16 Code 37


sounds like you've got something blocked in your pump. There's live wires under your machine near the pump so be very careful not to electrocute yourself. Best to get the repair man out and have him explain this time what's going on. I'd get a Fisher & Paykel authorized serviceman who knows what he's doing - call Fisher & Paykel with your zipcode and they'll give you some numbers to call.
