Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
I have a GWL08 and water is dripping into the tub from what appears to be a mixing valve at the top of the inside of the unit. We have hard water and the valve appears to have a buildup. What is this part and can I clean it or does it need to be replaced?
You are right, it is called the water inlet valve assembly. I will attach a photo for reference. You can try to clean the small metal screens inside the opening on the valve, but the problem is most likely in the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve will need replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
