Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The cold water often will not shut off even when power is turned off on my Fisher & Paykel GWL08 washer. It must be turned off manually. Is the problem the input valve, and where do I get a new one?

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.
Post your model number( tor.aspx ) HERE and search for water inlet valve >!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=GWL08

Or you can go to an appliance parts store.

F & P, gw712. has error lights --11---1.

I have a code book for GWL08 & GWL10 and if the codes are the same for yours it looks like a problem with your cold water valve. The first thing the book says to do is check your wiring to make sure the valve is connected properly and if that does not take care of it to check the valves to see if the coil has an open circuit. If the valve is okay than they say the motor control module is bad and to replace it. Hope this helps you!

Why won't fisher & paykel gwl11 fill cold water?

If the cold water only comes out at a trickle, you need to replace the valve. I have had to replace the hot and cold water valves on my washer every couple years.

Fisher & Paykel GWL08 top load washer appears a crack in the inside water dispenser

With the lid open, you'll see two white plastic plugs on the top front lip of machine. Pry them up with fingernail to reveal screws to remove. Take care not to let top flop back as plastic tabs may break.
