Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher Paykel Intuitive Eco Washer IWL15
My eco smart model from 2001 continues to attempt to fill but no water stays in the drum. When downstairs I noted that as it is filling it is also draining. This happens in all cycles EXCEPT permanent press. I was told by a repairmen that it probably was the diverter valve and if not that it was the circuit board. Cost was 150-300 depending on issue. I am handy, and Fisher paykels dont have a lot of hardware. Is it the diverter or as one of the older post stated is it the inlet water valve. Water does go in but drains at same time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to do the service myself if it is as simple as the diverter or inlet valve. Do you know where to buy parts? I live in Southeaster Wisconsin.
I had the same problem with my Fisher and Paykel washer. I replaced the diverter valve and it seems to be working fine. (Although I have only run one load so far.) I ordered the part from Fisher and Paykel. It came in 5 days. It was under $25, and it was simple to replace. Just make sure you get all of the water out of the washer first. There is a surprising amount underneath that has the potential to cause big problems if it leaks onto the pump.

Check your drain hose behind the machine. This should be approx 3 feet from ground level; then into the wall standpipe. The fix behind should not be air-tight. Your pump pumps the water 'over' this height. This may be silly.....but just check.
& rate if helped pl....................or 'thanks for trying' & your prob will be back here on the net for further solutions by anyone else.
