I had the same issue with mine and the coil windings for the pump out motor had rubbed though. I unwound it a little and re crimped a new spade terminal to the end. Works perfect for the last year or so !

Ecs gentle annie

Is it just the cold valve slow do you have a hot valve to swap it with to check the flow rate.
I think there 12volt valves,
The solenoids would be OK just the valve wont open all the way.
The solenoids do come off with a flat blade screwdriver under the solenoid.

The fill switch may have failed or the tube to it broke. Anyway, the machine probably is too full of water for it to start to spin out, so it slips on the belt and that makes noise.
The machine is going to be very heavy if it is overfull, but try to let some water out. Maybe you can just lower the drain hose way down into a bucket and get some water out of it. Once it's low enough, it may be able to pump out the rest. Then you can find out about the fill switch.
If it's not overfull, then some hose came loose or broke.

I have a Fisher and Paykel ECS Gentle Annie GW52-k

Make sure there is voltage going to the valve solenoids. That is what opens up and lets water into the washer. You will have to open up the top of the washer control. The valve assembly is where the hoses screw in the back. I don't have the technical on it but most likely should be 120V. Sometimes the valve goes bad and won't open up.

Hi.I have a Gentle Annie that starts and stops filling with water

It is most likely the lid switch. The switch sits in a plastic bracket which has a lever coming down behind the tank.

If the tank sways and hits that lever, it cuts off the cycle as a safety measure. When the switch is faulty or more often when the plastic bracket breaks, you get this symptom.

Let me know if you need more assistance.

F&P ECS Gentle Annie, Frigidaire & Kelvinator model compatibility

Almost all parts are interchangeable- Gentle Annie and Frigidaire are all the same machines- only parts different are main power board in base of machine, and display board- everything else the same. Motors are interchangeable, as long as the plug connection is the same- there are two different types of plug connection (ie male and female plugs are opposite ways around).

Gentle annie motor wiring

This according to googled results, and somewhat verified by me:

For the Gentle Annie connect the white/orange/green wires together to from a
star point and the three other ends (red, yellow & blue) go to your 3 phase
You can leave the others hanging. Don't form the star point with the wire
that's green with a yellow stripe, that's the chassis earth. The brown,
purple, and brown with black stripe I think are sensing coils, with a star
point connected to the black wire. 1.4ohm each, whereas the main coils are
4.8ohm and apparently rated for 5A.
