Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

FISHER & PIKEL SMART DRIVE 601

The cold water fill is very slow . I refered to the solutions for the similar problems to check the hot and cool water flow from faucet, clean the screen and filter and take out the rubber gasket in the water inlets. But after that nothing is improved. Does it mean the valves failed or what? If they are, how much for replace them or whole box as valves are sealed in the box.
Thanks
JOHN

Typically, this problem is caused by the failure of the electrically controlled mixing valve. I don't know your machine but on the majority of all washers, the H/C hoses actually connect to the body of the valve which is often held in place by one or two screws and has 2 or 3 quick-disconnect push-on connectors. Once the back panel is removed, you should be able to see the valve body right inside of where the hoses were connected.

Fisher & Paykel smartdrive 053 fills really slow


Your cold valve could be faulty & need replacing.
Try swapping hot & cold valves to see if it fills faster.

Check your fill lines going into the washer, my guess is the hot line is filled with junk. They have screens inside the end of the fill lines that get loaded with gunk, clean off the screen & your good to go

Fisher & paykel smart drive 601, power to board, won't fill


If it isn/t doing anything at all it could be a faulty start switch on the display panel. Also make sure you can hear an audible click when you open and close the lid. The lid switch on a 601 is actuated on the right hand back of lid adjust as required. Hope this helps.

Fisher&Paykel Smart Drive 601 Both Hot and Cold Water Fill very slowly


Hey there. I've had the same problem recently. It would fill slowly, and then after a while, it wouldn't fill at all. So I got some a new valve. it cost about $NZ30 delivered. You'll need one each for hot and cold. You can get parts from http://www.primedistributors.co.nz/. I think the part you need is 426142. you can check an image of it on the website. Good luck.
