Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Getting stuck on rinse light and beeps second by second

I am having a problem with my washing machine. It gives me the "help beep", but not the musical kind. Its like an alarm kind of beep. Second after the next second. I go to see what light is flashing and its got the last washing light on and all of the lights from rinse to spin, but they are not flashing (they are just on). Its like it gets stuck at that point and when I try to help it along by sending it to next stage which is rinsing, it gets stuck again. I have already leveled it and unplugged it like the book instructed me to do, but the problem continues. Also, there is a big puddle of water coming from under the washer. I read that it means water level to high so I put it on low and still there was water and it was a big load. I tried redistributing clothes and still there was a puddle of water. I always have put it on automatic (for 4 yrs exactly) and have never come across this problem. I don't know if one problem has anything to do with the other problem, but something weird is definitely going on and I don't know what to do. Please help as soon as you can because with three children, I definitely need my washing machine!! Thank you for all your help!!

Best Regards -Mrs. Vargas

Mrs Vargas, if you wash on 'warm' you're using both hot and cold water mixed together. If the cold inlet valve is faulty (not uncommon) the machine will fill with hot water alone. When the machine gets to rinse, it can't advance because F&P machines rinse only with cold water. If the valve is faulty it can't fill. So it stops!...Not a big job for a tech....Good luck....Nomess

3 lights and loud beeping


When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Sounds like your out of balance switch is corroded. It is located underneath your gold motor controller board.

F & P washing machine GW709AU not competing rinse cycle and then beeps and flashes light.


My Whirlpool washing machine is not stopping after completion of wash cycle instead it is repeating the cycle again. It is not consistent, but out of 3 washes 1 wash is happening that way...we are manually stopping machine by gaurding carefully when timer shows nearer to completion.

Try pressing "rinse" + "pre-wash" buttons together for over 5 seconds. It will lock. Repeat again for 5 seconds, it will unlock.
