Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

2 Answers

Went into laundry room and washer was full of clothes and water but had shut off. Computer would not turn on even being unplugged for several minutes. Emptied clothes. Drained water. Removed inner tub and made sure drain was clear (had this problem before). Everything is OK, but machine will not turn on.

    I emptied all of the water out by hand. The machine wasn't leaking. The drain is clear. I have removed the clothes. It simply stopped working and will not turn back on. None of the lights were flashing I noticed it had stopped, but that was hours after I initially started it. I can't get any lights, any "beeps" or anything out of it. I checked the outlet and it is working fine. My guess is that it was overloaded and automatically shut off. I am wondering if the computer needs to now be reset.

It sounds like the motor controller module is dead. Check power directly on the motor controller module and also check the connections between the dispaly module and the motor controller module.

    Leave the machine unplugged for a couple of hours to make sure it resets.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. There wasn't any water leaking out. I emptied the water out of the tub using a bucket.

Amana top load washer overfills with hot water and wont stop unless you shut supply off. NTW5400TQ1


Okay you say only hot water if you unplug does water still come in if so bad inlet valve if it does it on both then the pressure switch is bad or there is a hole in the tube that goes from tub to pressure switch

One piece agitator wraps cloths


When loading the machine, load towels, sheets or jeans with an accordion fold instead of putting the laundry in a circle around the agitator. It helps to put the clothes in at the twelve o'clock position, then six o'clock, then nine o'clock and then three o'clock. Repeat this sequence until the washer is full.
The laundry can circulate much better and get cleaner too.

I need a detailed diagram for my Amana Washer model #ALW540RAW


The pressure switch sends the signal that tub is full and agitation should begin. As a rule though pressure switches are long lasting parts. Usually the problem is in the tube that goes from the switch to a bulb or box on the side of the outer drum. The hose can become disconnected, for example if machine was recently moved, or even a severely unbalanced load. Sometimes a tiny piece of lint can obstruct the hose from the bulb end.

Water sensor not working. Started a load of Laundry and the water did not shut off therefore flooding my whole Laundry room. How can I fix this myself?


Hello,

Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug or turn off circuit breaker ,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking,it is what to replaced

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps

I have a HE3 and I would like to know why it had water in it this morning when I went to put laundry in it?


The first possibility is the water valve in the machine is not sealing and it dripped water through the valve into the machine since you last used it.(there are four solenoids on a mixing valve) Something may have lodged, valve may be going, may go away, may get worse, flood laundry room in rare cases.(suggest turning off the hot and cold water house lines between use at the shutoff where washer is connected)

Second is the pump did not pump out the water, but the clothes would not have spun out, not very likely by your description of problem .

Lastly low water pressure on your house line may have affected the valve shutting off, but this is also rare, again, shut off water to unit between use at house supply lines.(hot and cold)
good luck

Water not shutting off to begin wash cycle flooded room


Probably one of the water cut off solenoids not shutting off.
Do you use both hot AND cold water?
Try using only cold water first. If that works, maybe hot water solenoid is faulty.
Next, connect cold water to the HOT inlet, and try it again. This means you have now tried each of the solenoids, and maybe identified which one is faulty (assuming thats the problem!). If water wont cut off after trying this, the problem will be with whatever level sensing device it has, but I am not familiar with the model you have, so cant help there. Good luck.

Water is full in washer and wont drain or anything??


mostly drain problem or spin problem. It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump 
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. 

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. 

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
