Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine cycle far too long

I have a fisher & paykel intuitive eco washing machine trouble shooting. I have noticed recently that it is taking at approx 150min for a load to be done. 90% of the time I do a cold wash but the time factor doesnt seem to change when I do a hot/warm cycle. I have gone through the manual and done a Factory reset, did not change, clean filters to hoses at tap end of machine, did not change, I have also done a clean bowl cycle as well Can you help
Thanks Fiona

Hi Fiona.I believe the cold valve is probably faulty & is not flowing fast Its probably dribbling water in?taking forever to fill.the machine should be giving up & beeping at you if thats the case.If you have a faulty cold valve then switching to warm won't help as the hot valve will close itself off to compensate for the lack of cold water..afterall you have told the machine to fill with warm,,if it cant make warm water because of a faulty cold valve then the hot will decrease to a point where its not letting any water thru..try a hot only wash..if it goes thru wash cycle ok then good chance its cold valve problem.wow i hope that helped.

Hi just read your posting.Unless the machine shows an error code the diagnostic mode will not help.Does the machine agitate in the wash cycle?Does the machine drain the water completely?Does the machine spin the clothes dry.Please reply with additional information on the questions I have posted and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Your pressure value switch is malfunction. First thing you can try that is cheap to fix is to try clean the hose that connects to the outer tub. A lot of times there is algae develops after years of washing.

Our Fisher & Paykel Washing Machine is not spinning. It gets to the spin cycle and sits there counting down. The fault code eventually said Service fault 37. What does that mean?


Emptied washer, tipped it on its side, detached drainage pipes underneath, and pulled out old fabric/lint/blockage with tweezers. Plugged in, switched on, all good.

Have an eco washer gwl 10. worked fine for years today stopped wokring. tried all trouble shooting and diagnostics. always coming up error code 43. replaced switch and no different. any idea?


Hi there

Try bridging the switch out(join the wires together) and if that doesnt work you may have to replace your motor controller module.

I hope this helps.

Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco switching itself off during cycle.


Could be a bad drain pump or controller or rotor position sensor. You will need a Tech to take a look. Unfortunately with these machines there can be many reasons for a failure. Call F/P to get a certified technician out there.
