Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have model # GWL 11. serial #uun636512. When I turn the power on to the machine, the second light in the status bar doesn't light up. I tried to reset by running through the other cycles until the end. The light still remains unlit when powering on. PLEASE HELP! Thank you.

    is that light the regular button? if the machine still works on the other cycles then it is your display board that is faulty. when you say status bar is that the wash progress lights or the wash cycle lights with descriptions like regular or wool etc? please reply for further help

Hi there,If this isn't affecting the wash cycles in any way then you don't really have to worry about it to much.it's just a dead LED (light emmitting diode)just a dead light.or if you are really worried about it you can change the whole display board & pay $$$.Or if your really confident to repair it yourself you can buy an LED & break out the soldering iron,i personally wouldn't worry about it.The only time that light would be needed would be if the machine ever broke down & was displaying a fault code useing those lights across the top.Hope this was good advice.

The Display Module has had difficulty communicating with the Motor Controller.
Primary Source: Display Module.

2. If still faulty, replace the Display Module
3. If still faulty, replace the Motor Controller. If the new Motor
Controller corrects the fault, then refit the original Motor Controller.

I cannot find your mothers IWL16 model, but I have found various similar machines that are the same phase as your GWL11 machine, the electronics in there although different are compatible, you can swap the drain pumps, there almost universal, avoid the drive shaft machine, fix the other one If you want further help, post a photo of both pcb's (the electronics) After swapping your machine will stil require programming which is simple enough

Screeching noise after water starts going in


Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.
