Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing machine will not turn on.

Fisher & Paykel Model GWL 15 US- Product 96155

My problem began with an unbalanced load. I checked the load and it did not appear to be out of balance but I shifted the clothes and hit the Start/ Pause button and it went into the rinse cycle. After washing a few loads and having the machine stop at the beginining of each rinse cycle it completely shut down and the power light will not come on. It is dead.
I checked the electrical power to it, unplugged it for 60 seconds, checked to see if the machine is level, checked all water hoses and screens on the machine and the water line.
I do not use water softener in my machine. I wash with hot water often.
Any suggestions? Thank you.

    It probably should have put up a fault code by a sequence of lights across the top.I fear that your pump was burning out & not pumping the water,i'm worried that the pump has now blown the main board.can you reply back with what iv'e said.

Hi just read your posting.Have you checked the power point for power with a toaster or hair dryer?If there is power to the machine then there are 2 reasons why it is not powering up.1st-- the drain pump is open circuit 2nd the control module is faulty.1st empty the machine by hand so you can look underneath the machine by tipping it back far enough to see the pump.Now the pump will either have a red or black fan on it ,or you will see no fan and that means you have the new style pump.please reply with the type of pump you have and if you have or can borrow an electrical test meter and i can guide you step by step to find out if the pump is faulty or the controller or both.

Does It just shake bowl left & right, it will soon give you fault code 56.
Well its a board problem you will need to get technician to fix this board, three resistors(R129,R130,R131) need to be changed for a 1MegOhm resistor.

Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer won't drain


Could be something in the pump. The pump is on the bottom of the tub.
It has a locking tab which you release and then twist the pump a hair and it will fall out. Warning: Have rags ready! I have the original GWL service manual and the GWL 11 supplimental manual. Let me know if you want them.
