At this stage i can suggest that the inlet valve may be faulty & giving off this burning smell.open the control box & see if one of the 2 inlet valves look distorted or brown or burnt looking.I'm wondering if it's not filling very fast also,this could also be an indication of the valve.

Gwl10 us won't fill


there's a few possibilities here.
is the water on?
does the machine start and turn the bowl, and not fill? then you have a valve fault.
when you press start, does it beep like normal? if not, you have a start button fault.

Code 1 - usually means on the later models of Fisher & Paykel is a faulty Motor Control Module, often though one would have to replace both as well as the display module.

Anyway - it sounds like the electronics are overheating hence the intermittent problems you are experiencing.

Burning Smell on Fisher and Paykel GW11 on spin and is not getting up to speed on spin cycle. Motor Bad?


Hi just read your posting.In my experience the only part on a Fisher and Paykel top loader machine that creates a burning smell is the pump.Try looking under the machine and you will see a black fan.This is your pump.Check to see if it has corrosion on it with a torch and try smelling it.I am sure you will find it is the pump that is smelling.Please reply for additional help and tell me how you got on with checking the pump.Looking forward to your reply.

I've got a fisher paykel gwl10 top load washing machine


Check the pipes leading to water pump for wetness also the door seal,If all pipes are dry and look ok then it could be due to the water seal and bearings braking down.
