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.

I have a 10 year old Fisher & Paykel GWL10 washing machine. Fault code 1 is coming up. The machine turns completely off. The longer it cools down, the longer it goes before turning off again. This...


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.

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.

I have a gwl10 and during the wash cycle there is water coming in but the drain pump keeps running during the fill cycle.


The pump itself is supposed to run during the fill portion of the REGULAR cycle. It is supposed to be mixing the incoming fresh water with your laundry detergent and pouring the solution on your clothes as the tub rotates slowly. If the water is draining out of the machine, then there has been some sort of issue with the DIVERTER VALVE. It either has a broken lever on it or an object has become wedged in it, holding it open all the time. If you try the PERMA PRESS cycle, you will probably find that cycle will work, as it does not use the recirculate function.

I would check the diverter valve first. You can tip the washer back and remove the hose clamps with no tools and shine a light up inside and look for an object. You also can inspect the lever and will clearly see if it is broken.

If the washer needs a diverter valve, the part number is a 426862P and is easy to change. You can get them from Fisher Paykel Parts:
http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/111-4/Diverter-Valve-GWL10-11-15.php

They also have downloadable service manuals (but I have pretty much told you what you need here)
Here is the GWL10 manual:

Fisher & Paykel top load intermittent running


Check your water pump... When they get wet or leak, they will shut down the machine control. If you wait too long you will blow out your machine control completely. You most likely need a new water pump and it is easy to replace with no tools needed. Your part number is a 420325P and you can get one from Fisher Paykel Parts direct:

Fisher paykel gwl10us wont fill


Both of you most likely are getting a "RPS Sensor Fault"
On a GWL10, when the motor rotor position sensor fails, it will act exactly like you describe. Many techs incorrectly replace the machine control or the water inlet valve(s). The RPS sensor is much cheaper. If you consult the tech sheet located under the control panel, you will see the fault code for RPS failure and I would bet the farm that the sequence of LEDs displayed when your washer faults out matches exactly with the RPS fault code.

The RPS sensor for GWL10 and GWL11 models is a part # 420296P and canbe purchased direct from Fisher Paykel Parts:
http://fisherpaykelparts.net/index.php?categoryid=111&productid=5

The procedure to replace it is a little involved but a handy person can do it. It would be best to consult the factory service manual and again, that can be purchased from Fisher Paykel Parts direct here:
