Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Fisher Paykel Model GWL 11 washing machine. A couple of days ago the machine was operating, but when it came to the spin cycle it would not enter the cycle. It kept trying, but eventually let out several beeps. In order to find out what is wrong, I need to know how to read the blinking diagnostic lights, but the sheet stored in the board for that info has been misplaced. Can you help please with diagnostic / tech help on this appliance?

Yes I can help.Starting from left to right on the line that the lights are lit the fault code values of each are , Starting from the far left they go 1st=128 2nd=64 3rd=32 4th=16 5th=8 6th=4 7th=2 and 8th=1.Add up the lights that are lit on your machine and reply back and I will let you know what part is faulty.

Fisher and Paykel GWL 11 is getting the error code 37. Checked for blockages, none found and pump operates normally, no sounds, impeller turns freely. Still will not drain in spin mode. Any suggestions?


Hi just read your posting.Try this,Put a couple of books under each foot of the machine high enough so you can look under the machine at the pump.Now select a spin mode and push the start button.Does the pump turn on its own?Where is your machine draining the water to,Is it into the laundry sink or some place else.Please reply with this additional information and this will help me in diagnosing this fault for you.Looking forward to your reply.

Fisher and paykel washer gwl 11 us


ok You have a blown Motor controller module. There could also be another fault that caused this to blow up. eg a faulty drain pump, lid lock or Diverter valve, inlet valve. you'd need to use a ohm meter to test all these. cheers
