Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15
Washer just quit shortly after starting. None of the buttons operate, cord good, outlet good.
Sounds like your motor controller is faulty Does your machine light up any buttons or if you have the display model, does the LCD display turn on? Is you machine completely dead, no lights no sounds? If it is first check the power point with a toaster or hairdryer just to be 100% sure it is not the power point.Now the two things that cause the machine not to power up are --1-- the motor controller is faulty or the drain pump is faulty.If you have an electrical test meter or can borrow one I can guide you throe to isolate the faulty part.Please reply for further assistance .

Electricity and water can be a hazard which could be life threatening, but you can operate electrical equipment in a wet environment if you are careful and follow safety precautions. Most import, make sure the electrical outlet you are using for the pressure washer has a working ground plug. Just because an outlet has three prongs does not mean the ground is working. You need to use an outlet tester which is inexpensive from a hardware store or use a multi meter to test the ground for conductivity to earth ground. Your power washer should have a working GFI (Ground fault interrupter), and you need to press the test button to make sure it is working. If your power washer does not have a GFI purchase one from a hardware store. I would also plug the power washer directly into the electrical outlet since an extension cord could have a bad ground connection and will cause the power washer to pull more current from the outlet. Make sure the power washer is raised of the ground so it will not sit in a pool of water. If you follow the safety precautions you should be safe but keep in mind water does not carry the electrical current, it is the impurities in the water which carry the current. Therefore, water could be more conductive depending on the impurity of water. However, it sounds like a loose connection in the power washer which could also be an o-ring or a washer is broken and it would b a good idea to have it fixed.
