Hi all
Looking for a schematic/service manual for a GW-711 Washer. There should have been diagrams under the lid, of course there wasn't.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks =)

If you brought this machine new, then you should find a service manual under the display panel
You will need to remove the panel, Next to inlet valves you should find a maual in a plastic cover...

Whirlpool duet wfw9450wr00

Michael, I too am looking for the same as you for my Whirlpool 8.5kg WFE1485BD. Similar machine as yours but newer. I need the schematic diagram to see how the door interlock switch works. Your problem sounds like that as well, have you tried manually working the switch with door open and checking with an ohmmeter? Does your machine give a door open warning light? I have pulled my door switch out and disassembled it but can't work out which contacts get switched. Please email me if you find a service schematic and I will do the same:

Looking or a service manual and schematics for the simpson eziset 605 washing machine. Thankyou

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Unfortunately this forum does not supply any type of manual, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer service manual' and you may be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
May I also suggest you try the manufacturer's web site direct? You may find, however, that it will supply schematics only to service engineers but good luck anyway.

Every load i put in small loads my machine stops with a UL error code

I’ll try to help I’m an owner like you.
From the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Service Manual;
UL = Latch Unlocked: Close lid tightly to enable locking.
That’s real helpful…. right?
Not sure how wash load size would cause the UL error to the display. From your post I believe you can’t complete a wash cycle at all is that correct?
Do the Lid Lock Latch’s look like they are projecting into the left and right side of the closed lid when you press the start button? If so you could try reseating the Left and Right Lid Lock Plugs a few times. There could be some corrosion issues preventing the Lid Lock signaling back to the Control Board. Those Lid Lock plugs can be difficult to unseat for the first time. The Left Lid Lock does suffer from corrosion issues with its proximity to the bleach dispenser. See page 34 of the SM. For the location of the Lid Lock The SM will show you how to rase the washer top from the base to access the Lid Locks.
Long response;
This may only help if you or someone you know has basic mechanical skills, you know how to use a Digital Volt Meter and you are a diehard DIY’er. A schematic diagram of the washer should be in the console of your machine.
From looking at the schematic and Service Manual “You can download the SM from that link” the lid is locked signaling is coming from the lid locks. I believe you are losing the Lid Is Locked signaling from the lid locks or a common wiring point in the machines wiring harness going back to the Control Board on connector P3-8. The issue is where, why and how to correct for that loss of signaling.
It looks like the Control Board wants to see +12VDC at connector P3-8 “Lid Lock Input” for the proper Lid Lock status signaling that the Lid Is Locked. I would take my DVM and trace for what I believe is the loss of signaling back to the Control Board input from the Left & Right Lid Locks. What is the possibility that both Lid Locks have failed with that status? I believe not much, from looking at the schematic it looks like the status inputs +12VDC and outputs from those Lid Locks run in parallel into the machines wiring harness to a common point in the washer wiring harness then to the Lid Is Locked input of the Control Board Connector P3-8.
The question for you is how deep do you want to get into troubleshooting if at all and how long can you tolerate the washer down time?
I’m a technical owner and I would dive right in for this repair. I also have spare parts. Depending on your skill sets and if you have a DVM you have to decide how to proceed. I hope a forum member with more hands on knowledge then I will chime in with their solution on troubleshooting this issue. I don’t simply what to say call in Repair Service without having a feel for your desire and skill sets to troubleshoot the issue.
If you call in a repair service run my response by them. I believe just changing out the lid locks or the control board will not solve the issue but I could be out in left field with my thoughts. I don’t recommend you do this….. but I would try to clear the UL error by taking an alligator clip lead and jumpering Pin P3-8 “Lid Lock Input” and Pin P3-3 or 4 +12VDC Out of the Control Board and see if this clears the UL error. If the error cleared that would rule out a Control Board issue. Rich

Control panel flashes a "FL" sign

Hello washerproble,
You mention the Service Manual good, that has more info then the troubleshooting guide packed in the console of the machine. The TS guide has the schematic which is very handy. Do you feel OK to troubleshoot and try a DIY repair?
I’m an owner and have not experienced your problem but I can simulate the “FL” error on my working FAV6800AWW. Looking at the schematic of this machine the control board wants to see input from either the left or right side lid lock to signal the control board that the “Lid Is Locked”. Can you select Spin only cycle and press the start button … do both lid locks close and lock the lid? If they did and you still take “FL” error you have loss of signaling “Lid Is Locked” form the lid locks back to the input of the control board. Pull the washer power cord from your 120VAC service outlet and try reseating the lid lock plugs into the connector of the left and right lid lock. Maybe a loose plug or corrosion, only one of them needs to work to signal the control board the “Lid Is Locked”. The left lid lock is the important one because of its dual signaling function back to the control board. It has the reed switch in it providing the signaling the “Lid Is Closed “ to the control board which is operated by the lid magnet. If you still take the ”FL” error you would have to start trouble shooting toward the control board to find the loss of “Lid Is Locked” signaling to the control board. The easiest thing to do if you feel the machine is a keeper is to invest in the left lid lock and replace it and see if that gets you back in service. Again only one lid lock is necessary to signal the control board the “Lid Is Locked”. This site has a link to parts just type model number The Left Hand Lid Lock is this p/n AP4033944
