Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

We have a Fisher and Paykel toploader, smart drive 603. After setting up a washing cycle and pushing the start button, the machine starts for a few seconds with the water filling in in short bursts (rather than through a continuous flow) and then stops, beeps and the following lights come on: short wash, 2nd rinse light, spin light and spin-speed lights 'slow' and 'hold'. Is this an error message and if yes, what does it mean? Your help is most appreciated.

Hi Luisa_sgro. I have the same issue as the original poster and have taken a picture of the fault code - please see attached. I really hope this can be solved as i would hate to see this machine in a landfill somewhere.<img src="/uploads/images/245C15E.jpg" />

    Not too sure if my picture was attached correctly as i can't see it :(

    The fault code lights are as follows:

    Spin speed - Hold and Slow
    Water level - Low and High
    Wash progress - Spin (red), light between Rinse and Spin (Amber), Short Wash (Green) and 2 to the left of Short Wash (Green).

My Fisher & Paykel 708 smart drive washing machine won't starts and beeps.


That is Error code 9
9.
(00001001) Phase 1 to 5 - Size Error
Phase 4 to 5
The Display size switch setting does not match that stored in memory.
Action - Reselect the size of Smartdrive by using the SIZE SETTING MODE. Push and hold
the water temp up button, then press the power button to enter SIZE SETTING MODE. Three
LEDs are used to identify size. The cold water temperature LED identifies 5kg. The low water
level LED identifies 6kg. The hold spin speed LED identifies 7kg. If the product has not been
setup before all 3 LEDs will be on. To set the size for 5kg push the wash temp up button then
the power button. To set the size for 6kg push the water level up button then the power button.
To set the size for 7kg push the spin speed up button then the power button. This locks the size
into memory. To check the size is set, start a cycle.

Fisher Paykel washing machine Smartdrive 703 Advance, Power and Start buttons are non responsive when pushed. Is there a part that can fix this. Does the control panel have to be replaced?


Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive beeps and stops during rinse cycle. If I hit pause and wait and restart it eventually continues. It seems like it has problems detecting water level.
