Fisher paykel gwl15 squeal while filling

1. Does the squeal go away if you choose a different temperature, eg, a hot wash?
2. Check the strainers/filters where the inlet hoses screw onto the washer:
- turn off water at the wall.
- start a warm wash to release pressure from hoses, then switch off machine.
- remove inlet hoses and inspect for blockage/debris. Then, place hoses directly into where the clothes go then carefully turn the water back on at the wall to check flow.
- Also check strainers/filters at other ends of hoses.
3. If all seems OK, new water valve(s) may be required. The rubber in the water valves can harden over time.

Fisher and paykel smart drive 608 6.5 kgs has running well for ages but recently while finishing water filling it makes a warning beep sound and start leaking from the bottom,anyone there to help me pls

Hi just read your post.Now when the machine beeps a series of lights will light up on the wash progress lights. The spin light is number 8 and the other end of the lights is number 1 which is long wash, i think.

Please reply with the answer to this question and i am sure i can help you. Regards Lu

Fisher & paykel washer GW703 only letting water in spurts. takes forever to fill.

Hi just read your posting. Sounds like you have an out of balance switch problem.This is the most likely cause on the information you have posted. 80% of the time it is the switch and about 20% of the time it is the rotor sensor which is attached to the motor.Just a question or two. Does your machine stop during filling and light up a series of lights and it starts to beep.If it does ,from left to right is it the 3rd and 6th or 1st and 7th etc please reply and I can guide you throe what action needs to be taken.

The machine does not work

Ok this fault is telling me you have a faulty RPS(Rotor Positioning Sensor) in this machine. The RPS sensor is located in the motor Stator. To replace you need to remove the motor rotor then the motor Stator. you want to be careful with this part when fitting it as they can break.

Please rate my advice.
