Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a GW512 Pride washing machine that will not do anything for any more than a minute or two before the first light on the wash progress line and the second last light on the wash progress line both start flashing and it starts beeping and will go no further, it will not agitate or spin, the only thing that it will do is pump the water out for a short time

Hi just read your posting.Now the fault you have indicated is called SINGLE ROTOR POSITION SENSOR ERROR. The ROTOR SENSOR is located underneath your machine attached to the motor.Its purpose is to tell the computer in what position the drum is and adjust the speed of the bowl.The other less common reasons for the fault will be faulty wiring to the ROTOR SENSOR or your MOTOR CONTROLLER IS FAULTY.To test the ROTOR SENSOR unfortunately you must have a test meter called an RPS tester.Or if you can get the machine to spin, once it is spinning open the lid quickly the bowl will stop and the ERROR CODE you indicated will show again on the wash progress lights. If you want to try and just change the ROTOR SENSOR without testing it I can guide you throe the process step by step.But remember the fault could be the MOTOR CONTROLLER.So changing the ROTOR SENOR will not rectify the problem. Please reply back on how you would like to proceed and I will try to find another way to test the ROTOR SENSOR for you.By the way do you have or can borrow an electrical test meter?This will help checking the wiring.Looking forward to your reply

Hi - I have a Fisher & Paykel GW512 washing machine. it keeps giving an error showing these light on the cycle progress 01000010 (code 66)? I pulled the top off and if I disconnect the display module from...

I can't remember what fault 66 is off hand, but I can check tomorrow.
fault 130 (which has one extra 0) is a common fault, and will do what you say. it is an intermittant RPS fault. RPS is a small chip on the side of the motor, and they are a little touchy at times. easy enough to replace by removing motor cover, loosening the motor and removing the RPS from it's harness.

Fisher and Paykel Pride 5.5kg washing machine, everything works fine until you get to the spin cycle and then it just beeps and won't do anything more. What can I do to check or fix this?

My washing machine will not cut off on a high water level, but will on the medium. It will wash until it gets to the short wash and then it just beeps at me. I tried to advance it to the rinse cycle but the light just blinks and won't do anything more. It did drain the water out though. What's the problem and how do I fix it.
