Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have an F&P smart drive model GW709AU and have had to replace the Main Board and inlet valves twice. How long should the board and valves last as it costs around $500.00 each repair. It was a water problem first time maybe age the second time as I have just worked out it was about 4 years between repairs.

Hi just read your posting.From the information on your posting you have changed your Motor Controller twice and both valves twice in 4 years,Is this correct?And both times the cost of the repair has been in the range of $500,Is this correct?In my experience as a service tech the grey control modules and water valves should last a bit longer than 4 years.It also depends on how much you use the machine and how big the loads are.By the way did you ring Fisher and Paykel for both repairs or an independent service company?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you further if needed.

Turn machine OFF on the front panel. Hold down the Water Temp Down button and press the POWER button. Release buttons. You are in Diagnostic mode.With your service sheet ,Diagnostic chart will explain where the error lights pattern and the path to your solution are.My advice is this....there is a known problem with the wire harness connectors,and the contact that is made at the point of connection.One at a time remove each connector starting at your main control board ,some where there is a loose connection.

1E code display. Checked water pressure, changed inlet valve and float. Still 1E code


You need to check the voltage on the inlet valve coil terminals to see whether the main control board is actually switching the valve on to take in water.
If not replace the main control board PCB as this is the only other problem remaining.

Whirlpool 6th sense washing machine main board problem, twice changed with in 3 and 1/2 years. Now inlet valve problem. why this product is poor quality or what?


There can be design issues or the board does not perform to the condition it is exposed. You can ask for extended warranty on the board and clarify for the failure . Also check for moisture within, check your voltage, check the power sockets.

Check out the fuses on the main controller board if they are fitted. If you need a new motherborad you can get one from Fisher & Paykel in Australia at http://www.fisherpaykel.com.au/customercare/contactus/

GW709AU


You may have all the symptoms ofa faulty main board. from my memory the main driving motor is 6 phase - normally one hears of single phase or three phase- anyway if a phase is faulty or open circuited it will cause this problem. you in all likely hood have a faulty phase Transistor/ or whatever that is gone open circuit. Try a second hand board. Ps in NZ, old FP washing machines makes good power generators.

Overfilling then leaking through the door and drawer


Almost definitely the pump filter is blocked.
Its happened twice on mine. Tilt machine forward to expose filter, undo clips on flexible hoses and remove filter. clean it out and replace. problem solved. about an hours job.
