Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

When filling my F&Paykel washer the water is not a constant flow, it is filling in 'spurts', ie stop/start/stop/start etc...... I have tried cold, hot & warm water, all combinations of temp are producing the same action. It is a Smart Drive 085 5kg machine.

You most likely have a smart water temp sensor on your machine. It makes sure you have the proper water temp to dissolve your detergent. Even when set to cold, it will add some hot water. It sounds like your machine is working properly. If you feel you are haveing a problem check the water temperatures in your owners manual and then check them with a thermomater in the washer. If they are not correct you may have a bad temperature sensor. Good Luck and I hope this helped. Mca0824@aol.com

Starts and stops


A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

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.

If the water is coming into the machine in spurts, you may have a problem with the out of balance switch but it's very difficult to determine by your description & also without knowing the model number. The manufacturers call center is open 24/7 if you want to call them - you can get a number for a repair guy too from them.

If your washer does not stop filling, you have a problem with your inlet water valve at the rear top of the machine. You simply have to replace this.
