Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't power on. We have a GWL11 6 years old. began very slight leak from bottom over past few weeks. Just recently control panel won't turn on. unplugged per user manual. Outlet is hot, tested it. adjusted prongs on power cord to help w/contact. All to no avail. Any idea the electrical issue and replacement part cost?

    When I mean the outlet is hot, I'm talking about the electric power outlet in the wall, not water. Figured the control panel was fried, but curious about cost of the part. Seems only F&Paykel have that info. Any experience or ideas on the control panel cost? Thanks!

I think there are too many issues and might not be able to estimate the cost as there seems to be multiple faults.
In the first place the control panel not switching On is a big problem because unless the control panel works we cannot move up in the program to check the functions for a proper working of the washer.
So if the control panel board is faultly even after there is supply in the unit, I think we have a tough decision to make.
However if there is some connection fault then try to tighten the connections to switch on. the leak can be from the base of the ttub, the hose or the drain pump.
The indication of warm water at the drain is not good as i presume that the drain valve is powered and hot===indicates fault in control board.
So overall I suggest that you must decide after checking cost of a new control panel. If there is damage to tub evaluate one again.
Hope this advice helps

    Yes if your plug was hot there is fault at the powerr supply. The cost may range from about $80-100 with the dealer.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Leaking water on spincycle


I have the same problem with my washer. The problem just began a few weeks ago. It is splashing out the front left corner of the tub and running down the inside of washer and then leaking out the bottom of the frame. It is just enough water to be annoying. The washer is about 6 years old.
Model: FAV6800AWW
Serial: 11277017EG

Any ideas??? Help!

Bad CV Joint?


Did you notice any leaks from the power steering? If you did not notice any leaks, the only place for the fluid to go is in the bellow boots(the accordion boots on the rack and pinion system). Go underneath and if no leaks are obvious, take a small screwdriver and poke a small hole in one of the boots. If fluid comes out, you're looking at replacing the rack and pinion. This would also explain the excessive play you're feeling in the steering.

Having problems turning on 2 year old Phillips


Philips TVs tend to have issues with bad capacitors in their power supplies. Failing capacitors tend to have slightly different ESR (equivalent series resistance) values when they have been left off, versus after they are warmed up and charged up. Either a new power supply board or replacement of the faulty capacitors will fix the problem.
