Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

Fisher and Paykel MW051 washing machine.

A friend was unaware that he should put an occasional hot wash through the machine to give it a good clean out. On trying to do a hot wash the water simply dribbles in and after a few minutes the hot indicator lamp flashes and the machine beeps. I've cleaned the filters, swapped hoses and tried putting the hot water through the cold solenoid on a cold wash but still just a dribble. The water temp is not overly hot and has reasonable pressure. Any ideas ?

    Yes that's right. I think it may be the hot water pressure after all. Although there's a good flow at the tap, I can stop it with my thumb. You agree ? Thanks for your input.

    So you hooked the hot water to the cold water port and still get a dribble? did I read this right?

If you can stop it with your thumb there is NO DOUBT it is water pressure.. Pull the hose and check the tap direct, that will tell you if you have a plumbing problem of just a funky hose...
Good luck

I have a Fisher & Paykel MW051-U washer that occasionally won't respond to button presses on one particular button. I suspect either the switch itself or the control board on which it is located (which...

Hi just read your posting.Now the problem with your machine is the display board.It will be blue in color and under the decal that you push is a switch.If there is a crack in the decal where you press this button then the switch underneath will be corroded due to moisture getting throe the crack.Unfortunately you have to change the display board which the switch is part of the circuit board.If you are in Australia then I can give you the name of a place that repairs them which will save you some money.If you undo the top panel screws you can assess the display board.Please reply on how you got on or if you need help in replacing the display board.Good luck.

access through the back panel to have a look at the drain pump which is likely your fault. Run a cycle and watch it when it drains you will likely see water leaking from the pump (about $25 and easy to change)
