The pumps on F&P washers are known to make whirring, and screeching noises. It could mean that the pump is failing and that it should be changed.
It is not a big job, and takes very little time, as long as the machine has been emptied before the job is started.
Probably best to call a tech, because he/she can check for blockage and also check the pump motor 'resistance', which is reccomended by F&P.
TECH TIP To remove the pump motor, lean the machine back against the wall and study the pump and the 'latch' which secures it. Remove double wires, rotate the pump motor anticlockwise, 'unlatch' and comlete the removal. Disconnect the earth wire.
Replace the pump in reverse order...
Good luck....Nomess

Machine stopped and bells rang


It sounds like the water pump has seized judging from the noise that you were hearing.
When the water seals become old and worn, water seeps through and ends up in the pump motor bearings, which corrode and eventually fail.
Open the machine up and check the pump, they are not repairable, will have to be replaced should this be the case.

Tip

Dishwasher Water Temperatures


No matter what detergent you use, the "pills", powder, or gels, they are meant to activate PROPERLY, key word PROPERLY, at a minimum of 120 degrees Fahrenheit in a dishwasher. I recommend ALWAYS using the "high temp wash, boost, etc" on ANY cycle in order to keep the water HOT! Always run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher! The unit is tied in to the hot water line under the kitchen sink and requires very little water to fill--by the time the hot water finally reaches the dishwasher, chances are it'll be running on cold or tepid water--the detergent won't dissolve or activate the way it's supposed to. Not only that, in between fills during the cycle, especially in winter, the water will cool down in the pipes too much. Normally, the water heating selection will maintain water temps in the 130-150 degree range! If someone has been sick in the house, turn on the SANI RINSE if your unit has it! This won't stop--but it'll help prevent cross contamination--people getting sick from the dishes--this setting normally kicks the water temp up to 190 degrees during the rinse cycle.

My F&P GW601 stops during final rinse, and beeps an error condition.


  • I just fixed a F&P GW612. There was a darning needle stuck in the drain motor pump stopping the propeller from spinning around. I fixed it for my mum by watching a couple of You Tube videos. Easy job to do. Took me about 1.5 hours including drawing out the water from the drum with a bucket & jug first. Lay the machine on a soft mat, remove the motor pump from underneath, clean it out. (You could find a foreign object such as a coin, cloth, rubber band etc.)
    Put it back together & test if it's pumping out water at the rince cycle by doing a low water wash cycle. So happy, job done & I saved my mum some money!!

My fisher & paykel GW712 gets to the rinse setting and di=oesnt rinse and then wont spin... how do i fix


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. In this case the fault seems to be with the water level controller as it takes time to sense and trigger the mtoro.If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Water not pumping out F&P GW712


If you can hear your pump running then your drain hose might be clogged, if not it is probably the pump and will need more in depth troubleshooting.
