Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a Model GWL 15 Washer that is about 3 years old. We have power to the washer, but it seems to have no power. No lights, nothing at all. We tried the unplug for 60 seconds and replug, but still no sign of life. Any suggestions? Does this machine have some sort of reset?

F&P machines are very simple mechanically, but quite complicated electronically.
If you have no lights on the display and power is getting to the machine the most probable cause is that the controller board and/or the internal fuse has failed. The question is why?
It's probably best in the long run that you call a F&P tech because he/she can test all the components that may have caused the controller to fail.
It's common for a primary fault to create a secondary fault further along the in the system.
Replacing a failed component without checking the rest of the machine can result in the part failing again, which is expensive.
A tech should warranty their work, and be able to show why the part(s) failed.
Probably not what you hoped to hear, but cheaper in the long run!
Good luck....Nomess

My GWL 15 pumps so hard water comes out of the


A washer cannot pump the water out too fast, regardless of what you have done or have been told, the problem is too do do with the drain outlet, I suggest you completely take apart the stand pipe and any other pipes connected, and thouroughly clean them .
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
