Question about Fisher and Paykel WL37T26DW1 Top Load Washer

Open Question

Fisher Paykel washer model WL37T26DW2 will sometimes put black dirt onto my clothes. I think it happens during spin cycle. I had a Tech look at it and he found no problem. But under the tub was black dirt which he says will drain out with next load. I think the fast spin throws the dirt back up into the tub and on my clean clothes.

If the machine still has water in it, the drain pump is jammed or there may be an obstrution in one of the hoses. It is most likely the drain pump. Switch off the machine at the wall and unplug it. Tilt machine against a wall and look underneath. On the right you will see the drain pump. It looks upside down. Unplug the wiring harness to the pump and remove pump by turning it clockwise while at the same time releasing the little white clip that holds the pump in place. Clean thoroughly and replace pump.

F & P EcoSmart top loaders have a diverter or "Y" valve in the pump discharge. This valve directs pumped water out of the machine tub (when the valve solenoid is deenergized; this solenoid operates very slowly, BTW). Conversely, when energized, the valve directs water into the top of the tub (during wash cycle, for example). If no water flows (either way) when the machine is operating, the problem lies with the pump or its conroller*.

If water is not pumping out of the tub (preceding the spin part of the cycle) -- you might notice that the machine beeps -- but continues to pour in at the top of the tub (you can hear the water recirculating), the problem likely lies with the diverter valve being obstructed (easy fix -- clean it), the solenoid is not working (less likely to be the problem, but possible) or the controller* is faulty (more likely).

To remove water from the tub, you can either bail it out or deenergize the solenoid. To accomplish the latter, you can remove the control panel shroud assy, (remove two sheet-metal screws), lay the shroud aside and you'll see the controller* situated beneath the push-button panel. Look for a pair of wires with a connector lying loosely on top of, and running across the controller* -- one of the wires is likely orange. unplugging that connector disconnects power to the solenoid and causes the valve to return to its normal position (that is, it is positioned to send the water out of the tub and into your house drain pipe in back of the machine).

You access the pump and diverter valve (I'm basing this on model GLW 10) from the underside of the machine. The washer will have a quart or more of water in it, so take it where you don't mind spilled tub water, turn the machine over so that the machine's front is on a braod cushion or foam pad on the ground/floor. Looking into the bottom end, tyou'll see the pump at about 7 o'clock and the diverter just above (at ~8 o'clock). The big circular thing in the middle is the DC motor. Have fun.

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel GWL10 question to Rescue Tech

First scoop out the water or run the pump in diagnostics mode and use a pitcher to bail out the water as it flows from the recirculation hose. Next, tip the machine back enough so that you can set something like a gallon paint can or other sturdy object under the front left corner of the machine to keep it propped up while you work under it. These machines are actually very lightweight. You do not remove the tub to service the diverter. There is a single 3/8" hex head bolt (which also is recessed with a phillips head) that secures the diverter to the base via a white nylon band. Remove the bolt, then remove the band, which is actually wrapped around the drain hose . Now remove the two wires, and the three hose clamps and all three hoses. Pop the valve out and take a close look at that diverter, if it is broken at the tab, this will be obvious.

The diverter is part number 426862P. You can order one here:

Fisher & Paykel Intuitive Eco switching itself off during cycle.

Could be a bad drain pump or controller or rotor position sensor. You will need a Tech to take a look. Unfortunately with these machines there can be many reasons for a failure. Call F/P to get a certified technician out there.

Washing machine makes buzzing noise

Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

Fisher Paykel washer GWL15

I have noticed this same problem and wonder if it because my FP washer wasn't draining properly and dirty water couldn't get out. See my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". I found one of my husband's socks when I removed the black motor/white plastic housing on bottom of washer. tip washer back and you'll see this electric motor. My post tells how to remove it. then you can look into that small space and see if there is something plugging it.

I am waiting on my replacemt motor, and hoping all the dirty streaks are gone. the water I drained out after i removed the sock was really grimy and gritty with dirt. I'm sure the sock has been holding a lot of junk in the bottom of the tub and it would end up on clothes during spin cycle. My issue has been going on for a few weeks and then the motor finally smoked which led to the sock discovery!
