Question about Fisher and Paykel Fisher & Paykel Washer

Open Question

I have Fisher & Paykel 'Smart drive' top loading model washing machine. I started and filled the water into it and put the clothes and washing powder into it and then stopped it and allowed the clothes to remain wet for a while. But after half an hour when I switched on the power I noticed that though panel indicative lights were glowing normal but none of the operation was working including water inlet valve or motor etc. I don't know what is the problem but suspected 'Resetting' required. Could you please advice how I can rectify this problem.

while under the lid there should be a tech sheet, explaining varions flashing light codes and there respective fixes for each instance, replacing tha switch(out of bal switch) seems like a good start though. cant remember if jumping it out will help, might be looking for a break in the line rather than continuity through it

Hi Dale..
It sounds like you have a leaky inlet valve assembly. The part number is 421029P and is easy to replace. You can get one here:

SOURCE: Fisher & Paykel GWL11 Leaking water

If you cannot see the water leaking from the inlet valves, check the seal just above the water pump located directly under the drum. I am in the midst of awaiting parts to fix this very thing on my FP GWL11. This leak is dripping water directly onto the motor, causing it to trip the circuit breaker during drain/spin cycles.

Note... I have also had to have the inlet valve assembly replaced as well as it was not opening to allow cold water to mix with the hot.

Hope this helps.

Hi there
That fault is the pump blocked error (no change in water level).
i have a quick and easy way to solve this problem.

first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water(doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab on the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.

Nick

You need to check your lid switch & out of balance switch for
corrosion and replace if faulty.
Your out of balance switch is under the big yellow motor controller

Can only be reset by unplugging... Sounds like a bad controller or poor connection. Try different water temps, it same problem will need to call a Technician. F/P can tell you who is authorized to fix it. 888.936.7872

Black marks on clothes


I had a similar problem. We has placed the waste water hose into an old tub next the machine. The plug hole int he sink has become blocked with lint. When the washing maching was pumping water into the tub, the tub would fill with water, which would rise a level higher than the washing machine waste hose. What this appeared to do was cause the machine not to be able to properly pump out water, leaving this horrible back stuff in the wash which would end up all over the wash. Ensuring the plub hole in the tub was clear solved the problem immediately!
