Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer
I have tested all the basic, power from panel, change outlet and check the power at the main controller and yes I can measure 118 V. But "pickel" does not provide electronic diagram ... so I open the controller to see for obvious fuse and no fuse. So I am stuck and I am asking the expert before I call the service man and charge me arm/leg to replace panel. I now really questioned the quality of this product.
The fuse is built onto the control board. It is not designed to be replaced. My 3 year old machine lost the water pump and blew the fuse. About $375 to fix. I am buying the new pump and will attempt to replace the fuse on the board. I hope there are no other bad components.

My 4 yr old f/p will not turn on...no lights, no sounds...nothing. I changed out the Pump drain motor because somehow water dripped on it and it burnt out. Seems like alot of people with the same problems. F/P should fix all these same ocurances for free. A high quality machine should not do this. This reminds me of Acura MDX's with bad transmission problems. Everyone had problems but they won't warrant for over 100,000 miles. Mine went out at 105,000 miles and they **** big time.
Just like f/p does.

Ouch, too bad. Ours just did the same thing. It's seven years old now, and has already had a couple service trips. Seems like it's time for a front-loader.

Turns out this problem is common to the GWL11. The water-pump goes out which then causes the circuit board to fry. It's unclear as to why one begets the other. Cost for a repairman: $272.00 in sw MO. The good news is that F&P has re-dsigned the waterpump to eliminate the early failure issue. Bad news is that it doesn't interchange with the GWL11 :(
