Question about Fisher and Paykel IWL12 Top Load Washer

GWL10 US won't finish cycle

Started out with an out of balance load. Wife repositioned load and restarted. Became out of balance again. She came to get me because it was beeping every sec. I opened the top and it was over full of suds and half full of water. I removed the clothes and unplugged for 60 secs, then retried the wash. The same thing happened. It runs through the cycle, then stops at the end just before spinning with half a tank of water. Then it starts beeping every sec with the last light in each cycle lit up. I've tried leaving it unplugged for a full day, but no change in the pattern. The machine is about 4 years old.

    I have a simular problem. The washer works fine during the first and second spin cycle. After stopping while the water drains it acts like it wants to start up again but stops, beeps and flashes the control panel lights. I haven't been able to determine if there are any codes and unplugging it for a short while did'nt help. Any ideas? Thanks.

Had similar problem with not draining and then motor burned up. Took motor off bottom (see my issue "eco smart won't drain, smells hot" for how to remove motor--very easy. Found husband's sock in very bottom of drainage area and pulled it through quarter-sized hole where motor unit attaches. I couldn't see this sock when looking from above between the tubs.

Hi Mate, I had the same problem and then looked on the web to find that all I need was a $40 out of balance switch. Although the old one looked ok it had corrosion inside, bought a new switch and installed it myself, easy, ask the F&P parts supplier if you are not sure.
Cheers,
Dan

Out of balance on spin cycle (machine is level)


The balancing straps that hold the drum in balance could be broken or the springs could be wore out.

The machine stops after the wash cycle and won't finish.


The code is UE

load too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance
detection and correction
system. If individual heavy
articles are loaded (bath
mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the
washer will make several
attempts to restart the spin
cycle. If an imbalance is still
detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
displayed.
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.
