Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

Water Fill Issues

My Fisher Paykel machine takes forever to fill and more than often will error out before it reaches the firt wash cycle. I have well water and assumed that there was sediment in the hose. Several times when I disconnected the cold water hose cleaned it out then reconnected it the problem went away - this doesn't work anymore -- could I need to have the cold water valve replaced? Warm water run ten times faster than the cold water !?

Try unscrewing the hose at the back of the machine. There should be another filter there. If this doesn't solve the problem replace the fill valve. This part is not expensive. Take the old one with you. a generic is much cheaper. I have bought new for under $5. You can fix this yourself.

    Try to buy an external filter. They sell these for comercial machines and install it in the cold water line. (It just screws into the washer hose) You really don't need one in the hot line as the crud will settle out in the water heater.

Turn off the water and remove the inlet hose at the machine. There is a filter screen there and it may be plugged up.

A failed inlet valve is not uncommon in F&P machines. The hot valve is different to the cold one, so don't exchange them. Not a big job for a tech to do in-laundry. Good luck....Nomess

Washing machine cycle far too long


Hi Fiona.I believe the cold valve is probably faulty & is not flowing fast Its probably dribbling water in?taking forever to fill.the machine should be giving up & beeping at you if thats the case.If you have a faulty cold valve then switching to warm won't help as the hot valve will close itself off to compensate for the lack of cold water..afterall you have told the machine to fill with warm,,if it cant make warm water because of a faulty cold valve then the hot will decrease to a point where its not letting any water thru..try a hot only wash..if it goes thru wash cycle ok then good chance its cold valve problem.wow i hope that helped.

Try taking the cold hose of at the tap and check to see if has a little mesh filter in there. This could be blocked up with gunk.

Fisher and Paykel washing machine fills and won't stop filling...


If the water stops when you shut if off at the wall you have a bad cold inlet valve, or the valve is getting a constant "open" command from the controller and thus the controller is faulty.
