Question about Fisher Paykel EcoSmart GWL15

1 Answer

Cuts the power

Hi my Fisher & Paykel "excellence & pride" lights up but then trips the power switch outside when I try turning it on. It is 4 1/2 years old. I phoned Fisher & paykel repairers and is going to take a week for someone to come out. They said they had a lot of calls about these machines tripping the power so I was wondering if anyone knew what the problem was and how much it could cost to fix?

My Fisher Paykel DD603I top draw whines when it is first turned

The lid seal on the top drawer is faulty and needs replacement. It might be cut or damaged and is obstructing the drawer from closing. THis also may have caused the flood switch to trip as water can leak if drawer is not sealed.

The part that needs to checked and/or replaced if necessary is the out of balance switch assembly. Either the switch is welded together and doesn't trip for the machine to cut out when an out of balance condition occurs or the switch lever is damaged or dislodged. The out of balance switch is located on the right hand rear corner of the cabinet. Lift the top cover up to access and check the out of balance switch which part number 420313.
