Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

Open Question

Washer wont turn on

The washer wasnt used for a couple of months. When I plugged it in the washer lights came on and went off again right away and wont turn back on. I've checked the common sense things like the fuse box and the plug in works. The cord is connected tightly to the unit. Is there a reset button or a fuse in the panel I'm not seeing? The washer worked fine until now. Please Help!!

    Exactly the same problem, but on a Smart Drive 703. No fuses - power in the right places but just won't turn on.

    I've figured out how to solve my problem. I'm buying a washer and dryer with a name I'm familiar with. This also doesn't require you to pay an "expert" online to try and figure out what the problem is. I'm learning Fisher and Paykel quality is very low and the price is very high. I have called repairman to look at the washer and 2 of them said it will cost more to fix than the things worth. This set isn't 2 years old yet and is actually used in a second laundry room for when the kids and grandkids are home. I have an Admiral set that is used constantly for 5 years now and no problems. I will go with Admiral or whirlpool for my lifetime. Sorry Fisher and Paykel your product just isn't what you claim it to be.

Pilot light wont stay onfor outside pool heater. Gas co made a service call & relit the pilot light it went out again 4 days later.


There is a thermo couple that keeps the gas on. The pilot light bracket has a small screen where the gas comes through that can get clogged and cause the pilot light to burn away from the thermo couple which would cause it to think the flame has went out and shut the gas off. Or the thermo couple has went bad itself. If you try cleaning the screen use canned air and gently blow it through the orfice once you have taken it off. If you don't know what a thermo couple is or looks like here's a picture of a generic one that will give you an idea. Usually there's a bracket that holds this in place. f1b528a.jpg

No power, hard starts


Have you replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs and wires? A plugged fuel filter will cause a fuel pump to go bad because it works harder to pump. It also may cause less pressure. Plugs, wires cap and rotor will cause lack of power and fail you on a load if they haven't been replaced for a while.

Inspect and clean the MAFsensor located in the intakt duct. It measures the air density and vvelocity of air and communicates with the computer for proper fuel ratio provision. It can be cleaned with CRC electrical cleaner spray. Do Not rub, brus, or otherwise touch thhe sensor. Just wash thoroughly and ley air dry. No compressed air. Good luck, Ned.

Just unplug the washer and wait a couple of minutes before you plug it back in. That should clear the code and let you get the door open.
