If the washer is also filling slowly it's likely to be the hot or cold water solenoid (either one or both - not that an expensive a repair)

SOURCE: Smart drive 5.5 washing machine lights show power on but no go

OK Problem located (without Diagnostics) , the problem was a faulty START/PAUSE button. I took the display board apart and fiddled with the button (whilst the power was UNPLUGGED) Starts almost every time, when it does`nt fiddle some more.

If the light that stays on when beeping is 7th from the right then the machine has a pressure transducer which is out of range, the motor controller module (electronic) will need to be replaced.

Although slightly unclear these are the only possible error combinations for the leds on the machine as you look at it with red always on the end right hand side.

(11) 1011 (Green - nil - Orange - Red) - pressure problems perhaps a blockage in the tube to bowl.
(13) 1101 (Green-Orange-nil-Red) - pump is faulty
(15) 1111 (all lights on) - display module is faulty

I do not recall that the leds across the spin speed actually means something.

Good luck

My f&p gw611 Fills up but then wont wash.the 2nd


Most possibly be Error code 56,
Is common in 11 series machines & early series 12.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

I have a Fisher & Paykel Smart Drive 9 Excellence 7.5 GW709 washing machine and when turned on it tries to pump water into the machine a few times but then stops and i get an error code X000000XX...


Hi just read your posting.From the information in your posting the error on your machine is called, Repetitive Rotor Sensor Error.This means that the most likely cause of the fault is the Rotor Sensor.This component is located underneath your machine attached to the motor.The other 2 reasons that this fault is occurring is faulty wiring to the rotor sensor or a faulty control module.To test the rotor sensor unfortunately you need an RPS TESTER.But if you have an electrical test meter I can help you test the wiring to the rotor sensor.Please reply and let me know how you would like to proceed and I will help you as much as I can.

Hi,

I have exactly the same issue, which first appeared yesterday. Following your advice, the lights that are lit are 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th. The SLOW & HOLD spin speed lights are lit, along with constant beeping :)

Washing machine wil not fill - tries several times then stops and all lights except 4 go out


That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

FP GLW10spins but clothes are still wet and lights/beeping are on


Most likely your filter is blocked, check out where this is and clean out well. Second there could be block in your exit pump preventing the water from being pumped out. If possible call or see your dealer for help, but you could do the thing yourself. You can click on troubleshooting above in blue. There should be several solutions for your model. The washing machine companies do not tell you how to do these things, so they can send in their techs to make more money.

For new buyers - ASK WHERE THE FILTER IS, WHAT ARE THE VARIOUS CODES, SERVICE. Where is the tech sheet?
