Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Has your problem been solved?

My gwl11 is doing the same thing. It started a week or so beeping like it had an unbalanced load. Today I spent the time with it while it was filling and noticed it was emptying as it was filling. So I think the beeping was more of a time out for the filling. At least now I can clean my clothes on the permanent press setting....which is still unacceptable. So much for the thoughts of owning a "better" washer.
Wondering if the diverter was the fix for you too? My drain is fine. This washer has been in the same place for several years without any drain issues. It's about 3' up.
Thanks.

This is what is called in the trade as siphoning.
The drain pipe has to be a cetain height up on the wall.
if you ever hear it filling and draining at the same time,its siphoning.
check to see if your pump is on at the same time it is filling.
remember to always write which light s are flashing as this means a fault code.

Washer beeps as if unbalanced when in rince cycle and water is leaking a bit from somewhere, clothes are still damp. fisher and paykel


if it's leaking, take it somewhere to get checked, water and electronics don't end up mixing in a cheap way! the leak could be the pump or main seal. the unbalanced thing can be due to spring failure.

Fisher pakel water saver washer stopped early in cycle and is non stop beeping


www.ths.gardenweb.com/forum/laundry

try this website. I found answers to my questions on it that i did not find here.

repairman who came to my house yesterday said manuals are only available on dvd, not in paper anymore.

saw on the other website that you can order FP parts through Sears. have not tried, so don't know if that is reliable. maybe you can order a FP manual through Sears to tell you how to fix your issue.

Slow running washer


The beeping may be a code to tell you what the problem is, ie low water supply, overloaded, out of balance, etc. My user manual has a problem-solving page that explains the different beep sequences.
