Won't spin gw608u


Fault code 41 if those are the correct lights. Service manual says faulty temperature thermistor & change the control module. Good luck with that as that model is nearly 20 years old and I don't think F&P supply that module any more.

Won't spin gw608u


You need to call a repair person. Or if the washer is still on warranty trade it in. This sounds like a problem from the factory

Gw608u short wash and spin lights


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, I do not have the lights decode for your Fisher and Paykel (Whirlpool) model but try this just in case ;-0)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Fisher and Paykel washing machine will not stop washing. It does not advance between the cycles. It fills, then washes, then drains, and then starts all over again. It doesnt move beyond the wash cycle...


Fisher & Paykel GW608U Top loader washing mashine. On power up it will pass the self test, but then it goes to error (single beep every second and lights: green 3rd, 4th green and 7th orange from left are on). Could you advise on the problem please or supply error message codes table. Greatly appreciate your help and looking forward hearing from you
