Question about Fisher and Paykel GWL11 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Smartdrive 7.5k f & p. First problem was that keeps beeping and wont start. Had technician and he did a bypass, which the lid can be open and will not stop the machine. It worked but have another problem which is that the machine keeps filling up, never stop, unless you stop it and apply advance cycle procedure. Got technician from same company, and he suggest to buy new machine as the part cost NZD$345.00. Please can you explain what happened and is there something I need to look at it. Thanks

First, the technician bypassed the lid switch which is a safety feature. The lid switch should be repaired / replaced -- this keeps the machine from spinning when the lid is up.

Secondly, the likely cuase of the machine overfilling is a malfunctioining water-level sensing sub-system. This system has a tube run from the bottom of the tub to a diaphragm pressure switch -- this switch shuts off the water inlet when the water gets to the proper level. The tube may be loose / disconnected / leaking, or the pressure switch may have loose conections or may be faulty.

More info, let me know.

New Control Panel instald all it does now is beep open lid stop beeping close lid nothing happens lights stay on help please


It is important to set the size switch setting into the Motor Controller's memory whenever a replacement Motor Controller and or Display Module is fitted
To set the size switch turn the power on at the wall and off at the machine. Press and hold the TEMPERATURE UP button then press the POWER button. SmartDrive will give 4 short beeps and the pattern of LEDs will change.
• Press SPIN SPEED UP button, the SPIN HOLD LED is on for (8.0kg) (650mm wide). • Press POWER to exit this mode.
If this doesn't work let me know

I have a Fisher and Paykel Smartdrive 9 washing machine that won't fill. It starts then stops and continues to do so, then stops altogether and beeps. Can anyone help??


The error code is displayed when its beeping.
I don't know the error code, so It can only be three things,
Out of balance switch,Lid magnetic reed switch,Or Rotor position sensor,Your error code would help me work out witch one of these are faulty. to work out your error code look at picture below.
Add up the lights that are on.

No water flow on Fisher and Paykel smartdrive 708 washing machine


Take the lid off,just open it & pull it straight up.There should be a little red button that the lid strikes against unless its a different model,in that case it has a magnetic reed switch under the right hand side of the hob.press this red switch instead of closeing lid,see if it fill with no problem.the lid may not be making good contact with switch..if thats not it then it may be the inlet valve..then you can try the hot,if theres no problem with hot then its the cold valve.
